Ridge - Black Serrated

How much does one and half ounces feel like in your hand? Not much at all, really. Almost nothing. Yet when it takes the form of the Ridge, you're carrying a whole lotta knife. And because it's from Gerber Legendary Blades, you can have a reasonable expectation of heavyweight performance.


Notice how the edge of the non-stick stainless steel blade is as straight as can be. That means you'll get absolutely even cutting pressure regardless of which part of the blade you're using. Its a strong little knife. With all the attitude you'd ever want or need.


So go ahead. Clip this pint-sized monster into your pocket. Take it with you wherever you go. Whip it out and open it with one-handed ease whenever there's something that needs to be cut. The Ridge and Mini Ridge will stand tall for you. Every dang time.

5 The best definition of EDC Aldo Acosta - APR 5, 2015

I being using my second Ridge for more that a year know (I lost my first one in a friend's wedding), for me is the best EDC knife ever. I have the serrated version but if Gerber made the fine edge I will buy it.

5 Captain Adam - MAR 7, 2015

I have the version with the straight (not serrated) edge and it's the most useful knife I've ever owned. I've had it for over five years and still use it almost daily.... BUT... I don't care at all for the serrated edge version because you can't sharpen it.

5 Best small knife i've ever had Aaron - DEC 15, 2014

I love this knife. For the past 6 or 7 years i've had one on my keychain and use it almost daily. I've bought several for myself and even more to give as christmas gifts over the years. The serrated one is good but the fine edge was better. I'd love if they brought it back!

5 Owner B And D Automotive Repair Dennis Presnell - OCT 29, 2014

I bought a mini ridge fine edge brand new from Lowe's when I was 19, it stayed clipped in my RSO bag for 6 years. It's now my edc knife. It takes an edge like a straight razor.
Considering buying the serrated one. Absolutely can't leave home without it.

5 Minimalist Tim - JUL 7, 2014

I use it as a money clip - holds a mix of 3-4 cards and a few bills folded once or twice. Eight years of daily use.

4 Technical Advisor Ryan - APR 21, 2014

I would rather have the fine edge but I will suffer until they bring it back.

1 Ed Halligan anonymous - FEB 25, 2014

I hope Gerber is paying Ed Halligan royalties since this is a copy of his original design. the KISS.

3 the blade chris - JAN 20, 2014

would love to see this blade on an inclosed full size liner like handle

2 want it back james robinson - JAN 19, 2014

want see the full fine edge come back

5 Mr. Eric - JAN 7, 2014

This the the best knife I have found if your one of those people (like me) who can not stand things in their front pockets.

5 Your Title kevin hall - DEC 16, 2013

Best pocket knife I have ever had. Super easy to carry as well as practical. I use it nearly every day, and Like sunglasses, I can't
leave home without it.

4 Construction David - SEP 19, 2013

I am on my second Ridge; had the first one (a fine bladed model) for 5+ years until the hinge weakened, allowing the blade to stand a little apart from the frame, catching my hand while clipped to my pocket.

I bought a second one, this one a serrated; I use the Ridge as my keychain pocket clip. I've never used a knife so much as the little Gerber Ridge; always handy, always being used. Fantastic product!

5 consumer Leigh - APR 24, 2013

I in fact have had the fine edge version for YEARS and wish they would bring it it!

5 Won't leave home without it! Josh - MAR 26, 2013

I have owned a few of these knives over the past 10 years, both serrated and fine edge versions. I have had the same serrated Ridge in my pocket for the past two or three years, and I feel lost without it! I did like the fine edge version, but I feel the serated edge is useful when cutting zip ties. It holds an edge pretty well, I try to touch it up about once a month. I would like to see a left handed version, but I don't expect that any time soon. Maybe a more reasonable request would be a stainless version without the black paint, half of it gets worn off after a year of hard use. Overall this is an excelent knife!

5 The beast! outdoornorthbay - MAR 13, 2013

I have owned the fine edge version of this knife for the past 7 years, one of the best mini pocket knives I have ever used! It's strong, light and sharp and still works as well as the day I bought it.

5 Been in my pocket 8 years! James - FEB 24, 2013

Best pocket knife ever. Have had the same knife in my pocket for 8 years and still my favorite. Im going to buy more just in case Gerber discontinues it.

5 very strong! t - FEB 20, 2013

I've had one for 6 years but older fine blade version. I use it everyday to open metal buckets and cans! Great knife!

