Steel Will Knives - Gekko 1551
For consumers who have praised the design of the Gekko 1500 but found it too large for everyday carry, the new line of Gekko mini folders are the ideal alternative. Designed to excel in the great outdoors as well as common utility tasks, these Italian-made folders are as beautiful as they are functional. The blade locks firmly in place with its reliable lockback mechanism, allowing it to confidently operate under heavy loads. The Gekko 1551 has a Black G-10 handle that beautifully offsets the satin blade.

Great looks. Excellent feel in the hand. Top-notch fit & finish.
Love the lines of the blade & handle. Clip is plain & fancy at the same time. Doesn't draw attention as it sits in my pocket but the three screws that attach it are so neatly flush to the surface and tangent to the edges to give it some 'beauty in the details' appeal. Overall there's enough style to be dressy but there's enough heft to not be mistaken for a wimpy 'gentleman's knife'. Lots of visual appeal but I'm sure it could be put to hard use & survive unscathed if needed.
Do you get the idea that I'm really impressed with this knife? You're right! I own an unreasonable number of knives & have had several that looked great online & in YouTube reviews that were either disappointing upon arrival or after a few days of use. This is not one of them!
Hope this is helpful & I sincerely hope you enjoy yours as much as I'm enjoying mine should you buy one. Cheers!
