We wanted a great light weight knife for outdoor adventures. The Gerber Paraframe fits the need. The handle is skeletonized yet rigid, while the locking foldable blade is strudy for EDC and emergency use. While it's not a multi-tool, it's perfect for situations where a bulky tool isn't ideal.
What We Like
The Gerber Paraframe is great for EDC or backpacking. The single locking blade is sturdy and the overall tool is light weight with the skeleton handle. Besides EDC, we consider it ideal for essentials pouches. Compare it to the Swiss Army Knife or Skeletool. Each has weight, bulk, and tool considerations. Personally, I carry the Skeletool, stow the Leatherman Wave in my Go-Bag, and keep either the Paraframe or Swiss Army Knife as a backup in the essentials pouch.
Gerber is a reputable brand that puts out great products. The paraframe was intended to be a reliable option when weight restrictions are a factor.
This tool can tackle many of every day applications. It can help you build shelter, prepare food, administer first aid, prepare fuel for burning, cut cordage, and so much more. It's just the right size to keep its weight minimized while providing the best function.
