The evolution of a proven design, this everyday carry pocket knife stands up to the daily grind with all steel construction. Dual thumbstuds allow for ambidextrous opening and a durable frame lock can be operated with one hand.
A smart combination of two best-selling designs, the Airlift offers the durable steel frame of the Paraframe with the streamlined blade and handle design of the RipStop. The result is an everyday carry knife that is light in the pocket yet extremely resilient in use.
I pick this knife up at a Canadian Tire near my work this past summer, when i first got in didn't think very highly of it. It was very difficult to open and close. If I were writing this review on the first day of owning this knife i would most likely agree with M@st3r_Kutt3r's review. But now that I've got used to it, I think its really good for the money. Some knives take longer to break in than other, this is one of those knives that takes a bit longer. But once this knife is broken in its not half bad. Doesn't hurt that it all steel construction. I don't hard use my knives, but this is one that could definitely handle a lot of abuse, despite its size.
the Gerber name on a China made knife. You can't be proud of a China made knife in America.
It takes way too much effort to get the blade closed. I can barely push in the lock lever to make it close.
Not sure why Gerber is letting China do these knives. I mean I can buy cheap China knives everywhere now.
The only difference with this one is they Put
I got China knifes that are way cheaper and nicer than this Gerber branded one. But I like supporting my Country and being proud of the products. I will not buy another Gerber now. Huge disappointment in the craftsmanship and quality from this company.
