LMF II ASEK - FG504 Green
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.

i really wish you didnt have to have credentials my brother is in the army and he has one. says they are one hell of a knife he uses it in afghanistan,im looking to buy one for myself.
GERBER KEEP IT COMING
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make an all-fine edge version. THIS would be the ultimate.
I have two one I have put through the sand box over seas the other is still new and in the bow I wont sell either one . I love them both
I love this knife. I've used it (with a chunk of concrete as a hammer) to open surplus Russian ammo tins, to cut branches, to dig in the mud, and to threaten an inquisitive gator. It's survived it all. The blade is really thick and even though I've taken chunks out of the edge it cleans up and sharpens up just fine. Made in Oregon too.
I have both the bear grylls knife and the LMF II and i can tell you they are not the same! quality of the LMF II sheath is better, the knife is thicker, has better durability and a better coating on. although the bear grylls is lighter and has more gadgets don't mistake looks for quality!
It comes highly recommended by a bunch of NCO's and Officers in my unit, from my LT to the CSM. It'll be my next knife purchase, and I'll be back to write a proper review.
GREAT KNIFE. Considerable improvement to our last ASEK from the Ontario Knife Company. I love the fact that it is a quick draw with no snaps or straps. It stays in place when I'm hanging upside down out of the Chinook doing sling loads, which, with the crappy snaps on the last ASEK, I dropped a few times before taking it off my vest. And for 64 bucks?! I'm buying one for personal use. The only downside is on my fligh
Terrifi. Knife, I posed it with the serrations yet I have just picked it up from a local knife shop who re groin the edge to a fine edge and it is possibly the ultimate knife, the guy at the shop is an incredible craftsman, he profiled the blade so that the new edge (where the serrations were) meets with the original edge flawlessly and as a result I've only lost 1mm of width at the handle. Best $10 Ive ever spent
I have the bear grylls knife, same knife just a different butt on it. It is awesome works great and solid construction, for anyone who wants a great knife with a few extra bells and whistles on it I would recommend.
Best knife I've ever owned. I have the coyote brown version, and it's the knife I want at my side in any situation.
I have had three lmf ll's and all three have broken. The first one I sent in for warrenty came back rattling loose within the handle, an issue it didnt even have when I sent it in. My third lmf broke when I was splitting some firewood. I battoned the handle to straighted the blade out in the wood and the cheap plastic shattered. I have smacked the crap out of my KA-BAR's metal handle and it is completely fine .The lmf's blade was then rattling again.I sent it to Gerber and they finally gave me credit. I also had a hydration pack from them and not only was it poorly designed because the water bottles fell out every time you bent over,but two seperate zippers broke. One was an actual zipper,and the other was a zipper tab. Both had very little force applied. I also recieved some credit for that. Gerber makes some terrible products and it is very hard to ever get a live person on the phone. When you do get a live person they sometimes give you incorrect information. I was waiting almost a month for a replacement product. I called to see what the deal was and found out that the item was currently out of stock. No one ever bothered to give me a phone call though. I will never do buissness with Gerber again!
Best knife I've seen. I would trust it with my life.

Best knife I've used. Butt works great as a hammer. This thing can cut through anything. I'm buying another for use for when my service is done.
this knife would be sick without serration and with a full flat grind.
This knife is just as awesome as it is appealing .... It is a must have for any soldiers gear ... Have the Coyote Tan ... Thank you GERBER !!! KEEP IT COMING!!
This knife is wicked awesome!!!! The sheath is a perfect desighn and the knife is razor sharp including the serrated edge!! I recomend it to everyone!!!
If I'm in a survival situation, this is the knife I want with me. I have the foliage green model.
Love this blade to bad I cant buy it. No prior military service but avid outdoors-men and ad knife enthusiast. I think this blade is tough looking and would love to have it!
i agree with... Soldier Fox - DEC 5, 2011
Couldn't you make one with a full fine edge?
I love the knife, but I hate that Gerber doesn't offer many of it's knifes without serrations.
Once this comes in a fine-edge version, it's mine.
420hc steel kinda sucks
I have seen many Marines beat the hell out of this knife with good results. I would love to have one but do not like the serrations. If Gerber offered this blade with a full fine edge I would take one right now!
How to get one?
i think the knife is awesome, can cut threw just about anything thats what i like, idk what i would use the spear but its good for if i was lost which would probably not happen. so i think it was a great knife i recremend it to anybody in the military
Functional knife. Has served me well since buying it.
As 'Equalizer' says, those who don't understand the serration don't need to buy a knife like this!
As Equalizer says, this is a fantastic heavy duty knife that is perfect for what it is for. The serrations are great because they can be a saw, cut rope and stay sharper longer than the main blade. This isn't a hunting knife, unless you spear something with it, but it could skin an animal. This isn't a cooking knife, but it might get you something to cook. I don't use the leg straps, as I keep it attached to the webbing on my pack. The strap cutter is in my vehicle just in case.
This is the best knife in the world for what it was made. Someone who doesn't appreciate the serration doesn't know how to use this kind of knife and should buy something else.
This knife is still a secret and way too underestimated- just the way I like it.
Would be the best knife ever, if it weren't for the serration
