GB000118: Gerber 06 FAST - Tanto, Serrated
Tactical and tough. That's what you get with the 06 FAST, a quick opening knife with G-10 handles for extra grip when wet. The Tanto shaped blade is designed for thrusting.

F.A.S.T. Technology
In 2005, Gerber introduced the proprietary blade opening concept - Forward Action Spring Technology - or F.A.S.T. Using one hand, the blade is opened approximately ten degrees, allowing the spring to drive the blade lightening-quick the rest of the way into the open position. This exclusive mechanism was developed by acclaimed Oregon custom knife maker Butch Vallotton, whose name graces one of Gerber's line of Assisted Opening Knives.

Nice Tanto Blade
Blade is very versatile and holds its edge. Thumb lock mechanism was very rough and jammed often until lubed. Assist is good but the thumb knob could be a little larger or have a better shape to initiate the assist.

Not Bad
This knife isn't bad. I always have mine in my pocket and use it at work regularly cutting straps, shrink wrap, and plastic. Out of the box the blade was very sharp, but I feel like the quality of the metal is really lacking. It's very easy to wear the blade down after repeated use compared to other knives. The handle is sturdy and feels good, but the clip isn't very useful. After a few years the action still feels great, but there is a slight lateral movement to the blade. Overall I'm satisfied with everything aside from the quality of the metal. Great for self defense, and light duty, but not a great knife for work.

Unbeatable Products, Uncompromising Service!
I recently purchased a Gerber '06 F.A.S.T, G-10 Black, 3.8" Tanto Combo. I'm a former Special Operatations Soldier. I served 16 years. How I wish there were '06's back 'in-the-day' AND a customer oriented company like 'K.C.'. The '06 is a superlative knife. It's my "Go to" knife. The handles are virtually unbreakable, as its accidentally fallen from my vehicle & run over without blemish. The blade is s30v.... Need I say more (2nd best blade metal in the world!) it holds an edge even with monumental abuse. No rust when it's left in the rain. This knife takes the abuse of vehicles, use as a pummeling device, as a screwdriver, it cuts everything with exception of metals (other than aluminum). I would recommend it to anyone from a collector to fair-weather-outsider to an enthusiast!
