Gerber Paul II

Dec 8, 1998
Came across the Paul II while searching for an interesting, legal pocket carry for every day.
Nice finish, simple fairly good grip. Does all the usual chores.
The opening mechanism is very entertaining and quite unusual - you actually hold the blade while the handle swings away...
The only negetive, aside that it's somewhat pricey, is that it's a bit too heavy.
Anyway, it goes into my collection under "Unusual Opening Mechanisms - Legal"....Ed E
