In Denmark they say: “A knife-less man is a lifeless man.” Except, you know, in Danish. In any language, the message is clear: A man without a knife is not just unprepared—he’s not fully himself. The Gerber Cohort can help, thanks to a minimalist design that keeps it ultra light and out of sight when carried, but fully capable when necessity rears its head.


Sometimes, it’s what’s left out that counts. Stripped of all unnecessary features that might weigh it down, the Cohort features a sleek, anodized aluminum handle, gram-shaving open frame design, and dual thumb stubs for quick, secure one-handed deployment. Slim-bodied, with a distinctive open frame design, this clip folder is an ideal daily carry knife that’s solid in the hand.


Invisible when you don’t need them, indispensible when you do, the Cohort’s details stand out for their minimalism. The 3-inch fine edge drop point blade cuts, pries and performs on command, while the Liner Lock mechanism holds the blade firmly in place, requiring just a simple and efficient one-handed engagement to release. At 2.6 ounces, it’s featherlight in both your pocket and in use, but it works like a middleweight when needed.


A removable pocket clip lets you carry the Cohort easily in your pocket, or secure it to a bag for easy access. A lanyard hole means you can attach the cordage of your choice for added security and easy location.

Got this knife on sale during a Black Friday 2014 deal at Home Depot for like $10. It has been a great knife. I carry it everywhere I go. It holds an edge and is lightweight. What more could you ask for?


This is a really good knife and it lasts for quite some time, i dont think i need the warranty even though i cant get it anymore because i forgot the information. The only downside is that its not sharpened enough, though I can sharpen it and it will be fine. Also the handle on the knife has a comfortable grip without using cheap materials like plastic or rubber

Picked this up on sale for probably $18 at the Home Depot I work at, and never have I been more satisfied with an impulse knife purchase. Very basic knife, but that's what works for it. Incredible smoothness on the opening too... once you break it in a bit it should flip open nearly as easily as an assisted blade.

Picked one up on sale at a local hardware store, and couldn't be happier with it. I wouldn't say it's the end-all be-all knife, but for what I use a pocket knife for it works fantastic. It required some sharpening out of the box, but it has held up well and feels great in the hand. For the price I paid I'd definitely grab another one, but probably not at $30.

Wow just got the knife..very well made product. Surgical precision cutting and stable enough platform to gut with.

I've had mine for over a year and it handles well. Design wise i'm still in love with it, just beautiful. The handle material is fragile to any hard knocks leaving it weirdly dented. The blade it self is no surprise, a low quality metal. Nevertheless the blade can take a beating but you will need to constantly sharpen it. It's a 25$ pk that's worth every cent.
To make the opening smoother just loosen the screw very slightly

just picked it up today. i wanted something cheap and use as a beater so if it breaks or lose it i can get another one. Works fine and use it just for edc since i got sick of carrying multi tools and my bigger blades and this was i good size.

Great for any activity!

Bought this knife a while back and it's been great! Holds well in the hand and has a great blade. Hard to pass up for such a great price!

4 Gerber Cohort Review Kevin - NOV 24, 2013

I am an Eagle Scout and have tested the Gerber Cohort knife. I usually go through a lot of knives, yet this knife stays with me. I have had the knife for a few days now and use it a lot. The Gerber Cohort is a knife that you're able to carry in your pocket, with easy access, but can still use it like a large blade. I have an off-brand (Dakota) 4" blade which I have also used; this knife seems to be just too bulky in my pocket. I also own a small, 3 year old Gerber locking blade (both closed and open). This knife has the F.A.S.T. technology yet is too small for doing a real knife's work. I believe that the Corhort knife by Gerber is create for day-to-day projects, small carvings, and can stand the normal wear and tear that a knife normally goes through, at least for a Boy Scout. Lastly, The open concept of the knife is not only great to make for a light weight knife, but also allows for things like sand to fall through it and not get stuck. (I had this happen with my smaller, closed concept Gerber, and it has never worked the same.)
