View Full Version : Gerber Paraframe I Fine Edge
I had been looking around for what knife to get. I even posted a poll on here, and there are all sorts of knives out there! I ended up going with the Gerber Paraframe I with a fine edge. There are still other knives that I want to get and try out. I wanted to (and will) try the Griptillian as well as the Mora fixed blade.I will also be looking into some of the mini multitools.
A few reasons I went with this knife for now is that I found them for $17 at Wal-Mart, and it is a good length knife that only weighs in at 2.6 oz. So far it seems to be a pretty solid knife, with a few things that needs worked in. Anyway, I wrote a review of it on my blog, here:
I go for the smaller Gerber Mini Paraframe at only 1.7 ounces. At my age, I need every ounce of weight reduction I can get.
That looks like a pretty nice blade. I enjoyed your review and for the weight/blade length, I think it's a good solid choice. I may pick one up to add to the collection.:)
The benchmade griptilian is also a really sweet blade and since you seem to be in the market let me suggest a couple more...:D
Besides benchmade, sog is probably my favorite knife maker. Here's a couple of my favorites that I own.
flash 1 (http://sogknives.com/store/FSA-7.html) Really light at 1.3 ounces with sufficient blade length at 2.5 inches. Plus, no worries about it coming out when you want it to.;)
flash 2 (http://sogknives.com/store/FSA-8.html) The flash one's bigger brother at 3.1 ounces and 3.5 inch blade.
Then there's this one.Aegis (http://sogknives.com/store/AE-02.html) Same specs as the flash 2 but IMO a cleaner, meaner look. I like it a little better than the flash.
Anyway, just some eye candy for your viewing enjoyment. I highly recommend any of those I listed if you ever get the urge to grow your collection.
Thanks for checking out my blog. And thanks for the suggestions. Those are some nice looking knives. I was just looking at some of the Kershaw knives. They look like some pretty nice blades too!
