Traded it for a Mel Pardue auto Benchmade. Did I screw up? Too late now as that was a couple years ago, but I've always wondered since...

I'll give you a different take on it.

I believe that any auto is the wrong way to go.

At physical/psychological stress, your fine motor skills go out the window. Many better automatics now even have 'safeties' to complicate matters.

The only folding knife that seems to be worth carrying is the Emerson Wave. Pull it out and the little hook on the back of the blade automaticaly deploys the blade.

1 motion, pull it out- it's open.

The minute I picked one up I knew that the 15 or so automatice including a Scarab OTF were now relics. Interesting but useless. The Wave is also street legal in terms of 'switchblade' laws.

Depends on the Gerber, if you had a orginial MKII with the "bent" blade and didn't sell it to me you screwed up.

No...I'd heard of this "bent blade", but it wasn't one of them....as for the auto....i can see both sides of the arguement...


I use it as an additional backup to my duty sidearm, and pocket .380....."in case"......
