The Answer F.A.S.T. assisted opening folder, developed in order to provide lightning-fast access to a blade when most needed, is a Gerber tactical innovator. The dual thumb studs operating in conjunction with the smart safety-slide lock offer an intuitive ease of utility. The Answer F.A.S.T does as the name suggests: once in the right hands, problem-solving is a snap.
ASSISTED OPEN FOR LIGHTNING QUICK USE
Using one hand, intuitively flip the Answer F.A.S.T. tanto-style folder open while actively engaged in cracking into a box, tearing through a cord, or snapping ties or netting. With its 3.25-inch partially serrated hardy stainless steel tanto blade coated in black oxide for low visual signature, this assisted-open blade can stand up to tough application. Its super-solid anodized aluminum handle will tolerate muscular utility while keeping weight at a minimum, and the textured inlay on the handle allows for confident use by its operator. Jimping on the upper handle beneath the thumb and curvature of thoughtfully positioned lower finger grooves are built for easy ergonomic functioning and grip with this sturdy blade when downrange.
LOCK DOWN INSURANCE FOR SAFETY
Engage the sturdy, light 4.9 ounce folder’s safety slide locking mechanism with the thumb once the blade is deployed; the blade can then be closed one-handed after the slide lock is compressed upward merely by flipping it down against a hard surface. Tip-down carry makes it easy to bring the Answer F.A.S.T. out of a pocket, engage the safety-slide lock, and open the blade wherever and whenever the need for a beefy blade might arise. A stainless pocket clip is attached, and a lanyard hole in the pommel provides for the option of tie-down for additional security.
