Rated 5 out of 5 by Espresso1 Berber Obsidian Folding Knife
Excellent product as are all of Bean's products. Knife has the safety of a locking blade, serrations to cut through tough material and additional tools to cover many situations. I always carry it. Bean's Customer Service Dept. is second to none, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WVtootall Good, sharp knife
The blade, size and weight are nice and the blade comes pretty sharp. It opens relatively easy. The double locks are nice to ensure the blade stays open or closed. The only complaint I have is it's a little difficult to open the tool accessories (too tight). I almost ripped off a fingernail trying to open them and finally had to get another object to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ChefRichie A Great Knife for the Price
I was surprised at the overall high quality and sharpness of this knife right out of the box. It is well made, and I have several Gerbers, which I trust to last a long time. Good, solid feel and weight, and it has the ever important bottle opener and screwdriver, file, and Phillip's head accessory. Love the double safety lock, and the fact that it's a half serrated blade. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the Phillip's head is weird...too small to fit most screw heads. Other than that, pony up your money and own one!

Got this knife for my husband with the thought that he would use it while hiking. He immediatley clip it in his pocket and has used it several time just around the house. He really likes it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanTrueBeliver larger than appears
Just like my other gerber knifes this one was larger than it appeared in its photo. Not a problem for me. Feels good in my hand.

Gave this knife as a gift to an avid trail hiker. Very impressed with it's features and came sharp enough to use right out of the packaging. I own other Gerber knives and may have to purchase a second one for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perun a nice knife
I find the knife useful (a couple of times have used the screwdrivers too). I own some knives but usually carry this one. Like the handle and the lock mechanism. Can't agree that the blade is thin - it's about of the same width (in the thickest part of the blade) as my Benchmade. This knife can be bought cheaper elsewhere but with LLBean free delivery and gift card it was about the same price. A nice knife for the price.

I got this knife about a year ago for my birthday, and it rides in my pocket every day. It's a fantastic choice because it's a durable, economical and versatile tool. The mechanics of the knife take a little getting used to, but that's hardly stopping me for giving this product a full five stars.
