Gerber LMF II Infantry Knife
Down behind enemy lines? Left to fend for yourself? These are the scenarios that inspired the Gerber LMF II Infantry Knife. Former military man, Jeff Freeman led the charge to engineer this fearless new ten inch survival knife. And we field-tested with the troops.
This knife is as adaptable as the personnel who carry it. Use it to cut through the skin of a fuselage. Or sever a seat belt. Or egress through the Plexiglas of a chopper. Plus, the LMF II does a slick job cutting firewood and building shelter.
The over-molded handle successfully limits blistering. There is complete separation between the tang and butt cap, so the knife absorbs the shocks from hammering and prevents the shocks of electricity. Smartly situated grooves and lashing holes let the LMF II convert to a spear. The low-profile sheath facilitates movement, limits noise, works for parachuting, and attaches to a belt or Molle vest. The patented, integrated sharpener means edge retention in the field.

Excellent Survival Tool
Posted by Michael
This is an excellent and well made knife. Out of the box it came with a really sharp edge, with a beveling wide enough for chopping without chipping. Having owned this knife for nearly a year, I have put together shelters with it, constructed snares with it, gutted fish with it, and easily kept a ready supply of firewood for 3-5 day trips. But a lot of knives are equally capable of doing this, so what makes it stand out? The answer: the combination of the ease of which these tasks are completed and the durability of the knife itself. it's weight lends itself to heavier work, but when it comes to finer work I have never found it to be unwieldly either. I have put other knives through the same treatment and only my ka-bar had come out in as good or better condition afterwards. What can't this knife do? I wouldn't throw it, and trying to use it as the steel half of you're flint/steel kit can be frustrating, though not impossible. it's just that the coating on it prevents really getting a good shower of sparks. Also, as others have mentioned, it is not a combat knife. It is an asek (aircrew survival and egress knife). If you're looking for a combat knife, try the mark ii, or even a non-serrated ka-bar. Well that's my time, I hoped this helped those of you who are looking for a good survival knife.
Gets The Job Done

This is a pretty good knife. it's not a tactical blade though. It does what it says it does which is mostly combat related. It would be a go to tool in a hostile environment, but it isnt a kill blade or a tactical weapon. It will batton wood pretty decent, but it's main focus is for getting you the hell out of a danger zone.

Alright this knife is excellent. The sheath alone is by far one of the nicest ballistic sheaths I have seen. It comes with well made nylon leg straps with like a rubber substance on it to stay secure on you're leg. The sheath had a sharpener built in. The knife had that quality feel and works well as a good all around knife. At the end of the knife is puncturing tool for glass/ plexi-glass. Well-made
Best Knife I Have Ever Owned!

This knife can be described as profoundly capable. The blade is large and well proportioned. I like the way the knife is balanced, it moves well in one's hand. The serrations are aggressive and saw through branches with ease. The knife can also be used to split large pieces of wood. The hammer is located to one side of the hilt. The glass breaker works great(i tried it.) I also heard a story of a soldier using this knife to cut through a helicopter windshield to self-extricate himself from a wreck. Sounds tough enough to me!
