Gerber Spring Assisted Knives
Most Gerber Spring Assisted knives include the patented F.A.S.T. (Forward Action Spring Technology) mechanism for quick, one hand operation. This is a quick, reliable spring assist mechanism. This exclusive mechanism was developed by acclaimed Oregon custom knife maker Butch Vallotton, whose name graces one of Gerber's line of Assisted Opening Knives. The side mounted button slide allows easy release of the blade and acts as a safety too.
