Gerber Auto Covert Automatic Knife
Gerber Applegate Fairbairn Covert Auto w/plain blade and Camo handle
I have waited years to get this knife at a decent price, and I'm glad I did. This is the sharpest knife I've ever received from any vendors ANYWHERE, ANYTIME.

Gerber Auto Covert Automatic Knife
Good knife best value

Shun Sora 6" Ultimate Utility Knife VB0741
Not bad, not great
Great steal, terrible handle. Handle is Cheap plastic and small. Great utility knife, just wish it had a better handle. I guess that’s why it was cheaper than similar knives.
