FAST Draw Tanto

An everyday tactical knife needs to offer more than just a stealth black finish and menacing blade. It needs to withstand daily abuse and, should you find yourself in the midst of the unexpected, be versatile enough to rise to the call of duty. The F.A.S.T. Draw Assisted Opening Knife meets these demands.


Nothing defines the personality of a folding knife like a good, smooth blade action, and Gerber’s Assisted Opening 2.0 mechanism delivers. Its silky-smooth action allows true one-handed blade engagement. Simply lever the thumb stud to open the blade quickly and positively. The reliable plunge lock keeps the blade fixed when open and makes for safe, easy closure without putting your fingers in the path of the folding blade.


An everyday carry knife needs to rise to the demands of the day, and the tanto-style blade is ready to puncture, cut and perform as required. Partial serration adds utility for working through stubborn materials like knots or metal, where sawing action is helpful. The blade’s matte black titanium nitride coating reduces reflectivity in critical situations.

Great price for an extremely useful, and well-made knife. Holds an edge for a decent amount of time, as well as well balanced.

I've bought many knives benchmade,sog ect. I'm comparing this knife to these other knives that cost $100 and up. The lock up is tight with no up and down play and very little Side to side play . Blade came razor sharp like most gerber knifes . The assisted opening is smooth and also quiet which I like . Overall for the price it is a great knife for SD and everyday use , I would recomend this knife to anyone unless your a knife snob and have to have a Chris Reeves or collectors type knife . I love it . Thank you Gerber !

I was looking for a good EDC knife with single hand operation and a positive lock.
This offers everything I was looking for and more.

Great looking knife with a great price. It opens smoothly and fast. Would give it a five start except the pocket clip easily bends.
