The big brother of your daily carry knife, this knife blends together thoughtful design elements and Gerber ingenuity. The larger profile affords more cutting surface as well as added comfort for bigger hands. It has to be pickup truck tough but not monster truck heavy, open fast and easily, and sit solidly in your hand. The blade should make quick work of slicing anything from stubborn knots to lunch, but not be so long or so short that itâs awkward or out of balance.
A Handful Of Just Right
The Outrigger XL blends elements of three of Gerberâs most popular clip folders from the past decade into 2.5 oz. of multi-faceted, problem-solving design. The Assisted Opening 2.0 technology-popularized with the Gerber Instant-uses a ball-bearing pivot for buttery smooth, one-handed opening. For added safety, the thumb Plunge Lock on the handle offers easy release when closing, keeping your fingers from the bladeâs path. The open frame design strips weight out, while adding texture to the body for increased hold. Grippy without feeling sticky, the Outrigger is finished with the same molded, rubberized handle coating that debuted on the AR 3.0, keeping the knife right where itâs supposed to be-your hand.
Long Is Strong
the Outrigger XLâs partially-serrated drop point 3.38-" blade delivers solutions. Making quick work of daily tasks, the fine edge section offers clean, accurate cuts while the serrated portion smoothly dispatches rope, twine or an aluminum can, even after hours of use. The Assisted Opening 2.0 mechanism opens quickly and easily, with one hand or two, thanks to dual thumb studs atop the blade. When itâs time to close up, just push the Plunge Lock for a positive release and smooth two-handed closure.
