I carry this knife as part of my EDC. It is a great knife, very sharp, slick, and just looks elegantly bad-ass. My only complain is that it does not have a deep carry pocket clip.
Excellent auto knife! Love the look of this knife and the feel. Very robust and seems well built. I do wish Gerber would pay more attention to fit and finish. Blade grind, evenness, etc.
7/8/2018: Out of the box the knife was razor sharp capable of shaving hair. The action on the knife was smooth and locked into place tightly. Knife is significantly lighter than I imagined, considering I’ve carried the 06 Auto knife for over 9 years now(was issued for a deployment). Not sure this one will be as durable however it is still an all around good feeling knife. Was hesitant before ordering but glad I did! Good job Gerber on building a great knife!
