An everyday carry knife is only as useful as it is easy to carry and access. The Gerber Paraframe Tanto Knife walks the line between full-size functionality and compact size for discreet carry. With a closed length of just over 4 inches, the Paraframe is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, yet still packs a nearly 3-inch tanto-style blade.

Balanced Feel - The first thing you’ll notice when you handle this knife is its balanced feel. Like an evenly weighted skipping stone, the skeletonized metal handle complements the weight of the blade to provide a positive, confident feel for a smaller knife. Equally as important, it’s a pleasure to carry. Clip it to your pocket or belt, and it literally disappears until you know you need it.

It's in the details - Gerber’s decades-long history crafting tools shines in the small details that have earned the Paraframe design its popularity: twin knurled thumb studs for easy blade engagement, a beefy frame lock for secure blade use, and the blade itself, a capable partially serrated tanto style. There’s even a metal pocket clip to keep it handy at a moment’s notice.
