Gerber Titanium-Coated Fine Edge Knife - Introducing a clip folder for knife people who prefer the look of a straight spine; the profile reveals a "seamless" design that begins at the back of the blade and continues along the length of the upper edge of the handle. Another aesthetic design touch is the series of seven slanting oval openings in the anodized aluminum handle. The blades are constructed of high carbon stainless steel that is coated with titanium nitride for added corrosion resistance. There's a thumb stud and finger clip for easy one-handed opening. And, there's an integral finger guard for an extra measure of safety. Bottom line? You'd do well to own such a highly evolved knife.

Daily carry material

I purchased this knife to replace a gerber paraframe which disappointed me when the frame screws came loose in the backcountry, I have carried every variety over the years and this has come to be the knife on my hip everyday.

As a knife for general use, cutting rope, wood, wire, rubber, plastic, metal it holds up surprisingly well. As with any blade it does dull over time, but a properly done resharpening occasionally will keep it in working condition.

It never leaves my side on extended (10+) day treks and is extremely reliable. The pivot screw comes from the factory very stiff, but after some use it becomes a smooth reflex.

If you should notice potential problems with the frame screws, pull them all out, coat them in loctite, then retighten. The only detriment to the design is that oversight which over time can result in the frame becoming loose

Incredible knife

Have had this knife for 4 years. Carry it for daily use in the city, country, woods and in my rifle range bag. Still smooth to open and stays sharp for a long time. Easy to clean and has taken a beating especially as a bottle opener. Can't beat this for its price, I have relied on this knife for years and highly recommend it and I try to push the limits of my tools.(I never write reviews but I'm buying a smaller Gerber for my girlfriend and saw my knife here and couldn't resist saying how awesome it is).

Great Knife

I have the fine edge version of this knife and I NEVER, EVER, under any circumstance, leave the house without this in my pocket. I always carry this knife with me. Perfect size for almost any job, be it work or play. Fits my hand wonderfully. The finger flip on the back end opens it up quickly and easily. The lock has never come close to failing on me. Super easy one handed operation. I have had Kershaws, Bucks, Schrades, Cold Steels, and Spydercos, but this is the only knife I carry with me anymore.

Great knife for the price

I have used this knife as my daily carry for a while now. It gets the job done, and doesn't hurt as much if I lose it or break it (which hasn't been an issue). This Gerber has been good. My only complaint is that the edge gets dull from time to time and the serrated portion makes it more challenging to sharpen. If I were to lose this one, I would probably buy the straight edge version.

Good knife

I chose this knife because it was the pocket knife with the longest blade that I saw. It also has a knobe on the back which makes the knife very easy to flip open with your pointer finger.

The only thing I don't like about it, is it can be a bit difficult to close. The lock can be hard to push open sometimes.

Serious Little Knife

This is a serious blade for a little knife. Great blade.

Handle feels safe when you're cutting.

Handle looks like it would be flimsy, but it is not; it's really stiff.

It is compact, really slim, so it fits into pocket or backpack just fine.

It's a very good, classic (single purpose) knife.

Amazing Knife!

This knife is extremely light, sleek, and opens with one hand with a finger flick. It is not an assisted opening device, which is a good thing. The liner lock allows for one handed closing as well. I am really impressed with this strong and simple knife. So much so, it is my primary camping blade now!

reliable knife

I have draged this knife through the deserts of New Mexico, the mountains of colorado, the appalaition trail, and through the swamps of jersey, this is a tough, light reliable knife. the only thing I have bad to say is that it does dull quickly, and you probably couldn't fight off wolverines with it.

great knife

this knife is great. not only does it look cool but it is very durable and easy to maintain. i like the grip and was very easy to clean when dropped in the sand. this is my primary knife to carry anywhere.

Negative Reviews:

over rated

A previous reviewer said he had difficulty opening it with the thumb stud. This knife is designed to be opened by using your index finger on the switch on the opposite side of the thumb studs. I also want to clarify that this is not at 440c blade. It is a 440a blade, which is softer and not as high quality as 440c.

My knife was a bit stiff to open at first, but then loosened up. After flicking the knife open for a couple of minutes the action loosened and the blade opened and locked readily. However, in the open position the thumbstuds rest on the handle to hold the blade in place. The finish on my knife was poor and the thumbstuds rested on the aluminum handle rather than the interior steel liner. The aluminum quickly wore and the blade now has unrepairable vertical play. I returned the knife and looked at the handle finish on other Evo's at REI. Most of them didn't have the handle and the liner well aligned. Over time, you will most likely end up with vertical play on this knife due to its design and poor build quality.

You don't have to sacrifice quality for affordability. For a cheap every day carry knife I recommend the Benchmade Mini-Pika. It has a 2.9 inch 440C blade, weighs 1.8 ounces, and has a much better quality finish for half the price of this knife on-line. Of course, there's other options too, and it all depends on what you're looking for.

Fine blade but poor hex screws

For the first 3 months, I enjoyed the knife immensely - has a great blade, shape and it is light weight. Unfortunately it fist started to rattle, then quickly fell apart as the hex screws came loose. If you look at the knife you can understand my difficulty in fixing it. I then swapped it out for another one (same model) but the exact same thing happened, but this second time I threw it out instead of sending it in for a replacement. So beware.

Good for an inexpensive folder

I'm very picky about my knives, so for me "average" is good praise.

As a basic pocket knife, this is a good inexpensive tool. It is indeed slim and light, sharp out of the package, and has a nice feel to it. There are significant compromises in its design and materials compared to premium knives, but given the price, this is to be expected.

1. The blade material, 440C Stainless, is on the soft side, and will lose its edge more quickly than harder alloys.
2. The blade itself is thin, and will not stand up to heavy abuse.
3. The pivot will work itself loose after a while.
4. Opening one-handed is difficult (and a little dangerous... if you're pushing hard to open it with the thumb-bolt and it opens suddenly, if you slip you've got a LOT of force driving your thumb against that blade). This will get better with time, but at the direct cost of a tight lock-up.
5. Compound edges (part serrated) are notoriously difficult to sharpen without harming the serrated portion of the blade.

That being said, it's certainly unfair to compare this to a nice Benchmade costing four times as much. It's a fine light-duty knife, aesthetically pleasing, unlikely to alarm co-workers, and is useful for daily around-the-office tasks. I'd definitely want something sturdier in the back country, particularly if I were carrying only a single knife.

Not bad. Could be better

Bought this to carry at work. I like that the clip design allowed it to be clipped inside a pocket without the top sticking out. Fit and finish are nice, the blade is sharp and it's a nice lightweight knife.
It's very stiff to open. I had to remove the clip and loosen the Torx screw that holds the blade in place to get it to open easily and smoothly. (I then used some blue Loctite to keep the screw in place). The blade lock is VERY stiff, because it's too long. I'm tempted to remove it and shave just a tiny bit of it off with a bench grinder. It's just WAY too stiff because of it's length.
As much as I like Gerber products and own other knives of theirs, I'm not a huge fan of this one, but since I've got it "tuned" as I want it, I'll keep it.

isnt all its cracked up to be

I have used this on searches multiple times and around the house. Ive had to sharpen it twice since i got it in September 2009, it came with the coating over the blade which made it extremely ineffective and first.
