As Gerber's first assisted opening knife produced, this knife inspired innovation and helped to define a brand. The lightning-quick opening mechanism is still employed today, yet the classic, functional design is all its own. The mechanism was created exclusively for Gerber and patented by famed Oregon knife maker Butch Vallotton.

Cons: None
Good utility knife.
This assisted opening knife is well designed. Is easy to open and close with one hand. Only one setback, the blade became somewhat loose in the handle after allot of use. Was easy to tighten up with a small square bit. But so will any other work blades that indeed are used for work, prying and so on. Work knives are not crow bars or saws. Good quality for the price. If you loose it you have not lost a hundred bucks or more. Blade is good, locking mechanism is sound. Pocket clip appears to be long enough for use if you wish to. I personally have lost to many knives working while pulling other items out of my pocket. Blade is of legal length for pocket carry.

Good EDC
Good knife, good quality steel. Holds edge very well. Only complaint is the safety on the locking mechanism... It stopped working about 6 weeks after purchase. Other than that, good knife

Great EDC
I have had this knife for quite a while now. I carry it nearly every day. The action is still smooth as ever and fast after hundreds if not thousands of openings. The spring assist is still as fast as ever, even after playing with it for hours on end. The blade came sharp and has stayed that way through a lot of use. The lock on this knife is very well designed. It's very accessible and locks up tight. It has stood up to spine whacks very well. I would prefer a plain edge, but the serrations are quite good. I liked the pocket clip however it got hung up on a seat belt getting out of a car and got pulled out of place, still working on it. Overall, this is a great knife especially for the price, great job Gerber.
