Sleek, stealthy, and reliable'sounds good right? The Gerber Propel assisted open tactical knife is all of those things and more.
Designed and built in Portland, Oregon, the Gerber Propel AO was made using critical feedback from military and law enforcement personnel. This feedback and the countless years of experience led to the creation of an all-purpose tactical knife that can hold up to long term use, while remaining easy to handle. When you look at the Gerber Propel, you will notice the slim design. This feature allows you to easy conceal or store your knife.
Tactical knives are going to see a variety of uses so 420 high carbon steel was used on the blade to give you a dependable edge. 420HC steel is a popular choice for knife blades due to the fact that it is easy to sharpen and is resistant to corrosion. Combine that with the corrosion resistant black oxide coating and you have a super durable blade. This coating also provides a low reflectivity surface, so that if you need to be discreet while on the job, you can be. The tanto style blade is 3.5 inches and is partially serrated for slicing and cutting tough surfaces.
Safety and reliability are key when choosing a knife to use on the job so Gerber has implemented a plunge lock and safety switch that fix the blade in place, open or closed. This tactical knife also comes with a black G-10 handle. G-10 is a fiberglass based material that is extremely hard and lightweight. It is ideal for tactical knife handles because of its ruggedness. The G-10 handle on this Gerber knife also improves the grip so you can always be in control.
To make this tactical knife more practical, Gerber added their Assisted Opening 2.0 to this knife design. This allows for a seamless, one-handed blade deployment. An adjustable, three position pocket clip allows for customizable stowage so you can hook it to your pocket or belt in the most comfortable position for you.
If you are looking for a reliable and durable tactical knife, then the Gerber Propel AO is definitely worth a try. The versatility and quality is unmatched. Get you Gerber Propel Assisted Open Tactical Knife today!
