Pros: Ease of Opening, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Not the fastest but a work horse.
This won't win fastest knife but is hands down a great knife. Its beefy enough for rough jobs and can handle moderate abuse. I like the option to pocket or sheath carry. One hand operation comes in very handy in a multitude of situations. It is big enough for my hand which I also like. Smaller knives may be easier to carry but most cause fumbling. That's not the case here. Big enough for secure grip and ease of deployment.

Best damn EDC knife ever.
I carried this knife for close to 15 years. I mean every day carry. I used and abused this knife. Used it to jump the solenoid on my old Ford. I cut everything from boxes to wire to tin. After over a decade of hard daily use. The knife showed its wear and tear but still functioned as designed. After 12 years it wouldn't open properly. So i took it apart cleaned it and made minor adjustments. After 14 years i had to repeat. I lost screws, and asked Gerber for new screws. Gerber sent me a brand new knife. P.s this knife saved my life on two occasions.

Form meets function
Great knife. A must have for collectors. Always been a fan of Gerber Knives and this is no exception. Beautiful to display but no less a beast of a knife. Wouldn't think twice about taking this knife off the shelf and into whatever situation you might need it in. This is one heavy, tough, cutting machine that also looks great and performs smoothly. The only thing I might change on this knife would be to beef up the spring some. The action is smooth and fast, but seems off compared to how solid this knife is.

Extremely pleased
I have purchased over a dozen knives over the last couple of years for edc. Some are better than others as far as quality, comfort in pocket, pocket clip tension and design, ease of opening and closing, and overall balance and comfort in use. This is the best one yet. I didn’t think Gerber could compete with Spiderco, CRKT, Benchmade... but this was my best purchase yet. It was criticized in video for a slow open but over time I actually appreciate the slower swing, and the longer blade may explain that. Great knife; will be looking for more Gerber products.

06 Auto
I was impressed when I first took it out of the box but upon first try with the knife, the blade didn't open all the way. Played with it a quite a bit to see if it would loosen a bit upon repeated use but soon realized it would not. Was not a problem to fix as it just took an adjustment of the small screw that is located just in front of the lock to get it to fire completely. I also noticed the blade is not centered in the handle when closed. It doesn't actually touch the handle but still, would expect the blade to be centered on knife of this quality. To increase functionality of the knife, I ended up doing a complete disassembly, wiped down the internals, put a dab of grease on the part that touch and reassembled it. Once I got the screws adjusted right where the tension provided the best operation, I removed each screw and applied blue Loctite and tightened the screws to just where the knife functioned the fastest. Now the blade "snaps" out with force and it has minimal side to side movement when open. While the quality of the parts is excellent I I love the S30V blade, one would expect to not have to rework the knife to get it to function correctly. I understand that it is more of a utility knife by design but if I could change one thing on the build, it would be to have ball bearings for the blade to ride on as opposed to it riding on metal to metal. Knives I have that are built with ball bearings for the blade to ride on open smoother and super fast. Could be Gerber just needed to keep the cost down or maybe they decided not to go with ball bearings because use in fine sand might hamper the operation with ball bearings since the knife was designed for use by the military as a utility knife. Anyway, I gave it only three stars because I had to rebuild it and make adjustments just to get it to perform as it should have upon arrival.

Pros: None
Cons: Overall Quality
Got a lemon.
Just opened the box, first push of the button and it barely opens. Screw used to tighten blade tension appears to be damaged and there is a lot of play when the blade does lock. Spring seems weak compared to my original 06 Auto. Not impressed at all. Poor quality control.
