This Paralite model features a rose finished blade, pocket clip, and hardware. The handle and thumb studs are coated black.
The Gerber Paralite is a reliable EDC knife with a build that's both lightweight and durable. It sports a drop point blade made from 5Cr15MoV stainless steel with dual thumb studs for one-handed opening. The stainless steel frame lock handle is shaped for lasting comfort and secure use. Comes fitted with a pocket clip for easy carry.
The Gerber Paralite is a nice inexpensive knife. I do not like the small thumb stud on the clip side. It makes it much more difficult to open than it already is. You can open it right-handed with some effort but near impossible to open left-handed. The knife looks and feels good. I would like a full-size thumb stud for the back side.
A nice knife that sits well in pocket, easy to open but most importantly it holds it edge very well, it is a good all rounder
The knife is beautiful, well proportioned, and strongly built. It is not a flipper or quickly deployed knife but that's not that important to me. The only issue I have is that it's a bit stiff.
The fit and finish is pretty good considering the price but it should be done in different colors. As far as functionality goes it’s a great user!
