Love it! Had it in for several months and have zero complaints; I've read other reviews that some people had problems with the clip, I have not and will routinely check it. Even then I still have clipped inside my pocket which I prefer. This knife does everything I need it to.

I like this knife, the blade is sharp and holds an edge for a long time, but the pocket clip is absolute garbage. It comes loose all the time. I have already sent it back once and within a month, the same thing happened. I won't be buying any more Gerber knives with this clip.

I love this knife. Left mine on my bumper and lost it so I'll be buying a new one.
I like the locking mechanism when the blade is closed as well as when its open.
Has a great hand feel/weight.
The clip straight up sucks! One of the selling points for me for this knife is I could change the clip location. But once you do that, its never the same. I put lock-tight on the screw, which eliminated the issue of the clip falling off, however the clip is weak and poorly engineered for its attachment to the knife. Sometimes it will collapse on itself to one side or the other because its flimsy. It was tolerable due to the fact that the rest of the knife was perfect!

Wife gave me this knife for Christmas 2017. Have had no issues with this knife. Honestly the best knife I've ever owned.

I bought this Knife a week ago. The price is right, the quality of the knife is great, but the down fall is the clip. The design is poor at best. The screw that holds the clip had to be tightened twice in 5 days and today I found the knife in my pocket instead of clipped to it cause the screw came loos again and now the clip and screw are MIA. so now I have to see if i can order a new screw and clip and re-install this time with possibly some lock-tight to keep it from coming undone. Happy / not happy

Very well made knife, sturdy and easy to use. The ball bearings make this knife super smooth. The ramp studs might make it dig into your thumb but overall i highly recommend! Thanks Gerber!
