Constructed with an ultra-sharp blade and an easy to grip handle, the Gerber Propel AO Knife is a durable, all-purpose tactical knife. The tanto-style blade is crafted from 420HC steel, and is partially serrated for cutting and slicing through tough materials, such as nylon rope and canvas. A black oxide blade coating resists corrosion and greatly reduces reflection to maintain a low profile for covert operations. Gerber's Assisted Opening 2.0 design allows the knife to be activated with just one hand, and the plunge lock and safety switch hold the blade in place, open or closed. The handle is made from black G-10 material for maximum durability and superior grip. When the knife isn't being used, use the three-position pocket clip for easy stowing. To ensure quality, this knife is backed by Gerber's Lifetime Warranty.
