This Covert Auto model has a black finished CPM-S30V stainless steel blade with a partially serrated edge and a black aluminum handle.

The Gerber Covert Auto is an evolution of the Applegate-Fairbairn folder with the addition of fast automatic action at the press of a button. It has an over-sized release button for easy deployment even with gloves. A front mounted safety engages in both the open and closed positions for secure carry and use. The Covert features aluminum scales with grip enhancing grooves and stainless liners to assure the rigidity of the handle. Its removable deep carry clip allows convenient and discreet carry. Comfortable, practical, and reasonably priced, the Covert makes an excellent tactical knife choice.

I Just wanted to thank blade hq for the awesome products/service. I just got my gerber earlier than expected and the knife is amazing quality and value for the price. Definitely recommend it.
Just Got Mine!

I whole heartedly agree with the other reviews. Great affordable auto by Gerber made in the USA! Can't beat the price for this value. Razor sharp, smooth opening, and sturdy. Plus the convenience of the safety. Thx BladeHQ.
Incredible value
Shawn D.
Soooo nice for the money. Highly recommended! I bought 2 I like it so much. Very solid, super sharp, fires hard.
"Poor man's Benchmade"

Good quality knife/excellent value.

Great look, functions well, reliable company. These are in lock step with BM autos (minus exotic steel/materials and a few minor details you'd have to be holding both to notice.) Rides low in pocket without the bright white Gerber logo.

Welcome addition to my collection. Add to your MUST PURCHASE list. This is a 4.75 STAR knife

Only 4 star rating: Handle is smallish, slick and requires an unsure grip when opening.(Paramedic with big hands, so knife used as a tool and potential defensive weapon. Either way not dropping the knife when deploying is not my focus.)

Also, clip was 'sprung' (not tight) out of the box.
Superb Auto!
James V.
Outstanding auto from Gerber. Made in the USA and the quality is far better than the Chinese made assisted version. Feels well balanced and good in the had. Top choice for a smaller personal defense knife.
THE "knife of last resort"

Blade HQ customer service is FANTASTIC!

I've been happily carrying the assisted open little brother to this knife for a while. This knife is a VERY nice upgrade. Razor sharp S30V blade, aluminum grip/handle, light weight, snappy opening and solid lock-up, great balance and fit/feel in the hand. What else could you want. This is THE knife of last resort!
Very nice

Received this knife with minor scratches and discoloration on the blade. Contacted customer service and they were extremely helpful. Emailed me a postage paid return label and sent me a new one .Great company to deal with. Well made knife, fits my large hand perfectly. One of my favorites.
