Made with a slim, lightweight handle and a blade that opens with one hand, it’s an ideal choice for your everyday carry knife.
•Fell apart in your hand? It has a lifetime warranty...use it!!!
•Lock got stuck? I bet you just hyper flexed it...easy fix.
Now my review: G10 grip is awesome the lock has NO issues, it's very low profile, great tactical knife if you NEED to use it for defense. Gerber I wish I had the DING-DONG when I was breaching...I've heard great things about it.
I was given the RemixTactical knife as a birthday present from my son. After using it for less then one month, the knife came apart in my hand while I was using it. Due to the knife design you can put it back together. It needs a special wrench to tighten the nuts around the blade. There was no indication that the knife was going to come apart unit it happened. Be careful it this happens to you, you could be seriously injured
I purchased this knife to replace an earlier model Remix I gave to my father in law. This was/is the newest version and so far I enjoy owning it.
Today It is my go to knife for general purpose. The knife feels well constructed with good weight. I take it camping for cutting string, opening boxes, cutting tape, etc and its great to have during Christmas for opening the kiddos presents.
Downside, it can be hard to open but over time I have adapted to it and feel the knife was built well enough that its not giving out or loosening up which makes that downside an upside. I haven't needed to sharpen it yet and the Hole in the handle allows for hooking with a clip when camping and just something to spin when I am holding it or standing around the campfire.
I had this knife for 2 years, handles grate after you brake it in, I was very fund of it although I don't love the serrated blades, the finger hole is very practical... use it for minor tasks and had worked OK...
Was vey surprised to see how yesterday I applied a good amount of force to cut al lamb spine when the look mechanism broke and the blade almost folded the other way around...
So not for hard work for my eyes...
This knife is skinny and I carry it everywhere I go its always sharp and dependable. I lost mine today and I'm going to get another one tomorrow. I use this knife for everything under the sun. I highly recommend this knife. You''ll get your moneys worth out of it and more.

this is a amazing knife great choice will do great for gutting deer
I work in construction. I got tired of using abusing my nice Benchmade and purchased this knife for field use.
At this price, I do not feel bad about abusing it in the field. It is not extremely heavy duty, but it works as an all purpose utility knife. Mostly for cutting packaging, rope, cords, drywall, punching holes...
When new, it was difficult or impossible to open the blade one-handed. The design has a lot of friction in it, but that is the trade off for the finger hole. Once lubricated it worked much more smoothly. Over time I have become very accustomed to holding it and flipping the blade out one-handed is no problem. Sometimes it takes two shakes.
The finger hole gives me MUCH greater control of the knife and confidence when cutting. I am careful to apply force only against the sharp edge of the blade as the lock mechanism is not heavy duty.
The large thumb tab on the blade also improves control.
The knife is thin and lightweight overwall, it fits in my pockets without feeling bulky or bothering me.
A 3-star knife in quality, increased to 4-stars because of it's overall value and functionality.
Purchased one about 3 years ago and eventually lost it during a move; it felt like I lost an old friend. Finally purchased a new one a few days ago. This is an extremely sturdy and we'll built knife. Absolutely zero blade play and a good comfortable weight that let's you know you're handling a high quality Gerber product. I've read countless complaints regarding the stiffness. This is to be expected when it comes out of the packaging. I recommend a few drops of lubricant oil (I use Breakfree CLP which doubles as a cleaning agent) every so often. You need to also open and close the blade whenever you can to get the lubricant working. After a period of time it will become smooth as silk. Open it part way and you will eventually be able to open the rest with one thumb and a flick of the wrist. Can't recommend this knife enough.
Its a good knife.i like the shape.its a little hard to open 1handed but its kool.my son is in the US NAVY AND I GAVE HIM THIS KNIFE AS A GIFT HE LOVES IT. I BROUGHT ME. THE SAME KNIFE FOR MY SELF...I LOVE IT..
Love this blade. Awesome design. The only thing I would like to see is a spring assist "trigger" inside the hole closest to the blade. Fast one hand draw for tight situations. Other than that this is the third blade i have owned that has been made by Gerber all three have been stellar.
I work around the corner from Gerber (Portland, Oregon). I always want them to do well.
