On the battlefield, a knife is as much a tool as it is a weapon. The Order continues Gerber's history of American-made tactical knives designed to be used by soldiers and police officers for cutting, prying, digging and fighting. The Order features a 420HC blade with a black ceramic coating which protects against corrosion and minimizes reflective surfaces. The handles are made of glass-filled nylon and over-molded with a rubberized diamond texture, providing a secure grip in all weather conditions. The thumb hole in the blade allows for easy one-handed opening and the lock back mechanism provides structural integrity for heavy-duty work.
