I was sad to see this was made in China. I thought about sending it back but needed it for work. I'll use it until I have time to replace it with an American made knife. I doubt I'll buy a knife on-line again.

I've owned other Gerbers and have owned this one for about a month. I carry it every day. It's a great knife with great blade steel that allows a low angled edge when sharpening. My only problem is that the blade binds enough to make opening with the F.A.S.T. mechanism difficult. It's not too bad, but I'm hoping it will become easier with use. Otherwise it's a perfect daily carry.
Handy every day pocket knife. Works great at home and at work. The fast assist works great.
I carry this thing every day but sunday and it does everything I ask it to. I try not to open it in view of some as it is a bit intimidating. If you stop the blade and open it slowly it is not bad. I just love the heck out of it.
Good sized blade and razor sharp. Awkward pocket clip would be nice if it were a user option to install as it gets in the way when opening left-handed. Blade lock has a mind of its own and likes to hang up but if you're careful no prob. But this blades is pegged for self-defense so kind of defeats the purose. I like it anyway!
from central ny.
the slide button for the fast assist drags badly and i'm just not impressed with it's operation. i have 4 other gerber knives and i love them, but i will not buy another fast assist because it is not.
from veneta, or.
I have been a Gerber fan for many years and own many of their products. I recently tried their fast draw plain edge 22-07162. I love the fact that it is truly a one hand knife. The fast open function works very well and is really convenient. My only critique seems to be that the lock /release button seems to stick occasionally and won,t open on first try. In all fairness, it may be that the knife is new and must be broken in a bit. other that that I am really pleased.
from Northern georgia area.
Just plain Rob
I own this knife for some time now and wanted to say it is the best overall knife I have owned not only for the functionality of it but the blade sharpens to razor sharp and holds. Overall it's a great knife for any duty in my opinion.
