For the money this Auto is hard to beat. It has excellent ergonomics, excellent action, and solid lockup. If you need an auto that you can trust, this will serve you faithfully.

Pros:
S30v steel. pretty short and sweet, not much to say other than it's one of the best steels you can buy

Made in the USA. As an American machinist this kinda hits close to home for me so I'm proud to carry American quality in my pocket

Lockup: it's solid automatic lockup. All knives with a plunge lock have a little bit. This is less than usual but it's still there.

Action: it swings open with authority! Strong spring opens hard and doesn't suffer from "auto bounce" because the end of the spring tension is clearly well past the point of lockup.

Clip:its not deep but it also doesn't make the knife protrude too far from the pocket. I like it. It's comfortable, and it's not so tight that it's difficult to get onto pocket.

Finishing: I can't really say much here. It's pretty much perfect. The anodizing is done perfectly, the stone washing is consistent, even the red dot is perfectly painted.

Price: I paid $125 for an automatic with S30v steel. I don't really feel there's much more to say about this.

Cons:
The action: I know I see it as a pro but some may not. It really does open HARD!!!! Not a knife to hand a non-knife person. It will come out of their hand if you don't warn to hold on.

Clip: again I see it as a pro but some may not like how high up it sits.

Price: lastly and again something that doesn't bother me. It is $125. You may not be willing to pay that for a knife and that's perfectly reasonable. But you really are getting what you paid for.

Verdict: for me it's a 10/10 but your milage may vary. One thing Gerber has always done right is autos and I'm glad to see them making some less tactical ones. I would definitely recommend
