Vallotton - Fine Edge
Gerber partnered with F.A.S.T. developer Butch Vallotton to bring this namesake design to the F.A.S.T. Series. The Vallotton combines an extremely light weight, gun-checkered handle and the crisp simplicity of the F.A.S.T. Assisted Opening technology with safety and lock release, all in a slim profile that clips securely in the pocket.

I bought this knife a couple weeks ago at a gun and knife show after looking at many others. The assisted opening knife is much more helpful when I'm working than my standard Case. I wanted a knife that was quality, but wouldn't hurt too much if lost in the river or among the rocks, so performance at a reasonable price was important.
This great knife fits the bill! Mine is a single fine-edge blade. Opens quickly, the tactile grip prevents slipping, even when my hands are wet. I've tried many knives that I found difficult to open and close with one hand, or just to close without getting a finger in the way of the blade. My husband, a huge Kershaw fan, has to admit that it's great, and easy to get accustomed to.
Even though it's lightweight, the knife is sturdy and holding up to every task I've asked of it thus far. With its slim design, I can carry it anywhere without it showing in my pocket--a plus when you're a lady.
I carry this knife everywhere, I use it camping, I carry it to church, everywhere. I love it.
It isnt bad in my opinion but you should know about it. The pocket hook is made for a left pocket carry, no i right pocket carry. personal preference. also, it has opened in my pocket twice, but I run quite often when im carrying so keep that in mid. I love the knife, could hold an edge better though...
Love this knife, have in plain blade. Carry everyday except when I travel on planes
