LMF II Infantry - Coyote Brown
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 carried this knife while deployed to Iraq and it never let me down. It's a good knife for an Infantry Soldier to carry and use.
This is probably the best all round knife I have ever owned. The weight and balance are perfect for just about any job I have ever needed it to do.
Great knife system. Carried one on my aviator survival vest for two tours in Afghanistan, and carry the civilian model in my pack whenever going into the wilds. I always have the LMF II in my butt pack which goes with me anytime I enter the woods or go off road in my Jeep. Light enough to carry as a primary survival knife, but incredibly durable. Has kept its edge through a lot of use, to include cutting up kindling for fires and cutting through some smaller brush while clearing a camp site. Highly recommend.
it is the best for all purposes and it will get you through and situation and you will come out alive. and fyi, just because its infantry doesn't mean it is not a survival knife.
Great knife with great features. The sheath is probably one if the best features and has a nice built in sharpener. But you probably won't need to use it because this knife stays sharp for a while
i own 4 of these knifes and i am never in the woods without one. it has been one of the toughest knifes i have ever owned. i would recomened it to anyone looking for a solid reliable knife.
I like this knife, its great sturdy and even though it's a little too Rambo for my taste it is good for what it is meant to be used for. As for the tang not being a full tang, this goes to MICHAEL, it is intended that way for when you have t do some "Tactical" electrical work, and not get electrocuted. Thus they say its insulated.
been to hell amd back with me
cutting down 1.5 in trees
looks kinda rough now but thats a badge of honor that proves you and your knife can DO things
I love this knife. it ok for chopping. serratios are great. but the glass breaker has a little wobble
I've had this knife for about a year know, and I have abused the heck out of it and it's been just shredding up what ever is in it's way. I will tell any one that this is worth buying!!
I bought the Gerber LMF Survival and as usual curiosity got the best of me and I wanted to know what was inside the handle. I took the rubber over-mold off the plastic under it and of course it wasn't full tang as expected. So I came up with a solution, I welded the butt and the blade together with my stick welder using a 1/8 inch 7018 welding rod at about 100 amps or so ,then took some hemp and wrapped the "full tang now" knife handle with it many times until I was satisfied with the new handle shape. Next I went to Wal-mart and purchased some Gorilla Glue and put it over the hemp"(be careful to cover the blade if you try this as it can mess the blade finish up). After the glue drys take a Dremel and sand to the desired shape and "presto" you have a full tang Gerber LMF with a really tuff handle. Now be aware if you do this it will no longer be insulated blade to handle from electric shock(and it will probably void the knives warranty), but for all you survival/bushcraft junkies that crave full tang it certainly is better! Other than that this knife is great and the steel is awesome. Also works great for batoning wood!! -Michael W
the blade broke in half. better steel should have been used. i didn't bend it or anything. i just hacked some wood and it broke
awesome knife.. man it looks and feels amazing! the sheath is awesome and the blade shaves hair right out the box!!!
beefy knife but does the job. i went mountian biking and chopped in once slice some thick branches to blaze a trail..
the top of the hand grip peels from the sheath i hope gerber replaces this if it wears out
This is the perfect knife for airmen in the field that can rely to get out of a plane and survive with it no problem. In my experience, it performed greatly batoning wood and making feather sticks to start a fire. I would reccomend this knife to anyone!
No serrations and would buy in a heartbeat!
my friend told me about this knife as soon as he got it he thourght it was great so i went out and bourght it and i still agree with my mate to ths day, there have been zlch problems with it and i found t the best knife ive ever owned
Well what can i say. Its great, the sheath has so many applications and the knife itself is beefy. I couldnt imagine what it would take to break it. Handle is nice and tacky, you won't loose the stick to it at all. See why the military approves is
i am buying this knife tommarrow! i cant wait to own this bad ass knife ! it has everything but birthcontrol,what else could u whant in a knife? the only other thing i can think of is if it fired a 40 caliber round. so i guess that means u guys got it all in this blade . good job gerber!
