Traveling light and being prepared are not mutually exclusive when you have the Gerber Mini F.A.S.T. Draw Tanto sitting comfortably in your pocket or on your belt. At less than 2 ounces, this folding tactical knife weighs less than your average collection of keys and is far more capable. The Mini gets the same attention to detail as its full-size sibling, including Gerber’s proven Assisted Opening 2.0 mechanism and safety plunge lock.
An everyday carry tactical knife needs to do more than just offer a reliable blade. It needs to be tough enough to handle the routine and unexpected problems. It should also, like any well-designed tool, foster a comfortable and confident grip that lets you focus on the task at hand. It’s the Mini’s modest size that helps it rise to these demands. Its 2.1-inch tanto-style blade is practical yet truly effective, and together with its molded nylon grip makes for a tool that simply disappears into your pocket until you need it.
Proven Assisted Opening Mechanism
Your job is easier when your tools work easily and as expected and Gerber’s Assisted Opening 2.0 mechanism offers proven one-handed blade engagement. Simply lever the thumb stud to open the blade quickly and positively. The reliable plunge lock keeps the blade fixed when open, and makes for safe, easy closure without putting your fingers in the path of the folding blade.
Tanto Point with Serrated Utility
Modest in size, the tanto blade is ever ready to puncture, cut and perform as the job demands. Partial serration adds utility for working through stubborn materials like knots or thick plastic, where a sawing action can be helpful. Its stealth matte black finish means no reflective blade issues, and an added layer of protection for the blade over the long term.
