Gear Review #2 - Gerber Mini Paraframe

What a great knife. Small, lightweight, sharp and it just gets the job done. This knife is my Every Day Carry knife (EDC). You will very, very rarely find me without this knife clipped on my pocket.

It comes in two versions, fine edge and serrated edge. I chose the fine edge. The best thing about this knife is its only about $12.

The second best thing is it just looks cool.

Materials -

Both the 2-1/4" blade and frame are made from stainless steel. I have had mine for about 8 months and use it daily (cause its my EDC knife) and it still looks new. The blade holds an edge very well also.

The frame is light weight, due to all the openings in the handle. This knife weighs in at just 1.4 oz. You can't even tell its hanging on your pocket.

Using the Knife -

First off I will say this one of the best pocket clips in a small knife. Not to tight or too lose it allows you to quickly pull the knife out of your pocket. Second it opens very easily with one hand, which is important for a EDC knife. I have big hands and this knife although small is very comfortable to use.

Conclusion -
BUY THIS. Honestly for a little more than 10 bucks how can you not buy it. If you are in the market for a small knife this is it. I had a buck knife of similar size prior to this one and the gerber just blows it out of the water. Way to go Gerber.
