I heard about this knife from Wranglerstar and liked it so much, I decided to get one. Unfortunately the sage color was not offered on my initial order, so I picked this one up on the Gerber promotion.
I think a 3 inch blade is just the right size for an EDC folder. The blade steel is great as is the grind. The aluminum scales make it sturdy and slightly heavy. The blade centering is right on and I like the Warmcliffe blade shape. I do wonder about the construction with the screws going into the aluminum scales, something my Kershaw Dividend and Link also have.
The detente was a bit strong on my original one and after a prolonged fidgeting session along with another knife with a similarly stiff detente gave me a blister on the tip of my index finger, something that had never happened before. This one is much better and I can push button or light switch it open.
I am pulling for Gerber to make a comeback to their prominence of yesterday and I think this knife is a good step in that direction.
I had my moniker engraved on the handle and it was very well done by the Blade HQ staff. It turned out as good as I expected with the silver text perfectly centered and standing out against the sage background.
If you agree with my thoughts, you might want to check one out.

Not sure this green is green, mine looks grey. Thought I would give gerber another shot, since I used to own more then a few as cheap work knives which always did well, but were nothing special. This one is another very workable knife that is nothing special. Decent steel, smooth action, and horrible quality control. Bevel is off so bad that resharpening this thing will be a pain. Liner seem flimsy, with pitted metal showing all round the knife. Saber grinds aren't my favorite and this didn't change my mind. Overall could have been a great light weight knife, but it misses the mark for the money. I wanted to give this 4 stars, but can't. Not sad I bought this, but wouldn't recommend to anyone else.
Should be Five Stars

I'm guessing that I'm not the only person who bought this knife because it's a USA made flipper with fabulous steel. First off this is a great EDC knife. It really disappears into the pocket well and the action is absolutely superb. I would recommend this knife to anybody. On the other side mine came to me with one of the worst grinds I've ever seen on a blade and my pocket clip had about enough room to put a Bass pro shops catalog in without touching the knife. If Gerber wants to hire somebody to actually do their job in quality control then I'm available. So after fixing the blade and the clip my happiness level grew a lot but it's a shame I had to fix a brand new product myself.
American made!

Blade is centered, steel is great, feels nice in your hand. Deep pocket carry would definitely add to this knife! Looks like a phone call to Gerber to see if the sell one is in my future. Feels a little pricy, but being made in America comes with a price.
Worth Checking Out

I'm a Benchmade guy, and a ZT guy. But most importantly, I do prefer items made in the good old USA. So when I saw S30V knives from Gerber made here, I rolled the dice on it. The knife looks great and the aluminum handle manages to feel grippy. Love the dark green color, and the blade was sharp right out of the box. However, the knife came to me with an almost floppy action, despite everything I read about its great snappy action. And the blade was definitely well-centered. After a lot of adjustment on the screw on it, it now opens really well and feels great. Kind of a bummer that it needed adjustment right away, but I'm happy with the quality given the premium blade material and overall look of the knife, particularly considering the price point for a US-made knife.
Good knife

Do I like this knife? Absolutely! Do I LOVE it? Id have to say no. My only gripe about this knife is honestly the price. Its basically Gerber's answer to the Kershaw Leek. Construction is great, materials are great (except for the cheap plastic back spacer), blade centering is perfect, action is snappy and fast, made in the USA, love the blade shape, but these are all things that I think a Kershaw Leek would satisfy at nearly half the price. So, am I glad I bought it? Yes. Would I pay $100 for it again? No.
Love this knife

I just received mine and my initial review is good. This knife is similar in size and feel to my ZT0450, just a little less beefy but also about $70 less and still S30v steel, sharp as hell and made in USA. Action is great, really springs open into locked position. The liner lock seems a little wimpy only reason I am giving 4 stars. Well see how it holds up with use.
