Received my Fastball in about 4 days Opened it in front of my oldest grandson and all most lost to him poor kid Was disappointed with the flipper action Very difficult to open with the flipper Oiled it and have been playing with it for almost a week and still on the stiff side Hope it will loosen up soon
disapointment

I was excited about buying U.S made quality but it was not great enough.

good steel, bad grind. One side has super steep blade angle, obviously they forgot to grind one side....
too stiff to open w/ 1 finger.

I believe they had some Quality Control issue. they must have caught that kind of probrem and reproduct it by themselves.
I was ended up returning it.

I bought Gator premium folding knife instead, that was much greater knife to carry w/ you.
My new favorite EDC

The knife is light, fast, and sharp. It is cheap enough that I don't baby it, but nice enough that I want to carry it. It was a little stiff at first but after taking it apart and cleaning and lubing, It is smooth like butter.
Smooth!

The title says it all. It's both the reason for the for the 4 stars, and the lack of the 5th.
This knife opens smooth, closes smooth, and cuts smooth. I've had it as my EDC for about 2 weeks now and have gotten plenty of "oh, let me see that". It is light, pretty, and almost disappears in the pocket. The blade is nicely centered as well.

Now for the missing star.
It is smooth! Not quite to the point if slippery, but there is a definite lack of texture to the aluminum scales. Luckily since it is not spring assisted, it doesn't jump as the blade deploys (again, it's very smooth).
Last 2 minor things, but not overall deal breakers. 1.) Would be better with a deep carry clip. 2.) The flipper is a bit sharp on the edge, but that can easily be knocked down with a file.
Overall, a great knife, and would easily buy again if/when I lose it.
Perfect given time?

I fell in love with this knife as soon as i discovered it's existance. I picked one up quickly without knowing about Gerber's QC issues. Everything on the knife is perfect. However, the edge was very coarsely ground and not very sharp. I honestly expected better. But, some personal sharpening fixed all of that. The materials feel and look great. The fit and finish is also great. I think this knife will find a place right alongside the delica, mini grip, and bugout if Gerber keeps QC high.
Gerber stepping up the game?!

I received my fastball and was surprised at the level of fit and finish/build this knife has to offer for the price. Perfect centering, great materials, and it looks beautiful. Gerber hit a home run with this fastball (no pun intended) glad to see more USA products from them. Only thing I would change about it is a deep carry clip. But the fact it can be reversed for lefties is a nice touch.
