The Gerber Sedulo is an EDC knife built right. It has a lightweight FRN handle with a grippy texture and a high-quality CPM S30V stainless steel blade. The Pivot Lock system keeps the blade open tight until you're ready to close it and is accessible via right and-left hand users. Gerber folding knives are getting better all the time, and this entry is easily one of their best: it's well-made, has great materials, is affordable, and is made in the USA.

I Have lots of knives including Benchmade Griptilians, Bugouts, a Mini Adamas and a Freek. Plus I have Hogue Dekas and Doug Ritters. I bought this this knife before BHQ carried it but I can honestly say that it is in the mix with all of the above mentioned knives. I'd say it's on par with the Griptilians - with a little better opening and closing action after you get the timing down. The Freek, Adamas and Doug Ritter's are a step above. At the price Blade HQ is offering this knife during the Black Friday sale - it is a steal - get one for your collection. I wish Gerber made more knives like this one - but I think this is the best Gerber Knife model out there.
I took a chance on this knife because of the ratings found on YouTube. I've had Gerbers before and they were so-so. I have a Benchmade Griptilian and I love that knife. Quality of the Sedulo is very good and the edge is nice and sharp. However the lock is horrible! I Lubed it and it still sticks in the open position. The indention on the blade is steep and nearly impossible to unlock. Not all the time though, but often enough to make it worrisome. Add to that, the thumb stubs on the lock are sharp enough to cause pain. simply put, it hurts to use the lock. This is unacceptable for an American made knife. I'm 81 years old and I've had more knives than I can count. I have close to 100 knives in my possession now. Comparing the Gerber to the Benchmade makes me wish I had spent a few more dollars and bought another Griptilian. I can handle the sharp edges on the lock studs, but I cannot take the lock refusing to work as it should. One other thing, who sends a $124.00 knife out strapped to a piece of cardboard? My last 2 knives from Gerber we strapped to cardboard. I have $35.00 knives that came in a nice box. Sorry Gerber! G.P.
This is the first USA made Gerber product I have purchased. I think the value is very good; you can tell they made some choices to keep the price down, but they made cuts in smart places. For example, the plastic scales are rough around the edges, literally, and you can see where the extra bits from the mold were cut off. The packaging was just a cardboard box with the knife zip-tied in, no warranty card or anything. What you do get is very sturdy construction, a thoughtful and well executed design with great ergos and a great clip, a decently tuned action out of the box, and a great blade shape in a good steel. However, that blade did not come very sharp out of the box. Usable, but it had a very high angle bevel that was not consistent. It was 20 degrees on one side, 25 on the other, and closer to 30 near the tip. I sharpened it to 18 degrees with great results, so it seems their heat treat was on point.