I've owned this knife for a year and I've finally decided to put in the drawer. This is a tactical knife and it's almost impossible to open one handed...quickly. Your fingers need to placed in a very specific location on the body. Also, the initial movement of the blade when opening is very stiff.
I need a knife that opens quickly, without thought...this is not that knife.
I came to Gerber's website hoping to see that they might have made improvements to the above issues. If they have, it's not noted in the description.
Unfortunately, I'll be buying a different self defense knife.
Also, some constructive criticism...more photos and some video showing all the pertinent aspects of Gerber knives. A single static photo just doesn't provide the info necessary for a buying decision.
Very nice knife. Only issue is after a couple of years I broke the belt clip. Please offer replacement belt clips.
used it pretty roughly even prying, but when i pried i only used the blade to produce force not the whole knife. the most solid pivot i ever used. it was a little slow to open so i put an emerson wave on it with j b weld but then that broke off, and i dropped it after years of hard use and the pivot separated and one piece got lost. I normally don't like tantos for work but this one is a actually a good and useful shape for a variety of tasks
i have owned this knife for over a year its a great knife but the belt clip got caught on something and bent so i had to find the worlds smallest torx bit to remove it but other than the belt clip i have had no issues with this knife. i have carried and owned various gerber knives over the past 15 years and this is on of the better ones gerber is the only brand knife i feel is worth the money and i wont buy any other brand
This is by far one of the best knives I have owned and probably going to buy a second one
i was at work a the belt clip caught on something and snapped the belt clip right off and Gerber warranty has not done anything to help me
I too love this knife, but broke the belt clip. Can't buy a replacement clip, and I don't like the thought of buying another knife when this one is just fine..
I bought this knife a while ago... It's nice looking and looks tough but the second day of having it I drop it and it fell apart I put it back together but every time it drops it falls apart! Not worth the money I think very disappointed with it knowing the brand name
I had it for about 3 weeks. I forgot what I was doing (I think i was getting out of my truck), and it snapped off. I just wish I could get a replacement belt clip. I own 2 of gerber knives and I love them.
i use it for almost every thing it just shocks me how good it does one thing that does make me give it only 4 stars is that it needs lobed up to open easily.
Apparently some of these knives come from the manufacturer with the blade tension set very high, while others are set reasonably low. This explains the wide variation of responses about whether it is easy to open one-handed. If the opening mechanism is too stiff, you need to reduce the tension by counter-rotating the two sides of the big ring. Note that each side has five small holes. C-clip pliers can be used in two of these hole on each side to start counter-rotation if it is too stiff to start using fingers only. Otherwise, you may be able to initiate loosening this adjustment by spinning the ring as a unit inside the handle. After a few turns, it may be loose enough to counter-rotate the two sides. Apply enough counter-rotation to make it easy to open one-handed, but be careful not to over-loosen as this will allow side-to-side play in the blade when locked into position. Also note that the smoothness of operation is reduced as the mechanism is loosened. I like everything about his knife, except this mechanism, but I can see that it is necessary in order to support the ring design element.
Really practical design. It could be used from EDC to hiking/climbing since it can be easily attached to a carabiner. I say could because the item I received cannot be opened and/or closed one handed thus rendering the folder classification as tactical outright misleading. The mild striations of the blade look quite attractive but they have not been ground down on the area of the circular pivot hence, instead of a smooth blade opening one gets a sequential motion and feel which indicates that the blade is grinding against the pivot white plastic washer. Even if the white washer is made of Teflon, obviously it will not last long while grinding against the metal blade. The spot where the liner lock is bent inward to provide the necessary tension to lock the blade in place is too close to the engagement area rendering it too stiff to be operated one handed in order to close the folder. Again, this characteristic nullifies the folder tactical classification. I am still waiting for Gerber response e-Mail with regard to my inquiry for the price of two keys necessary for adjusting the folder open/close tension. However, given the type of Teflon washer the folder is provided with I’m not sure whether it’s worth trying to adjust the tension. To top it all off, removing the blade tip plastic protector revealed that the very tip of the tanto blade is slightly rounded denoting a manufacturing defect indicating that somebody tried to re-sharpen it before packaging. The only way to purchase this folder is in person and only after you have tested it out before paying for it. I am really surprised that such a reputable company as Gerber Legendary Blades accepts such poorly manufactured items with such poor quality control for sale under its name. Label states Made in China. Considering the $32 purchase plus shipping price I paid for the folder I am not sure whether it is worth taking advantage of the Gerber otherwise excellent lifetime warranty or just keep it as is and use it as a utility knife. I will keep you posted.
