Description
GB000118: Gerber 06 FAST - Tanto, Serrated
Gerber
 
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.

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!

Tough Enough.
I've been carrying this knife for about a week now, I bought it to use as a cheap beater at work instead of my Griptilian or Foresight. For the price, it isn't bad at all. Sure the 7CR steel is lacking, but it works for its intended purpose. I've beat the snot out of this knife and it's still ticking fine, I just strop it after I get home from work (I cut wire, twine, boxes, shrink wrap, and thin plastic) on a daily basis, I've had no problems with the lock, the assist is fine, it isn't super fast, but it isn't slow either. Zero blade play out of the box, but unfortunately only a tip up right hand clip. I bit the bullet in trying this blade, and I wasn't disappointed.

I love my FAST 06!
This was my self defense carry knife for a long time, and I still love it! The assisted opening still works well after all these years and, although slower than an auto-opening, it opens fairly easily with a single swipe of my thumb. I seldom use the knife for general tasks, because of the difficulty in sharpening a tanto and serrated blade. However, without abuse the blade has held up well for minor cutting tasks. The clip position means that the end of the knife protrudes from my pocket (so not very discreet), but it also means that my little finger hooks very comfortably around the knife when drawing, which makes for a speedy and controlled draw every time! Also, the guard ensures that there's no danger of fingers sliding forward onto the very sharp blade. The window / forehead breaker make for another useful tool in various crappy situations. I LOVE my FAST 06!
