Gerber – 06 AUTO : 10TH Anniversary Knife

Coming July 1st, Gerber is releasing a 10th Anniversary version of their 06 AUTO.

To honor the heritage and time-tested durability of the 06 Automatic family of knives, Gerber introduces a special, commemorative edition of this military favorite. This knife celebrates a decade of service, developed specifically to support American service members deploying globally. With hundreds of thousands issued to Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines over the years, the iconic platform is a familiar favorite to many.

-An Olive Drab Cerakote® coated aluminum represents the Battle Dress Uniform (BDU) of American troops deploying early in OEF and OIF.
-A Stone Washed, Fine Edge, S30V blade pays homage to the unrelenting durability of the platform, battle tested globally.
-Unique laser mark. To commemorate 10 years of service, the laser engraving features a reverse flag. The reverse American flag originates from the action of early US cavalry and infantry carrying the flag into battle. Always charging forward, the flag would be seen with the stars in front and stripes flowing behind. Today, Army Regulation 670-1 addresses the application and wear of the flag on the uniform, ensuring that the “star field faces forward, or to the flag’s own right”. Rich in historical symbolism, the reverse flag represents the will and bravery of those deployed in service of the United States.

It is also available directly through Gerber’s ‘PRO Program’ for active duty military and law enforcement

  4. Went ahead and registered for the PRO program. They pass on a significant savings, wow!

    The anniversary special is neat, I know that model has been put into the hands of many US infantrymen.

    I wish I had the money available for it.

    Got the Auto ’06 in 2009 as part of a deployment package. I still have it. Decent knife. Strong. Much better than the Gerber MP600 issued multitool which breaks pretty easily compared to the Leatherman or Swiss Army multitool.
