A rugged and versatile survival tool designed by veteran Jeff Freeman, the LMF II Infantry Fixed Blade Knife from Gerber stands ready for use in all situations. A smart, versatile, and comfortable design, this knife features an overmolded TacHide handle that prevents blisters and provides a secure grip in all conditions. Made of durable 420HC stainless steel, the LMF II Infantry's 4.84'' blade features both fine and serrated edges to adapt to different situations. On the other end, the knife sports a unique pointed stainless steel buttcap you can use as a hammer or to break glass in an emergency. Physically separated from the knife's tang, this buttcap absorbs the shock of impact and also prevents electrical shock. Intelligently placed grooves and lashing holes in the LMF II allow for easy conversion to a spear. Comes with a fire-resistant, ballistic nylon sheath with a built-in carbide sharpener. This low profile sheath design facilitates movement, limits noise, and attaches to a belt or MOLLE vest. Overall length: 10.59''. Weight: 11.67 oz. (w/o sheath), 24.28 oz. (w/ sheath). Manufacturer's lifetime warranty.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3
Rated 3 out of 5 by fellowoutdoorsman Has a few problems
3 starts might be a bit harsh, but I expect a lot from a knife that costs over 100 bucks. Good points: blade is good and thick (maybe 3/8? can't remember) so it holds up well when battoning and getting beat on. Tip will not break under normal camping/backpacking use, but if you're determined to break it I'm sure it's possible. serrated edge is good for cutting paracord or rope or even decently sized branches. fine edge does pretty well with carving or more tedious work. Grip will not slip when wet and is pretty hand-friendly. Bad points: not a full tang blade. The hammer end or blunt end, whichever you prefer to call it, is not part of the blade. It's a separate small piece held into the handle by an internal nut and will work its way out of you jar it enough over time. Edge retention isn't the greatest and will need sharpening more often than it should. The built in sharpener inside the sheath is not great. It's not a bad knife, but its not worth what you pay for. It's worth 80 at best, but I have other knives that cost less that perform better so 80 is probably generous.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great Knife
Very durable and solid. It's pretty hefty, but personally I like that in a knife. The handle fits well in your hand and doesn't slip when wet. It's excellent for camping or hiking and could be used for hunting, but it probably wouldn't be ideal for field dressing or anything. This is definitely a no-nonsense knife, plus it's made in the USA.
I also have Gerber's Bear Grylls survival knife and I think the LMF II is basically a better version of that. If you're looking for a casual camping knife to just use occasionally and won't be too rough on it, you'd be better off with the Bear Grylls knife. However, if you're looking for an all-around knife that needs to stand up to lots of abuse, then this knife is your answer.
