Before you know what the question is, you can have the proper response with Gerber'sAnswer F.A.S.T. SM Folding Knife. It utilizes the patented "Forward Action Spring Technology" with an internal torsion spring that pulls the blade fully open after the blade is partially deployed for virtually effortless opening. Built as an EDC knife, the 2.8" drop-point blade has a fine, straight edge to make short work of most materials. Gerber employs a reliable liner lock to hold the blade open, with a secondary safety lock that keeps the blade secure in the closed position. The Answer's anodized aluminum handle is designed to provide a secure grip, especially when punching, with an ergonomic curvature and two rear finger grooves that lock the pinky and ring-finger in place during a forward thrust.
