Gator - 154CM, Drop Point, Fine Edge
Ever notice how alligators are completely indifferent to the weather? Well these prized knives are kinda the same, because they perform to their fullest whether the conditions are wet or dry. If there's a job to be done, our Gator Folders are more than up to it. But that's not just Gerber talking. Heck, when we debuted the Gator Folders back in 1991, the insightful attendees at Blade Show named our reptilian creation as the "Most Innovative Knife of the Year." And our competitors did the voting...
Acclaimed those fourteen years ago and as popular as ever today, the Gator Folder employs advanced thermoplastics with an alligator skin texture to deliver a stunningly reliable, ultimately comfortable grip. Who could have guessed that the feel of reptile scales would be so satisfying?

This Gator 154cm is the sharpest and nicest knife in my bag!
Made in USA also.
It is handy knife that I carry for basic utility purposes. Cutting rope, opening boxes and or whatever. But what I love about this knife is that there is enough weight to this blade that with a little practice you can figure out the right grip you can get the blade out with a snap of the wrist. It won't work unless you have the snap and grip just right so you don't have to worry about it opening in your pocket. Other than that, don't pay $56 for it, cheaper on amazon. Decent knife.
Great design, great feel, but the edge seems to dull quickly. That's ok if you have a sharpener handy, because it takes an edge easily, too. Just don't forget your sharpener.