i use mine as a pocket knife and its very useful i bring it to the office everyday ...... Chingona
i tried to post a review about this at an earlier date, but it would seem that this site only posts positive reviews about their products. well this needs to be seen too. just for those of us that dont want to pay for a knife that will fall apart.. i doubt this will be posted too. BUT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD AND FINGERS! SOMEONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THIS!
This is about the 3rd Gerber knife I've owned. I keep a knife on me at all times and have trusted this brand for years.. I read a lot of reviews on this specific knife, from this site and others. For the most part, they were all positive. Although I do love the design and the tanto blade, and the finger whole proved well for leverage and twirling around your finger when your bored. But after about 3 weeks of owning it, in an attempt to cut something, the locking mechanism slipped and cut my index finger to the bone. After further inspection, with the slightest bump or hit to the back of the blade, the lock will slip and the blade will fold in. Not very good for anything (fingers) that may be in the way. Needless to say, this "show" knife will be put into my case for display only. it was a pretty big disappointment for a fond gerber consumer.
good knife over all
hard to open with one hand
This knife is a comfortable fit to the hand, especially with the index hole. Extra grip & comfort. Only complaint is that *somehow*, on the heel of the knife (bottom), the metal has shattered. This occurred without even using it, or even dropping it/treating it roughly.
I tested one at the store to see if it was to my liking before purchase. Because well, why not? Store model was very smooth operating and very solid when open. Out of the package this knife is very stiff to open but just a little work moving around and it loosens up nicely! This is a great purchase! Thank you Gerber for another fine knife for my every day use!
My wife bought me this knife for a wedding gift I absolutely love it. It is very sturdy and sharp and feels like it is a part of my hand . Easy to open with one hand after a couple weeks of daily use. There is no play in the blade when open at all. I was devastated when I lost it. So I am defiantly buying this knife again . Best damn knife for the money when you are going to be using it every day
great knife,I loved it so much when I lost one I bought another, very strong and sturdy knife. The handle is good and even for a guy like me with big hands the hole fits my finger. A little pricey but a good buy.
I love this little utility knife. The design is great, I love the handle and the ring! This knife just feels like it's supposed to be in your hand. My only complaint, you're not opening this thing with one hand. It's not going to happen. Other then that, I love this knife.
I have owned 3 of these do to loosing them but keep come back for another each time. I've had kersaw's Smith and Weston and other tactical knives this is by far my favorite
Really good knife,but hard to open whith one hand!
Solid kit, great price... what more could you ask for. My new EDC blade.
I got this knife, not only because it looks cool as hell, but I was looking for a lighter and thinner EDC knife. I love this thing...
First the only problem: If you use a kinetic wrist flinging motion it is possible to over travel the locking mechanism. If they could modify the catch feature on the blade, this wouldn't be a problem.
Second, this knife is nearly prefect for my needs. I'm a climber so the carabiner loop was the selling point. The so called "climbing knifes" sacrifice so much for only a few grams, such they are useless. I like the strong closed detent, I don't want it opening on me while leading.
For the value, this is a stunner. If it was 100$ I would have still bought two.
It looks very bad ass and has a good grip and is nice to handle. It is very, very sharp and you can cut yourself without realizing, so be careful. The down side is the difficult opening with one hand but can be done after training your hand to flip it open after thumb pushing.
This is nice quiality knife for the price. I really like the tanto blade with the serrated edge as well as the round finger hole to really get a firm grip on the knife. The only thing I'm disappointed in is that under the features it's labeled as "One Hand Opening," which is false. It takes two hands to open this blade. The thumblift isn't placed well, making this nearly impossible.
2 years ago I purchased this blade for my EDC [Every Day Carry] & self-defense. Now fast forward too the present and its time to Cowboy up for another. And for this I THANK YOU!
