Building on the field-proven performance and fast, one-handed blade deployment of the long-popular 06 Auto knife, the Propel packs the same level of full size utility and durability in a slimmer, more pocket-friendly profile. Updated with a new OD Green handle and black oxide blade finish, it is the perfect addition to your arsenal.

An automatic knife needs to do many things well and a few things exceptionally – deploy consistently fast, be constructed to withstand daily abuse, and feel intuitively comfortable in hand. When Gerber set out to design the Propel, the process was peppered with critical feedback from military and law enforcement personnel – this wasn’t meant to be just another automatic knife.

The Propel was tasked with answering the needs of some of the most demanding, abusive, and unpredictable environments the world has to offer – it had to answer the questions that weren’t yet asked. Because lives depended on it working – every time. One might think that sounds like a tall order, and one would be right. Yet, it is fulfilled with durable materials, smart design, and an unrelenting focus on the end user. In the end, it provides the unshakable confidence that can only come from carrying a knife you truly believe in.

So I purchased this knife because I wanted a better sized EDC than the 06 Auto which is a beefy carry. I absolutely love this Propel it is an amazing design and I have beaten the crap out of the knife in the 4 months I have had it. The only complaint I have is the black oxide coating is wearing off, which took years to come off my 06 Auto.

I have been carrying this knife daily for about 2 months now. For a Higher end knife this thing should be b\able to keep an edge. This knife will not hold and edge for anything. The mechanism fails to fully open as well. This knife is junk.

Love this knife. I own to, one tan assisted open for work and this one for EDC. I like the feel and size. Thing is a tank! I just wish they offered the fine edge for the other colors. If they did I would have multiples of each! Let's go Gerber more fine edge propels!
