This knife has made me a Gerber buyer for life! Do need to keep up with blade maintenance as it will go dull but only after extended daily use on the construction site doing everything and anything I need it to! Wish it was still in production though.
This knife is in my pocket right now, and I carry it just about everywhere. However, after a few weeks of use, the axel of the blade got jammed up and was in no way able to open with one hand. Somehow, it fixed itself and now it works good as new. I don't know why some other reviews say they've had problems with the quality. I never have.I still don't know why it's been discontinued though...
This blade has never let me down. It has stayed sharp and been used in many live major level rock shows (Kansas, Foreigner, Blue Oyster Cult, Styx, etc.) for multiple reasons and performed well. I feel naked without this knife as it saved me once from being jumped by two guys as I clicked this little bad boy out and they stopped in their tracks as they saw i meant business and was in a fighting stance. It has my vote, sad it's discontinued.
This has been my EDC knife for 3 years now, and it's been able to handle everything I've thrown at it. The handle feels better than you'd expect from aluminum, especially in a reverse grip. The silver finish on the aluminum also tarnished quickly, but I like it. It gives the knife a worn-in look. The blade is somewhat high-maintenance, going dull quickly but easy to sharpen, even the serrations, and again the finish isn't the best. The blade has about a quarter-inch of play when closed, but I've never had a problem with it. It locks solid when open. The knife as a whole can take what it needs to and not complain.
This knife is my first brand name knife but my review of it is not in anyway biased because of this. I have used many knives and compared to the rest this is one of my favorites by far. I just picked it up today and was joyed over how the thumbstud is flush with the handle. Most other knives open easily if stored in your pocket over time by the thumbstud getting caught. I wish the tang stud was larger but it will have to do. Now all that is left is to get a full-auto gerber knife and the ultimate knife as well as hunt down a tanto serrated varient of the traverse.
Yes, you heard me, this knife is a P O S. Virtually zero hold on the blade in the closed position, the blade practically falls open under its own weight. I value my fingers too much to carry this thing around. Avoid. Oh wait, it's been discontinued, I wonder why???
Compared to everything else I've got in this price range, this is trash. I payed the same for a Spyderco Tenacious and its a lot better in every way. The lock on this is the worst I've ever used. Can be easily disengaged with a small amount of pressure. Blade and handle materials are low grade and cheap. After only two weeks of use, the black finish on the blade and handle started coming off. Also, the pocket clip is weak and easy to break. And the thumb studs keep loosening. On that thought they are useless because there is no way to get your thumb onto it to open it. There should have been a flattened area leading up to the thumb stud. Absolutely no jimping. The tip broke from stabbing a cardboard box. Also, a lot of left, right, forward, and back movement. Avoid this knife at all costs. I regret ever buying this.Not worth $10.
Got this knife as a gift, and I must say I'm surprised at how sharp it is. One of my more sharp knives I have, but still no match against my Smith and Wesson Border Guard knife that cost around the same price.
Had problem with locking mech, after extended use Had replacement in hand within a week.
Great knife for cutting and simple sawing. carry it everywhere easy to get out of your pocket and open with one hand
I use this knife daily at work. Mostly cutting plastic straps and shrink film. After about 3 weeks of daily use the blade went dull. Brand new it was like a razor blade, now you have to saw at to cut. I had it sharpened and in another 3 weeks its dull again. This blade does not retain its edge very well.
i got htis for christmas and it was my favorite knive
Good knife but when i flip out the balde the star screw gets really loose and the blade has some play but really good knife.
great knife amazing price for Quality it saved my life three days ago i was on a boat and it flipped i had to cut my way out this knife rocks!
great knife fast deployment but the thumb studs are flush with the handles on both sides so using the thumb studs to deploy is usless but using the blade stud in the back sideofthe blade makes for quick deployment i can deploy this knife faster than my buddys fully auto gerber ...all and all this is a greatknife and so is all of gerber
best knife i ever owned lost 4 body screws in the process of getting replacement screws even with one body screw i use the knife lots daily
Love the knife, but the black paint on the handle bubbles and comes off, even with minimal use.
Awesome knife!! However, all of the black on the knife wears off pretty quickly... Other than that this is a very good knife!
Although I wish the handle were a little heavier and more ergonomic, this is still one of my favorite pocket knives. For a manual with a flipper the Traverse opens very fast. My only complaint is the tiny size of the flipper. This is also the sharpest
I just got this yesterday. I love the serrated edge & the liner-lock design. The lock is really sturdy. I recommend this knife to anyone looking for a basic, strong, light, heavy-duty knife.
