The Gerber LMF II Infantry is a survival knife that has been field tested by the troops and designed with the help of Jeff Freeman. The Gerber LMF II is designed to take on any task you come across in combat and survival situations. The non-reflective black finished 420HC stainless steel blade is partially serrated for maximum utility. A Gerber knife with full-tang handle is glass-filled nylon with a TPV overmold that helps minimize blisters and general shock from pounding of the butt end breaker. Smart design includes lashing holes and handle grooves for use as a spear.
The included sheath has buckled ballistic nylon straps that are fire retardant coated MOLLE compatible design. The plastic sheath includes an integrated knife sharpener so you're never left with a dull edge.
I have some land in Belize C.A. so no guns but everybody has a Machete.. lots of people are CHOPPED every day so i wanted something smaller for the ATV..this is the best. I can cut foliage or small trees every easily, and not feel defenseless. the scabbard is to cool for school.. on your belt on your leg or on your vest. very nice,
Use this knife as my hunting rough bush knife very strong blade and having a sharpener in the sheath is great for a little touch up after the abuse in the bush The sharpener is hard to access in the sheath as you have to take it apart mostly to use it
I bought this knife for hunting and backpacking and it has performed well. The blade is very large but not overly cumbersome. The texture on the handle is also well engineered and helps to keep a tight grip on the knife, even in wet conditions. The sheath is nice but the sharpener is not worth much. I also have used the back of the butt for nailing tent stakes in the ground. Overall, it has been a useful knife.
I do not wear a fixed blade regularly, mostly while capming. The construction of this knife is very user-friendly; fits well in the hand, won't shift in-use due to the rubberized feel of the top coat, locks up securely in the sheath, and can even be field-sharpened with the sheath. Full tang provides greater durability. Would recommend this as a nice (heavier-duty) alternative to a Ka-Bar.
This thing is huge. If nothing else you could use it as a hammer. The sheath is as tough as the knife. This would be a great knife for bushcrafting and outdoor adventures
