he Answer F.A.S.T. XL assisted opening folding knife, developed in order to provide lightning-quick access to a knife when most needed, is a Gerber tactical innovator. The dual thumb studs operating in conjunction with the smart safety-slide lock offer an intuitive ease of utility. The Answer F.A.S.T XL, building on its smaller sibling’s profile, does as the name suggests: once in the hands of the owner, problem-solving is a snap.

Using one hand, intuitively flip open the Answer F.A.S.T. XL tanto-style folder while actively engaged in cutting into a box, tearing through a cord, or snapping ties or netting. With its 4-inch partially serrated hardy stainless steel blade coated in black oxide for low visual signature, this assisted-open knife can stand up to tough application. Its super-solid anodized aluminum handle will tolerate muscular utility while keeping weight at a minimum, and the textured inlay on the handle allows for confident use by its operator. Jimping on the upper handle beneath the thumb and curvature of thoughtfully positioned lower finger grooves are built for easy ergonomic functioning and grip with this sturdy knife when downrange.

Engage the capable 7 ounce folder’s safety slide locking mechanism with the thumb once the blade is deployed; the blade can then be closed one-handed after the slide lock is compressed upward merely by flipping it down against a hard surface. Tip-down carry makes it easy to bring the Answer F.A.S.T. XL out of a pocket, engage the safety-slide lock, and open the knife wherever and whenever the need for a strapping knife might arise. A stainless pocket clip is attached, and a lanyard hole in the pommel provides for the option of tie-down for additional security.
