Very usefull knife
  This is an excellent knife, fits my hand very well and does what I need a knife to do. The only suggestion I would have is for Gerber to orient all the pocket clips the same way. This one is the oppostite of other knives (Gerber) I own and it's been a bit like having 2 cars with the gear shifts in the floor and on the steering colum. I'd buy another one if I lost this one so it's not a deal breaker, unless they take the clip off like they did the 22-06009.

Mr.
  I recently purchased the F.A.S.T. Folding Knife, Black Drop Point Plain Edge 31-000578 knife from Gerber and as I do like the knife, there are a couple of issues I don't care for. They are the fact that the lock is very rough to work into the release and the lock position, like there is a rough edge I am trying to work past, I have tried a little oil and also a little silicone with no luck at all. I have tried to work the lock back and forth to smooth it down, that did no good either. I do like the size and shape of the blade and it arrived nice and sharp. I would take the knife apart, but I don't want to void the warranty. Any ideas?

SM FAST Knife
  just rec'd this knife today, sorely disapointed in it's operation. The spring does not engage and until the blade is manualy pushed out at least half way. Expected more action than this and will be returning the knife. Not much better than a manual knife..,,very very overpriced

Mr
  This knife is awesome. Its fast one hand opening makes it a handy tool when you find yourself in a tuff stop and need to have your knife opened right now! The handle fits in the hand very nicely, doesn't slip when itís wet. The blade holds a very good edge and stays sharp even under very trying circumstances, and it takes an edge quickly when resharpened.

Rancher's best friend
  I live on a ranch and I have to say that this is the best knife I have ever recieved, the over all ballance is perfict, it stays sharp cutting throught hay bail strings made of fiber string, the horse roaps are sheered off without effort, I use it to trim some parts of the horses hoofs. It is a tool that never leaves my side and it is with me everywhere.
