Covert Auto - Serrated

Known as the international best-in-class folding tactical knives, the Covert family takes another leap forward this year with the addition of the Covert Auto. Our popular Applegate-Fairbairn S30V steel blade folder gets quicker with a new spring-loaded auto release that rapidly deploys the S30V tactical blade with the push of a button. The addition of this knife is a perfect way to complete a collection, while also owning a perfectly balanced auto-opening knife. Proudly made in U.S.A.

I expected more precise machining since this is the top-of-the-line Gerber, made in USA.
The 2 torx screws for the pocket clip protrude out from the body, making sharp angles that will wear down material or flesh that it contacts.
The gimping on both sides near the fire button is again more sharp angles that are a bother to feel in the open position and especially in the closed. A sharp right angle on the inner walls on the gimping.
These right angles need to be smoothed into a more rounded pattern. Heavy use will wear out the fingers on the grip and gimping that are supposed to help control the knife.
On the plus side, it is a tight build and not as sloppy as the SW1600. This Gerber has good feedback from the safety and automatic action. And a solid feel to it.
I do like the deep pocket clip. And again, in the pocket, resting my thumb on the handle, I can feel the sharp edges of the gimping.
For the price and being Gerber's flagship product, as well as "made in the USA", I expected better attention to details.
I am a bit hesitant to buy the Gerber 06 at this time, because of the flaws in this Gerber.
I do like the Applegate Covert, so it is, at best, a 4 star product to me.

#1 feature, MADE IN THE USA.

I have used this knife in a variety of situations, both on and off duty. The serrated edge works well to cut off plastic restraints as well as cutting through cord, rope and seat belts.

The overall package is solid and well balanced no matter what grip I use on the knife.

Although I am armed everywhere I go, I keep this knife with me as a weapon of last resort.

This knife rugged enough for whatever you are likely to encounter but also delicate enough for up close detailed work.

This knife should last a lifetime and still be worthy to pass on to another worthy LEO.

5 Deep Cover Detective, Narcotics/Vice "Bluto" - AUG 6, 2014

This is possibly the best blade I've ever carried on or off duty. It is light weight, very concealable and opens quickly. Also, it was razor sharp right out of the box. Made in the U.S.A. means a lot to me and the men I work with and Gerber delivered well on this one.

Great blade...perfectly proportioned and easy to carry. Love the opening speed and ruggedness. Highly recommended.

5 Flying soldier JL - MAR 19, 2014

This knife is incredible. It opens faster than any automatic I have ever seen. You actually have to have a good grip on the handle or the kinetic energy of the blade will snatch the knife right out of your hand. the blade is RAZOR sharp. The point, straight blade and serration, makes the knife useful for any situation you need it for. The only thing I was a little surprised of was it is quite a bit smaller than I thought it would be, but makes it pretty easy to be in your pocket it's very slender, light and doesn't take up your entire pocket. Hope this review is helpful.

I've had this knife for a couple of years now, still opens extremely fast even after heavy daily use. Sometimes it opens so fast it wants to fly out of my hand. Holds point without having to sharpen and form. Retains edge very well. I love it, a true extension of my body.

I have always been a fan of the Applegate Fairbairn blade since the first one I bought in 02, I have always had a Gerber Applegate folder in my pocket and believe the this one is the best knife Ive owned to date.

As a former Paratrooper that has carried numerous types and brands of auto knives in garrison, the field, and on deployments I like this one the best! It's very fast opening, strong, and very sharp! Great locking mechanism and easy to sharpen up when needed. This is definately worth the buy!

I got the knife today. I love it! I have carried a Kershaw Tactical Blur for the last year and I think this is a fitting replacement. Its a pretty big knife! I was surprised by how hefty the grip is. I like it!

Very nice Auto, except the one sent me has the outer edge protruding several mil. from the handle when closed and blade is very off center when viewed in the closed position.
I just sent it back to Gerber for repair, a fix, or replacement.
Lets see if Ger
