The classic pocket carry is reinvigorated with fresh colors and updates to the all steel design. A modern drop point blade is deployed with dual thumbstuds for ambidextrous opening, and a durable frame lock can be operated with one hand.
An everyday carry knife should be durable and easy to operate in a pinch – the Paralite does just that. With an all steel construction and a robust modern drop point blade, this slim knife fits into your pocket yet is extremely strong. Dual thumbstuds grant easy access to the blade and the frame lock makes it simple to close with one hand.
Just wanna start off by saying what a beautiful knife. Now to the actual use of it. The knife out of the box has a very stiff opening of the blade easy fix but when you loosen the blade it has to much play side to side. And the way it locks good strong lock by the way but one issue the lock is so strong and does not stick up much so it kinda hurts my thumb trying to close it. And the blade is sharp but not as sharp as it could be out of the box. I know this is a cheaper knife but I love it I just wish Gerber could check into these problems that everyone's haven because this could be a great knife. I got this knife pretty much to use as a beater but I really like the style I'd love to see it revised.
i absolutely love the look and feel of the knife, unfortunately this is about where i stop singing its praises, the blade is extremely stiff out of the box, requiring two hands to open, im sure after a break in period this will be alleviated, my second issue is the knife was not sharp out of the box, and after sharpening it dies not hold its edge for long,its basically a beautiful butter knife at this point.
The Blade is way too tight to open and it is not easily closed either. the blade lock cant be unlocked with my thumb
I love the knife, other than the fact the blade is way to tight. Can't open it with one hand, that's the biggest down fall for me. But other than that it's a great knie
