The day after the announcement of the Gator Premium Fixed, knife brand Gerber Gear introduced new folding models from the same line. Gator Premium Folder knives will also initially be available in two blade styles, a straight Clip Point blade and a dedicated Gut Hook skinning variant. Knives made using similar materials.
The polished Gator Premium Folder blade is made using CPM S30V stainless steel, the hardness of the steel is stated at 58-60 HRC. The handle of the knife is formed by steel pritiny, elements of the Back-Lock type lock and formed slips of nylon reinforced with fiberglass and an additional outer layer of textured rubber (Gator Grip).
The overall dimensions of the new Gator Premium Folder Clip Point and Gator Premium Folder Gut Hook knives are fully inherited from the fixed blade models, the full length of the open knives is 229 mm and the blade length is at least 102 mm. The total weight of folding knives, taking into account the weight of the leather sheath, does not exceed the declared 295 grams.
The Gator Premium Folder will be available at the same time as the fixed blade models, with MSRPs of $146 and $121 for the new knives.
