Gerber 650 Knife price
Just got the knife. It's nice and light but the locking mechanism is a little tougher than my other knifes. But that's not a problem for me, probably with wear and tear it'll get easier.
The quality of this knife can be summed up in a short story. I have carried this knife with my in my EDC every day for the past 2 years. Yesterday, I was cutting some paracord to tie down some items in the back of my truck. I this knife on my back tailgate step on accident. I drove 30 miles at speeds from 15 to 55mph. I found my knife STILL sitting on the step up, when I parked my truck at my destination. The Tech Skin kept the knife from moving an INCH during all that driving, stopping, turning and weather.
I couldn't be more impressed.
I love the size and shape of the knife but the locking mechanism is terrible. Closing the knife is impossible with one hand and difficult almost dangerous with two hands.
Using this little wonder for a month, is absolutely perfect - weight and size.Keeping it to my left front pocket (along my phone) and i am still amazed how functional and easy is to operate it, even with my non dominant hand (easily opening it - even with glove - but still need two hands to close it, minor issue i guess).
Excellent knife (for its' price), easily operated one hand (stiff at first, gets better as time pass), overall a descent EDC tool.
Can't say enough about the piece. Great design, practical, light. Genius!
My wife got me this in a pack with the Shard a couple of years ago. It really is a great little EDC knife. It takes a great edge and doesn't require frequent sharpening under normal use. An EDC in this category needs to have a balance between edge retention and ease of sharpening...the 7Cr17 does a great job. No need for a "superior" steel, as others have mentioned.
Love this knife. Thought it might be too small but its actually the perfect size for everything I need out of an edc knife.
awesome knife use mine all time left on hood car open drove off fell off at 50mph no damage razor sharp ready to rock
It's always nice to have as sharp knife with you and not having to worry about it damaging or scratching other things in my pocket!! I love the rubberized techhide handle!! Gerber should put the techhide handle on more knifes!!
