Gerber Fastball: S30V & USA MADE – Thoughts, Wins, and Losses

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars

The Gerber Fastball was first seen by ETV at Shot Show 2019. It’s a slick looking EDC knife with a nice steel (S30V), and for me this thing has functioned well. I do give props to Gerber for working on making more knives in the United States and also for using a good steel. They have a little work to do in QC, so check out the video and let me know what you think.

7 thoughts on “Gerber Fastball: S30V & USA MADE – Thoughts, Wins, and Losses

  1. Code Steel American Lawman, made in Taiwan, G10 scales, S35VN steel, fits my hand amazingly well for normal grip, reverse grip, and choking up for detailed work. It’s 100% ambidextrous (even comes with a second pocket clip so it curves the right way). Came super sharp. It’s a little bigger than my Native 5, and much bigger that the TuffLite (which is another amazing knife for the price), so it’s my “large” knife. I just started to EDC it. I actually carry all three.

  2. Glad to see reviews of this knife popping up on the internet. I fell in love with this knife immediately and bought one. I’m aware there are other great options at this price but this was the right one for me (not a fan of the bugout handle material, mini grip’s handle is too small, delica has a larger profile, etc). Mine came with perfect centering but a bad grind on the blade (and not very sharp). A bit of time with a stone fixed all of that. Very happy with my decision. The handles can be a bit slick though haha. Assuming gerber keeps their QC up, i hope this knife does very well for them!

  3. Excellent review with very good thoughts, thanks! I especially agree with your thoughts on grinds on a $100 knife. For my $100 suggestion, the regular Spyderco Stretch is a knife I believe you should consider. Some versions of it are more than $100, but the regular ones with FRN handles and VG-10 steel are a little less than $100.
