The Gerber Paraframe Mini Tanto is the smaller version of the Paraframe Tanto. This compact pocket knife combines an open frame with a tanto-shaped blade. Both enhanced with a black coating. Because of the open frame the Paraframe Mini Tanto is very light in terms of weight and easy to clean. An EDC pocket knife that will hardly take up any room.
The blade on the Gerber Paraframe Mini Tanto is made from 7Cr17MoV steel. This type of steel has a black Titanium Nitride coating to protect it from rust. The blade on the Paraframe Mini Tanto is only 5.3 cm long. The open handle on the Paraframe Mini Tanto is made from stainless 3Cr13 steel. Like the blade it has a black coating.
You can open the knife using two hands with the help of the nail nick. When opened the frame lock makes sure the blade stays in place. It might take a little practice but in the end you could close the knife with one hand even though this might be a little tricky at first. The useful tip-down pocket clip enables you to attach the knife to your pocket or belt. As such you will always have it around.
