In emergency situations it's crucial to think and act fast. When you only have one hand available, an automatic folding blade becomes your perfect tool and possibly your saving grace. Automatic folding blades are perfect for the fisherman taming a thrashing tuna, to a paratrooper tangled in suspension lines. Blade put several automatic folders through rigorous field tests and the Gerber Propel Downrange Auto passed with flying colors. "It's a better knife in almost every way…cuts paracord like thread, and opened cardboard boxes as if the boxes had zippers." It features a secure grip and stays safely locked in place. Gerber's Downrange is sure to get you out of any sticky situation.
