First Look: Gerber Affinity


Sometimes A Simple Knife Is All You Need, And This New Folder From Gerber Looks Sharp And Is Sharp.

The new Affinity from Gerber is a straightforward, plain-edge folding EDC. That’s not a slight but a compliment. The piece comes in two colorways and both shine thanks to their construction and ease of use.

It starts with the aluminum version that has a 7CR blade and an easy-access frame lock. This allows the cutting edge to be exactly where you expect it and allows you to slice with confidence knowing the blade is secure.

The handle is highly-polished for a clean, modern look. The ergonomic design, along with the adjustable thumb stud, allows you to make the knife your own and have it feel perfect in your hand. The pocket clip allows for easy carry as it discretely tucks away.

The other version is the copper. The copper features all the same features as the aluminum version with two key differences. The most obvious are the machined copper scales that give the blade a tough-looking exterior.

The other key difference is the in the blade; the copper has a blade made from D2 steel, which drives up the price although both are affordable folders.

MSRP: $45 (aluminum), $58 (copper)
