The Gerber 06 Auto features an over-sized release button for easy 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, and a contoured aluminum handle for a secure grip. 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. Because it's Gerber, you can trust this is a knife that can hold up to anything!

Love the weight, some would find heavy but I thought it felt solid and strong. Felt great in my hand, easy to control, solid lock. After more than 8 years of heavy use I lost it, left in a hotel room somewhere. Need to replace as soon as possible. I had the lost knife engraved "US Army 1980-2000" maybe there will be a miracle and it will be returned.
Durable strong rugged. Not the lightest knife but still my edc. Blade deployment was a little slow but may have been faster after broken in. I didn't feel like waiting so went ahead and installed the mega spring by knife kits. Now the action is crazy fast and I love the knife. Also love the high grip g-10 handle 's and glass breaker. Fits in hand perfect. Highly recommended
Chunky, beefy and unlike most automatics, no blade play. Like the glass breaker
