Durable, fast to deploy, and rugged! The Gerber Propel Automatic Pocket Knife 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. 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. Because lives depended on it working - every time. Designed and built in Portland, Oregon, this knife is a one-handed opening workhorse with a 420HC steel, partially serrated tanto blade that can cut through anything. A black oxide coating adds corrosion resistance and low reflectivity. The black, G-10 handle provides a sure grip and durability in a slim package. The Propel provides the unshakable confidence that can only come from carrying a knife you truly believe in.
