A week after the announcement of the Sharkbelly folding knife, Gerber Gear has launched another series of everyday pocket knives called Pocket Square. At the moment, in the series, which is produced in the United States, there are already two models, which differ only in the materials of the overlays on the handle. The novelties are characterized by the manufacturer as compact, lightweight and minimalist knives for every day, which are made in a modern style..
For the manufacture of the Drop-Point blade, in the Gerber Pocket Square models, Chinese 7Cr17MoV stainless steel is used, the hardness of which is declared within 55-58 units on the HRC scale. To form a minimalistic and functional lining, steel liners are used, which on the outside can be supplemented with both brushed aluminum linings and linings made of completely black fiberglass reinforced nylon.
To extract a relatively small blade, a wide peg is provided, which is located on both sides of the blade. The blade is fixed with a classic Liner-Lock lock. Regardless of the choice of handle version, the overall dimensions of the knives are exactly the same. The full length of the open knife is a little more than 171 mm, the length of the folded knife is at least 95 mm, the length of the blade itself is slightly more than 76 mm. The weight of the knives, unfortunately, is not specified.
Folding pocket knives of the Gerber Pocket Square series are already available for order through the official website of the manufacturer. The aluminum version is priced at $37, while the reinforced polymer version costs $31, excluding shipping.
