The popular knife brand Gerber Gear has published a small presentation video on its official youtube channel, in which it presented a relatively new line of Asada budget knives based on the Flatiron model. We have already written about this series of pocket knives, which is available with two steels to choose from (7Cr17MoV, D2)..
The blade of the Asada model has a length of about 76.2 mm (64 mm cutting edge) and a thickness of up to 3.56 mm at the butt. The handle of the updated model, whose length is 114 mm, can be formed by an overlay made of Micarta, or an aluminum alloy. The blade is removed with a small flipper and fixed with a steel frame. The full length of the open knife does not exceed 190 mm, the average weight is about 133 grams.
Prices for the Gerber Asada series folding pocket knife, depending on the choice of design, start at $45. An order can be placed on the manufacturer’s website.