*To Gerber : When will we see another Gerber Remix?"
Going with me in all HRA.....
Great knife, very well designed, except you can't open it with one hand unless you're freakishly strong. I wouldn't call this knife a tactical for that reason. If you're not in a hurry, it works just fine
When I first got it, it was a little stiff to open, but with a little gun oil it opens very easily. Durable blade and I use it everyday.
Rusts easily. Not a good idea to take near salt water
this knife looks good, just order it... cant wait to get it
P.S it cheaper on Amazon
I can't get this knife to keep its edge.
I've had several of these in the remix and the remix tactical, I absolutely love the fit and feel of this knife. I love the composite Grips nice feel and never slip even when greasy. @Darko Croatia Either you unfortunately received a defective one or you have the hand strength of an infant because this knife works flawlessly as a one hand opener. It will not jolt flip open like a heavy blade with a loose pivot but if gripped with the hand and rotated open with your thumb it opens smoothly and easily.
I love this knife but it needs a stronger belt clip
the knife is very difficlut to open with one hand and the belt clip snapped on the second day of use . the blade finish is nice but when closed you can see the back of the circle part of the blade was poorly made , its not even finished properly . not impressed with the price tag associated with this knife , should be in the low 20's.
super easy to open with one hand by far one of my top knifes
The best mass market EDC/Emergency Self-Defense folder on the market for the price. Solid construction, excellent ergonomics and design for a reasonable MSRP. I collect knives from ZT, Benchmade, Microtech, Kershaw Spyderco, A to Z and everything in between. I know quality when I see/use it, and this little blade has earned its place in my collection and more recently clipped to my pocket. Good job Gerber, damn good knife.
I can write anything here cause you don't post it anyway !
Just got mine and I Love it. It is a little difficult to open but nothing some oil won't fix. I carry it with me every day.
Great knife, after working the gears it opens smoothly. Works Great as a pry bar when needed. Great steel. Wonderfully comfortable grip. Works great.
Easy opening after few days.
I have owned this knife for about a year now, and it is a wonderful knife! Buy it
I've got 2 pcs of this. One is still sealed. The one that I unsealed it is hard to open with one hand. After several days of testing and lubricating oil seems to be open a little easier, or maybe I'm used to the movement.
Otherwise it is a good knife, you can play with him spinning it on your finger. After a day of experiments I have achieved the performance of open it, spin it on my finger, lock back, all this with one hand. The thing is to get used to it.
It's kinf od impossible to open with one hand... Seems that some of the knives are easier to open than others. In the video reviews look like it's easy to open, but mine doesn't as well. I like it anyway.
To answer a few questions and concerns. The blade was very stiff to open and quite difficult to open with one hand immediately after purchase but lots of opening and closing loosens it up and now its very easy and fast to deploy the liner lock is very solid with absolutely no play. The clip is removable but has only one position (being a tip up for a right hand pocket )
Always clipped to my pants or shorts... Very dependable
Over-priced for what's it worth
it is one of the better knives I have owned. It just feels solid. I will say it was a little stiff to open, but that is what gun oil for.
I can open it with one hand, and so can anybody else, but this is a little tricky
I BOUGHT ONE OF THESE AND IT SEAMS THAT THERE WAS FACTORY MISTAKE. THEY GRINDED OF THE EDGE (ROUND PART OF THE BLADE) SO THAT THE BRAKE COULD FIT IN THE BACK SIDE. VERY DISSAPOINTED. HOPING TO GET A REPLACEMENT WITH NO UGLY ERROR AS THIS ONE. I HAVE A PHOTO BUT DON'T KNOW TO WHOM TO SEND IT.
I like the knife alot. It is great and i take it every where i go. The knife feels great in your hand, in bout a traditional and reverse grip. They did there homework with this knife. However, they got a C with the pocket clip. I never had a problem with it after weeks of carrying it on my waist until recently when it got bent. It is absolutely impossible to bend it back in to place and i am now waiting for my replacement. All in all good knife though.
Love this knife. I never leave home with out it
I have wanted a Remix ever since I saw the first one several years ago. When I bought it last summer I had high expectations of it since it's a tactical knife and I have to say that almost all of my expectations have been met. Its got a great look and an awesome feel. I agree that it's rather difficult to open one handed but overall a great knife.
