This is a knife you can rely on, no matter what situation you find yourself in. Premium design offers a black oxide S30V steel blade, a grippy G-10 handle, and innovative blade deployment that keeps safety front of mind.  


There’s no question you’ll be hard on this knife. Gerber built it in Portland, Oregon, using premium S30V steel to offer the most reliable edge possible. The partially serrated blade adds utility when cutting stubborn materials like stout nylon rope or tough plastics, but it’s the premium quality of the steel and durable nature of the G-10 composite handle that set this knife apart from others.


The smooth pivot of Gerber’s auto design offers seamless, one-handed opening, while the reliable plunge lock and safety switch secure the blade where you want it. Think easy, one-handed operation matched with a slim profile that sits comfortably in your pocket ideal for everyday carry.


Personal preference dictates how you carry your knife, so Gerber designed the Propel Auto with a three-way adjustable clip to customize the knife’s orientation in your pocket or on your belt. You can set it for tip-up or tip-down storage and left-hand or right-hand bias.
