Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will cut through bone - I know I am a veterinarian, and have just returned from a veterinary spay-neuter trip in Nicaragua. We were set up to do only spays/neuters and a few minor treatments. However, a dog was brought in - emergency - after being hit by a car. She had a severely mangled leg (bone and muscle sticking out - devitalized). Amputation was required, but we had no orthopedic instruments. I remembered my Gerber knife inside my waistband. Sterilized it quickly and as 12 Nicaraguan locals watched, I used the serrated edge to saw through the bone and complete the amputation successfully. I LOVE this knife!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good knif until trying to open a Coconut For the price, this is a great knife. Sadly, it does dull quicker than I would have hoped. If you are an avid adventurer and use your knife regularly, I would recommend going with a little bit nicer of a blade. BUT, if price is an issue, this is a great gift or "beginner" knife for those young adventurers. And, you don't have to worry about loosing it because it is so inexpensive. The knife served me well until I tried opening up a Coconut, and then it failed me and the locking mechanism broke :( So, to correct the problem I went back and bought the "Gerber Big Rock", a more manly knife capable of opening Coconuts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dependable knife - lightweight & easy to use I purchased this knife approx. one month ago, and love it! It's very lightweight, and easy to use & has great one-handed action from the thumb-stud with positive locking every time. The only constructive criticism I can think of, is that the thumb-stud extends out from both sides of the blade, and the stud on the clip-side can catch on your pocket when trying to pull the knife out of said pocket... Some people may actually like this as it may help prevent the knife from accidentally coming out/off the clip, but I prefer a smooth pull out of my pocket. UPDATE: Ground down the thumb-stud next to the clip and smoothed it out - way better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These other people don't know knives Don't listen to the other posts. I have 372 knives. This, out of the box, can shave hair. If that's not sharp enough please tell me what is. It's a test I use and have a large patch missing on my left arm from testing sharpness. Cuts everything. Was hesitant about the belt clip as this is my first but it's built well enough that the clip sits high enough and is long enough to hold fast in rough and tumble situations. It also has a very low profile. You really have to try to reach the blade through the frame. Safe enough to not mistakenly cut yourself but for little kids probably not good. It's a gerber, it's light, sharp and you can't beat a dual purpose knife. Fantastic deal at [$]. Look around...everyone else sells this type of blade for [$]+. Can't fail. Buy it and enjoy it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loving it! I bought this knife a few months back as a general do-all knife. So far I've been very happy with it! It's super sharp, a good size for all my nonspecific projects, lightweight and fairly easy to use. My only complaint would be some difficulty in closing the knife, however after owning it for a while I am getting better and I would rather have it stay open than to close without warning. I'm looking forward to keeping this knife for years to come!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Product I bought myself this knife as an early Christmas present, and after a month of good use I have a lot of likes and a few small gripes. The knife feels solid and balanced in your hand, and the frame-lock design is awesome. I like the sturdy pocket clip. The gripes: the easy-to-clean design is also easy to get dirty, and the frame design makes it difficult to slip the clip onto your pocket. It doesn't ever get caught when you pull it out of your pocket, just when you put it in. Overall, though, this knife offers great bang for your buck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 years and going stron Bought the knief 2 years ago for a trip up to the BWCA and have used it a ton since then. It has survived two trips to the BWCA, two trips to Rocky Mountain National Park and one trip to Alaska among everyday use in between. Blade requires sharpening every couple months, but I use it for everything; camping, hiking, work, and chores around the house. It's clipped in my pocket everyday! Some have complained about the thumb knobs are to big or wear out the material on pant pockets, but I've never run into that problem. Love this thing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 7 years of hiking and still in my gear I purchased my Paraframe I in 2004, and it has never failed a task. As an avid backpacker I encounter many situations requiring a stout, sturdy and versatile blade. This one is in my pocket at all times. Unlike some of the reviewers, I've never had a problem with opening or closing the blade with ease, or any nagging blade dullness. I do, however, take care of it. A drop or two of household oil at the hinge and along the blade keeps it clean and quick. And sharpness? I read someone used a "sharpening kit" -- not sure what that is. A good small whet stone worked with some oil on it keeps mine plenty sharp. It's interesting to me that this knife garners so much attention, based on the number of reviewers. Maybe drawn to it like me by the innovative, weight saving handle design. Peace.
