Today, Gerber announced the release of the brand new Gerber US-Assist assisted opening folding knife. Gerber tells us that the US-Assist features “Gerber’s smoothest, most consistent deployment to date. Including B.O.S.S. Tech™, it features a ball-bearing system to reduce friction & provide stable performance for the long haul. Intuitively designed and painstakingly tested, the US-Assist is the next generation of the everyday pocket knife. Designed to last over 10,000 cycles.”
The specialty stonewashed finish of the modified drop point blade has a timeless aesthetic, and because it’s made of premium CPM S30V steel, it will hold an edge, resist corrosion, and stand up to very tough every day use.
The Gerber US-Assist also features a scratch-resistant, removable pocket clip, which allows the knife to be carried tip up or tip down and won’t cause any damage.
The Gerber US-Assist employs B.O.S.S. Technology (Balls of Stainless Steel), which uses stainless steel balls to reduce friction for seamless opening. A cage system keeps the stainless steel balls contained for stable performance over time.
