Smooth, Fast & Pocket-Friendly

Gerber’s New Folding Knife Belongs In Your Rotation

June 12, 2019 Briefings By

Gerber has been a top-tier name for pocket knives and multi-tools for 80-plus years — and with the release of the new Fastball folder, there’s little reason to think that will change anytime soon. The USA-made Fastball is an exceptionally well-crafted everyday carry knife that combines precision and polish — just what we’ve come to expect from Gerber. The practical design has a finger-flip opening that feels like second nature to use, made with ball bearings rather than a traditional hinge for smooth action and serious longevity. The three-inch utilitarian stainless steel Wharncliffe blade is ready to be put through the paces. And the Fastball’s handle is made from rugged aircraft-grade aluminum, available in three handsome colorways. Carry it your way with an effective three-position pocket clip, ensuring you’ll never lose track of your new favorite knife.
