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.
Rated4out of5bymvg08fromGerber ContrastI just bought this knife. When I took it out of the package, I tried to open it. The thumbstuds are pretty close to the handle, so it's a bit difficult opening the knife. It has a great locking mechanism, which will make it very difficult for the blade to slip when in use. I love the pocket clip and lanyard hole (though the pocket clip seems very tight). This is an every day knife for me, but it does feel a little bit heavy for a small knife. It came with a razor-sharp blade and I would definitely recommend it, as I believe no knife can be perfect. It's a nice, small knife.

Rated5out of5bywobblesfromPleasantly surprised, love itI bought this in 2012 with an REI dividend and am very happy with it. Its part of my Every-Day-Carry (EDC). I was initially hesitant to get a Gerber brand knife but so far it was has been very solid and reliable. Would definitely recommend. It doesn't just feel good in the hand, but it looks nice too.

Rated4out of5byFaylconfromGood KnifeThe blade opens easily with a flick of the thumb (not quite as smooth as my Benchmade, but close), the blade is sharp, and locking mechanism solid. Unlocking the blade is a little different than other folders I've used, but it is safer. You have to make an effort to press the release, making it almost impossible for it to close by mistake during use. Overall, a solid knife at a good price.
