Gerber LMF II Infantry - Coyote Brown

Gerber LMF II Infantry - Coyote Brown

SKU #: Gerber-22-41463
MSRP: $140.14

Down behind enemy lines? Left to fend for yourself? These are the scenarios that inspired the LMF II. Former military man, Jeff Freeman led the charge to engineer this fearless new 10" survival knife. And we field-tested with the troops. This knife is as adaptable as the personnel who carry it. Use it to cut through the skin of a fuselage. Or sever a seat belt. Or egress through the Plexiglas of a chopper. Plus, the LMF II does a slick job cutting firewood and building shelter. The over-molded handle successfully limits blistering. There is complete separation between the tang and butt cap, so the knife absorbs the shocks from hammering and prevents the shocks of electricity. Smartly situated grooves and lashing holes let the LMF II convert to a spear. The low-profile sheath facilitates movement, limits noise, works for parachuting, and attaches to a belt or MOLLE vest. The patented, integrated sharpener means edge retention in the field.

    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.

    Freaking tank

    This is one solid tool. I've pried, hacked, chopped and hammered with this thing. I have a few small gashes from abuse on the the handle, which hasn't bothered the functionality of the knife at all and only adds character. The handle feels good in the hand and has great gripping. Overall a nice weight and feel in the hand and holds an edge. Can't find a better knife for this price as far as I'm concerned.
    Good weight, edge and grip, built like a tank, price, won't fry you if you have to cut live wires

    Years of reliable service

    Working as a biologist in the remote places of the American West, I find myself in need of a big burly knife like this on a daily basis. My LMF has chopped logs, pounded nails and tent stakes, dug cat holes, zipped through poly-cord, and done a million other things. I couldnt ask for a better daily duty fixed blade knife than this. It's perfect.

    No strap cutter
    March 31, 2015
    Its a great knife, however, it does not come with the strap cutter that other LMF knives have. I read some of the help desk answers from LAPolice. They described the knife as coming with the strap cutter. That is why I ordered it.

    I like my knife. The scabbard/ vest attachment/leg attachment is very complex, and the directions SUCK. It will take work on your part to adjust the scabbard to your preffered carry method
    Good value for the money in this world where a good knife can cost more than a gun.
    The damned over engineered scabbard system....royal pain in the ass
