Great little knife
This is a fun knife that workes perfectly. The lines of the knife gives you that WWII dagger feel. The blade is strong, lock up and release are better than expected. Just buy one!

Great little knife
Quick to open. Very sharp as always be careful. Clip is very handy so there is less bulges in your pockets.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type
Cons: Blade Sharpness, None
Awesome Product!
Initially, I thought its size would be too small; actually its size makes it one of the easiest knives to use. It's not cumbersome or heavy. The action is smooth and balanced. The controls are "one thumb action". I love this thing. Negatives? I had to sharpen it and I would prefer a plain blade.

What happened here ?
Sargeant D, I don't know where you got your knife, but I got all Fairbairn - Applegate knives and they are all quality, and I'm no teenager .. I'd say what you got is a cheap Chinese imitation ... Gerber is not the most expensive of knives but the price and quality is every time very good ... I could shave with all of mine and they are easy to maintain sharp ... You got gypped ... check the real thing ...

Excellent, High Quality
I love my Gerber Applegate-Fairbairn Mini. I also have the larger version but brother if you want something that's there when you need it and not in the way when you don't...this is it!

Junk
I bought this knife from another vendor about a year ago and sent it back. It IS Chinese made no matter what Gerber lists as the origin. The knife I purchased rubbed the liners (because the blade was severely off center), the blade was dull, the anodizing on the handle was scratchy and missing in some spots. I contacted Gerber and reported the crap they sold me and they never even acknowledged the call. Save your money, buy the manual folder or skip Gerber altogether, they are lagging behind in quality control and/or importing junk from China.
