Let's try this in the right forum now. Does anyone have any experience with the automatic knives from Gerber? I was looking at these and was wondering if they held up as well as the spring-assisted ones do. Additionally, if these are not quite up to par do you have any suggestions for an automatic that are up to par. The main purpose for this knife would be a combat environment and used as a back up to my main combat knife. Also another poster to stick with the Benchmade, Microtech, Protech, ero Tolerance, and Spyderco for autos. Any input on this would be appreciated. Thanks! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
