When you’re in the market for high-performance everyday knife, the choices can get pricey—you get what you pay for after all. But thanks to efforts from companies like Gerber, you get American-made quality without the premium price tag. The Fastball is Gerber’s first swing at a speedy, compact flipper. It’s a sleek slicer that looks even better in its new stealthy black oxide colorway. With its versatile wharncliffe blade and a no-nonsense build, it’s a workhorse knife that fits like a glove for EDC.

Just a nudge on the finger flipper and the blade flies out on Gerber’s patented B.O.S.S. Tech ball bearing system, its stainless steel ball bearings reducing friction and the cage system allowing stable performance over time. A modified wharncliffe blade (useful for both precision cuts and larger cutting tasks) at the 3” sweet spot keeps things nimble and the S30V steel offers excellent edge retention and corrosion resistance. A liner lock secures the blade when in use, and unique to the Fastball is the fact that the liner itself is only on one side of the handles to further save on overall weight. At only 2.7 ounces, it makes for a slim and lightweight addition to any loadout, and is discreet enough to use in any setting. Aircraft grade aluminum scales dressed in the new black colorway complete the fit, providing a pleasant satiny feel in hand. Last but not least, a jimped backspacer adds a bit of extra grip towards the back of the knife.

The Fastball sits discreetly in any pocket thanks to its compact closed length of only 4“. Its stainless steel clip allows carry options in pocket or attached to webbing, and allows ambidextrous use of the knife thanks to 3-way positioning. An oval lanyard hole also allows suspended neck or pocket carry for even more EDC options.

Look no further for a made-in-the-USA daily driver that’s both handsome and tough. Check it out at the link below.
