Gerber Gear’s collection of utility fixed blade knives has recently been expanded with the Gerber Principle series of small knives, which were first introduced last year. Among the key advantages of the new knives, the manufacturer notes the small and convenient size and weight of the product, the classic blade geometry, such as Puukko, as well as the convenient shape of the handle, which has anti-slip properties and allows you to comfortably perform work of varying accuracy for a long time..
The Gerber Principle series utility knives feature a durable full-tail blade made of 3.2mm 420HC stainless steel, which is claimed to have a hardness of 57 HRC. The handle of the new knives is made mainly of reinforced polymer, which is additionally rubberized on the outside to create support for the necessary anti-slip properties of the model. There is no anti-slip coating on the front of the handle, which is caused by the design of the scabbard lock.
The total length of the novelty reaches exactly 190 mm, the length of the handle is almost 108 mm, the thickness of the handle does not exceed 17 mm, the total length of the blade itself is about 79 mm, the maximum thickness of the blade on the butt is 3.2 mm. The weight of the new knife, excluding the weight of the elements of the suspension system, borders on the mark of 105 grams. The profiled scabbard is made of reinforced polymer and provides a universal fastening for vertical and horizontal wear, both on a trouser belt and on a MOLLE type platform system.
At this stage, the Gerber Principle series knives are offered in two handle designs (Black, Coyote Brown) with a suggested retail price of $60 per set. It is possible to place an order both on the manufacturer’s website and through the official showcase on amazon.
