this is a great knife! its small and easy to use. it also fits right in your pocket or on your belt with its clip. the frist few times you use it its a tiny bit sticky, but other that its a perfect knife

This is a sharp little pocket that fit my needs. I have other gerber knives and multi tools.

This knife appears to have a serrated blade, but does not. It is fairly easy to open, but does not fall open. A portion of the handle snaps behind the blade when opened to lock it opened,which is a good feature. The same portion of the blade which locks it into place needs to be moved to close it, and that can be a task,but worth the foort to have a locking blade .The blade is Sharp! - Watch out. I have not yet had to sharpen it, and am pretty sure that day is a ways down the line. It's a good knife to have for everyday use and "for use up north/outdoors". I'd buy it again if I were in the market for a knife, and rate it higher than most knives in this price range. . .

I am a big fan of small, lock-blade pocket knives. You'll frequently find me with one in my pocket. I find a small knife usually does everything a big knife does - plus I'm far more likely to have it with me when I need it. Locking blades are just far safer than nonlocking blades. Let's face it - we often use knives for stuff we probably shouldn't, and the ability to keep that blade from snapping shut on our fingers is invaluable.
In this category, the small Gerber Paraframe is a great choice. It comes out of the package quite sharp, holds an edge well, and resharpens readily. It is reasonably light. The pocket clip adds some bulk if just carried around in a pants pocket, but it is handy if you want to clip it to a strap or the edge of a pocket to keep it handy or prevent loss in the field. (The clip is removeable, but I've never done so.) For the price, it's nearly unbeatable. I've owned several - and when I lose one I don't panic. This last purchase is the plain blade. I've also owned the partially serrated, which is handy for hacking through cordage. Both are good, can't say I prefer one over the other. Opening. locking, and unlocking the blade are easy and straightforward.
While I have had other knivss I might like a bit better (e.g. the now discontinued nylon handled Gerber Microlight), this is among my favs and a terrific value.
