Initially I thought the price was a bit steep but after having had the knife for a while now I see that it is well worth the money. The knife is of great construction. Has a firm lock, snappy quick deployment, the G10 grip is amazing, and the pocket clip is the best I have used. The safety locks securely however I don't ever use it and have had no issues with the knife deploying in my pocket. The only down side I have to mention is that it is a little bulky in pants with smaller pockets as compared to other knives I have carried. However the knife is amazing and this is easily dealt with. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to spend the money and buy a top notch blade.
Bad Ass Knife!

If you need a knife for every day tasks, defensive purposes all compact in one- this is it. Sharp out of the box, amazing texture for grip and awesome mechanics with the auto/safety deployment. Worth every dollar!

I have the Spyderco version as well... THIS ONE IS BETTER! By far! Sturdier! Easier to hold. Awesome! A well built knife. An Army Veteran buddyy told me how his was just amazing. Ran over by Humvee's. Saved his bacon more than once. I had to get one. Glad I did!

Great knife and it fits my hand perfectly. I really like the lock on it, keeps it from opening in your pocket. It could be sharper and the blade could swing out faster. Over all, it is made very well and is worth the money.

Man if this knife could talk, I can only imagine the stories it would tell me. I received one of these (very old ones) from my PE coach and bible teacher from high school as a graduation gift. He is a former marine, a great man, and a huge role model and great mentor in my life. This knife served him in Iraq, and boy does it show. The blade is chipped in many places, there is some weird sticky gunk on the blade, the pivot screw and hardware screws are all laced with dirt, and after all these years the spring just barely deploys the blade, but I wouldn't change any of that. Every time I look at it I wonder what the story is behind this nick or that chip. So if you want a knife that can literally go through war and come out the other side still kicking, get this knife. This one now has a coveted spot on my knife rack. Maybe one day I'll but a new edge on it (that's all it needs really) and make some stories of my own with it but for now I'm gonna let the old work horse rest. But don't let that dissuade you from getting one of your very own and making your own stories with it.
4 years later and still amazing

I've owned this knife for over 4 years and I don't leave the house without it. What I love most about it is I work outside and occasionally wear gloves and can still unlock and open the knife with zero issue. The added glass break is nice and the G10 handles make this knife super easy to grip. In the entire time of owning this knife I've never had an accidental opening in my pocket, even with the safety off.

I have carried the Gerber 06 FAST everyday for over 3 years and hace absolutely loved it. So I decided to invest in the 06 Auto in my opinion it is super cheap for the quality of knife you get. Hand made right here in the U.S. and made to perfection. I have carried it for a few months and use it a lot at work. I've beat this thing up and it is much stronger than then anything I've put it through. If you looking for a super strong EDC that you can beat up and will serve you wonderfully this is the knife for you. And shout out to Blade HQ for their description video on this knife and having so many blade options for it. This is why I bought it here. Keep up the good work guys
one of the strongest out there.

I got this knife on a deployment for the military, it is one of the strongest knives I've seen. I know you shouldn't use a knife as a pry bar but there were times I had to in the field and it held up to everything. strong knife, handle and lock. It's easy to open and use. This knife is a work horse.

I have been carrying this knife for a couple weeks now, it is great. I have used it for everything from cutting cardboard to tree limbs and heavy plastic. I use it for everything. Great knife, holds an awesome edge.

Owned and carried this one for about 2.5 years, finally sold it 'cause I wanted to get something else but it was a great knife. Never failed to fire, always very sharp, zero blade play, solid lock-up, pommel can break glass no problem. My only issue with it is it's not the biggest knife and I have large hands so the grip didn't fill my hand too well.
Great knife
