Like the swing weight of an old baseball bat, the feel of an evenly balanced knife in your grip adds to its performance. The Gerber Paraframe II is such a knife. This large, folding tactical knife features a skeletonized cast metal handle that complements its full-size tanto-style blade, and is designed to meet the needs of law enforcement personnel on the job.
Positive HandlingIn the line of duty, an everyday carry knife needs to offer more than just a reliable edge and a stealth finish. Like a good pair of duty boots, it needs to rise to the rigors of daily use, offering comfortable grip, blade versatility and all-around durability. The Paraframe II delivers: Rounded handle edges fit comfortably in your hand, while the partially serrated 3.5-inch carbon steel blade can do it all from sawing through stubborn materials to offering a fine point that's ready to rise to a critical occasion.

In 1939 Joseph Gerber hired a local knife maker to build 25 sets of kitchen cutlery to be given as Christmas gifts. The knives were so popular that Joseph Gerber left his advertising agency to start Gerber Legendary Blades®. The unique style and high quality manufacturing of Gerber cutlery soon developed wide spread acclaim. In fact, Gerber Legendary Blades are the only cutlery on display in New York�?s famous Museum of Modern Art.
From very early on, Gerber collaborated with top knife designers, setting a standard of quality for everyone else to follow. Renowned designers such as Al Mar, Bob Loveless, Paul Poehlmann, 'Blackie' Collins, William Harsey Jr. and Ernest Emerson have all designed knives for Gerber. In 2002 this tradition continued as Gerber released the Silver Trident�?, designed by Chief James 'Patches' Watson (U.S.N. Ret.) and Bill Harsey Jr.
Today, Gerber continues to design and manufacture unique, high quality outdoor recreation products. In 2003 we are proud to introduce the next generation of multi-tools: the Recoil�? Auto-Plier. By constantly utilizing new technology and innovative design to develop new products, Gerber continues to be an industry leader.
