SURVIVAL RATING - OUTSTANDING
The Gerber LMF-II was developed for, and has been thoroughly field tested by the U.S. Army. U.S Troops in Iraq have put the Gerber LMF-II through its paces, and have titled it a superb Survival Knife. That's pretty high praise. Combat field testing proves, and our own tests concur ... for the money ... the Gerber LMF-II is arguably the Best Survival Knife in the world
You probably won't have to use the Gerber LMF-II to egress through the Plexiglass of a downed chopper, cut through the fuselage of an airplane, or cut your harness off ... but with the Gerber LMF-II, if you had to, you could. You're much more likely to use the Gerber LMF-II to gather firewood, build a shelter, or any one of the hundreds of other Survival chores you might face, including lashing the LMF-II to a pole to use as a spear to provide food or for defense. The end of the LMF-II handle can also be used as a "punch" and as a hammer.
The Gerber LMF-II is an extremely versatile and useful Survival Knivfe, and it's a Survival Knife you'll be proud to own
The Gerber LMF-II, quite simply, is a superb Survival Knife!
