Strider Knife GB Black G-10 Manual Liner Folding Knife Tiger Stripe Tanto Edge. The Strider GB Frame Lock is built like all of Strider’s knives—tough and burly! It’s a big folder with a hefty blade and a massive frame lock. Overall length is 9-5/8 inches open, with 4-1/16 inches of that being the 3/16-inch-thick tanto pointed blade. The blade is made out of CPM S30V and features Strider’s tiger-striped blade finish. The actual cutting edge is 3-1/2 inches and there’s a prominent finger choil between the grip scales and the start of the blade edge for choking up on the knife. An elongated hole in the blade, along with a set of studs which double as blade stops, allows for an ambidextrous opening. There is a series of thumb grooves on the spine of the blade that match up with a set on the grip scales of the knife. The GB uses a sand-blasted Titanium frame mated up with a textured black G-10 scale to provide a sturdy and solid grip. The back strap is also constructed of black G-10. The combination of G-10 and Titanium helps keep the weight of the GB down to 7-1/2 ounces, which isn’t bad considering its overall size. Closed length is 5-3/8 inches on the GB and it can be carried by means of the matte-blasted-finish pocket clip. The clip is removable, but not reversible, and is situated for tip-up carry.

The GB rotates open on an oversized pivot and does so smoothly. The frame lock emits a loud click as it snaps into place and is well centered on the blade when locked. The grind on the GB is interesting. It’s a 3/4-ground blade for the main cutting surface, which allows for a thick spine while still keeping the edge thin enough to take a razor edge. The knife would take off arm hair with little effort.

The tip of the tanto appears to be ground at a more acute angle than the main cutting edge. This should add a good deal of strength to the point to withstand penetration against tougher objects and some light prying. Yes, I know, knives aren’t made for prying but I see enough guys at work doing it, though, that it’s something designers have to take into account. They may not be made for it, but guys have a habit of doing it anyway. Especially if it’s the only tool you have with you at the time and you have a job that needs to be done. collection piece lightly carried
