The Gerber US Assist knife was designed and built in Portland, Oregon. This 100% USA made spring assisted knife is outfitted with Gerber's B.O.S.S. Tech ball bearing system, which provides smooth and consistent blade deployment. It has a blade made from S30V steel for a high performance cutting edge. The textured GFN handle offers a reliable ergonomic grip with a plunge lock for convenient one-hand operation. A removable deep-carry wire clip completes the solid EDC design.Features:
This is a fantastic knife! The S30V blade is fantastic and looks very nice. Sharp out of the box. The handle is contoured and does not slip in the hand. The opening has quite a snap and opens with authority. I LOVE the fact that there is a lock on this knife, so the kids can not open it. Safety is a big factor for me. I also think the clip is the best one that I have seen. It is not so tight that you can't get it on a pocket, but it holds well. Get this knife! Made in USA.
I am stuck between 3 and 4 stars. Gerber’s assisted open mechanism and plunge lock are top notch. Opens fast. Stays locked. Definitely won’t open in your pocket. The clip is awful. It became lose after a day at work, mostly staying in my pocket. The S30v option loses its razor edge fast under light use. I tightened all the screws and the knife was a lot better. Clip no longer falls off. Shouldnt have to do that though!
