This is an OUTSTANDING knife for any military personnel! It includes the pictured MOLLE sheath.

After two years of collaboration, Gerber is proud to introduce one of the toughest military survival knives ever made; the LMF II. With expert military instructor Frank Heyl as our guide, and the military as our proving ground, we have created the single most important tool that you can carry. In any survival situation, the LMF II can be used to construct shelter, cut firewood, spear dinner, or slice through an aircraft fuselage; even egress through helicopter Plexiglas. When survival counts the most, the LMF II is the one tool you must have at your side.

  • 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.

    Best knife but has limitations
    October 24, 2014
    This knife takes the abuse like a champ but careful not to hit the rubber handle guard end while batoning or it will fail. This knife is so good in every other way, I bought another and chalked the guard damage up as user error. I like the feel of the rubber grip so much that I'm willing to adjust my batoning technique. I also wish the serrated edge was on the other side as I'm right handed. Besides that, I still would have to say this LMF II is better and lasted longer than any other knife I've used and I've used a lot (some for 3 times the price). This knife works well attached to a Blade-Tech as well. I have it mounted on my Maxpedition EDC. I'll still keep on rocking this knife everywhere I go but am withholding 5 stars until they sell one with the serrations facing the other direction. Never had a knife feel so good in my hand and do it's job so well. I still highly recommend.
    Comfort and control, strength of tip & blade, holds edge well, takes abuse well
    serrations not user friendly for right handed users in some applications

    shave ready, heavy duty, multiple carry options and ergonomically comfortable. great knife all around. i feel sorry fr the guy that makes it past my primary and secondary to get the closest shave of their life.

    best knife i've ever owned
    June 6, 2014
    what more can I say. I beat the hell out of this thing for 2 years on 15+ camping trips and it has met ALMOST all of my expectations thus far. I use it for every possible thing you can use a knife for in the field.
    holds edge, extremely durable blade, serrations stay super sharp, great ergonomics in grip, versatility, perfect size, low price point
    while performing some batoning with the knife (which I do a lot for building up kindling etc), a small piece of the guard (plastic) dislodged from beneath the rubber grip. this was my fault for hitting it in that area with the log, but I think they could have used something a little stronger in there but ya can't win them all. this defect does NOT affect and functions of the knife so it's not a big deal but is the only reason for the 4 star review over 5.

    May 19, 2014
    I truly love this knife. It is a workhorse. It is thick, and heavy. Gerber has built a name on quality and this is no exception. The MOLLE attachments are great and add to the usefulness. This knife is not made for covert ops. It is a true crusher. This is the knife I would want in an emergency.
    MADE IN THE USA! High quality. Very sturdy. MOLLE sheath. Free belt/ cord cutter included.
    The free cord cutter is plastic. Can't win them all.

    Knife is very suitable for survival. Great for cutting, chopping, and sheathe holds securely. Only downside I'd you can't use sharpener on sheath without removing nylon leg strap. Great item for the cost.
    Serrated blade, sharp edge, ability to mount various ways.
    Sharpener hard to access.

    Great Knife

    I own numerous "custom" knives (Randall, Lyle, etc.). While this knife is not their equal it is, for the price, a fine addition to my car, pack, etc. I have recommended it to friends and they are equally pleased.

    This is a great utility knife for the Bug Out Bag. Tried it on chopping wood, hammering nails and even used it for processing game. It worked great and kept an edge with some quick sharpening after use. For the price you can't go wrong.
