Image complements of Gerber
The problem with a piece of equipment that does exactly what it is supposed to, and does it well is that it leaves reviewers like me with very little to say. And for me to be at a loss for words it a rare event indeed.

Despite promising more pictures I am not having too much luck taking really cool pictures of FliCK. It is a bit more more difficult than I imagined to pull a hook out of a fish’s mouth while holding a multi-tool, camera, and fish, but never fear, I am still trying.

Gerber Paraframe 1 closed
The Gerber Paraframe 1
features a 3 in clip point blade made of high grade surgical stainless steel. In fact, the whole knife is made of stainless steel. I am testing the fine edge but it is also available in a serrated edge. The blade is made of 400 Series stainless steel and the handle is cut from 314 grade stainless steel. I say cut because the handle has portions removed to reduce weight. The knife weighs only 2.6 oz which is light for a 3 inch folding knife.
The Paraframe 1 features a unique locking mechanism called the Frame Lock (not to be confused with a Liner Lock). Other features are the dual thumb studs for easy opening with either hand and a pocket clip. The pocket clip is not reversible but it is very sturdy. In fact the whole knife is very sturdy.
