Some of the Best Folding Knives Around are Gerber
There's a reason knife users consider Gerber the best folding knives you can buy. In fact, there are several of them. Quality, variety, craftsmanship, design and the legendary Gerber warranty, along with many other factors work together to make Gerber the best folding knives you can buy... hands down.
Quality is the most notable aspect of what makes Gerber the best folding knives you can buy. The Gerber quality stands head and shoulders above other knife makers. In fact, that quality, which is evident in our classic knives like the Gerber Applegate Covert or the Gerber Gator, is what gives Gerber Legendary Blades its top-notch reputation. When folks buy Gerber knives and gear, they know they're getting the best. It's as simple as that.
A Variety to Choose From
In addition to the quality of Gerber knives is the sheer variety available. Another reason these are considered the best folding knives you can buy. Choose from various blade styles, handle materials, blade steel, overall length, open blade length, even sheath styles. The ability to find a Gerber knife to fit every need is another reason people say Gerber makes the best folding knives you can find.
Top of the Line
The Gerber craftsmanship seldom needs description. That's because even folks who prefer another brand of knife know Gerber is top of the line. (Apparently, there's no accounting for the taste of some folks.) At any rate, Gerber's craftsmanship should probably have been listed first when it comes to what makes the best folding knives. All the awards won over the years attest to this fact.
Designed by the Pro's
And craftsmanship ties closely to design. Professional knife design is a competitive field. Designing the best folding knives may seem like a hit or miss scenario, but you can bet that Gerber knife designers know their business. There's nothing left to chance when knives are designed by people like Butch Vallotton, creator of FAST assisted opening knives; Michael Walker, linerlock designer; or the more commonly known knife designers as Jeff Freeman or Colonel Rex Applegate.
Of course, when it comes to the best folding knives, you can't leave out what the Gerber limited lifetime warranty brings to the table. Sure, you might say that if a knife is truly one of the best folding knives you can buy you wouldn't need the warranty. But that's not the case. It's because Gerber knows that they make the best folding knives available that they can offer such a guarantee without fear of losing their shirts, or their sheaths, as the case may be.
There are a number of factors that work together to create the best folding knives you can buy. But one thing's for certain. Any knife categorized as one of the best folding knives you can buy is going to have the name "Gerber" branded on the blade. It's just that easy.
