A more aggressive take on the Paraframe, this knife has the same open frame design handle but adds an angular edge. The entire knife is titanium coated for corrosion resistance. A fine edge blade is succesful with both detail work and tough jobs.
A more aggressive take on the Paraframe, the Powerframe has a less-rounded, more-angled handle. Its fine-edge blade uses the same stainless steel, liner lock body design. Lightweight and easy to open, the entire knife has a smooth titanium coating, making it more corrosion resistant and less reflective. It’s a tough and technically sound daily-use folder.
I like this knife because it's small so I can slip it in my pocket, but if I want to, I can clip it on my belt or pants. It's a very durable knife and it will last me a long time. I used it all summer for whittling and it's still sharp. The reason I only give it 4 stars is because it's not the best for whittling but that's only because it's small. My mom won't by me the bigger version but I'm still glad that i have such a good knife. Thank you, Gerber.
This is a great little knife. I have had it for 6-7 years as a back up to my Applegate Folder and my DMF Auto. It also serves as my "gentlemen's" knife when in business casual attire. It is a great pocket knife, easy to sharpen, light weight, comfortable in your pocket, and keeps a decent edge. Its very easy and quick to deploy the blade, as well as easy to keep clean. It is one of my favorite knives.
It would be a great knife..... if only didn't have this awful design flaw, under the clip there is a little piece of the frame that gets stuck in the jeans (that have a big sewing) and makes impossible to get out...
I've had this knife for 6 years and in all that time it has been my trusty sidekick. Keeps a sharp edge well and sharpens easily when needed. Easy and uncumbersome to carry in your pocket. Very sturdy frame that locks the blade firm even after years of abuse (and abused it has certainly been). Over the six years I've had it, I have had to sharpen the blade and tighten the screws. The pocket clip has broken and one of screws was lost somewhere along the way yet it is still as sturdy and reliable today as it was when I got it. Great quality. I likely won't be buying a new knife any time soon.
This was my first real knife ever i got it when i was 18 im 21 now and its been through hell. But its tough and kept its edge. Yes some sharpening was needed after awhile but what knife doesnt? This knife is still my everyday carry.
After I passed my almost new Para-Frame I down to my son, I bought myself a Power-frame. I've cut everything from rope to an apple outta my lunchbox. I always say your knife is your life on the pipeline. I've also ran off the line into the woods to sneak in a quick deer hunt and used it to field dress a deer also. I loved how well the open frame design was so easy to clean! Great bang for your buck also.
I've had this knife now for about 2 years. I adopted it as my EDC after losing my Kershaw and I haven't been disappointed. This thing has been dropped in water, beat and hammered on, and all around abused. It's held an edge for a long time and stays sharp for a long time as well. My only issue is in the design, it tends to catch on the inside of my pants pocket and has a hard time coming off as well. this has made me some what reluctant to carry it now due to the fact that it takes two hands for me to get it off, one to pull up wards and one to lift the clip up so it can come off of my pocket. The knife is light but yet has enough weight for it to feel like a real knife as opposed to something such as a Benchmade Griptillian (which is another grate knife), but yet remains light enough for me to be able to comfortably carry it. The only few things I would change is size and a few things for design. I wish it was just a little larger, this is of course a personal preference thing and varies person to person. another thing I would change is the frame, really on thing that annoys me sometimes, I would get rid of the hill like cut near the top of the knife, the pointed end of it catches on my pocket (and many others too) and makes it a chore to get out.. Other than that it is a knife I have enjoyed for a long time and won't be replaced for a long time either.
Pros: Light weight
Holds and Edge
Simple yet effective
Size (just personnel preference)
I just got this knife today and the quality of the knife is great. Opens pretty easy and is but is still kinda stiff. One thing is the knife doses need is jimping on the back of the knife by the handle. But the knife is great for the money.
I got this knife as a replacement for a cheap broken winchester knife and this is a better knife it came razor sharp out of the box, highly recommend it.
This is a hard knife to beat, I have had it for 2-3 years, it is a razor. It is tough as nails, and is so light and slim, I have to remind myself it is in my pocket. GO NOLES!!!
great knife I've had the dark version of this knife and it was difficult to open at first but with a little time it was one of the best knives I've had. the only complaint i have is the downward notch on the frame sometimes catches on my pocket... other than that great knife!!!
its thin, blade is thin, handle is thin, but blade shape is AWESOME.
i like this way more than the para-frame, its super easy to take apart, clean, do whatever.
came WAY sharp, freaking lasers.
i love this knife, its disappears when you pocket it and it puffs its chest up with enthusiasm when you wield it properly.
get it, use it, and find and engagement ring that will fit it.
Feels good on grip, sharp blade, and looks good. One flaw I could not get past. Side frame has rounded tip that hangs up on pocket edge.
Had only just taken this out of the packet when i sliced my thumb open with it! Great though. Frame lock was a little different than i thought it was going to be. Actually thought it was a factory error at first. The knife itself was a little thinner than i thought but i'm not complaining. Great knife for the price. Definitely puts my other folders to shame.
I carry this knife as my edc, its a little stiff to fold out with one hand, but is light weight and has a great blade. A great bang for your buck knife!
I have had my power frame for 2 or 3 years now and it never leaves my pocket. Its a work horse and a half. Have not had to sharpen it once the entire time I've had it and it still has a great edge (obviously its dulled but its still useful). I even used i
