PORTLAND, OREGON (June 26, 2018) – Gerber, leading the industry in knives, tools and equipment for over 75 years, announces the introduction of a brand-new pocket folding knife – the FlatIron. Taking design cues from the custom knife building community, the knife represents the latest in blade design and everyday carry aesthetic.
This pocket knife is built for utility with a cleaver blade in a folding application. The FlatIron features a robust 3.6 inch cleaver blade, a textured G-10 composite handle, and a sturdy frame lock design. The reverse curvature of the knife’s spine keeps knuckles away from the cutting surface, allowing the user to cut and chop with precision.
As an everyday carry knife, the FlatIron meets the demands of the day and looks sharp doing it. The dependable blade shape is easy to operate with one hand and simple to stow when not in use. Arguably the most prominent feature, the cleaver blade is bold and trend forward. The sizable thumb-hole opening allows for smooth one-hand engagement while operating. A large finger choil ensures solid hand placement for control when choking up. The pocket clip is specifically designed for low-profile carry that doesn’t draw attention.
