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.

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.
