The Gerber Torch II Tanto has a tanto style drop point blade that is partially serrated and non-reflective thanks to the black coating. When closed the Gerber Torch II has a finger push on the back of the knife that can be used to rapidly open the blade. When the blade is open the finger push swings around and takes position as a finger guard. The knife is held open by a frame lock integrated into the stainless handle. G10 inserts are mounted on the handle for good grip in wet or dry conditions.
