Don't be fooled by this lightweight knife, it offers show-stopping style and high performance features. The combo G-10 and stainless steel handle give superior grip and unrivaled aesthetic. The frame lock is easy to use and keeps the profile slim.
The Contrast's dual G-10/Stainless Steel handle unites show-stopping style and high performance in a unique every day carry folder available in full fine edge or serrated blade.
So a good friend of mine had this knife and i had asked if i could use it. The knife is nice and light weight, lighter than i expected which was sort of a downside but i didn't really mind it. I found the blade extremely sharp as i was able to carve wood with ease
Lightweight might truly be the best description thus far, and with this said - Beware of the poor Chinese quality with this folder. I sent a gently used one back today, it was by far carried more then an actual used knife, yet it never locked properly therefore creating another product with a serious lock failure and dangerous laceration hazards as well.
I didn't send this in with intentions centering around receiving another disposable product in exchange under the lifetime warranty. I did send this folder back with high hopes of the companies best interest. They should recall all of these lightweight blades while either enforcement with the qc with their Chinese outsourcing, or better yet, perhaps make everything in America once again while focusing on quality that used to be a focal point with every Gerber knife!
Finally got my hands on this splendid piece of craftsmanship and I am pleased with its overall design and edge retention on the blade. Frame lock is solid and safe.
Thank you Gerber.
This is an excellent knife. This was the first knife that I bought myself and could never be happier with it. Cuts through anything I need to and easy enough to tote around all day without being "constantly reminded" its there
