Product Description


The Gerber 22-01629 LMF II Black Infantry Knife was designed for survival during even the worst conditions. This 10-inch survival knife was engineered by former military man Jeff Freeman and was field-tested with troops, ensuring that it can stand up to rugged, rigorous use and offer high performance under a variety of emergency conditions.

The Gerber 22-01629 LMF II Black Infantry Knife includes:
  • 10-inch serrated knife
  • Pointed stainless steel buttcap
  • Overmolded handle
  • Lashing holes
  • Sheath with built-in carbide sharpener

The stainless steel blade and buttcap deliver precision strength.View Larger.

The sheath features a carbide sharpener and a belt attachment.
Strong, Serrated Blade Can Be Used in All Situations
Whether you need to cut firewood, build a shelter, or slice through a seat belt, the LMF II survival knife has you covered. It was designed to adapt to a wide variety of situations, so you'll never have to worry whether you have the right knife.

Unique Buttcap Can Pierce Glass
In addition to the blade end of the knife, Gerber also gave the LMF II a unique, pointed buttcap that is made of stainless steel. This heavy end can be used to pierce glass in the event you need to egress from a helicopter or other vehicle. The buttcap features a smart design that is physically separated from the tang in order to offer shock absorption when it's used as a hammer and also to prevent electrical shock.

Smart, Versatile, Comfortable Design
The LMF II features an overmolded handle, which helps prevent hand blisters and provides a secure grip. It is also designed with lashing holes, allowing it to be converted into a spear and extending its usability. The black color keeps you inconspicuous while you are out on night-time missions.

Sheath Included with Built-In Sharpener
A low-profile sheath is included and it features a built-in carbide sharpener. The stainless steel blade can withstand a ton of abuse, but if it ever gets damaged or needs sharpening, you won't be stuck out in the open with a dull knife. The sheath facilitates movement and attaches to a belt or MOLLE vest.

Gerber's History of Ingenuity
Savvy. Moxie. Craftsmanship. Attention to detail. These are just a few of the company traits that contributed to Gerber's emergence as a world leader in outdoor gear. Joseph Gerber started Portland, Oregon's Gerber Advertising back in 1910, and one Christmas, he hired a local knife-maker to craft 25 sets of kitchen cutlery as client gifts. The knives were so popular, Mr. Gerber ultimately left his agency to launch Gerber Legendary Blades in 1939.

For more than half a century, Gerber Legendary Blades has been helping people fend for themselves. Gerber designs popular, dependable tools and knives along with other outdoor gear that helps users accomplish whatever tasks they may be faced with, promoting the lost art of self-reliance.

For those not interested in details: "It's a great knife."

For those interested in details: The blade steel Gerber uses has changed. My original review was based on the original design that used 12C27; the current design uses 420HC. 12C27 was comparable in toughness (durability in rough use) and hardness (edge retention) to 440A and was a very good steel choice by Gerber. 420HC, when treated right, can be a very good steel too (e.g. "Buck knives"); however, it generally will be not be as good at keeping an edge as 12C27 or other, harder stainless steels, as well as most any carbon steel. It will be a very tough blade (less-likely/very uniikely to chip or crack in half), meaning it should handle hard-use and abuse quite well. All in all, it's still a good choice in steel - might have to sharpen a little more often, but it's got an integrated sharpener after all.

The construction is not full tang but push tang; however, this does not appear to affect its structural integrity. The LMF II is constructed in this manner in order to give this particular knife an insulated handle. This means that you can cut an electrically "live" wire without fear of injury. The story you might have heard already about this knife is a true one - this is the knife that allowed an advanced marksman team to cut a live electrical line in Afghanistan powering insurgent search lights that would have given their position away.

Since 420HC is a stainless steel, maintenance is minimal as is the probability of corrosion. The older 12C27 blade took a good edge and showed good edge retention. As a matter of fact, I was quite surprised at the edge retention of the older model. I would expect noticeably less edge-retention from the current 420HC model but not enough to negate the value of this design.

I love this knife. I spent the last quarter century bumping around remote locations in Alaska sleeping on the ground, mushing dogs and hunting and fishing at every opportunity. During that time I've bought dozens of knives looking for the perfect utility knife. If they'd made this one when I started, I'd have never had to buy a second. It's sturdy, nicely balanced with most of the weight in the ample grip, the serrated section of the edge is actually long enough to be useful, and the straight edge takes and holds an edge nicely. About the only thing I wouldn't do with this knife is fillet fish, because the heavy blade is not particularly flexible. On the other hand, a stout blade is perfect for just about anything else. I suspect I've found a companion for life. This knife is going to go everywhere with me, with the possible exception of commercial airliners, and that's not by choice. In Alaska anybody who gets on an airplane without a sturdy knife is a damn fool.

This model of knife was originally designed to be an ASEK (Aircrew Survival Egress Knife) and came with a cord cutter hook. The Infrantry Knife aspect came about after it was given to US troops in Afghanistan and Iraq as a demo item. It is a rugged knife, and has a window punch on its butt and a full tang blade completely insulated by the grip. This aspect came in handy to a certain sniper team in Iraq who cut a power line to a 250 KW Generator in order to dim the lights illuminating their position among around 100 insurgents. The electric arc put an eighth of an inch gash in the knife's blade, but the operator remained unshocked and was able to survive the incident. I am using it currently in Iraq, and I have found that though it isn't the sexiest of edged weapons, it is by far one of the most unyielding. Built in sharpener in sheath is nice, if you know exactly how to use it, otherwise you will nick the blade up a little. Came originally in desert tan/coyote brown, now out in straight black so I will have to by another one for my darker endeavors.

I did a lot of research before I picked this knife for my primary outdoors knife. The Gerber LMF II series is packed with everything one would need in an emergency situation.

First, the knife is made with a thick high-quality full-tang stainless steel blade. This is essential to holding up to use, abuse, and the elements. It is AMERICAN made in Oregon, and lacks the problems with blades made in China. It is a good size for most tasks although chopping large pieces of wood will be a bit of a chore, but it is possible. The partially serrated blade is also great for cutting rope. The handle is very comfortable and easy to grip, but a little thin, which may be a problem for some folks. The pommel is designed for use as a hammer, and has a pointed end that was designed to break plexiglass. This point would also be great for busting open shelled creatures for food or nuts.

The sheath seems to be a sticking point for a lot of folks, but I have no problem with it. It has a great rubber coated polymer body for grip when the knife is used for hammering. It also has a built in replaceable ceramic sharpening system that is essential for keeping a working edge on it in the field. The sheath attaches to a nylon strap that allows for multiple carry options including MOLLE gear. Take the leg/calf straps off and the sheath is really pretty compact considering its purpose. There are two snap straps to help hold the knife in place and there is an integral clip that really holds the knife secure. In my opinion the bulk is worth the extra options and durability. What good is a knife if the sheath is not durable enough to hold up to use and abuse, or falls off?
