The Gerber Highbrow Compact is an EDC pocket knife with an assisted opening. This means that a spring will help it as you open the knife. As such it will open smoothly. A great feature! You use the Gerber Highbrow for many different daily tasks. Think of opening boxes, preparing a sandwich or cutting cardboard to pieces. The Highbrow Compact is perfect for these tasks, and also favourably priced.
With the flipper you quickly open the Highbrow because of the assisted opening. You, of course, don't want the knife to close as you use it. That is why Gerber enhanced it with a special Pivot lock. Great for both left and right-handed use. As such left-handed users can also easily the Gerber Highbrow. It also contains a special latch you can use to lock it when closed. As such you make sure that the knife doesn't accidentally open in your pocket.
Gerber used aluminium for the handle. Because the surface behind the lock differs in terms of texture, the illusion of a bolster is created optically. A great detail. All in all the Gerber Highbrow Compact is a great pocket knife for a great price.
