Gerber just recently released an updated version of it’s 06 auto knife. This new version has some really great upgrades. First, the speed of the blade is significantly increased. Second, they lightened the load. By making the handle of CNC machined G-10, the weight of the entire knife has been reduced significantly. The third thing Gerber did is to make the pommel on the end an integrated piece of the knife. You can use this sharp corner to break glass in an “I need to get out” type of situation. This is an absolutely fantastic automatic knife. Made entirely in the USA, it has great new features. Comfortable to hold and use, this Gerber auto knife is one to consider.
