Description

A Gerber automatic knife: synonymous with strength and quality.

The Gerber 06 Auto Tanto features 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 and 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.

The Gerber 06 auto is a popular knife in the Gerber automatic knife series, and for good reason.

You will read that this knife is slow to open. When I first got my 06, it was not snappy; however, as I used the knife, it became very quick to open. This knife needs a minor break-in period, and you will be very pleased with it. The 06 is one of the best feeling knives in the hand of all my knives. Yes, it is a little heavy, but it is a great knife for all tasks. It is now my favorite go-to knife.

I just got this knife and if it is good enough for our military it’s good enough for me it is hard to sharpen but I really like it ! It was a great buy ! I am really happy to EDC it everyday it is not to big for your pocket but you know it is there or when it is not. SFMF and GOD bless AMERICA!!!!

The blade was slow opening and it needed to be lubricated and broke in now it works way better I really like this knife

Ok long time review the blade really needed to be broke in it really works great I really like this action

6months I love this knife so much I got my buddy one holy cow is he ever happy thank you GERBER

A year and the spring broke gerber sent me a new one and guess what? Spring broke this knife is junk
Built like a tank.

I've read some have had problems with loose screws and a slow action but I have had no such problems. I'll admit when I first got it the action was sluggish but I put a couple drops of gun oil on the pivot point and "exercised" it a bit and it sped right up. You can also find spring upgrades for this auto online if needed. It's a top notch knife at a good price. Razor sharp out of the box. No worries.
Excellent Work Knife

I am not a new purchaser, I bought my first 06 in 2011 and have managed not to loose it for all these years, a record. I am a contractor, this is my working knife and I carry it daily. I do things to it that I would never do to my other automatics, I have driven it with as hammer, sharpened it in a hurry badly and recovered, used it as a hammer...

After eight years of constant use, sporadic misuse, etc., the knife is still very tight, the action is what I call dependable. It is extremely slow and deliberate, it snaps solidly and never half opens.

It is not an EDC knife, this beast is heavy, you will know it is in your pocket (more important, when it's not). Every pair of my jeans is worn to the exact outline of the knife, not exactly discrete carry.

This is a high quality work knife but at the opposite end of the spectrum from a protech. My protechs are fast EDC knives and I protect them from damage and misuse. With the 06, I don't even worry about it, I just use it

This blade is an awesome beast. I have a few of them with G10 and aluminum scales as well as black and satin blades. The first one I picked up had a strong deployment the remaining ones had to be adjusted. They were sluggish and slow like Janna the hut or Rosie O’Donnel after a couple Xanax. Unlike Rosie, I could make these top notch with a little TLC.

At first I was a little skeptical at buying this knife because there were no reviews for this website. Well, I bought it and can say that I trust Blade HQ and will buy from them in the future. Very fast shipping, well packaged, good customer service and most of all, a wonderful knife. I would recommend this knife.
