Gerber Pledge

The Pledge is Gerber’s promise to offer a low-cost knife with a compelling design you can depend on. Gerber delivers on that pledge in spades.

Gerber makes some of the best high-quality knives made in America you can buy, such as the 06 Auto and StrongArm. But their budget-friendly models are some of the most underrated knives on the market, including our latest Knife of the Week.

The Gerber Pledge features a slim 3.7-inch blade with a full panel reverse tanto blade. This is a unique blade shape that offers additional versatility for everyday carry.

It opens with a reversible thumb stud and locks in place with a liner lock.

The urban blue glass-filled nylon scales are understated and comfortable to hold. A reversible pocket clip and overall weight of 2.9 ounces means it’s easy to carry.

At this price point, it’d be difficult to find a better slim folder with a compact construction than the Pledge.
