nice basic folder.
This is a bare-bones, as-basic-as-it-gets liner locking folder. The best attribute is the light weight. The Void is very light for a folder of average/medium size. The liner lock works well, and one hand opening is easy with the squared thumb disc on the blade spine. I really like the way Gerber mounted the pocket clip high on the butt of the knife and folded it over, so the knife really sinks deep into your pocket, for discrete carry. It's also easy to withdraw from the pocket, even though it rides nice and deep. The rubbery "grip-tape" type inserts toward the rear of the handle actually do improve the grip. This is an all around low price, lightweight every day knife. Mine came shaving sharp, and, as it's an overseas-made knife, it doesn't use a super premium blade steel. That being said; I've found that steel quality aside, if you know how to touch up a knife edge on a ceramic stick or diamond hone, it can be done quickly and easily. A good value.
