Gerber's Air Frame is the finest, most innovative production knife available today. Designed by artist and custom knifemaker William Harsey, the Air Frame boasts innovation in handle design, uses the finest materials available, and is produced with flawless craftsmanship.
The Air Frame's handle is the first of its kind. Made by casting 6AL4V Titanuim, the handles have contouring, fit and finish not possible with traditional machining or "layering up" manufacturing. All the edges are rounded, providing a smooth comfortable grip. Titanium construction makes the handles as strong as steel, corrosion resistant, yet lightweight.
Air Frame has an aggressive clip point blade made from 154CM stainless steel. The domestic equivalent of ATS-34, this U.S. made stainless steel takes and holds and edge better than the 440 series stainless steels. Blades are available with a fine edge or partially serrated edge, and are heat treated to 59-61c. This provides the best edge holding ability while maintaining flexibility and strength.
Gerber's new Air Frame also has a titanium liner and pocket clip. All fastening hardware and pivot points are machined stainless steel.
The designer, William Harsey, has been designing and making custom knives for 20 years. Harsey designed the Air Frame to not only be ruggedly functional, but to exhibit true artistic styling as well. It is this attention to aesthetics that separates William Harsey from other custom knife makers.
