Gerber Crafts A 7.5″ Micarta-Handled D2 Cleaver-Style Folder Designed For EDC

With beefy and robust blade constructions that boast amply-sized cutting surfaces and unmistakably aggressive appearances, cleaver-style folding knives have become increasingly popular over the last few years. In response, knife makers have stepped up to meet the increasing demand, including Gerber. And now, on the heels of the Portland brand’s Flatiron, Fastball, and TRI-Tip Mini Cleaver, Gerber has revealed yet another butcher-esque blade with the new “Asada” folding knife.

This new frame lock folder attempts to deliver a more EDC-friendly knife while maintaining the knives’ distinct cleaver silhouette. Boasting a faded finish around the edge, the blade is composed of D2 steel, is guided via Gerber’s B.O.S.S. ball bearings, deployed via an oversized flipper nib, and measures around 3”. Paired with a set of micarta scales, the entire knife comes in at 7.5” when opened, and tips the scales at less than a third of a pound (0.29lbs or 4.7oz to be exact). The Asada is also equipped with a pocket clip and Gerber’s patented Pinch Plate —a stop pin that also affords grip when the knife is open. The Gerber Asada Folding Cleaver Knife is expected to be released in the coming days, with the knife priced at $56.
