Taking critical feedback from military personnel and applying decades of knife design experience, Gerber built the Downrange Propel AO: a full-size tactical knife with a slim handle profile. Gerber understands a daily driver like the Downrange Propel needs to handle anything, so its S30V steel blade can do it all. The desert tan G-10 composite handle creates a durable knife that’s low in bulk, blends in and is easy to handle. Gerber’s Assisted Opening 2.0 design delivers flawless, one-handed operation. And you can count on the plunge lock and safety switch to keep the blade secure under pressure. The black oxide blade coating keeps a stealth profile.