Best Knives EVERRRRR
This knife took a week or so to get accustom to and break-in. I now have no problems opening it with one hand.
It arrived very Sharp but would suggest highly that Gerber offer a 4 inch Blade model of this knife.
Dandy knife, been my go to knife for a year or more, nice weight, easy to open and close one handed, and great blade.
I used it to help me finish killing my wild hog and even used it to skin the whole animal, the knife is very sharp and good for almost any task, I fully recommend it.
My girlfriend open it with one hand... :D
Very good knife, my recommendation.
Awsome realy great knife easy handle and carry ..
it is easy to open with one hand if u know how to open it! this is an amazing knife and it is part of my daily carry.
This knife is one of the best tactical knives And the ring is innovation and if u know how to open it right the thumb lift is as quick as a switch blade. The grip is amzing and so is the sharp Tonto point serrated edge.
I bought it today and I can say thats not impossible to open with one hand, you must be very weak to make this impossible. Belt clip is removable, knife is very good.
Good blade, steel and cutting features, good ergonomy, bur really it is impossible to open it with one hand. Can you please provide some instructions how to do that.
Great knife, easy to open one handed, easy to pocket and remove. It's perfect!
Beautiful knife, blade is sharp as heck, nice design. Fingerhold is nice
Having carried it every day for almost a month now, i love the thing. at first, if i didnt open slowly and just racked it open, the liner-lock would jam and be impossible to close, but after a while it wore down whatever was slowing it and it is the perfect knife more my EDC. the ergonomics are great for both standard and reverse grips. smooth operation and great looks.overall great knife. All it needs is a spring assisted opening and we'd have a five star blade.
stiff and precise...just a slightly heavier
impossible to open with one hand!
But is the belt clip removable or repositionable?
Pro: -Fit & finish is very good.
-Lock-up is tight, no lateral or up & down movement in the blade when deployed.
-Good traction on the handle.
-Good sharp edge out of box.
- Sits deep in pocket.
Cons: Good luck trying to deploy quickly. The blade is very tight to open. I oiled it up, but still very slow to open. Would make a good work knife, but not for any kind of tactical / self defense use.
I give it 2 stars because it is marketed as a tactical knife, but it is just very stiff & too slow to deploy. If it was marketed as a work knife I would give it 3 stars. I just can't get around the speed (lack of) of blade deployment. I think that there are better options for the price.
just picked it up yesterday. great knife already used it
Love the design. Wish to have thumb stud for Remix as well. I was hoping at least 9Cr13CoMoV instead. Willing to pay more for sure.
Love it! I take it everywhere I go.
ordered it cant wait!!!
Great knife but a half inch longer version is better.
i want one and am going to buy one soon but some people who own it say its bad because the finish is ruff and makes it move slow but i looked at one at meijers and it looked ok
p.s. WHO CARES ITS A GOOD KNIFE
This blade is awesome. The only down side I have to this blade is the that the belt clip is on wrong, I have had it open in my pocket as I was pulling it out. If the clip could be moved or made ambidextrous this would be a 5 star knife.
I have had this knife for a year and it is the best one I have. The finger hole makes it great for carving thing into wood .
Excellent to handle. One hand open. Love the feel. Great knife
This is indeed a tactical knife, great for every day carry awesome build and well balanced.
The finger grip hole makes it ideal for self defense! awesome knife
Good knife I've had it for I think two years now I like it a lot. It's very solid I have no complaints about it.
i bought this knife today its an great knife its gunna be my every day carry
Great knife. Never had to sharpen. Will buy again. I still would have the knife if it wasn't stolen with my tools
This Knife Is the best single bladed knife I have if any people are considering to get any other don't. You should get this knife!!!!!!!
Please, Please, Please. Make this knife bigger!!! This is a great design, built solid, and the finger slot is the best for control. Increase the length by an inch and keep it under $40. Then don't look back because you won't keep it in stock...
I agree with what most have said... Sound construction with an outstanding grip and great blade. Dont be concerned, the finger slot greatly increases control.
You should get this knife. Excellent value.
