New Gerber Propel Downrange Folding Knives

Missing from SOFIC this year were many of the knife manufacturers I normally visit.  I think Gerber Legendary Blades was the only maker I saw at the show.

After he showed me the Downrange Tomahawk, the Gerber Rep said they had new folders for 2013.  The Gerber Propel knives have 3.5″ blades and G-10 scales.  With overall lengths of 8.52″ and weights at 4.28 oz’s, the Propels are solid tools.  There are versions in black or tan G-10.  You can also choose between an assisted opening model or a full automatic model.

  • Designed and Built in Portland, OR
  • S30V Blade Steel or 420HC
  • Tanto Style Partially Serrated Blade
  • Black Oxide Coating for Corrosion Resistance
  • Desert Tan or Black G-10 Handle Scales
  • Pommel with Lanyard Hole
  • Automatic Opening or Assisted Opening
  • Plunge Lock and Safety Switch
  • Three-Position Pocket Clip

The Gerber Rep told me that the Propel knives would be shipping this week.  Though he did not have current pricing, I saw the tan colored automatic version for sale online for $139.00.  These knives are rugged and Made in the USA.