4 Your Title Tim - FEB 9, 2013

I've had one of these for a several years now, and I love it. I would have given it five star if they still offered the fine edge version.

5 Great little knife S - JAN 25, 2013

This is easily one of my absolute favourite knives I've ever owned. Incredibly well made and I carry it with me every single day.

5 Your Title Davis8488 - NOV 28, 2012

It's a great knife, perhaps the best once and a half to have in your pocket. I'd like to see a fixed blade version of this.

5 fan j - OCT 16, 2012

Fantastic little blade. Incredible quality in such a tiny package. Easy to open, holds an edge. Clip is handy, but doesn't get in the way. I'm a big fan of the half serrated blade.

Is a bit of a dust magnet, but it's very easy to clean.

5 Can't Work without It Kirk - OCT 1, 2012

Have it on my work keychain. Always there when I don't have my other knife. People take notice. Could imagine my day without it.

5 Knife Nut Brad - SEP 25, 2012

I will join in on the request to put some more straight edges out there. I have one that I have worn out with use over 10 years - best little knife I ever owned - always have it in my pocket as a money clip. A wad of bills folds around the handle while in use and makes it easier to hold. It keeps an edge. The Point of the blade is useful for getting out splinters, etc. If I could find the straight edges, I would buy a few to keep as spares. As it is, I'm thinking of finding a shop to work on this one... Don't know that I can pay a $29 knife a better complement than offering to pay $75 to get it reconditioned. I would also like to see them w/o the black paint. Thinking of sand blasting this one...

3 BangHard Alright - AUG 17, 2012

It's a nice knife. The only bad thing is that the pivot point has too much tension, so it's really difficult to open

4 Quality knife Tommy - AUG 15, 2012

It's an excellent knife. The only bad thing is that the serrations sometimes cut my thumb when i open it.

4 Quality Knife ben - AUG 10, 2012

its a really durable knife, the only down side is that the inner lock isnt covered. So it accidently opens sometimes

3 Good box cutter Donk - AUG 9, 2012

It's more if a box cutter and a back up know than a workshop knife

5 Mechanical engineer Kide dude - JUL 31, 2012

My father had this knife for over 10 years but rarely used it he gave it to me recently and it's one of the most fantastic knives ever.

5 Fisheries biologist Kristof - JUL 29, 2012

I have also recently lost my ridge straight edge that I have had in my pocket for 5+ years and am trying to find a replacement. Should definitely put the straight edge back on the market but for now, I'll just have to get by with the serrated

5 chick with a knife websitewendy - JUN 11, 2012

I have this without the serrated section .. PERFECT KNIFE ! great size .. I use it for everything !

5 Retired electrician Ron - MAY 7, 2012

Had a straight edge for 10 yrs. Its now lost and a fishing trip comming up in June. Help.

4 Aircraft Mechanic Braxton - APR 12, 2012

Love this little knife but it would be more useful to me if it came in a left handed version.

5 Ridge fanatic Ridge fanatic - MAR 7, 2012

Glad to see these revised, lost mine and having trouble finding a replacement, best knife ever. The very definition of what a pocket knife should be.

5 Retired Marine Lonnie Harrison - FEB 2, 2012

The Ridge black serated/straight edge
knife is one of the handiest little knives I have ever carried.And I have sevral hundred knives,but none fit my hand or are as easy to operate. IT'S MY MONEY CLIP or my pocket knife. The one I have right now is broken. How can I find another?

5 Hunter Fisherman Merv Bennett - JAN 8, 2012

Great little knife. Have purchased many over the years. I am also having trouble finding more ridge straight edges. They are one heck of a knife and something you people should be very proud of. Don't stop making them.

5 General Manager Jeff - JAN 1, 2012

I have to agree with Justin about the straight edge. I have carried one for years. The reason I'm on this site, is to try and find another one. Please put the straight edge back in stores.

5 Arkansawyer Justin - DEC 18, 2011

The ridge knife is one of the best knives I have ever carried. Its a shame they do not sell them in walmart anymore. PLEASE DO NOT STOP MAKING THESE RIDGE KNIVES. I stopped carrying Gerber knives when I got a mini paraframe and was dissapointed in its blade quality and performance. Kershaw leeks and scallions are my knife of choice now, if I could find the Gerber Ridge knife (Straight Edge) in stock any where, I would buy several so when I loose one, I will have another to replace it. It is a great knife, please dont stop making these knives.
