The Edict continues Gerber’s history of American-made tactical knives designed to be used by soldiers and police officers. This knife has a full size tanto-style blade with a fine edge and no serrations, allowing for maximum piercing and slicing capabilities. The Edict Folding Clip Knife is proudly made in Portland, OR. The Edict’s blade is made of premium 154CM steel for excellent edge retention and features a black ceramic coating which maximizes corrosion resistance while minimizing reflective surfaces. Thumb studs allow for quick one-handed blade deployment, and the knife’s lock back closing mechanism provides structural integrity in heavy-duty applications. The glass-filled nylon handle is built with a large palm swell, a finger guard for heavy-duty work, and a rubberized diamond texture for a secure grip in all weather conditions. The Edict Folding Clip Knife is made for hard labor over the long haul. Slip it into a pocket for daily access to a knife that will answer with strength and assurance when tasked. Tie the knife down using its lanyard hole for additional security.
