Gerber Legendary Blades now has two tactical automatic knives that have Federal National Stock Numbers (NSN). This allows federal agencies, including the military, to procure these knives without going through an adoption or bidding process. These knives are called the “06 Drop Point” and the “06 Tanto.” The new Gerbers are much-refined versions of the now immortal Florida Black Knife in both design and function. They are also identical to each other except for their respective point styles, revealed in their names. The blades are propelled open by a torsion spring that keeps constant tension on the blade, thereby preventing blade bounce. A simple button mechanism locks the blade in both the open and closed positions.