Good G-10 handles = great grip
Thumblift allows for improved thumb stabilization when knife is open, also makes it easy to open as well.
Large lanyard hole makes paracord or other hefty cords attachable with ease.
Excellent factory sharpened blade which has yet to need sharpening from my usage of it.
Pocket clip works smooth.
Great buy worth the money.
My brother has had this knofe since christmas he only complains about the opening time but he has found new pressure points to open it and yes it dose have a belt clip
DOES THIS HAVE A BELT CLIP ??
what the hell is this thing i want one
Gerber is my hands down choice for many years, and I was amazed at all the Tactical positions this blade can be held. And for this I Thank you!
I love it !
perfect for any mountain adventure...
It is a great knife, I am in law enforcement and love how light the knife is and how the pocket clip is on the other side so it opens on it own when you draw it out of your pocket. The ring make it almost impossible for the kinfe to slip out of your hand or for it to be taken away from you. Great job..
I've owned many Gerber knives over the years, dating back to when Gerber was an American owned company and all their knives were made in the USA. Although, after Fiskars bought them their blade quality and construction went down marginally. That being said , the prices also went down making them a significant bargain. I love my Tanto remix, all the way down to my original old school Gator, which is American made. All in all I must say that despite being made in China now, they still make a very good knife for the price, and I feel like i don't have to baby my blades because i don't want to garbage a 150$+ blade.
Looks and usefulness, great job Gerber. Keep them coming your guys design team(s) is(are) realistic and have outdoors knowledge, thank you!
I have used this knife for a while now, and not once has it let me down. I've used it for cutting boxes, cutting paper, and I even used to to cut my nails. It's razor-sharp right out of the box, sturdy, and reliable. Once you put a dab of wd-40 on the pivot, it's perfect.
Great knife. Couldnt be happier!! SURVIVAL AT ITS FINEST
Great knife to use when climbing outdoors. It's lightweight and you can open it with one hand (takes some practise). Just put a carabiner through the hole and attach it on your harness, and you're all set...
I have not purchased nor handled this knife, although I have many other Gerber blades and they are great users. It looks like a great knife and going off of past experiences with Gerber I can say it's probably worth every penny. My only suggestion would be to offer a plain edge model, I own/collect many knives from various manufacturers and like to keep them hair whittling sharp; if you offered this in plain edge as opposed to combo edge I would not only buy one, I'd probably buy 3 for myself and a few for friends because they're so affordable and seem to be a great value.
This knife is sturdy with a grippy handle. It is almost too tight to open with one flip, but that is a good thing. It looks sexy when it's open and it will do what it is designed for. Feels like quality.
Great blade, I would get it. DON'T SPIN THE METAL RING AROUND THE FINGER HOLE IT WILL CAUSE BLADE-PLAY!
Great design, easy to handle, sturdy, lightweight. Its has great handling. I really like the remix design.
GREAT FOR EVERYDAY CARRY. I LIKE THE 2-WAY BRUSHED STEEL LOOK ON THE BLADE. I LIKE HOW THE G-10 HANDLE WAS CUT SO THAT IT KIND OF LOOKS LIKE CARBON FIBER WITH THE WAY IT REFLECTS LIGHT. MY ONE GREATEST CONCERN HOWEVER IS THAT ON THE BOX, IT SAYS MADE IN CHINA. UP TO THAT POINT I THOUGHT THAT ALL GERBER KNIVES WERE BUILT IN PORTLAND...
i like that knife and i want hem to my collection. is a nice and utility knife.
keep that line gerber !!!
Awesome Looking Knife.
I've had a fair share of knives, and as of late, more and more Gerber knives. This was the latest in my collection. The Tanto blade and G10 were the main selling points. The knive is great. Lightweight. Easy to open. Easy to close. The pocket clip on the opposite end took a little getting used to, but has been easily adapted to. I think the only thing I miss from my previous models is a safety. I do realize it's a slim handle, so there probably wasn't room for it. Just would have put this knife into the "If you don't buy this knife you're mentally deficient" category. Overall, I love it and will continue to only buy Gerber if this is where their future is headed.
A badass looking blade. Love the ring in the middle, good for solid grip. not sure about the G10 though. stick to my pocket.
