The stainless steel blade and buttcap deliver precision strength.View Larger.
The sheath features a carbide sharpener and a belt attachment.
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.

Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
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?Read more ›
