This Covert Auto model has a stonewash finished CPM-S30V stainless steel blade with a plain edge and a Tactical Gray aluminum handle.

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.

Great knife!!
Ronni B.
Awesome knife! light weight, good steel, good handle material, Deep pocket carry clip. only down side is the tip down (cant be tip up) and the lanyard hole is basically pointless. Lastly, if your going to buy this knife you HAVE to sharpen it yourself because out of box the blade is not able to cut paper or shave hair. Don't use a belt sharpening system though as I tried that and ruined the tip. Customer service was shady. I sent them my knife and a month later they said they never got it. I complained until they sent me a new one. Oddly enough they knew exactly what knife to send without me telling them. weird because they only way they could've known that was if they got my old knife with the paper I filled out because I never gave them the info of my address or knife over the phone!! so watch out and save your tracking numbers when dealing with customer service!!
Good Attempt
This knife has a lot going for it. The design is elegant, the steel is great, it's made here in the US of A, and the opening is definitely handy. However, there are a few major misses I feel keep the knife from being a five star product, at least for me. First of all, the blade is sluggish in deployment. This is more of a QC complaint than anything, because I know these have a range of speeds and some are snappy, I just didn't end up with one of those. This is minor though; the blade hasn't ever failed to lock up or anything, it's just no Protech Godfather (but then it doesn't cost like one either). The next issue is also one of personal preference, but it is important for many people nonetheless. That being the clip...It's a nice clip fundamentally, being very deep carry and having flush screws, but it's tip down only, which I'm not a huge fan of. I knew this going in and decided I could live with it, but it would have been nice to see a reversible clip. Finally, the most important issue with this knife, the edge. When I got mine it wouldn't even cut copy paper, which is fairly easy. Turns out the entire edge was just a burr so it was basically folded over and completely dull. Once sharpened, though, the blade holds a nice edge.
Well Made-But Take Note.

This knife is well made-combat capability is unquestionable-blade design superb together with overall construction excellent-safety control included.Topping it off w/"Made In USA." My observations of operation:this knife is unlike other autos some from different countries. The opening is slow compared to many others of similar design such as the "Russian Mikov." So Far So Good; however-faultless deployment. I have yet to find a knife that is 5 stars in my book. This comes close with the only 2 criticisms of the knife- "opening" which fires slower than many others and the safety which could be a little "stiffer". This is trivial since I'm picky. I carry this knife on duty now as a 1st Responded. I would trust this knife in any situation!!- A final plus-light weight and streamlined you barely know it's there together with a strong clip.
