About time
Good things come to those who wait and like me and thousands of other blade nuts , Gerber was on my not to by list , I always felt they just didn't meet my standards of quality knives they were junk!! But every know and then somebody hits a home run !!! And Gerber nocked it out of the park!!! I would love to see this knife in a 6 or 7 inch blade it would put alot of combat knives to scheme , and Gerber wouldn't be able to make enough for are military and suvilans , for just every day use camping , splitting wood , on the farm , I own quit a few Ontario and ka bars , love to see this bad Boy larger, and it's a exellent thrower !! Great job Gerber keep America , proud and strong , I feel we lost that some were along the way God Bless the USA and all the troops who are serving!!

It’s OK
I think at some level a knife is like a shoe or glove in that you have to find one that is a good fit for you... just feels right. Personally, I just don’t care for how this knife feels in hand. The handle feels too thin and rectangular in hand to me.... doesn’t have a good palm swell. I felt the same way about the Gerber LMF with it’s more rectangular grip as opposed to rounded. Just not a knife that feels good in hand to me but may work well for others. That aside, I think it is an OK value. Decent heavy duty jack of all trade knives with hybrid survival tactical features. The negative is that it doesn’t really excel in either area, but still costs a decent chunk of change. Blade is a little too thick for true tactical and handle too thin... not the best grip. Blade is not the best shape (in my opinion) for a great survival bushcraft type blade and again not a great handle for that either. The sheath is pretty good and the knife has been durable thus far. If it cost less it would be a great knife to throw in a big-out-bag as a back-up, etc. If I could do it again, I would pass on buying this blade and put the money toward an Esee. If you like the LMF you will likely enjoy this knife. Again, a decent knife for the money, just didn’t work for me.
