Wasn't Dissapointed
Really liked this knife when I got it and the price was right for it... -It's thin and sturdy (made from stainless steel and G-10 with a nested liner under the scale) -The blade locks up tight from the frame lock and it's never failed on me -I like the jimping on the blade spine that runs to the rear upper handles, it's a pretty comfortable knife. -It's a no frills pocket clip but it's not some small piece of steel...a little stiff at first but it's pretty tough! 4-stars for one reason...the blade steel.... Gerber uses a Chinese steel called 7Cr17MoV which is compared to 440A and there's good and bad things about the steel. The Good side is it holds an edge equivalent to 440A but it's softer so it seems to sharpen up faster. The bad side is it's a chromium heavy steel(17.00%) and just like any actual American made 440 Series Stainless Steels they tend to micro chip, it's more noticeable from the softness of Gerber's imported steel in harder use. A better heat treatment I could suggest that but it only means less chipping and increased sharpening time. It's low maintenance and stays sharp for a while so it's a decent steel but I wouldn't get a fixed blade in this imported steel or 440A because of the wear you can put on it.
