I've had this knife for about a year and I feel that i need to clarify why people have so much trouble with them. Simply put, the issue is the powder coating that is on both the blade and the spring arm that actuate the spring assisted action. When you first get the knife, the coating mashes together where those two parts meet and they create way too much friction until you open and close the knife several times, after which the powder coat wears off and the knife operates smoothly and as shown in the video. I will say that every other aspect of this knife is very good. The blade holds an edge as well as you would expect it to and then some, and the weight of the knife is perfect. Along with the slim profile, this knife is actually a very good EDC choice for those who need a light-to-mid-weight working knife and want a spring assisted action.
The fact that this knife does have this issue from the factory though does lose it a star, and i can understand how people who get this knife and don't very carefully examine it could think it doesn't work the way it should.

I agree that it loses a star for break in, but its a solid knife. I played with it, opening and closing, and it breaks in quick. I'd say after doing it for like 10minutes it opened easily. It got a little better after a couple days. It's light weight, but feels good. Maybe not über fancy, but I'd buy again.

I've had this knife for about three months. First, Gerber should be sued for false advertising. I'd love to see the guy in the video single handedly open this up like shown. I'm a 40 year precision machinist, I can tell you this was a bad design from the start. I disassembled it, and reworked the mechanism. It's better, but still not there. They put the thing together with locktite on the threads of very small torx screws. I've had it apart three times now and the cheap metal torx screws probably won't handle another disassembly. The thumb opening stud is too close to the pivot point for any kind of one handed operation. I gave it two stars because the blade is sharp, and I like the punch lock safety. The safety lock had sharp edges not allowing it to function when I received it. After polishing and re-lubing that, it works fine. No one should have to re-engineer and rebuild a new knife to make it work. I could have afforded a Benchmade, if I wouldn't have had to spend a couple hours working on this piece of.... BTW, I did go and buy a Benchmade. Save your pennys, nickels, and dimes, and buy American.

My knife was a little stiff out of the package, but working it through the action a few times smoothed it out. It didn't take several hundred opens.

The spring on this knife is solid, and the handle is a little light, so it has a bit of a kick on open. Make sure to keep a firm grip and do not choke up on the handle. Once you're used to it, this is a fantastic one-handed opener. It looks great when closed & clipped to a pocket, and the composite handle provides good grip. The edge did need a bit of sharpening, but only a quick pass with a fine stone.

I like Gerber knives and have always had one. I bought the Swagger because of the assisted opening feature but it does not work smoothly at all. After checking reviews online I found that it may take up to a year of use for the assisted opening action to smooth out. I have been working on it for a month and it is now working a little better. If I had known this before I purchased I would have never bought this knife. I would expect a Gerber to function perfect right out of the box. Disappointed....

I like the size and style of this knife, but the opening mechanism is very stiff. Even after several days of open-close-repeat -- at least 400 times -- plus a couple drops of oil, I couldn't get it to open *easily* with one hand. So, I'm returning it in favor of the Gerber Outrigger XL, which did loosen up sufficiently after several days of use.

Very impressed with the knife, haven't had any problems. The build quality is superior, but it is a little difficult to use the AO. I'm assuming, after 100 swings it should open easy with one hand control. Great buy.

Have had the knife for about a month and have really enjoyed it.
Great edge and enough serration for what I need it for (EDC)
the assisted opening was pretty tight at first and took some working in to feel like i wasn't ripping the skin off my thumb.
Great snap to the blade, lightweight and a thin profile.
I had an older Buck Whitaker that I loved (blade snapped) and this has done a great job filling in.
