Picked this up about six weeks ago – the design caught my eye and BLADEHQ had a good sale price on them – I’m like – sure, why not?
Denim micarta on one side – which is really different if you have never handled a knife with that material for scales before . . .
The other side is metal – and a look at the pocket clip and frame lock . . .
Pretty good sized knife – remember folks – any time you see this background those are 1 inch squares . . .
It came out of the box sharp – it is now RFS ( Real Fucking Sharp ) – it’s 7Cr17MoV steel and the edge is holding up pretty good – I’ve used it as an everything knife as well as used it multiple times in the kitchen – and yes I washed it before using it for food processing – I know that takes a lot of fun and flavor enhancements out of it – LMAO!
Shown here with my long retired Buck 110 for a comparison . . .
Thinner and lighter than the Buck . . .
It’s amazing what 8 plus years of pocket carry will do to a knife . . .
It will be fun to see how the Gerber Flatiron holds up over several years of use/abuse – I will keep up with this every year or so just for shits and grins – and if I do pocket a different knife I will just keep the Flatiron in my pocket so we can so how it does as we go through time passages . . .
Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
