This lightweight everyday carry knife has an open frame that is the ultimate in minimalist design. Easy to clean, carry, and open, the Paraframe is an effortless addition to your pocket or belt clip. Available in multiple blade variations, this knife handles it all.
An everyday carry knife is only as useful as it is easy to carry and access. The Gerber Paraframe Tanto Knife walks the line between full-size functionality and compact size for discreet carry. With a closed length of just over 4 inches, the Paraframe is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, yet still packs a nearly 3-inch tanto-style blade.
The first thing you’ll notice when you handle this knife is its balanced feel. Like an evenly weighted skipping stone, the skeletonized metal handle complements the weight of the blade to provide a positive, confident feel for a smaller knife. Equally as important, it’s a pleasure to carry. Clip it to your pocket or belt, and it literally disappears until you know you need it.
IT'S IN THE DETAILS
Gerber’s decades-long history crafting tools shines in the small details that have earned the Paraframe design its popularity: twin knurled thumb studs for easy blade engagement, a beefy frame lock for secure blade use, and the blade itself, a capable partially serrated tanto style. There’s even a metal pocket clip to keep it handy at a moment’s notice.
I have several Paraframe knives and love them all. These knives are very sturdy and perform very well. If you are looking for an affordable option to open boxes etc...., this knife will serve you well.
I just received the Paraframe Tanto knife in the mail. There is NO reason why there should be a negative or low star review for this knife.. period. If there is truly a factory defect you should contact the seller or Gerber and they should help you out. Out of the box this knife is a little "stiff" to open and it's due to the frame lock design. No big deal though. Open it a little and wrist snap it open like a boss. The knife isn't scalple sharp, but it shouldn't be.. I don't know why other reviewers are using this knife for everyday use. This is an EDC (everyday carry NOT everyday use) self defense knife.. period! The only reason you should be using this knife is just like using your CCW firearm.. do not pull it unless you intend to use it in defense of yourself or others. For $25 bucks this knife fits the bill.. I got it on sale from another source for $15 so absolutely no complaints about this knife at all. If you know anything about knives and need a good EDC self defense tool then you should buy it. Stay safe and exercise your right to self defense.
Good knife. Bought it back in '13, I think, kept it at my daughter's house because the TSA won't let me carry it on a plane. I like the thing. It's light, strong and seems to hold an edge well.
This is the first gerber knife i bought and i just love this.it feels right in your hand,i just cant leave home without it!
Beware of knock offs. Pretty sure "the great deer hunter" got a knock off. I actually got this one mysteriously. Went to fan expo wearing a neted top and found this knife caught on my shirt. Did some research. It's a pretty awesome knife. Noticed it has a serial number like a gun. Which I found interesting. The knife is very strong and durable but light weight and fairly balanced making it easy to use.
I had this knife for over a year now and it works wonderful. I practice throwing knives and one day i saw a gofer, and as always i had this knife with me and threw the knife and killed the gofer 100%. I recommend this knife to every one
I bought this knife to replace my standard Paraframe after it was stolen and decided on the Tanto version of it.
From the first day I carried it I could feel that it was a well-made knife. It fits in my hand quite well, it is balanced, and the pocket clip is stiff enough to resist falling out of my pocket.
As an Army cadet who carries it an uses it in a tactical setting as well as a civilian carry knife.
I have carried this for over six months continuously with daily use for all sorts of tasks from using it as a screwdriver to field-dressing small game. It is made of very hard and holds its edge very well against all kinds of abuse.
I highly recommend this knife as an every day carry knife as well as a small tactical knife.
I've had one of these knives for years now. Mine has a factory non-slip camouflage wrap instead of black. I use it everyday as a Millwright/Industrial Mechanic. This knife has been through hell and never lets me down. Highly recommended.
This knofe is a piece of garbage I bought it and the blade bent from cutting the package it came in and I would recommend you to stay away from this Chinese over prices crappy metal ps the paint just peeled off with my finger - I have other knives from gerber that are great but they fumbled on this one badly
Great knife! Got it on sale at Canadian Tire for $15, the best $15 I ever spent. With a lifetime warranty you can't go wrong!
