PORTLAND, OREGON (July 25th, 2017) – GERBER, an industry-leading manufacturer of personal knives, multi-tools, and gear, announces the introduction of the new Sharkbelly. This smartly designed knife is an update to the classic everyday carry pocket knife with lightweight utility and standout features. Designed and built in Gerber’s Portland, Oregon manufacturing facility, this American made knife is available in partially serrated and full fine edge blade variations.
The 420HC modern sheepsfoot-style blade is easily deployed with a sizable thumb hole, revealing flat top serrations that are easy to sharpen on a flat stone and practical for daily use. The tactile SharkSkin Grip™ succeeds in function and aesthetics with unidirectional scales that provide additional traction when in hand – smooth in one direction and grippy in the other.
The SharkBelly’s scratch-resistant wire pocket clip means it can be worn anywhere without worry of causing damage to a car, bike, or other valuables you might brush up against, and weighing in at just under 2.3 oz, it has a place in any pocket or pack.
