Gerber takes the taunting appeal out of a butcher knife with the Asada folding knife. It features a butcher-esque blade but made EDC friendly.
The Gerber Asada Pocket Cleaver boasts subtly machined anodized aluminum mark scales to make it pocket friendly and a faded edge finish for a streamlined look. It uses the brand’s B.O.S.S. ball bearings pivot and the 7Cr17MoV blade deploys via an oversized tractioned flipper nib. Gerber’s patented Pinch Plate ensures the consistent effectiveness of the flipper. Once opened, the butcher blade locks in place via a stainless steel frame lock.
This pocket-friendly cleaver has an ergonomic textured handle to give you a good and safe grip. The finger choil found in between the flipper and stonewash plain cutting edge offers additional grip versatility for optimum grip control to make cutting precise and safe.
The Gerber Asada Pocket Cleaver comes at a compact size of 7.5 inches with the blade deployed. The blade length is at 3 inches and width at 1.12 inches and its cutting edge measures 2.50 inches. The butcher-style blade is also relatively thin at just 0.14 inches.
The stainless steel handle gives you just enough space to hold at 4.25 inches long and 0.42 inches thin. This knife also does not weigh you down contrary to typical cleavers or butcher knives. It only weighs 4.7 ounces which is relatively lightweight given its blade design.
Upping the portability of the Gerber Asada Pocket Cleaver for on-the-go cutting jobs is the added tip-up pocket clip. This folding knife also comes with the micarta scale option in D2 steel blade and in a drab red, onyx, and olive colored handles.Get It Here
