Gerber drew on the experience of U.S. military personnel and its own expertise crafting technical knives and tools to develop the Propel Downrange AO knife. The result is a tactical folder with assisted opening and a full-size blade that's as easy to handle and carry as it is durable and capable in the line of duty. The Propel Downrange AO is built with S30B steel to offer the most reliable edge possible and a partially serrated blade that adds utility when cutting stubborn materials. The smooth pivot of Gerber’s Assisted Opening 2.0 mechanism offers seamless, one-handed opening, while the reliable plunge lock and safety switch secure the blade where you want it. With multiple ways to carry this knife you are able to set it up for your personal preferences.
