Gerber Applegate-Fairbairn Covert FAST 3.7" Assisted Combo Edge Blade
This purchase replaced my previous EDC knife. I haven't been disappointed. It is easy to carry and deploy. The locking mechanism is good, but could be stronger. I use this knife a lot to cut rope and twine and the extremely sharp blade makes the task very easy. I also like the handle feel and weight of the knife. I would imagine, should the need ever arise, that this knife would be a devastating self-defense weapon.

This is my 3rd purchase of a EOC Gerber' The only complaint I can voice is it does'nt hold an edge very well> Not sharp right out of the box, either! The quality is very good, but that is not unusual for "GERBER" the only "draw--back is the edge retention, My Kershaws are superior in the edge-retention! Thanks for your query! I have many EDC all Knife Center Products Which I would gladly recommend to my fellow "LEO" brothers! Respectfully, SGT. M. Davis-Simpson Retired
