Gerber has turned its gaze once again towards the enthusiast sector with a new knife called the Savvy. Available in both the standard line and through Gerber’s custom shop, the Savvy aims to please diehard knife nerds with quality materials, trend-conscious design, and their take on a popular lock mechanism.
According to the Gerber literature, the Savvy’s intended to be an intuitive, flexible, comfortable user. There are lots of different elements in its design that speak to these goals, none more so than the blade. Say what you want about Gerber, they’ve been quite in tune with blade shape trends; so we see the Savvy packing a 3.5-inch wharncliffe blade, modified just a tad to turn the traditional straight cutting edge into something with a bit more belly to it. Opened with a thumb stud, it’s made from CPM-20CV steel. A modern super steel in the Gerber lineup isn’t the shock that it would’ve been a few years ago, but it’s still an uncommon sight and a performance-friendly way for the Savvy to establish its bonafides.
I am looking forward to seeing this one at Blade Show.View Linked Article
