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.

Cons: None
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!

Pros:
Cons:
Generally nice
Generally, this knife has a great in hand feel and weight and the blade shape is excellent. The assisted opening mechanism is awkward and I think it would probably be better if it had no assisted opening mechanism at all but I can live with it. When you start pushing the stud with your thumb it takes a little pressure to get started and then it kinda takes off but not usually enough to open all the way. It can get ahead of your thumb and if you keep pressing you might press into the blade instead of catching up with the stud again but it still has another 10 degrees or so to get it all the way open. So you can see what I mean when I say it might be better without that and you just push all the way to open it. But other than that, great feel and weight and blade shape.
