A smart mashup of two of Gerber's most popular, celebrated designs, the Airlift fuses the durable steel frame of the Paraframe with the streamlined blade and handle design of the RipStop. The result is an everyday carry knife that is light in the pocket, yet extraordinarily resilient, even after years of vigorous use in challenging conditions. It boasts a razor sharp 2 4/5" 5Cr15MoV steel blade with a versatile clip point profile. Combine this with the sturdy, no-frills, black steel frame, and the Airlift is more than capable of tackling even the toughest day to day cutting jobs and then some. Dual thumbstuds grant easy, one handed access to the blade, and the frame lock makes it equally painless to close. A lanyard hole and pocket clip provide two handy transport options. Since it's from the American engineering experts at Gerber, you can rest easy knowing the Airlift will be with you for the long haul, in all conditions and through any challenge.
