Dubious Blade
I’ve owned several Gerber Empowers, they have all proven to be terrific automatics. However the latest Empower I ordered had some ugly play in the blade so I sent it back for a replacement. There were no more knives to replace it with so they refunded my money. Knife Center did put that loose bladed knife back up for sale knowing that some schmuck that doesn’t know knives would still be happy with it.

Problems With Pocket Clip
I feel this knife is lacking in a serious way. In the aspect of edc, if your like me, enjoy simplicity of sticking a folder inside your pant front pocket for easy access, this knife has a serious flaw. Those hex screws which hold the pocket clip together are coming loose and need to be tightened up every two weeks or so. Real pain. Perhaps needs an additional washer added. Any suggestions would be stellar. The overall handle and blade itself I’m happy with. Great cutting edge and deploy-lock system. Just not a great every day carry.

A Very Solid Gerber
I got this as an EDC after handling it at Bladeshow. I’m not the biggest Gerber fan and I consider their products to be hit or miss in terms of design and quality. This knife is a hit on both! The design is sleek and comfortable, and the build quality is excellent. For the money I can’t think of a better auto. In my opinion this is a better knife than Gerber has produced in a while and is hopefully an indication of a return to high quality and innovation from yet another classic American manufacturer.
