The 06 Auto features a drop-point S30V stainless steel blade that is 3.8 inches long and folds into an anodized aluminum handle with an olive drab Cerakote finish. Unfolded, the overall length of the knife is 8.7 inches long. The blade is released with an oversized blade-release button that allows the blade to unfold from the knife body without any assistance from the user.
The knife also features a lock that secures the blade in place when deployed. if the lock is engaged while the blade is folded, the auto-open feature is frozen and actuating the push-button deployment will not release the blade. The knife also features a striking pommel and a lanyard hole for easy carry.
This knife is available through Gerber's Pro Program, which sells gear to active-duty military and full-time first responders, veterans or the company's industry partners. Suggested retail price on the Gerber 06 Auto is $237.
