Gerber Downrange AO Knife
The Gerber Propel Downrange Assisted Open Knife is a tactical folder knife with a full size blade that was designed by the Gerber company using a combination of the expertise of United States military personnel and Gerber's own experiences in crafting technical knives.
If you're looking for a high quality American made knife, look no further than the Gerber Propel Downrang tactical knife. Handcrafted in Portland, Oregon, this tactical knife features a high quality S30V steel partially serrated blade that has the ability to cut through stubborn materials like rope or plastic. Designed for lifelong durability, the desert tan G-10 composite handle that was added to this technical knife provides you with a good grip, comfort, and a color that is easily camouflaged with military uniforms.
One of the best rated features of this Propel Downrange AO knife is the addition of Gerber's Assisted Opening 2.0 mechanism, designed by custom knife maker Butch Vallaton, that allows for quick and easy one handed opening. When you're ready to slip your knife back in your pocket, just use the reliable plunge and lock safety switch to secure the blade. An additional tactical element added by Gerber is the black oxide coating featured on the blade giving you a stealth advantage that a stainless steel blade would not. Additionally, the black oxide coating provides corrosion resistance that adds lifelong durability to this everyday carry knife.
Completely customizable, the Gerber Propel AO can be carried tip-up, tip-down storage, and left-hand or right-hand bias thanks to the three-way adjustable clip that Gerber added to this tactical knife.
This Gerber Propel Tactical Knife was designed to meet all of the requirements of an everyday carry knife, it easily fits in your hand and your pocket and features a slim, discreet profile despite being a full size technical knife.
This knife is proudly built in the United States, in Portland, Oregon. Buy the Propel Knife today!
