The Gerber EVO is a folder for knife people who prefer the look of a straight spine. The profile reveals a "seamless" design that begins at the back of the blade and continues along the length of the handle. The anodized aluminum handle makes the knives both organic and aggressive. There's a thumb stud and finger clip for easy one-handed opening. There is also an integral finger guard for an extra measure of safety. Bottom line? You would do well to own such a highly evolved knife.
