Too big for an EDC, but there's something about it I like nonetheless
Another is a series of 5 minute reviews by Jim, so called because they're only 5 minutes of reading for you (but obviously I put in a heck of a lot more time to create it).

Make: Gerber
Model: 06 Drop Point (Aluminum Handle)
Price Paid: $150

First Thoughts...
Initial Impressions: Huge. Beefy knife, in every sense of the word; handles, blade, deploy button and lock slide switch are large. Made to emulate a 'tactical' knife.
Packaging: Above average. Box is sized quite well to the knife. Silkscreened company logo and name on almost every side, with a serial number tag on the back.
Accessories: Padded nylon pouch with belt loop that snaps closed. Documentation: Double sided sheet that has open/close instructions on one side and warranty information on the other.
Observed Quality: Good. Everything seemed as though it was put together well, with little that I would consider in need of attention.

Sharpness: Blade, very good. Serrations, OK. Slicing printer paper was no challenge for the edge of the blade, but the serrations could have used some more work at the factory.
Speed of Deployment: Slow. The blade just kind of meanders out, without any sense of urgency.
Solidity of Lockup: Very good. Downward pressure on the blade resulted in almost no movement whatsoever.
Blade Wobble When Deployed: Acceptable. There was a bit more then I would like for a knife designed as a 'tactical' solution, but it was nowhere near as bad as the tanto version of this knife I bought.

Feel: Solid. No flex, no bend, no weakness. The aluminum was not slippery because of the diagonal grooves cut into both sides. Fit my hand very well with no hot spots.
Size: Large. This is a robust knife that won't get lost in your hand even when wearing gloves. An EDC knife it's not, unless you're the type of person who isn't concerned about being obvious.
Impressions: T shaped handle provides a big index finger choil and thumb ramp, so choking up for detail work will never be a problem. The length and width combined was a nice fit for hands the size of mine. Jimping is about perfect, in both feel and location on the handle.

Clip Strength: Very good. Strong and taunt, yet not overly so. It did prove a bit difficult to get over the seam of my jeans pocket, but it might get better with time. You'd be hard pressed to lose it, that's for sure. It's held on by 3 screws so the clip isn't going anywhere.
Carry Options: Tip up, left or right.

Value: Good. $150 is a lot for a knife, but this is a lot of knife so consider it a wash.
Buy Again: Possibly. I can't really use it as an EDC, but for some reason I still like it.
Overall Assessment: For the person who wants a big solid knife, Gerber has something for you. A wallflower it's not. The quality could be better, especially when you consider the price, but it's certainly worth a look. Now, if they could just sell a version without the serrations...

Best knife
I received this knife as a gift from my command while on deployment. My whole unit got them, and a friend and I sat around sharpening and honing the blade to a razor's edge. It's a hefty tool, quite capable of holding a very sharp edge. The lock and release button feel stout and secure, not flimsy or cheap in the least. I don't remember a sheath coming with mine. I'd trust my life to this knife and am only sad that I lost it on campus barely a year after leaving active service. Thankfully, I can now purchase and carry this knife legally in my state now and fully plan to get another to use as an EDC. This knife has set the standard for how I judge all other non-fixed bladed knives.
