True Story from the field of the Gerber LMF II: “I’m here writing this letter because Gerber’s new LMF II worked just like you said it would. My spotter and I set our position over a section of road where there had been a great deal of IED’s (improvised explosive devices) placed. There was no moon and it was dark as it could get. This meant I would be able to see the bad guys with my NVG’s (night vision glasses), and they would not be able to see us… which is the way a soldier likes it.

As we began to engage two targets, a larger contingent of bad guys arrived and started looking for us. I decided we should pull back, and I radioed for evacuation. We moved to a bombed-out compound and set up a defensive position to wait for the helicopter. We were then told that the helo had been diverted to a med evac and we would have to wait for our Bradleys, which were about 10 or 15 minutes out… no big deal.

Two of the bad guys moved into the compound. We were waiting for them to come into the open for a clearer shot. As luck would have it, they turned on a generator. Within seconds, the compound was lit up like a Wal-Mart parking lot, and the two men continued their search.

My spotter and I noticed two 220-volt power lines running along the wall to the floodlights. I remembered you telling me that the handle and butt cap of the LMF II knife were insulated and would not conduct electricity.

I have to admit I wasn’t exactly thrilled about the thought of having to cut the “hot lines,” but in battle you do what you have to do.

I moved over to the wall and wedged the knife behind the power lines and used my body weight to cut through the lines. I did turn my head and close my eyes.

I felt the heat from the lines arcing but that was it. I wasn’t electrocuted. Darkness returned and our cover was restored. We were able to re-engage while we waited for our evac. The knife blade had a couple of chunks eaten out of it by the high voltage, but when I got back to the compound I worked most of them out with a honing stone. You can still see where the blade was arced. Thank you and your company for this great knife.”

Gerber Blades LMF II Sheath Issues
This knife is hugely popular with our Government Agencies and because of the strict testing requirements of this product; the sheath must pass a 10-G Gravity Test to withstand severe warfare conditions.

Gerber is aware that the straps may be extremely difficult and are working towards a resolution. However, there is a way to “stretch” the straps, making them easier to use.

  • Make sure both straps that contain the snaps are “unsnapped” and open
  • Place your LMF II Knife fully into the sheath
  • Extract your knife back out of the sheath about a half an inch
  • Snap both straps around the smaller portions of the knife handle at this point
  • With the snaps fastened, push the knife back into the sheath
  • Allow approximately 24 hours for the straps to stretch

    After about 24 hours, your straps should have stretched to a more appropriate size allowing for easier functionality of the product.

    To enhance the extraction of your blade with more ease, add a drop of oil on the inside hilt (tongue) of the sheath. The handle will rub the tongue with less friction and should extract much easier.

    Probably the best deal going...

    I own two of these knives. I loved the first one so much I wanted my wife to have a reliable knife for camping and for general outdoor activities. It may not sharpen like some other surgical $200 pocket blades but this wasn't made for fancy cutting. In the outdoors I need something sturdy for cutting, chopping and can take a beating. The thick neck on this blade makes it strong enough to hit against, the other features such as the integrated hammer, spear tie-down points, glass punch, sheath sharpener make it that much better. I love this item and still can't believe it's less than $100. You really can't go wrong if you are looking for a survival/camping knife.
    Complete survival knife. Super sturdy, grip is very confident, great additional features not found on other survival knives.
    Heavy and not the sharpest knife out there. I would rather have this without the serrated part of the blade.

    Very good knife
    October 19, 2013
    I've always been partial to Gerbers & this knife continues to set the standard. It's a solid blade with good weight & beef to it. The handle conforms well to my hand. Pretty good edge when I first received it, but I did have to touch it up a bit for my personal liking. No worries though. I've used it on a few trips to the desert for chopping firewood, prepping a shelter, nothing really heavy duty yet, but it performed well & kept it's edge. The sheath is well made & versatile. I also carry it at work secured to a thigh rig for utility or last ditch fighting purposes. I might just buy another one.
    Solid blade, good weight Versatile sheath Great price for this quality of knife

    If we buy this gerber product from LAPG; will the gerber warranty still be effective? Would this gerber warranty webpage be the right way to go after receiving my knife?
    on July 8, 2013

    Yes, the warranty would still be effective. LA Police Gear is an authorized Gerber retailer, which means that the full Gerber warranty is extended to any Gerber products that we sell.

    Is this model made in the U.S. or in China?
    on March 13, 2013

    This Gerber Knife is made in the USA and the sheath is assembled in the US of US and imported components.

    By Kolten on May 28, 2013
    Is it a single piece of metal all the way through or is the butt of the knife and the blade two separate pieces of metal?
    on May 28, 2013

    The blade and the butt cap on this Gerber Knife are not one piece. If you view this product on Gerber's website and go through the images, you will be able to see how far back the tang goes. You can view the picture by viewing this link and scrolling through the images:

    How does this knife differ from these Gerber knives? SKU# Gerber-1400 or SKU #: Gerber-1626? Do they each come with the same sheath?
    on November 2, 2012

    All of the Gerber LMF's are the same minus the color. They do all come with the same sheath.

    By Tony Palleschi on February 13, 2013
    Does this product have one or two straps for the thigh rig?

    The thigh rig has two straps to hold onto your leg.
