Armor Tanto - Serrated
Take the Armor in hand and you'll discover just how ergonomic a tactical knife can be. We took considerable care in shaping the Micarta handle to fit the human hand, right down to the thumb ridges. Dual thumbstuds and a finger flipper facilitate easy one-hand opening. The all-business tanto blade is engineered from high-carbon stainless steel coated black for a low visibility signature.

no matter which way you hold it, edge out of course, it feels very comfortable and natural even with the belt clip installed. The quillon is more than sufficient, and hides the finger flipper nicely when the blade is out. Opens as easy as an assisted blade, very easy one handed use, great for camping.
I have had the Armor Serrated Tanto for nearly a year now and have had no problems with it. It takes and holds a razor edge. It conforms to my hand comfortably and opens with ease. I keep it clean with just a touch of light oil. I will never buy a knife from another manufacturer.
I've owned this knife a while and have always been happy with its performance. Even after I lost it outside for over a week it is still solid (no movement when blade is out and locked) and after some cleaning and use there's no longer any rust on it; the blade is still fairly sharp too.
Only concern is that the serrations have been ground down a bit through use, they still serve their purpose quite well however so this is a minor concern.
If you want a solid knife, with great performance, and durability that'll last you a long time this is the one to pick up.
I've taken mine all around the world from jungles in the Pacific to the desert in the middle east and I have yet to find a better knife. It's worked perfectly in every climb and place I've taken it. The best of Gerber in my opinion.
What anamazing knife.
This is a really cool practical knife the action is really smooth and the safty is hidden in the handle out of the way. The handle could have a little texture though.
This is a great knife. It was plenty sharp out of the box and in my opinion a perfect weight.The only knocks on it I have are since it is Micarta the handle is slick but not so much so that I cant keep it under control and whil using the thumbstud the end of the handle can get in the way from time to time,however,using the finger flipper eliminates this.Also its kinda stiff but that is expected since it is brand new.Have not used it enough to comment on how well it keeps and can take an edge that is for a later post I guess.
LOVE THIS KNIFE! Ready does fit the hand perfectly. I have two of these, one serrated and one fine, prefer the fine edge. Knife has never let me down.
