Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice tool for Trail Running I always carry a knife when running trail. On a recent trip to Alaska I was forced to leave my CRKT at home since I couldn't take it on my carry-on. So I ordered this on REI and had it shipped to the ANC store. It was smaller than i had expected but met my needs overall. I wear a running hydration pack and this knife fit well into the front sheet pocket. It did not bounce given its light weight. I used it around the camp in Denali and performed basic camp functions with it prior to race day. I now carry it in my laptop bag daily as a nice low bulk alternative to a swiss army style knife.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent knife for everyday I bought this knife almost a year ago, brought it with me to Mt. Rainer and small camping trips. I really like the knife for what it is. A light weight pocket knife with medium to light use for cutting. The blade is a little dull for my taste, the front guard is a little smaller than I anticipated, but it's very light. I some times forget that I have it with me. The only problem that I encounter with this knife is that over time the blade slowly started to get lose, I fixed that with taking it apart and put everything back together.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK knife, goofy lock, This is a nice, small knife that will last. The lock mechanism is a little hard to use and requires the user to put his/her finger right in front of the blade to close it. The mechanism reduces weight and complexity, but is not as easy to use as a standard lockback blade. The blade also was a little sub-par in its finish, especially for Gerber. The side of the blade opposite the serrations had a bit of a "lip" that should have been ground/polished off in manufacturing. I own other Gerbers and this is not as good as the rest. Good for day-to-day carrying because of the compact size, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, well designed compact knife! Bought this knife due to the small size, light weight, and design. I personally love the design. And note that it's really quite small. 3" in length; 3/8" thickness excl. clip and 4/8" w/ clip. Feels very well made and sturdy, with a tight locking mechanism. Takes quite some force to release the lock, such that if you open and close the knife 10 times your thumb will start to hurt. Be careful when closing the knife with one hand. Overall, lovely (cute?) little knife, stylish design, very well made. Small and light. Locking mechanism may be a bit too strong, but you'll get used to it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Super dull out of the box, too small I got this to use at work, for opening boxes and letters and such. It was so dull out of the package that it literally couldn't cut through paper. You can accidentally grab the blade through the handle, which would be a problem IF there were any chance of it cutting you, and opening the knife is more difficult than it should be. Not recommended at all. I returned mine and got a Benchmade Mini-Griptilian instead. Yeah, that's a lot more expensive, but you get what you pay for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed Disappointed and not impressed. Although it's a nice size for dropping in your pocket, it's a little weighty. Sort of like carrying a dollar in coins. The clip is a nice feature but the screws tend to snag on clothing. It takes two hands to open. Difficult for someone with average size fingers and darn near impossible to open with one hand. When closed the blade is protected and not capable of accidently opening. When open it has a secure lock but forget about ease of closing. Takes quite a bit of effort to close using your fingertips and nails which tend to get painful after a few times. If this was a fraction thicker, capable of being open with one hand and with a normal thumb lock, it would be perfect. I'm returning this one and getting something else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good to have I bough this knife a year ago and have used it in many situations. I took it to Mt. Whitney, Belize and on various hiking trips. I have gotten much use out of the knife and was surprised by how much it cut through. It is tricky to close, so watch your fingers. For the price, it's as good as I expected and it has been great to have on hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gerber Mini Paraframe knife I have a couple of these in Day Packs for hiking and fishing and I routinely give these as mementos to my Eagle Scouts as they achieve that rank in Scouting. For those who are prone to losing the open-frame knives, affix a lanyard through an opening and attach the end around the belt on your pants or a secure loop on your pack. Items that can fall out or fall off, eventually will! Major cutting, food prep, or cleaning are best left to larger knives with longer blades and handles. This is a very good product. I like it.

Description section says this knife is one-handed open; specs sections says it is not "one handed opening". Can you clarify with the manufacturer?
