I would say that was a good deal. Gerbers are awsome knifes. May I ask where you got them?

ACE is awesome. I broke one of my Gerber multitools. I was trying to torque off a bolt with the pliers. It didn't work...

I'm actually not a huge fan of their knives, it really depends on the model though(like any other company). I'm a huge fan of Buck, CRKT, and SOG when it comes to knives. Especially folders.

Gerbers are pretty good for the price but aren't first choice of knives. I prefer SOG or Cold Steel when it comes to pocket knives. Getting a Boker though for Christmas, can't wait it's the only good thing about Christmas this year.

what does the frame actually do besides make it light and look cool? you can use it as a guide i'm assuming?

Just to be light and easier to maintain. Lots of manufacturers like to cut holes in the steel to remove an ounce or so of weight. Compared to my other knives my Para was pretty light. I think I'm going to buy another one now and replace my current carry knife.

EDC = everyday carry. Actually i have been wondering about the legal implications of carrying a knife on me.....
what is legal and what is illegal?

"Your lockblade folding knife should have a thumbstud, thumb"hole", thumb "disk" or similar push-thingy, so long as the "thingy" is attached directly to the blade (versus on the grip and linked up via a gearbox of sorts). It should not have a spring that does ALL the opening (yes, the Kershaw Ken Onion series seems to be OK). And finally, the blade needs to have at least some tendency to stay closed in the pocket or whatever bias a "bias towards closure" or "detent" (discussed in more detail later in this chapter).

As long as it's got all that, and the vast majority (including all eight knives discussed at the bottom of this document) do, it cannot be "declared a gravity knife or switchblade" even if you can snap it open with relish Smile. And you can carry it concealed so long as it's concealed in the FULLY closed position, or open-carry if that's your thing (not recommended for BIG stuff, in case you happen on a town with a funky local ordinance or a really cranky cop).

There's no length limit. Seriously Smile."

Awesome, I'm gonna start bring my knife with me then. I was never sure about it. Thanks for clarifying

Any time. Might wanna just read up on the rest of it or any other sections that might pertain to you, especially the "School-carry rules" since you're a teacher.

If you happen to be carrying when you're stopped by a police officer for any reason, make sure to let him know what kind of blade you have on you and where it is on your person before he even searches you. Don't reach for anything unless he asks you to, not even your wallet. But that's a little irrelevant since I doubt you get harassed much by cops Very Happy

Gerber makes pretty nice knives. Personally I prefer Kershaw, but thats just me. I carry it with me wherever I go.

Is the gerber multi tool better than most other multi tools?, I have the folding knife from gerber and none of my other knifes come close to it.

im not sure about the multitool. i tested the pliers out a bit, im worried if i grip it too tight it the handles will invert and break the pliers (doesn't feel sturdy)

the knife is knife, the multitool is soso, lets just say gerber is better known for their actual knives than multi tools

I have only a few knives, but for some reason i want to buy more. They seem like something cool to collect, so far i own just these
Gerber Paraframe
S&W 24-7

all folding knives. but so far the gerber far exceeds my old S&W.

I really want a fixed blade. I think those are just darn sexy Very Happy

I use to collect knives, now though i only get them for practical reasons. For a fixed blade you should get a Ka-Bar Marine fighting knife. Personally no knife collection is complete without one.

I have definitely been eyeing those. I went on Camp Pendleton. They had one for sale for like 129.99 Very Happy Razz I'll just get one from Reactgear.com for 70 bucks~
