Full Tang Blade for Strength and Durability
Featuring a design inspired by the award-winning LMF II, the Prodigy packs a punch yet is still compact enough for optimum portability. This full tang, U.S. 420HC stainless steel blade is beefy enough to handle whatever comes its way, and its black oxide coating provides improved corrosion resistance and reduced visual signature, so you can take it with you on any kind of excursion, or for outdoor adventures.

Ergonomic Handle for Secure Grip
The Prodigy's ergonomic, over-molded rubber handle ensures a soft, comfortable, and secure grip no matter what the conditions. Much like the knife, the sheath is designed to live up to any task with a friction-release thumb lock for security and a range of non-detection features. It also includes a belt loop for fast hanging.

MIRS and MOLLE Compliant Materials
In addition to providing a better grip, the molded TacHide coating dampens noise, and like the ballistic nylon material, is MIRS compliant. The Prodigy is also MOLLE compatible and includes a leg strap and two additional attachment straps for added security.

Compact Design for Pocket Portability
With an overall length of 9.75 inches and blade length of 4.75 inches, the Prodigy is compact enough to hang on your belt or strap on your leg without weighing you down.

About Gerber: A History of Innovation
Savvy. Moxie. Craftsmanship. Attention to detail. These are just a few of the company traits that have 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.

It makes sense, really. An idea man gets the idea of a lifetime and turns it into a major outdoor brand--one that commands respect among knife lovers and knife makers alike. And now that same high regard is spreading in new directions, in the form of many outstanding products such as tools, personal L.E.D. lighting, and more.

What's in the Box

I spent several days if not weeks researching tactical knives before my last deployment and the Gerber Prodigy kept coming to the top of the list. After 7 months in Afghanistan, I think I found the ultimate tactical knife (not that that will keep me from buying more though, they are just plain fun). On previous deployments I had carried K-bars (tanto and classic), and the OKC bayonet. All great knifes, but lets be realistic, we are not fighting hordes of enemies in the jungles anymore. For urban carry I found them difficult to use, noisy, heavy and hard to carry comfortably. Folders never lasted more than a couple of months of field use, and daggers, though by far my favorite knifes, are for one purpose only. So I was looking for something that would fit the bill as a tactical knife ready for combat in an urban environment and tough enough to survive deployment use.

The Prodigy is IT. This knife is nearly indestructible, has a wicked sharp blade that retains the edge excellently, and it is perfect in size: big enough to use in combat and small enough so that it is easy to maneuver in confined spaces and do more "delicate" work with it, and this puts the prodigy over the LMF for me. The weight is greater than you would expect for the size, but less than a full size combat knife.

My second point in selecting the knife was the sheath; it can make or break an otherwise great knife. This sheath is damn near perfect. It can easily be adjusted to go anywhere. I wore it strapped to my leg on my pistol holster most of the time, but attached to the lower back you cant even feel it either. The size makes it comfortable to wear anywhere on the plate carrier or LBV, and the friction-release holds it securely, and quietly, in place even in upside-down wear.

I just got this knife and I must say I am impressed. I debated on buying the larger LMF model because of the overwhelming review rating...that being said I am glad that I saved $25. The only difference really between the two is the ability to make a spear and lash the LMF to a pole, a built in sharpener, and a hammer like surface. The Prodigy may not have these things but it is well balanced...heafty...has a great grip in your hand...and the sheath is very adjustable....So if you want the beef of the LMF without the price...The Prodigy is a great survival...bushwaking, backcountry knife.

I have the big brother to this knife, the LMF II. This one is slightly smaller and doesn't come with that immense sheath, but is a solid knife in its own right. The grip is very comfortable and fits my hand well. In my opinion, a good grip is as important as a good blade because you can easily open your hand if the knife slips.

Out of the box, the blade was sharp enough to shave my forearm. It's a good weight -- not very heavy -- but feels solid. It does just about everything as well as the LMF II, except that it's just a touch lighter and shorter.

My usual knife test is to grab a couple coconuts from my neighbor's tree and see how easily I can open it up (carve the top off, open a hole to drink, carve a spoon from the husk, then chop it open). I did the test with this one and am happy to say that it did the job beautifully.

Next, I have this mutant tree in my back yard that grows like crazy. When green I can chop one branch with two swings from my machete. This knife took four to five hits but cut cleanly.

The Prodigy is actually a better bargain than the LMF II if you don't plan on "egressing" from a aircraft anytime soon. My "combat" experience is mainly waging war against the foliage, but I'm happy to have this knife during the fight.

Check out my full Gerber Prodigy vs Prodigy Tanto vs Gerber LMF 2 VIDEO Review on YouTube. Go to YouTube and search "prodigy tanto lmf 2"

Let's take an indepth look at the Original Gerber Prodigy and the Newer Gerber Prodigy Tanto. Along the way we're also going to compare the Prodigy line with the Gerber LMF II....

Okay... so let's get started...

The Gerber Prodigy survival knife was inspired by the Gerber LMF II line of survival knives, was designed to military specs and is MIRS compliant. This means that the Prodigy meets the requirements to be purchased and used by the military.

The Gerber Prodigy knife comes in two versions... the original Prodigy and the newer Prodigy Tanto. Both are made in the USA.

The Original Prodigy comes in all black and the Prodigy Tanto comes in back with a green handle.

Both versions are Full Tang construction. This means that the knife is one solid piece and the two handle halves are pinned onto the blade, one on each side. This is the strongest of the tang types.

The overall length of the Original Gerber Prodigy knife is 9.75 inches with a 4.75 inch straight to serration blade. The Prodigy Tanto is 9.5 inches in length.

Both knives weight in at around 7.25 ounces and 12.5 ounces with sheath, compared to the LMF II knife which without sheath weights nearly this much.

The full tang U.S. made blade is meaty and tough. Coated with black oxide, the knife benefits from greater corrosion resistance and reduces the potential for reflection in covert situations.

The Original Gerber Prodigy knife blade is made of the same material as the Gerber LMF...420 HC stainless steel and has a standard rounded blade point.