The LMF II is an incredible knife. Hands down the best fixed blade I've ever owned!
Absolutely AWESOME knife. Worth every penny. The first time you hold it in your hand, you know its a quality knife. BEEFY full tang construction. I read about some Marines snipers using this knife to make a hold in a BRICK WALL to shoot through, and I dont doubt it for a second. You cannot break this knife, its an axe, a machete, and a pry bar all rolled into one sick knife. Awesome sheath, too, with a BUILT IN SHARPENER. USA made. Gerber is one of the best companies, period. Quality craftmanship, excellent customer support, and when they say "lifetime warantee", they mean it!! If you're considering buying this knife, STOP CONSIDERING and buy it already!!!!
Please give me 10 reasons what are so bad about serrations please they are really not that bad
Fantastic Knife (afghanistan test) !!!! I need only the sheath, where I can find this ???? Heeeeeeelp :(
Had the LMF II for about a year. I have used it to chop wood with a baton countless times. It has been in the rain and snow still having no problems. Plan to get another soon as a back-up. Great Job!!
I have owned this knife for over a year now. I am a hunter, minimalist backpacker, as well as law enforcement trained. When I go into the woods or anywhere for that matter, I have this knife with me. I have used it to break windows at vehicle accidents, chopping wood, and butchering elk. I have not had any major problems with this knife. When I need it, It WORKS!! From numerous activities the forward lugs on the handle did get cut and beat up, but I just took a lighter and heated the rubber and remolded it. I bought one for a family member to take on depoyment and now that he is back the knife is always near him. I would suggest this knife for anyone in military, law enforcement, or ourdoorsman. Thank You gerber.
happy as larry that i could pick one up without the "credentials" gerber want. got it today as a hunting knife, solid build and cant wait to use it. would of liked it more without serrations though.
Please make a non serrated version
This is the most awesome knife ever! I have used it nuemoures times hunting to chop wood and even make home made stake stir a ground blind. Just be careful not to beat up the handle when hammering. Having this knife in the woods is like having a machete,saw, and knife all in one.
I love this knife!!!
I Love this knife! the serrations are fantastic and it can compete with any other knife of its size in chopping ability. cuts through wood like a stick of butter. Nice job Gerber!
Great knife. Never was far from me in Afghanistan Used it chop, cut, scare some locals and even to pry doors open after we were hit with a blast. The blade never failed and the pommel is really handy. If when I die I and go to hell, I want this knife with me.
amazing knife, my dad owns one and i borrowed it a few times and it got me through everything i took it into, for christmas my dad got me one of my own and the grip started to peal off near the blade but gerber replaced it no questions asked
very reliable the knife is very snug in the sheath
Great knife i carried it through marjah Afghanistan, wish i had it back in fallujah. Only problem i encountered was the dry heat cause one of the saddle clips on the top of the sheath to break. It was such a great knife i bought a second one immidiatly when i returned home
This is one of the best knifes you could possibly own! It may be heavy but it is so effective its not even funny! I tied on a fire rod and a survival whistle to my knife. If I had a dozen choices this is the knife I would get lost with! I LOVE USA MADE!!!
I carried this knife through Iraq, Afghanistan, and even North Africa. This tool never let me down. It was daily exposed to drenching sweat, sand, extreme heat, and humidity. This knife is STRONG and durable, with great edge retention. Thanks Gerber! Will
Great knife just got it today but the blade and the handle finish could be better it looks like it had been lightly used but that does not affect the feel of the knife I like it allot. I have always had great luck with Gerber knifes. This knife should wor
THIS IS A VERY WELL THOUGHT OUT KNIFE DESIGN EXECUTED TO PERFECTION BY GERBER. i AM PARTICULARLY TAKEN WITH THE SHEATH. IT IS STURDILY BUILT WITH HIGH QUALITY MATERIALS. THE RETAINING SNAPS ARE TIGHT AND STRONG. I HAVE CARRIED IT STRAPPED TO MY CALF WHERE
