Folding US-Assist S30V was not the only novelty of August from the brand Gerber Gear, the other day the company introduced a new relatively small knife called The Commuter, which also became part of a collection of pocket knives for everyday use. The knife was created under the impression of the LST and US1 models, but has a slightly larger overall dimensions, weight and a longer blade..
Just like the base models, the blade of the Gerber The Commuter uses the well-known 420HC carbon steel, which is known for its high anti-corrosion properties, medium strength and wear resistance, and relatively easy processing. The hardness of steel is declared within 54-56 units on the HRC scale.
The handle of the Gerber The Commuter Folding Knife consists of steel liners that make up the Lock-back lock, as well as two-tone glass fiber reinforced nylon grips with the addition of anti-slip rubber inserts. The design of the handle does not include a clip, there is only a small hole for a lanyard.
The length of the open knife does not exceed 183 mm, the length of the blade is slightly more than 76 mm, the thickness of the blade on the butt and the weight of the knife itself has not yet been specified. Free sales of new items have already started through the official online store, Gerber The Commuter is estimated by the manufacturer at 33 US dollars.
