Gerber Decree, 3.7" S30V ComboEdge Blade, Rubber Over-Molded GFN Handle
According to famed writer Malcolm Gladwell, it takes 10,000 hours of practice and perseverance to become an expert at something. With more than four decades of experience designing tactical folders, Gerber puts that theory into practice with the finely tuned Decree.
The Gerber Decree combines all the elements that make a superior everyday carry into a compact and reliable flipper.
It all starts with the blade. The blade design is a cross between a tanto blade and a drop point, excelling at both piercing and slicing. A partially serrated edge gives the knife even more functionality.
But the best part is the steel. Using premium S30V stainless steel, the black ceramic-coated blade holds an edge like nobody's business and will tackle anything you throw at it. It springs open using a flipper mechanism or you can have a more controlled opening with the thumb studs.
The handle is simple but effective. Thanks to the rubberized diamond texture, its grip feels solid in hand. Even if you're having a bad day and the environment is cold, wet, and stacked against you, the Decree won't leave your hand without your consent.
Rounding out the knife is a one-position, tip-up carry pocket clip and a tempered steel glass breaker in the pommel.
With those countless hours of blood and sweat behind it, this American-made folder is in it for the long haul.

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.
