The Gerber Covert Auto is an evolution of the Applegate-Fairbairn folder with the addition of fast automatic action at the press of a button. It has an over-sized release button for easy deployment even with gloves. A front mounted safety engages in both the open and closed positions for secure carry and use. The Covert features aluminum scales with grip enhancing grooves and stainless liners to assure the rigidity of the handle. Its removable deep carry clip allows convenient and discreet carry. Comfortable, practical, and reasonably priced, the Covert makes an excellent tactical knife choice.

Customer Reviews

Gerber Covert Auto
Glenn V. on Nov 27, 2018

This is one of the best automatics I have owned. No blade wobble, slick opening and darn good looking. May replace my EDC Bear Ops auto.

Legendary Gerber
Jeff D. on Jul 30, 2019

Received my Covert the other day and wanted to say how pleased I was with the Knife. I have always carried Gerber tools and knives. from the Muti-tool to the Guardian I have carried, used and relied on Gerber all my life thanks for a great piece of equipment!

Added to collection
David R. on Jan 5, 2018

I had to have the gray one for my collection. I have and use black versions of this knife and wanted the gray clone. Great knife

My new EDC
Tyler H. on Mar 14, 2018

Knife is well made and has great balance. Love the dark grey with the black blade. This is my new EDC. Gerber is always my go to brand.

Terry L. on Jun 27, 2019

This opens quick and with authority. The blade is tight and solid. It's sharp and ready to go. Will be retiring my assist open EDC with this knife. Love it.

edge grind is not the best
Daniel G. on Mar 4, 2020

This knife opens fast, its reliable and sharp. The only bad thing on mine was that it has a poor edge grind, it is not even like the bench made or spyderco knives.

love the style, hate the action
Doug B. on Aug 27, 2021

I bought this because of the style and I love the way it looks and the way it feels in the hand. It is very sharp but I expect that out of the box. However the opening is anemic at best. Ive opened it about 60 or so times and it does not seem to get any better. I even added a bit of zero friction lube out of desperation and I get no improvement. It never opens with authority and sometime is struggles to even lock in the open position. Ive put it back in the box and it will probably stay there for the foreseeable future. Unless I find a remedy for the sluggish action. This is the first auto that i have owned that was not a Benchmade and I gotta say I'm disappointed.
