Gerber Automatic Knives are built to withstand an incredible amount of use.

The Gerber 06 Auto carries on the Gerber automatic name, featuring an over-sized release button for use with gloves, a slide safety that engages in both the open and closed positions, a stainless steel pommel with a strike point, a lanyard hole compatible with 550 cord, a partially serrated edge, and a contoured aluminum handle for a secure grip whether your working with blade or the handle. The stainless steel blade is made using S30V, a premium stainless steel that stands up to incredible abuse while holding it's edge like no other.

Note from Cam: The Gerber 06 auto is all business. It may not win a beauty contest, but once you wrap your hands around the handle it's a no-brainer. This is the knife for any serious situation.

Bottom line: You can't go wrong with a Gerber automatic knife.

Solid, well built
Tyler N.
This is a great knife, I've carried it on occasion for some time now. This is a beast, very solid, somewhat heavy and it takes abuse. If the action were a little faster, I'd give it a five. The spring is solid but the blade moves fairly slowly... but it is a beefy blade to move.
A beast!
Michael D.
This knife is a monster, in a good way. It takes abuse like nothing, and the big grip is comfortable for extended use. You'll feel it in your pocket for sure, but that's ok, it earns its keep.
Auto 06 Serated
James L.
As advertised but...
No belt sheath as advertised. No big deal I guess so, change the listing.
As others have noted, blade deployment is very sluggish.
This is because of the heft - size & weight of the blade.
The Tanto 06 snaps out but is half the heft of this one.
If Gerber put a strong enough spring in this one to snap the blade out the unit would probably jump out of the hand or destroy itself over time.

Very Disappointed
Jacob H.
I purchased this knife after i watched the video "the most prolific automatic knife ever." when i got the knife i first noticed that it was delivered without the sheath that it was supposed to come with. That was not a big deal to me as I don't use a sheath, but it was frustrating non the less. The real issue was the deployment of the blade. It was AWFUL! The blade would not deploy fully without a firm snap of my wrist. and occasionally it still wouldn't deploy fully even with a snap of the wrist. I was very disappointed with its function. Needless to say i returned it and purchased a spyderco paramilitary 2 instead. I am very pleased with the choice i made to switch knives. I would not recommended the gerber 06 auto.
Flipper not Auto
Harold S.
No power behind opening. More of a flop part way open.
I was told it was do to the desire to be silent in the field when they are opened is why they don't snap open.
Total BS.

Great Knife, but
Jason L.
This is the 4th or 5th auto knife I've had. After having it for only a couple of days, it's clearly well built, a great size, and has good weight to it.

However, the deployment spring, while it does its job, it feels super weak. The opening action seems like its in slow-motion. As this is/was a military issued knife, I expected some sense of urgency when deploying the blade.

If it wasn't for that issue, it's definitely a 5-star knife.

No need...knife does the talking
Leise l.
Had a lot of knives over the years,but this one is the only one I replaced with exact same one. No need for an upgrade, this one is it. Made in America for Americans by Americans. That says it all.
