Technical and tactical, the medium sized Answer is a folder with quick opening F.A.S.T. technology. Aluminum handles keep it lightweight and the textured inlays give it extra grip. Two blade options for tactical choices: Tanto shape for thrusting and drop point for general use.
- Blade Length: 3.30"

- F.A.S.T. TECHNOLOGY
- Lightweight Aluminum Handles
I like the aluminum handles and the feel of the knife. I don't like that this size only comes with a tanto blade. The clip point blade in this size has been discontinued and is now only offered in the small size. If you like tanto type blades the knife is okay.
The action is nice but the blade material is not it rust to easily and sadley thats not covered under the warranty so i still got a rusted blade on mine
i have had the knife for two years and i sheared two screws which allowed the the handles on each side to swing independently and i sent it in to gerber and they sent me a brand new knife and i have had n o more problems
The screws on the belt clip are weak and constantly need to be tightened... until you lose it. It is difficult to use the safety and flip open the blade if you are left-handed.
I am EXTREMELY disappointed with this knife. After having it for only about a week it basically fell apart on me. The thumb studs literally fell off, as did the belt clip, and shortly thereafter the liner itself started coming apart. The LINER! You know, the part that holds the knife together. I have a LMF and I'm pretty happy with it, but it's VERY unlikely I'll ever buy another Gerber folder again. I didn't even get to use the knife (all I did was practice opening & closing the kife) and it fell apart? I'd hate to see what would happen if I were actually in a situation where I needed to depend on it.
It's an o.k. blade.
Rather disappointed on it's construction though. The blade dulls fast, and the serrated edge doesn't cut line all to well.
Knife was given to me as a gift.
But frankly, I'd just stick to my SOG Flash II.
Crap blade. The FAST folder gizmo is pretty slick, but the blade chipped and the tanto tip broke. It's all fine by me, the steel wouldn't hold an edge, anyways. It LOOKS badass. Very impressive and durable looking, but if your looking for a utility blade, steer clear.
