I've had this knife for about a year, and it really hits a sweet spot of size and usability, especially for an automatic. For one thing, it's built like a tank, with the strongest spring set I have ever seen (I have 15 other autos from seven other manufacturers, and this spring is the strongest of all.) The lockup is inelegant but precise -- the "thunk" this sucker makes shocks me every time. I have no blade play whatsoever, and I've used this to cut sisal rope, old tires, cardboard, and I've even batoned the thing (note: don't do this!) I did not expect to like this knife -- I bought it on a whim -- but I honestly love it. It's a great hard duty, aluminum handled, premium steel automatic knife.
Not great

Got a good price on it from BladeHQ but wasn't really impressed with the knife. The push button is way too high and the blade bounces back off the stop when it deploys. I own a lot of autos but this Gerber doesn't impress me at all.
Quit working...

This is my first auto, so I canít compare but all in all, I like it. Solid, good quality, has a nice kick when opening and great look.
A solid USA Made auto

Ik Gerber has a rep of being a mixed bag however Iíve been a fan of their USA made autos of the past and that stands true with the empower. Good quality with a quick, snappy action and solid lockup. If you want a USA made auto w/o it costing you an arm and a leg this is a solid choice.
not a quality knife

i was dissapointed. not a bad knife by any means but i was expecting alot for that price. ive bought knives for a similar price there were alot better quality. everything about it is acceptable. after a week of carry its not very ergonomic. the handle feels much larger then the play. almost the same price as my spyderco pm 2. no where near the same quality.
