GB7161: Fast Draw
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
Own one and you'll never carry another
I have two of these knives. Live on a farm and occasionally misplace one but at 63 wht do you expect. My knife goes everywhere with me. Church on Sundays, if i'm jet sking in the lake, or farming cutting hay string. They don't show it in this picture, but the clip is fixed where when you pull this knife from your pocket, your right thumb is positoned on the thumb stud for quick opening of the blade. When carried in the back pocket, you can pull your knife in such a way that its fully opened the second you pull it out. This knife is quicker than any knife ive ever used.

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
