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
