I expect nothing and still i'm let down
Timothy M.
All I wanted out of this knife was to have a cleaver style knife that opens, locks, and closes. This knife barely does two of those.

The action is gritty and stiff (which was expected) but once the knife is open there is large amounts of blade play. The lockbar is so stiff it is a pain to close, somehow Gerber managed to make a knife that is both stiff and loose at the same time. Even after tightening the screws and adding a little lube it still is to date the worst knife I have owned.
Cool design but needs work.
Jeffrey M.
I really like the design of this knife but thatís where my liking stops. Hard to open one handed, lock is hard to operate, and had to bend the clip out some to get it to clip on the pocket. I would gladly pay more money for better fit and finish. Maybe a flipper and better bearing option? Again, cool design just needs some work.
Good but not great.
Jonathan M.
Was very hesitant because Iíve never had a Gerber that worked well. I am a sucker for cleavers and decided for the price it was worth the risk. Turned out to be well worth it. For the price it is an awesome knife and the only downfall is like others have said is opening one handed is difficult. I put a zip tie on the hole and itís made one handed opening much easier. If youíre on the fence about this one I say go for it.
Razor Sharp
Riley H.
This knife is awesome. Feels great in the hand, and comes razor sharp out of the box. I received it and immediately started to use it and put it through its paces. It's a little tough to open one handed, but I'm guessing with time it'll open easier like other Gerber products I own.
Awesome Gerber for the $

I'd like to say, this is definitely the direction I'd like to see Gerber's EDC knives to continue in. Framelock, Overtravel Stop, Awesome fit and finish at a competitive price. Sure, it's not the greatest steel, but man, absolutely a bang for your buck. No blade play, excellent lock up, awesome feel. I'd like to see the opening hole be either widened, or have a flipper option, because the hole is a bit tricky to learn, and like to rough up the thumb pads. Put it this way: if this was US made, with S30V and had a semi-improved opener, I'd easily pay $150. Awesome design, super comfortable. Reminds me of an Impaler with the cleaver/wharncliff blade. Just badassary. 4 stars all day.
