American made and ready for anything, this knife has a premium design that sets it apart. With a corrosion resistant S30V steel drop point blade anchored by a sturdy plunge lock, a striking pommel, and a reversible pocket clip, you are never unprepared.
The 06 Combat Folder is a knife that is designed for everyday use. This highly functional utility blade gets the job done right the first time. Whether in combat or tackling other mission essential tasks, soldiers can rely on the superior quality and functionality this knife delivers. The unique plunge lock design is easy to use when wearing gloves and provides an additional safety measure by keeping fingers clear from the blade while it closes.
Good stout knife, holds an edge well. After some use it becomes very easy to open. I bought one when it first came out as I had been begging Gerber to use the blade shape of the 06 Auto but in a manual version for us non special people. As others have stated the blade does strike the pommel in the closed position if its closed hard. I put some felt in handle to mitigate this but a bigger diameter stop pin or a smaller radius on the base of the blade where it interfaces with the stop pin would be a better solution.
The Gerber 06 Folder is absolutely amazing: solid, built with quality materials, and great ergonomics. I'd stack it up against and other hard use out there. I only wish Gerber would sell these at stores such as Bass Pro or Cabelas. These folders would quickly change the views of those that look down upon Gerber due to their Chinese made knives.
best knife ever, hands down.
i have used this robust knife to
1. cut though seat bealts
2. cut through denim jeans
3. cut rope
4. smash through car side window.
your knife is only limited to your imagination.
This knife looks cool and super tough, but why must you have milltary credentials (thats what you mean right) to purchase it?
This is the real deal, a real solid knife. Blew my mind when i saw the knife,when i actually held it in my hand. Amazed.
