From Hate to Love, it only took a day!
I was at first disappointed in the knife, its the smallest i own and at first i could not get it to deploy easy, let alone 'assisted' which seemed weak. The small lock seemed hard and slow to use but then i started using it and i worked out how to get the best out of it. It was me, not the knife that changed. The lock is awesome, especially so it wont deploy in my pocket (a mistake that only occurred once, early on & wont reoccur as i know to lock it now) ~ an assisted knife must have a close lock i now realise! Next was the open, turns out you don't flick it out but up, vertical with the knife and it will deploy with ease! Its sharp out of the packet and with a needle like point, which is great for all the uses i've used it for (mostly opening deliveries) but its just as happy with any day to day light work. No its not for hand2 hand combat, no its not the best way to cut down an elm tree but its the nicest EDC i own (and thats more than a few i can tell you) as its size, connivence and low carry so discrete in pocket is amazing. I did have to bend the clip up a fraction as it was as tight as grip as ive ever seen, but easy fixed with a larger knife. Very happy, ordered a second gerber assisted i saw on sale now and i highly recomend as its so discrete that its hard to get in to trouble carry it day to day. Even shopping, ive pulled it for thread removal from clothes and no one screamed and called security, which a larger knife would have.
