Description

Taking inspiration from modern Japanese design and traditional friction folders the Gerber Ayako is a slender everyday carry design with plenty of style that packs a punch. Sleek aluminum and stainless handles houses the classic Tanto profile blade which opens via the tang lever locking securely via the modern frame lock construction. This version comes with a sliver aluminum front scale, matching stainless steel frame lock and black oxide coated blade.

Brand new, directly from Gerber.

Blade: With 3 and 3/8 inches of razor sharp, hollow ground cutting edge the Tanto blade of the Ayako delivers well-balanced performance and durability. The blade rides on phosphor bronze washers for smooth operation, deploying via the extended tang lever with jimping for traction. A black oxide coating offers a non-reflective finish for discreet use.

Handle: An open back construction reduces weight and allows for easy cleaning and maintenance with an aluminum front scale for lightweight durability and a stainless steel frame lock for smooth operation and reliable, secure lockup. Machined texture enhances traction in the grip while allowing for smooth draw of the knife from the pocket.

Carries via right hand, tip-down only, stainless steel pocket clip.

7Cr17MoV Stainless Steel: Chinese equivalent of the AISI 440A stainless steel a high corrosion resistant stainless steel used in budget and dive knives.
