Sometimes, after just a quick look at a new knife, it’s destined to find its way into your pocket. The budget friendly Gerber Jukebox is geared toward everyday use but it has the style of an old knife or straight razor you’d find in a barbershop. Seth Jaramus from Gerber said “At first glance, it’s a throwback to the kind of knife you’d find back in the day.” That’s true for sure, but it’s also easy to see some nice modern updates.
The Jukebox has a 2.7” 7Cr17MoV sheepsfoot blade that manually opens with a front flipper, or what Gerber calls an “Extended Finger Flipper Tang.” Just press your thumb against it and roll the blade on its pivot until it locks in place with a linerlock. It’s simple and easy enough to operate with one hand.
To complete the boxy design, the Jukebox features acrylic handle scales available in tortoiseshell or dark marble colors. That adds even further to its old-school appearance. It’s 3.87″ closed and weighs about 3.7 ounces. Finally, as a most modern of touches, it has a tip-down, right carry pocket clip.
