EMPOWER series debuted at Shot Show 2018
Gerber debuted the EMPOWER series at Shot Show 2018, which is available in four distinct styles, each with varying colour and material combinations that aim to appeal aesthetically to the EDC consumer.
The EMPOWER series navigates the user divide between EDC users and tactical operators with four colourways and a unique new blade shape, according to Gerber. Based on the chassis of the field-proven PROPEL, the EMPOWER is Gerber’s newest American-made automatic knife. Specifically designed with a focus on everyday carry, this daily workhorse wields quick deployment and safety-focused locking mechanisms. A false edge spear point blade (available in a stonewash or black oxide finish) delivers utility and piercing capability, ideal for survival situations and daily chores alike. The oversized plunge lock and safety slide partner together to provide control when deployed, as well as keep it safely stowed when in pocket. The ARMORED GRIP handle scales offer reliable control and a tactile hand feel; photo-chemical etching provides a quick, confident grip as well as different design options to choose from.
