The Gerber Vertebrae Fixed Blade 31-003425 is a solid minimalist fixed knife. The Vertebrae is not enhanced with any unnecessary frills. The knife is made to be used, and does so perfectly!
The handle consists of a full-tang construction. This means that the blade and the frame of the handle are made from one piece of steel on which the scales are mounted. The rubber scales are enhanced with a light texture. As such the Gerber Vertebrae feels great in hand in wet circumstances. The blade is made from 7Cr17MoV steel. The blade itself is enhanced with a rough stonewashed finish. This finish properly hides traces of use, and will still look amazing after use!
The sheath is made from FRN: fibreglass reinforced nylon. A very interesting aspect of the sheath is the elongated clip. Thanks to this clip you easily attach the Gerber Vertebrae to a bag or belt. The sheath itself contains a small threshold, it falls into the cut-out above the logo on the spine of the blade. As such you can securely click the Vertebrae into the sheath.
There are two different versions. The Vertebrae with a 6.4 cm long blade. But also the Spine, a larger version, with a 9.6 cm long blade. So if you are looking for a larger size. We have got you covered.
