Great feel in the hand. Large buttons allow easy use with my disability. I think the deployment speed is slower than some knives, but operates just fine. I noticed this was an issue for some, a little overblown. Great EDC came super sharp.

I am a retired police officer (38 years) and a former Marine. I really love this knife. I have large hands, take an XL glove and this knife fits my hand like a glove. It is a heavier knife but nothing unreasonable, I am currently edc'ing this blade and find it comfortable. Good weight and balance. The blade is not as fast as my other autos, but it does what it is supposed to and locks up solid. Easy to use with gloves on and a solid safety switch. The blade came hair cutting sharp right out of the box. I would definitely recommend this knife to anyone. I like this knife so well that I am planning on obtaining a second one in all black.

I initially wanted one of these back in the Army when were phasing out. I unfortunately wasn't issued one. But after my superior showed me his I immediately said, "One day I will own one of these!"

Years later I purchased the 10th Ann 06 Auto edition and I'm excited to announce I couldn't be more pleased!

Pros:

- The Handle: is large, heavy duty, handle beveling, easy deployment, gimping, large access plunge button, easy access lock, handle guard, scale serrations, finger grooves and a flipping awesome glass breaker with a lanyard hole. Easy to dismantle and easy to clean.

- Blade: Robust, S30V, stonewash finish, excellent lazer engravings and it's an American drop point.

Cons:

Note: It took myself and the BladeHQ employee going through 10 boxes of the 10th Ann version before we found one that had a useable spring...Even then this spring has started to make a creaking sound when used now. Finally had to order Omega spring replacements.

- Handle: Way to large for average usage. screws become loose quicker, gimping on the front is in a weird position hugging the pinky, pocket clip is oddly placed and not easy to replace.

- Blade: There's blade play

Conclusion - Definitely grab this knife but make sure you either A. Find one with a good spring, or B. Grab your own replacement Omega springs. It's my daily carry and it's used consistently! It's robust, easy to sharpen with the S30V and is fun useful tool!

Have carried a Gerber for years and really stood by them, and was more than happy to pay $200 for this special edition, but have really just been disappointed with it so far. Purchased in Feb 2018 - Broke in Aug 2018. Coil spring snapped in half during just a rountine opening. I carry it everyday, but have really only used it to cut boxes, etc. Firing is SLOW and after about 2 months started to get failures before the spring broke. Huge bummer. Expected more out of Gerber. Good looking knife, worth a spring upgrade if you have the mental strength to fight it.
Best knife ever!

This truly is the best knife Iíve owned in a long time. I started with the black drop point 5 years ago, and now purchased one of the anniversary knives. Great quality, keeps a good edge, VERY durable, great overall knife. The best part is ďMade in the USAĒ.

Deployment isnít as snappy as others, but gets the job done with a heavier blade.

Cons: Slowest deploying knife I have ever seen. Spring feels super weak. held on bottom edge standing up. 30 attempts at deploying blade to lock position. All 30 attempts failed. Pros: High quality materials and a good looking knife. Heavy yet feels good in your hand. Suggestions: a heavy duty spring would resolve the lackluster deployment of the blade, till then it's not staying on my list of knives to have.

I have been carrying the Gerber 06 Auto for the last 3 years. This is my second Gerber 06 auto and the only reason that I am replacing it is because the first got heavily exposed to salt water.

Nice sturdy knife with a decent deploying speed. I carry this daily and have gotten me out of messy situations more the I can count or care to remember.

Knife weight is manageable, it is not light but it is not heavy at least comparing it to my Zero Tolerance 0301.

Great craftmanship, quality and blade steel.

For cons, The finish is very light on the corners, not even 24hrs carrying it and the corner near the glass breaker got wear off easily, I can see straight into the aluminum.

My only disappointment is that my first 06 Auto came with sheath, but this one did not came with it even if the video said it came with it.

Would I recommend this knife? YES, without hesitation.

This is my absolute favorite knife of all time. It feels amazing in hand, like the grooves were ment for my fingers. The speed of the deployment when I first got it was super slow but after some wd40 and some cleaning it's just as fast as any much smaller/lighter automatics. Its amazing how much grip you get out of the aluminum scales I was expecting them to be slippery but the design locks it into your hand. The stonewash on the blade looks amazing. This is a must buy knife

This 10th anniversary edition 06 Auto is beautiful. I got mine about 2 weeks ago. Fast shipping, even with the free shipping. 3 days from order placement to my mailbox. The color of the OD green is amazing & the stonewashed on the blade is gorgeous. Mine came shaving sharp & perfect fast action with no blade play at all. The action is fast for a blade of this size & weight. Love the skull crusher/glass breaker too. Make no mistake, this is a big, beefy, substansial knife. It carries very nice though for it's size & weight. The quality is top notch and with a lifetime warranty I am sure I will be passing this on to my son someday.

Amazing quality and well built knife and awesome shipping from Blade Hq as always. The blade is cool looking in its natural state and looks good with the od green and black accents. Wish Gerber would make more without the coating. Knife is slow at first on opening probably due to the machine oil on it. Sprayed some clp on it and itís quicker. A little slower than my Benchmade AFO2 but only because the blade is larger on the Gerber. Physics plays a part here. I am a knife addict and plan to use this like my others, not much on collecting and putting on a shelf.

Amazing knife, really well built. Feels like an army tank in the hand. Just really beefy and sturdy. I really like that in a knife. In the review video it says that it comes with a sheath. I personally did not receive a sheath with mine giving the fact that its worth $140 at the time that I wrote this and I paid $180 for it but I'm not complaining.

Had a chance to see this knife at my gun store. Workmanship, durability, design plus a very strong clip are a plus for this knife. One Major and I mean MAJOR criticism: the deployment/firing of the knife blade is so "disgustingly slow" it might as well be in "instant replay slow motion!!"

There was a Military Issue version of this not too long ago. One would think that "nothing can be this slow in combat." The Applegate Fairbairn Gerber Auto would be a better model. I hope Gerber does something about this-the knife in itself is superb in design. My Background: Military/Law Enforcement-
