Gerber’s long-popular 06 Auto gave rise to the brand’s Propel knife — also automatic and also designed for years of reliable utility. After perfecting the Propel using feedback from military and law enforcement personnel, Gerber took everything they learned and put it into a newly styled model, the Empower. With military-grade functionality, the Empower’s sleek design and minimalist styling will appeal to the EDC crowd looking for something solid — and solidly attractive.
The blade is 3.25 inches of black oxide-coated S30V steel, housed in an anodized aluminum handle with electroformed handle scales for grip. The automatic open utilizes a plunge lock and safety slide to keep the knife open when you need it and closed when you don’t. A reversible clip gives you tip-up or tip-down carry options and the smooth finish overall won’t tear up your pockets. Made in their Portland, Oregon factory, the Empower is like a proven fighter in dress uniform. – Shop Now
