I am a charter boat captain and have owned my Gerber 800 for about 15 years. Quite simply the best I have ever owned. The company stands behind their product line better than any company I have dealt with ever. The sheath just wore out after many years and when I called customer care it was replaced free of charge. Way to go Gerber! Capt. Walter Egger, Old Town, Florida

Ive had this knife for a little under a month and it is awesomen the fit and finish is adequate in my opinion. It opens very smoothly and locks up tighter than my delica 4. Im very impressed, the 8cr13mov holds its edge quite well, and is also very easy to sharpen. Ive used the delica 4 for a long time and this one is just as good in my opinion just the vg10 will hold its edge for about an extra day of regular use. Its an incredible value.

This knife was bought because I had a bass pro shops gift card I went to the knife counter and was look at knives and this one simply felt the best in my hand. I was willing to buy whichever knife I liked best that day I had completely ignored pricing. Not only did it feel the best but I was also able to get one with the carbon scale which I love the carbon is a beautiful weave. (Coming from a racing background I have seen many types of carbon and this was a very aesthetically pleasing weave.)
Moving on the how the knife functions out of the box the knife was not razor sharp but it had no issue cutting paper, tape, and other commonly cut items. The part that stuck out the most to me with the performance of the blade was that while I was cutting it felt exceptional in my hand. The weighting of the knife feels nearly perfect which allows it to be easily controlled. Then while it is being carried it just disappears in your pocket often making the user feel like the knife is not even there. This knife had been my EDC for the past few months but after recently getting a XM-18 this knife has been losing most of its pocket time.
