As Shot Show kicks off, Gerber has released their whole 2018 lineup for dealers and fans alike. There are tons of different knives and tools in this lineup, and it’s really too much to cover in one article. We focused on a sampling of five new Gerber products in the lineup, but if you want to see them all, you can find those here.  Let’s get started.

Gerber Flatrion
Item Number: G1494 Price: $34.99

The Gerber Flatiron puts the power of a small cleaver in hand while maintaining the low profile of a pocket knife. It’s no secret that the folding cleaver’s popularity has been on the rise over the past few years. This is due to their thicker spine and inherit strength that’s not found in run-of-the-mill pocket knives. The large 3.8-inch blade provides plenty of cutting power and the framelock mechanism makes sure that your knife stays locked open while in use. When you’re done cutting, the blade folds into a nearly 4.7″ handle that easily fits into your pocket. The Gerber Flatrion is the perfect balance of cutting power and portability.

Gerber Flatrion Details:
  • 7Cr17MoV Stainless steel blade
  • Cleaver style blade
  • Aluminum handle
  • Frame lock mechanism
  • Tip-Down Pocket clip
  • 3.8″ Blade length
  • 8.5″ Overall length

The Gerber Kettlebell folder is a new small and easily concealable knife. This EDC is big enough for daily tasks while being low profile enough to spare your pocket space. This model features a 3.8″ 7Cr17MoV stainless steel blade. It’s machined aluminum handle is sage green and offers a good balance of grip and aesthetics. The handle is a bit small, so Gerber added a finger choil for extra grip when trying to control your cuts. If you’re looking for a small EDC knife, this may be it.

Gerber Pack Hatchet
Item Number: G3484 Price: $29.99

The Gerber Pack Hatchet is a camping and hiking tool that is designed to be slim and compact. This hatchet is designed to be packed or hung on a belt without taking up too much space. Usually to save space it’s at the cost of features or effective use, however that isn’t the case with the Pack Hatchet. The 3.5″ axe head is plenty for hiking or basic camp needs, and its full tang design provides plenty of strength. One favorable design feature is the rubber over-mold handle with choke-up ergonomics built in. The ergonomics are small finger grooves machined into the handle that provide extra grip and maximize your control. Other features include a lanyard hole and an exposed tang that just sweeten the deal. You would be hard pressed to find a better axe than the Gerber Pack Hatchet for the money.

Gerber Pack Hatchet Details:
  • Stainless steel axe head
  • Rubberized over-mold handle
  • Full tang design
  • Protective black finish
  • 3.5″ Axe head
  • 9.46″ Overall
