Like the men and women who carry our gear, Gerber is Unstoppable. Decades of innovation and dedication have put us here. Renowned as a master of knives and tools, Gerber's problem-solving, life-saving products are designed with the unique needs of specific activities in mind. Today that includes much more than a blade.
The Gerber Prodigy knife features a rugged blade with durable full tang construction that extends through the length of the handle. The tanto blade is ideal for thrusting and picking, while the textured TacHide handle ensures a firm non-slip grip in all conditions. The handle's window breaker on the base includes a lanyard hole. A durable tactical sheath secures the knife in place and can be worn on either the vest (M.O.L.L.E.) or belt. The blade measures 4.7 inches long, and it has an overall 9.75-inch length. The Prodigy weighs 7.2 ounces on its own and 12.1 ounces when in the included sheath. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

Just recently i got bit by the blade bug (it was quite painful), and I've been building a small collection of what i would like to call my "survival/home defense kit".
Gerber has been around for some time now and even though they have factories in China (still awesome Gerber knives made in China), Their high-end made knives are manufactured in Oregon. They've been making knives for the US Army since the 1960's..
I have a few Gerber pocket knives all in which are made in China, but that doesn't necessarily make them bad, they are actually all damn good with very sharp blades..
This one, called the Prodigy is made superbly, it feels wicked in the hand, the steel and just overall build quality and feel is pretty damn great! The tanto point with serrated edge is really nice and really makes it look sexy!
The blade is sharp, but not ultra sharp. it definitely needs to get professionally re-edged!
The edge of the blade out of the box was perfect, not chipped or rounded, straight lines all the way through!
It's full tang all the way down to the butt of the handle and even that looks like it would mess somebody's day up real bad.
The grip/handle is good but not great! I have the Strong Arm Gerber knife and the grip on that beast beats this one leaps and bounds!
The Tac-Hide material feels a bit thin, not crappy thin, just thin. It's strong to a point, just don't abuse it.
The butt end of this knife where the grip material ends seems like its peeling, it's just a hair bit, but i wont mess with it and it should stay on.
The plastic mold is solid, it does look like a 2 piece mold though.
The sheath is super ultra tight with knife inserted, hopefully it weakens overtime. Great to know it wont fall out by accident or force!
Sheath is bi-directional, so you can insert it point in with blade left or right.
It's really just so affordable, not cheap!
Update**, i bought another one! So i now have 2 Prodigy Tanto's!
Picture i uploaded is of the Gerber Prodigy Tanto, Gerber Strong Arm Spear Point, and Bear Grylls Compact Fixed Blade.
I really like this knife, it is a very solid, lightweight, and sharp. Even made in America!
The sheath is polymer and it clicks into it. I wish you could easily remove the fabric from the sheath. The sheath actually has 3 retaining methods: a piece of nylon that snaps across the handle. The hilt clicks into the base of the sheath (I find this to be the most effective retaining method and don't really use the others), and there is a stretchy "cup" that covers the whole pommel (the pommel is sort of sharp...). That many retaining methods is ridiculous and unnecessary, but whatever.
I took this knife as my main belt knife when I went camping at Yellowstone. I didn't end up needing it much, but I have no doubt it would've been able to handle anything I threw at it, plus it was so lightweight, that I barely noticed it on my belt.
Now it has found its way to my chest rig / plate carrier.
Great knife, you will not be disappointed.
Overall the knife seems very sturdy, I haven't put it through any abuse yet but out of the box it seems great.
It feels like the perfect size for my large glove size hand. Grip is very grippy and feels good. Plus I really like the glass breaker on the handle, nice perk.
Sheath is also very nice, the knife feels very secure while fully locked and strapped in. Requires a nice tug to draw the knife, not too much just perfect really. At this price I can't imagine much better quality. 5 stars for price/quality.
I know it probably differs from knife to knife, but as I said mine was literally razor sharp...be careful.
