GB31002761: Edict 154CM Folder


The Edict continues Gerber’s history of American-made tactical knives designed to be used by soldiers and police officers. This knife has a full size tanto-style blade with a fine edge and no serrations, allowing for maximum piercing and slicing capabilities. The Edict Folding Clip Knife is proudly made in Portland, OR.

Structural Integrity and a Secure Grip

The Edict’s blade is made of premium 154CM steel for excellent edge retention and features a black ceramic coating which maximizes corrosion resistance while minimizing reflective surfaces. Thumb studs allow for quick one-handed blade deployment, and the knife’s lock back closing mechanism provides structural integrity in heavy-duty applications. The glass-filled nylon handle is built with a large palm swell, a finger guard for heavy-duty work, and a rubberized diamond texture for a secure grip in all weather conditions.

Carry Assurance with You

The Edict Folding Clip Knife is made for hard labor over the long haul. Slip it into a pocket for daily access to a knife that will answer with strength and assurance when tasked. Tie the knife down using its lanyard hole for additional security.

Edict is One of My Favorite Tanto Blades
If like me you're a fan of the tanto blade shape then you will really love the Gerber Edict. I've owned this knife for almost 4 years now. It has done everything I can think of doing with a blade; cut rope, cut sticks, tarp, etc. even used it to cut the head off a copperhead snake. I have put it through all kinds of abuse and it’s still going strong. Has never chipped on me. I sharpen it to a razor edge on a wetstone twice a year and it holds an edge for a long time. This knife is solid and locks up tight as the day I bought it. I understand the tanto is not for everyone. It has it’s strengths and weaknesses, so you need to make sure this is the right blade for you. Tanto excels at piercing and precision cutting. Not the best knife for skinning an animal so know what you are getting into. Also you do get a lot of knife for the money: Blade steel is 154CM, strong pocket clip, ergonomic handle that feels good in the hand (even in wet conditions), lanyard hole, thumb studs, adjustable pivot screw, and best of all it is 100% made in the USA.

Pros: Blade Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Lock Type, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality
Lightweight, ergonomic,solid, great steel, not the best fit and finish
Not the best fit and finish, but strong and safe lock back design and exellent blade steel. The handle which is not the prettiest one is VERY ergonomic, nice rubber inserts - overall handling and feel of this knife in hand is just great - it feels glued to your hand even when it's wet or dirty.Mine came dull like butterknife but after reprofiling the cuting edge (and that's what I always do with my new knives - factor cutting edge never matches my standards) it cuts great, holds it's edge comparable to any 154CM benchmade I had. And that's good :)Best thing about this knife is how lightweight it is! Totally disappears in your pocket. Over 9 cm of blade with such lightweight design is just amazing.

Cons: Ease of Opening
I have been carrying and using this knife for about a year and a half now. I have owned many Gerber knives in my time, but I am going to go ahead and say that this is absolutely one of the most reliable, well built, just all around tough folding knifes Gerber has ever built. The 154CM blade takes a beautiful edge at fairly low sharpening efforts, but holds that same edge long after. The handle is honestly one of my favorites out of my entire knife collection. The rubber overmolded glass-filled nylon handle is firm, yet very grippy, and far too satisfying to work with.I think it should be noted that the fact that this knife has a very sturdy deep-carry pocket clip is just the icing on the cake. Never once has it fallen out of my pocket, even in the craziest of conditions and tasks.I am such a fan of this knife that I will be buying the newer bead-blasted variant for my father, as he is the one who introduced me to Gerber Legendary Blades so long ago. The best part though...This beautiful knife was constructed right where I live: beautiful Portland, Oregon.
