    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 roard 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.

    Great everyday blade

    The knife comes in a variety of configurations so be mindful of the model you choose. This model, with the IR treatment, comes relatively sharp out of the box, with straps, and the sheath a bit stiff... So be ready to do a bit of work to lessen the stiffness and sharpen to your likeness. As for handling, it's a well balanced blade, capable of chopping minor trees and branches to provide fire, or gutting as needed. I wouldn't count it out to be a knife to rely on during outings of several weeks/months in the field. Able to cut and shave, I was making fire within minutes with the help of this blade. Moving on to taking down several larger branches to make shelter, a fish trap, and only having to sharpen once in between, I gave the blade four stars for the style sheath.

    Thanks to this knife, I have finally but my old leather handled USAF survival knife to pasture. I can say nothing else good about this knife that hasn't already been said and repeated by multiple reviews. I do wish, however, that it was offered in an OD green in addition to the, rather light greenish-grey foliage color. I did have a small issue with mounting the sheath and drawing the knife. I had the sheath mounted, with the provided gear, inverted on a MOLLE attachment on the shoulder strap of my chest rig (Condor Ronin). When I drew the knife, the snap of the MOLLE strap separated, the sheath came loose and prevented me from drawing the knife. Securing with some 550 cord fixed the problem. Great knife, comes with versatile accessories, good quality and durability.

    Seems like a sturdy, well-built knife. Sheath has several mounting options which I find to be a plus.

    Great knife

    So far this knife had proven to be tough and versatile. Although I've only used camping, I've been able to split kindling, carve and cut rope without any loss of sharpness.
