Customer Reviews

Serious Tactical Carry
Robert B. on Jun 23, 2021

This is one heavy duty knife, no wobble in open or closed position. The action is very healthy right out of the box, no added lube. This thing is heavy and large for the average EDC but if you need real power it fits the bill. Mine wasn’t as sharp out the box as my Buck or Benchmade but didn’t take much to change that. This could wind up one of my very favorites. It’s an exceptional buy.

Awesome Knife
MICHAEL H. on Aug 16, 2021

I received a 06 Auto in the Marines. Took it with me for 2 tours in Iraq. Loved this Knife. I had it for years and I used it for everything. It was so beat up and still worked perfectly. I was in a car accident and it disappeared. I was so disappointed and never replaced it. I finally did and regret waiting so damn long. This is an EDC that you can beat to hell out of and it will not let you down.

Iconic blade,
Brett S. on Jul 22, 2018

My new EDC blade, very pleased with the quality of the 06 auto I bought the drop point fine edge only wish they had this blade style with g10 handles, that's the only negative about this knife is that the tanto blade comes in a g10 version but not this one. Deploying the blade is fast n powerful and the knife feels good in the hand, it's heavy and lets you know just by holding it that you have quality in your hand, I don't have unlimited income so I saved up to buy this and im so glad I finally got 1 for a fair price and free shipping from blade hq, thank you.

Great Knife
John C. on Nov 2, 2018

Got my first one as a issue in the military, went through three deployments, The knife took a beating!!! and still worked every time I needed it and it was a lot. When I retired the knife was stolen and now I am replacing it with the same model. Great workmanship, and durability. keep it going GERBER.

Awesome knife!!
Nolan H. on Sep 13, 2017

This is a rock solid knife!!! Firing was a little slow at first but simply needed some break in time!! Feels really good in the hand. I would definitely recommend!!!

Excellent Quality
Jay M. on Feb 11, 2019

My husband received this knife while on his first deployment, had it for years, then "lost" it on his most recent deployment (even the military contains shady people unfortunately). He adored the thing, and he was really upset when it went missing. Through all the years that he owned it, it was always on him. It never faltered, and he had it sharpened through Gerber multiple times to maintain the blade. I'm so glad that I found this website!! I was able to order the exact knife and even get it engraved (which looks beautiful and was well worth the small additional cost)! He is beyond thrilled with it! Thanks so much!

Best Pocket Knife
JAMIE C. on Mar 11, 2022

Really impressive! Love the weight. The blade deploys smoothly and locks with certainty. Had a few weeks and immediately ordered a second one as a backup.

Toughest pocket knife ever!
GERRIT D. on Jul 9, 2021

I bought this knife after a lot of research, I’m a farmer/rancher that needed the toughest pocket knife I could find for edc. When I first bought this knife it hit the road asphalt with the blade open at 80mph (don’t ask why), found it in the ditch, only cosmetic scrapes. Sharpened it and it was good as new. I’d recommend this knife 100% to those that work hard with their tools.

Andrew R. on Jan 5, 2018

The first thing about this knife is that it is SOLID! It has survived 2 tours to Iraq and still works well. My only complaint is the action isn't the best. But overall it is super sturdy and feels good in the hand.

Doesn't Come Super Sharp
Dewei L. on Jul 18, 2021

As title, the factory blade edge is pretty thick, hence not super sharp. It is a good all-around knife, but if you want it super sharp like some of the Microtech double edge daggers, you'll need to do some work sharpening it.

A great knife but...
DJ W. on Jun 21, 2018

A great knife. Solid construction. Came razor sharp over a month ago and its still razor sharp. I oiled the knife up with gun oil before deployment. Deployment is really fast and hard after oilling. Negatives? It didn't come in with a sheath. I bought it under the assumption it would have come with one.
