Ripstop II - Serrated
We built these knives for the non-conformist in you. The Ripstop I & Ripstop II are super-lightweight frame lock concepts that deliver bold strength and high functionality. The weight of the all stainless steel construction knife is made lighter by the intriguing handle and blade design. There's no bulk in the thin, streamlined handle. Dual thumb studs make opening the blade a snap. Closing it is a simple one-handed step.
You can easily stow this knife in your pocket with the strong pocket clip

Have had this knife for about 6 years, it has seen a lot of use and a lot of abuse. Have never had a single problem with it; blade still sharpens easily, action is smooth, and I have never once had to tighten a screw.
Awesome blade, well performing knife for all condotions. But mone is not stainless mine has rust spots forming in random spots on the blade, several on the hip clip, all over the colapsable sheeth, and some on the exteriou blade hindge. Still a nice knife though...
I've had this knife for awhile now, I carry it daily, and use it daily. I once lost it in the snow and found it 2 weeks later, I've had it multiple times underwater during camping trips, and it looks like I just bought it. The only thing id like to see is a Ripstop II fine bladed version, that ways its easier to sharpen.
i have had both styles of this knife and have used them for seven years. if i lose them i go out and get a new one the same day because i use it every day
Big 5 is selling the RipStop II for $19.99. Framelock design, serrated blade. Gerber makes quality knives (In the Pacific NW, so it's a home town product for me) .
This sort of design -- integral frame lock, cut away handle -- has been around for a while, and proven. All stainless construction. I wish Gerber would specify blade length and steel composition.
Looks like a handy pocket knife at a handy price.
i used this knife all the time. i lost it up in the mountains sledding, I liked it so much i had to buy another one
Had the knife for less then a year and got a crack in the part that locks the blade into place so now it swings open and close as it feels. sending it in to gerber for the warranty but up until it broke it was a great product and i have many other gerbers that are great so i think it was just a freak deal that happened
I bought both the Ripstop I & II and I must say I am very happy with both. Light weight, sharp, easy to use. Overall great knife for any situation.
I have carried this knife with me almost every day and use it 3-5 times/day for about three years. It is easy to open and securely locks in the open position. It fits my big hands well. I have this knife in three sizes.
It works well as my money clip and it really holds its edge.
never breaks, works in every condition, easy to clen, just a great knife
I have had this knife for about 3 years and wear it every day. It is thin and not bulky in your pocket and the pocket clip is very tough.
