GB7162: 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.

Best knife I've ever !
Best knife ever! It's lightweight & holds an edge exceptionaly well. This knife holds up well for many daily uses, & I love how it opens & closes with the use of just one hand. I never leave home without it. Although the blade needs occasional tightening & ive had to replace the fast forward opening assist spring once, it's still worth the minor maintenance. It's the only forward assist knife I will ever own. Period.

Cons: None
Great knife for a great price.
Slim, rides low in the pocket, opens easily and locks open solidly. It also takes an edge very nicely in my opinion. For those that had problems, return for another or send it to Gerber, their return policy is pretty much no questions asked. Will probably buy another and put if up just in case.

EDC budget perfection IMO!
Poor Tmm, back in Jun 25, 2013 he bought this knife and like me was disappointed but then I played with it and I worked out the problem was NOT with the knife but my opening technique! You flick the studs vertical and not out and it deploys with INSTANT perfection! Mum always said a bad workman always blames his tools! Now the other bugbear was the tight pocket clip, so i just over stretched it (gently) and now its easy to clip on anything from dress pants to jeans too. I have several knives but its this one that i keep with me as its small/light, unobtrusive and has a wicked edge! I should also point out it has a awesome lock switch that auto locks open but EVEN BETTER locks it closed in the pocket, rendering accidental deployment impossible...
