      As others have stated, the knife is a little stiff to open up initially. Don't let this stop you from purchasing! Amazing quality as always from Gerber. Just work the knife regularly and it will start to flow more with ease. I would purchase again!

      I don't know what material is used to build the handle, but it weighs and touches like carbon fiber, super durable and light and gives a nice grip, and I will never have to worry about leave it close to the grill and get the handle melted. The spring inside the handle provides a nice assistance to open the knife. It does feel a little bit stiff to open the blade, but in my the stiffness in just right, and I just love playing with it, pop open and fold back, it is just satisfying.

    • Quality but pretty stiff
      Reviewer: S. Pankonie

      11/25/2015

      This is another high quality product but beware the stiffness starting out is pretty significant. I expected a much smoother action out of the box. You really have to work this to get it function much smoother.

      Great style of handle and blade. Light weight with strong opening function and lock. Very nice handle and clip that feels good in your hand. A 5 star knife for the price but not sharp, so it gets a 4.

      Reviewer: Crow

      The Knife is definitely tight and needs to be broken in just like all the reviews reported. I have had mine for one week now, and after working the action wet with water and Bon Ami cleanser. I worked the action 500 times everyday for a week. WARNING. The blade is very sharp and I cut myself the first day several times be carefull. At the end of the session I would spray it with WD 40 and blow the excess off and then use a silicone spray. The knife now has the equivalent of 6 years use and works great! I do plan to replace the post on the blade with a larger diameter bee hive post. My thumb was very sore after a week of opening and closing the knife. Plus I have to thank Tactical Gear for a great website.

    • It's a good knife
      Reviewer: Bradley

      12/29/2014

      Took a little "breaking in", but it opens like a champ now. Lightweight, very sharp, feels good in the hand, good size for everyday carry. We'll see how the edge holds. My biggest gripe is the same as with every other knife I've ever bought with a pocket clip, it's on the wrong end. And this knife doesn't give you the option of moving it. All in all I'm happy with it, and I would recommend it to anyone for an everyday knife, nothing more.

    • Decent Knife
      Reviewer: Jaime S.

      12/17/2014

      Decent knife for the price. Received it and had problems with the assisted opening....super hard to open. I understand its a new knife that needs to be used to get the action worn in, but I have other Gerbers right out of the box that were not AO and opened easier. Needless to say contacted Tactical gear, they were great, they've already sent a replacement before I sent my original. Great customer service, hopefully this one works as advertised.

      The knife itself is a good knife, very sturdy and durable, but takes a bit to get used to being forced to open the knife with thumb studs over a finger stud. But definitely a very good knife over some others I've purchesed.

      Reviewer: Justin

      9/30/2014

      It has a very nice and strong locking mechanism, that also doesn't stick up when trying push the release button. It also has a very sharp blade. I am thoroughly impressed and happy with my purchase.

      While the knife is a little hard to open at first, with practice it becomes very fluid and very fast. I love the weight and feel in my hand and use the knife multiple time throughout the day.

      Reviewer: Rocky

      A very sharp looking, and feeling knife. The Assist is just a leaf spring positioned to assist its opening. The knife has a 'plunger button' safety. This model is very light and it has a lanyard hole and both a left / right thumb stud to open with both sides. For a quick assist, keep it lightly oiled and work it a few times; it's built for reliability. A very good value for the money.

      The quality and price of this knife pleased me. Gerber offers free sharpening for the life of the knife, that is a good deal.
