    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Gerber Fast Draw Serrated Locking Knife is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite knife! I have used this knife for years without a single problem. It is the perfect size, has a comfortable grip, and the spring loading mechanism makes it super easy to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Was looking for a slim light weight carry knife and this one fit the bill perfectly! The fact that the price is really reasonable for the quality is a nice benefit. Carries so comfortably that more then once I have forgotten it in my pocket and it made it to the clothes hamper with my jeans before I realized I didn't have it. If you are looking for an easy to one hand open knife that is easy to carry, keeps an excellent edge and is strong and durable then this is it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the knife, but... I use this knife as my every-day edged tool - I carry it habitually and have found it to be handy across a wide range of conventional applications. I particularly like the spring assist - I am middle aged, and I am beginning to get a little stiff in the hands, so the spring-assist really helps with one-handed opening. I am on my second knife. I bought the Gerber name, thinking that any product they made would be as rugged and reliable as all of their other products. However, within a few months the spring and locking mechanisms broke, rendering the knife useless at best and a hazard to your fingers at worst. Since I had opened and closed the knife perhaps 500,000 fewer times than I might have reasonably expected, I have to assume (or want to assume) that the problem was with the steel of the spring they used - a one-off flaw rather than a design weakness. REI replaced the knife with no fuss, making the decision to get the same knife again that much easier. I have had Knife2, The Sequel for about a month now - no problems so far - but I confess that I now find myself concerned about the apparent flimsiness of the lock switch - it is sort of loose and just feels dinky when I slide it back and forth - I worry about whether it is rugged enough for the long term. If this knife doesn't last I'll have to go with a different product, but there are none out there that I can find that combine all of the features that I like in this one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Two in the far! My son brought this knife home and I had to have one! Smooth opening, fits your hand well and you can hold it firmly while you open it. I use it daily and it is my "go to" pocket knife. I've only had it about a month so I can't comment on durability yet but the Gerber quality is very much there!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Part of my daily apparel!!! I am not considered dressed for the day without my pocket knife. If I get downstairs and realize that I don't have it, I turn around and go right back up to get it. Never leave the house without it, or even go outside without it. I use it for everything from cutting boxes, twine and other things in the garden including vines and veggies, to cutting fruit when I am on a picnic. Totally the best knife I have ever had - probably would never consider having choosing a different one. Absolutely satisfied with Gerber, and love their warranty. I had my clip bend and crack once, and they simply sent me a brand new one. All I had to do was screw it on. LOVING IT!!!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good handy knife! I've always been a fan of Gerber pocket tools and knives. A previous purchase of a Gerber knife (different model) left me unhappy when all the screws came un-done. I shouldn't have to reassemble a product to make it usable. I bought this knife as a replacement, and it's much better than the previous knife. The spring assist works like a champ, it's held together with no additional help from me, and the blade stays nice and sharp. Overall, a very good knife.
