Let’s appreciate Gerber’s new Quadrant knife for what it is: A good-looking knife at a decent price point that serious knife nuts will likely despise. The Quadrant Knife wasn’t created for serious EDC knife carriers, however. And the budget 7Cr17MoV steel only proves this point.
For the occasional Prime package unboxing, however, the Quadrant is a standout in a crowded field of mediocre-looking budget knives thanks to it’s unique bamboo handle scales and sheepsfoot blade shape. A flipper-opening mechanism doesn’t hurt it’s cause, either.
This knife is for the man who recognizes the need for an EDC knife, prefers his EDC knife to look just as good as his suit and car, and would rather spend most of his hard-earned money on expensive bourbon and high yield retirement investments. It’s an eye-catching budget knife with clean lines and a unique design that’s sure to impress every time it’s deployed this summer.
