4 Blade -opening tension adjustment! Dave - JAN 28, 2015

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.

1 Your Title Steve - JAN 12, 2015

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

5 good over all icetae45apc - DEC 29, 2014

good knife over all

hard to open with one hand

4 Venturer Spencer - DEC 13, 2014

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.

5 Great Knife! Eric De. - DEC 1, 2014

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!

4 Waterman Ryan Fitz - SEP 2, 2014

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.

5 Hey There Shay Laren - SEP 1, 2014


5 excellent bud Parizek - AUG 17, 2014

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

5 Good! Eric - AUG 11, 2014

Really good knife,but hard to open whith one hand!

5 Tacti-Ninja Ballsey McGurk - AUG 8, 2014

Solid kit, great price... what more could you ask for. My new EDC blade.

5 LP GRIMM - JUN 29, 2014

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?"

5 PMC Miki -Croatia - JUN 24, 2014

Great knife!!!
Going with me in all HRA.....

3 Field Engineer Quang Hong - JUN 21, 2014

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

5 IMO Ellery Martilla - APR 8, 2014

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.

5 No title No Name - APR 6, 2014

I can write anything here cause you don't post it anyway !

5 Solid Nate - APR 2, 2014

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.

5 Outdoorsman Bassy - FEB 27, 2014

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 )

5 Works Great Nathan Rokusek - FEB 17, 2014

Always clipped to my pants or shorts... Very dependable

3 nice knife lousy clip Consumer - JAN 26, 2014

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.

5 Great knife Ken - JAN 24, 2014

Love this knife. I never leave home with out it

4 Canadian teenager Jesse Simpson - JAN 23, 2014

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.

5 Your Title mitrovic3 - JAN 20, 2014

Best Knives EVERRRRR

4 4 inch Blade Model Please Cliff Aiea, HI - JAN 16, 2014

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.

5 Awesome Devin - JAN 15, 2014

Dandy knife, been my go to knife for a year or more, nice weight, easy to open and close one handed, and great blade.

5 Hunting Austin Billings - JAN 13, 2014

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.

5 One Hand! Toni - JAN 13, 2014

My girlfriend open it with one hand... :D
Very good knife, my recommendation.

5 tactical remix Flash - JAN 12, 2014

Awsome realy great knife easy handle and carry ..

5 best tactical knife ever jack - JAN 6, 2014

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.

5 amazing! jack - JAN 3, 2014

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.

5 SLOVAKIA Matúš - DEC 31, 2013

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.

4 Mr. _dr_ - DEC 30, 2013

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.

5 Love it Perfect for daily use - DEC 28, 2013

Great knife, easy to open one handed, easy to pocket and remove. It's perfect!

5 Amazing knife Raptr - DEC 27, 2013

Beautiful knife, blade is sharp as heck, nice design. Fingerhold is nice

4 Love it Bailey Lent - DEC 17, 2013

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.

5 excellent like all products from gerber MiKKa...CROATIA - DEC 11, 2013

stiff and precise...just a slightly heavier

1 worst tactical knife ever Darko Croatia - NOV 30, 2013

impossible to open with one hand!

4 Fine looking Archbaron - NOV 25, 2013

But is the belt clip removable or repositionable?

2 Tight Sal - OCT 23, 2013

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.
-Light weight.

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.

5 well done gerber Your name - OCT 22, 2013

just picked it up yesterday. great knife already used it

4 Nice, but wish it has better blade steel Alex - SEP 29, 2013

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.

5 Your Title Ryan - AUG 20, 2013

Love it! I take it everywhere I go.

5 Cant Wait Luke Kaiser - AUG 15, 2013

ordered it cant wait!!!

5 good but a little bigger is better Robert Stehl - JUL 26, 2013

Great knife but a half inch longer version is better.

5 WANT IT jack - JUL 1, 2013

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


4 Collector Nick - JUN 30, 2013

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.

5 Best knife ever T - JUN 20, 2013

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 .

5 My Knife Rita - JUN 9, 2013

Excellent to handle. One hand open. Love the feel. Great knife

5 Self defense Dave - MAY 20, 2013

5 Best Single Bladed Knife Robertson - MAR 26, 2013

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!!!!!!!

5 Great knife James - MAR 17, 2013

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...

5 Engineering Tech Jared - MAR 4, 2013

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.

5 Nice upgrade James - JAN 29, 2013

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.
Solid construction.
Great buy worth the money.

5 My bro has one Nathaniel - JAN 21, 2013

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



5 wow skh - NOV 5, 2012

what the hell is this thing i want one

5 LP Grimm - OCT 22, 2012

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!

5 hiking,backpacking patrick - OCT 14, 2012

I love it !
perfect for any mountain adventure...

5 jake jc - OCT 8, 2012

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..

4 truck driver Mike - SEP 22, 2012

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.

5 Harris Josh - SEP 1, 2012

Looks and usefulness, great job Gerber. Keep them coming your guys design team(s) is(are) realistic and have outdoors knowledge, thank you!

5 Everyday knife, perfect :) Nick - AUG 26, 2012

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.

5 Puss Magnet Jim - AUG 2, 2012

Great knife. Couldnt be happier!! SURVIVAL AT ITS FINEST

4 Climber Le Marquis - JUL 24, 2012

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...

4 KnifeEnthusiast Simple Suggestion - JUL 22, 2012

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.

5 Survivor Jonathan - JUN 22, 2012

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.

5 Awesome Cayden Poe - MAY 7, 2012


5 100% Texan Great design - APR 29, 2012

5 Neat Looking Knife IRoamAloneAtNight - MAR 27, 2012

Awesome Looking Knife.

5 $37 spent amazingly well Ryan - MAR 22, 2012

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.

4 kurt Kurt - FEB 22, 2012

A badass looking blade. Love the ring in the middle, good for solid grip. not sure about the G10 though. stick to my pocket.
