Backed by the speed of F.A.S.T technology, this compact knife is designed to partner quick deployment with reliable ease of use. The tough titanium coated blade teams up with a superior G-10 handle, proving that size isn't always everything.
Like its big brother, the new Mini Covert gets quicker with new F.A.S.T. technology. The Mini Covert Fast delivers one-hand opening for quick deployment of the titanium-coated blade, and G-10 handles give you a tacky grip. Slim and sleek to carry.
Don't wash it or the screws will come loose. I forgot and left it in the pocket of my pants. When it came out of the wash several screws were loose and some were missing. Totally unusable until it's repaired.
Great little knife, It is everything I have come to expect from Gerber. It has a very positive lock, both in the open position and closed. I have no worries about it "popping" open in my pocket. The rough finish on the handle ensures a good grip, even when wet. The partially serrated blade cuts through rope or seat belts quickly. this is my new every day carry. Great job Gerber. I would definitely buy another one.
Wonderful piece of tactical equipment. I did not hold onto this long as I turned it over to Secret Service to see the President on a rainy Memorial Day in Illinios at the Abraham Lincoln Veteran Cemetary. However, I've been meaning to replace it. Well worth the investment even when only used once.
Only had knife for a month. Sharp as a razor out of the package. Four stars because the lock mechanism is hard to engage when knife is open. Still, perfect size for me. Love the FAST Technology. The more I use it the easier it gets. Recommend this knife. Blade is solid with no movement when open. Stays shut when lock is engaged. Excellent design. Thanks Gerber.
I am an internet installer, and this has been my daily driver for the last three years. this knife has been sharpened and dulled more times than I can count. It has opened flat head screws, cut hundreds of Cat5 cables, opened tubes of silicone, anything you can think of. It still works well, but needs some well deserved TLC. Just recently it had a bad run-in with a tube of super glue, and it seems to have hurt the mechanism, but it even still opens and closes well. The lock, mechanism, or belt clip have never failed, and the grip still has most of its tactile feel.(it spent its life in a pocket with keys..) I have never oiled or maintained this knife. It is the same as when I got it. It came fairly dull, and I sharpened it right away.
All in all, Amazing. Never had a knife last this long.
To initially open this knife I had to use a screwdriver to budge the button. Then every few tries the button would move halfway down on its own and prevent opening. Often for no apparent reason it was hard to open and I had to use 2 hands (again defeating the purpose). I am going to return it to Walmart.
awesome knife. i really like the look and feel but was disappointed on how dull it came out of the package. was embarrassed when struggled to cut some cord in front of a co-worker with it and he said the tip looked blunt.
OK KNIFE,NO SIDEPLAY IN BLADE,BUT THE BLADE MOVES BACK AND FORWARD! NOT VERY SHARP FROM THE FACTORY!
I have carried and used this knife every day for a year now, and the blade is still sharp. The handle is durable and has a good grip. The assisted opening action is smooth and the safety is sound. I would definitely recommend this product to someone who is looking for a solid everyday cary knife.
Blade lock jams open and can't close knife with out a fight. Knife often open while clipped to pocket...
I like the concept, the blade size and shape. For the blade size its a bit thick and heavy. However, the assisted opening is so rough it doesn't open. I'll have to disassemble and clean or fix it. Great potential, disappointing execution.
Just got a brand new replacement knife for the one that failed. Thanks for the great customer support Gerber. Hope to have better luck with this one.
Owned this knife for about 6 months. I used to love it until it fell apart, and no I didn't abuse it. One or more internal screws failed and the case separated. I heard Gerber has great customer service, I'm waiting to find out because I sent it back under warranty. Waiting to see what they do.
I work as a full time paramedic and this knife is the perfect size to carry at work. Easily opens one handed and the serrations are great with tougher materials. I've carried this knife with me every shift for 2 years and never had a single problem with the action or had screws fall out. Love it.
I definitly love the serie. I own the usa made bigger auto with its S30V blade and the anniversary model of the 'big' folder but this mini is my daily companion. I read often things about the steel but, with years of use, i have to say that it's ok for me. You quickly obtain very good edge and able to reach polished finish close to the ats34 one if you properly know how to use leathers. Even more 'stealth' looked than its bigger bros with its g10 squarred handles, the notches allows a real deep carry in the pocket (this kind of clip works only with this design). I was first afraid with the durability of the spring, but it finally works just flawlessly well. The blade have been adjusted by the scew , a bit , once in 2 years of daily use. Very good knife for the money.
I have the Combat folder and wanted something smaller for daily carry, the mini covert FAST fits the bills nicely. The size is good in your hand but not too large or bulky in your pocket or waistband. I was concerned the tacky handles would be sticky like a Hogue pistol grip but it isn't, just good micro checkering. Only downside is the action was rough out of the box. I had to clean and oil to make it function as it should. I would have paid double if this was Made in the USA like the full auto versions.
