Blade Show West 18 – Gerber Flatiron

Saturday, October 6th, 2018

I really like the Flatiron’s cleaver design. It features a 3.6″ blade paired with a textured G-10 composite handle. Well, I guess I should clarify. The scale on the side with the lock, is aluminum. The other one is G10.

You’ll notice the extra plate beside the lock. That’s to keep a tight grip from indexing the lock during opening and slowing it preventing a complete opening to full lock.

Details:
? Full length: 8.5″
? Blade length: 3.8″
? Blade steel: 7Cr17MoV
? Cleaver style, satin finish blade
? Thumb hole for one-hand opening
? G-10 composite handle scales
? Frame lock
? Pocket clip

The other key component is the crystalline carbide which results in very long lasting edge holding properties requiring less touch ups over a longer period of usability. The Element Alpha-HD and Bravo-HD will be available on 17SEP18. Made in the USA.

The Element Alpha-HD and Bravo-HD will be offered in 4 colors of 550 paracord or 3mm ALSE type cord respectively. Color matched kydex sheaths are also included.

“Terrain 365 is the brainchild of Michael Vagnino (ABS Master Bladesmith) and Patrick Ma (of Prometheus Design Werx). Together they founded this new brand out of their mutual interests in outdoor knives – tools and research into unique alloys that performed in any natural environment without rusting, pitting and requiring far less to no maintenance. Any user who spends a great deal of time in the field can appreciate at the performance capabilities of the alloys being used in the Terrain 365 knives. While dendritic cobalt alloys such as their Terravantium™ are still somewhat of a rarity, both Michael and Patrick hope to introduce more and more users to this high performance material with their bladeware. From backpackers, overlanders, expedition members, divers, hunters, river runners, and for any avid outdoors person, the Terrain 365 line of goods will serve them well across all these uses-cases and environments. At least 2 other models are currently in development and more to follow.”

Terrain 365™ launches both these knives and website at 3:00pm Pacific Time, Sept 17, 2018.
