Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Stainless Steel
Stainless Steel
Utilizes a wide variety of alloys but all contain a minimum of 10.5% Chromium content. Stainless steels will not corrode, rust, or oxidize but are not completely stain-proof so the title is somewhat of a misnomer.
Steel Handles
Steel Handles
Stainless Steel knife handles provide strength and durability and look and feel great.

Pros: Weight, Handle Feel
Cons: None
Fairly cheap but love this knife
Got this knife years ago and it has dutifully served me since. I use it primarily as an EDC and it has worked well for minor food prep and all the smaller tasks I've used it for. What I love so much about it is how it feels in my hand. The contour of the frame and the cutout where my index finger falls makes it feel like an extension of my hand. The blade doesn't keep an edge like an expensive blade but it is easy to sharpen and holds up well for minor tasks. Never had an issue with the frame lock failing or the thumb screws loosening. It is possible to push your fingers into the frame if your fingers are small but in all the time I've had the knife I have never come close to accidentally cutting myself.

Pros: Blade Material, Weight, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Handle Material, None
Watch out for your fingers in the handle when closing
I really want to like this knife. It felt good. The blade was razor sharp out of the box. But watch out for your fingers. The openings in the handle allow your fingers or thumb to get cut. The blade is very sharp and will cut your finger easily when closing if you are not very careful. Gerber should change the design slightly to fix this.

Excellent knife
I gave this knife to my son, who is a Captain in the Army. He's delighted with it and carries it on duty (he's in the Paras)
