Gerber knows from experience how you see things says a lot about what you’ll carry in your pocket. The Gerber Contrast’s bold lines and sculpted shape are visually striking, but the real statement comes from how it feels it your hand. It deals with small cutting tasks and utility work with ease, and the combination of super light, deeply textured G-10 and steel in the body means it stays put now matter how wet the conditions get, finding the deft balance point between ultra light and sturdy. Already popular as a rugged daily carry knife, this evolution of the Contrast includes the advanced Assisted Opening 2.0 mechanism, for fast, one-handed deployment of the drop point blade—no need to stop what you’re doing just get your knife open and in hand.
STYLE WITH PURPOSE
The Contrast’s looks set it apart, but every part plays its role. Designed to perform when needed, and then sit comfortably at the ready when not, every curve of the knife is considered. The G-10 handle creates a super light body that’s impervious to rust and corrosion, resists temperature change, and offers positive grip even when wet. Paired with stainless steel, the body is tough enough to withstand everything from light-duty shop work to heavy-duty outdoor tasks. A matte black finish on both the handle and blade gives the Contrast a low profile, tactical look that hides its utilitarian nature inside.
DETAILS MAKE A DIFFERENCE
You shouldn't have to think about your knife, except when you need it. At 3.3 ounces, the Contrast won’t weight you down, and the 3-inch blade means it can work smoothly around big jobs, with a serrated section for dealing with rope and twine. The Assisted Opening 2.0 mechanism delivers reliable, one-handed deployment, every time, and the thumb Plunge Lock on the handle offers easy release when closing, keeping your fingers out of the blade’s path.
GOES WHEREVER YOU DO
A removable pocket clip lets you carry it in your pocket, or secure it to a bag for quick access. Thread the cordage of your choice through the lanyard hole for added security and easy location on the go.
