Designed with bold styling and a striking profile, Gerber'sContrast AO Folding Knife feels as good in the hand as it looks. Outfitted with a 3" straight-edge drop-point blade made of 7Cr17Mov stainless steel that holds a nice edge and is easy to resharpen when needed. The knife is outfitted with Gerber's proprietary Assisted Opening 2.0 mechanism to enable smooth and easy one-handed opening with just a flip of one of its dual thumb studs. For safety, the blade is held open using a reliable button lock. To disengage the lock, simply push the button and fold closed. This design not only keeps your fingers away from the blade, but it is able to be actuated even while wearing gloves and allows the blade to be closed one-handed.
The handle is made of 3Cr13 stainless steel over-wrapped in deeply textured lightweight G-10. While this combination adds to the overall styling, it serves a practical purpose of providing a secure grip, even when wet, without sacrificing strength. Jimping on the handle extends onto the spine of the blade, giving your finger a slip-resistant place to rest and allows enhanced control for precision blade work. Its ergonomically sculpted handle profile and deep finger groove ensure and even more stable grip. This knife comes complete and ready to work in convenient clamshell packaging.
