The Gerber Contrast Assisted Opening (AO) Folding Knife was 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. The matte black finish on the handle and the blade gives the Contrast a low profile, tactical look that hides its utilitarian nature inside.
At 3.3 ounces, the Contrast won’t weigh you down, and its 3-inch blade means it can work smoothly around big jobs. The Assisted Opening 2.0 mechanism delivers reliable, one-handed deployment, and the thumb Plunge Lock on the handle offers smooth release when closing, keeping your fingers away from the blade’s path. A removable pocket clip lets you carry the Contrast easily in your pocket, or secure it to a bag for fast access. Thread the cordage of your choice through the lanyard hole for added security and quick location on the go. Backed by Gerber’s Lifetime Warranty
