The Prodigy fixed blade knife was inspired by the award-winning LMF II, another knife engineered by Gerber's Jeff Freeman. The full tang blade is black oxide coated U.S. 420HC stainless steel. The ergonomic over-molded rubber handles ensures a soft, comfortable, but secure grip in all conditions. It's also MIRS compliant. The sheath is designed to live up to the task with a friction-release thumb lock for security and a list of non-detection features. Noise is dampened thanks to a molded softgrip coating which, like the ballistic nylon material, is MIRS compliant. Its also MOLLE compatible and comes with a leg strap and two additional attachment straps for added security.
I recently purchased this knife from a local walmart . It was the last one that they will carry is what I was told by the manager and I cant understand why. This knife is made in Portland Oregon right here in the U.S and is the best knife that I feel I have ever owned . Well balanced, sharp, lightweight, and perfectly fitted to my hand with good grip are just a few of the qualities that I like about this. Several knives costs more but none of the over 250 that I have tested comes close to the quality of this great knife.
Well i purchased a Coyote brown and strait edged version of this knife.I feel for a fighting knife that theres no room for serrated edges and so as well have a StrongArm with a partially serrated edge.Iv found the serrated edge gets in the way unless u are using it more for work then combat.the serration gets caught on clothing as well as other items that may be on the enemy.Its perfect for combat and been a high quality and useful tool as such!I wouldnt trade it for anything else but another Gerber! thanks
for this US made knife. You won't be hesitant to use the hell out of it. The sheath alone is worth the $50. Grip is very good and the blade is quite sharp. Makes an awesome pack or camping knife. However, I would like to see at least 440C steel instead of 420HC
