ADDITIONAL INFO: The Gerber Paul knives were designed by Paul Pohlmann. They were made in the Portland Oregon, at the Gerber factory from 1977 to 1986. There was an additional Series II made in the late 1990s. The rights to the pattern were later acquired by Lone Wolf Knives and they made a number of them with nice handles.
NOTES ON OPERATION:
Push the button all the way in and rotate the blade open. To Close, push the button all the way in and rotate the blade closed. If the button is not pushed all the way in the blade gets stiff especially when closing. I have another Paul knife and it has the same issue. I think it is part of the design, perhaps a design flaw. It does take a little practice to get proficient with this style of lock. But once you become proficient, they're very easy to use.
