  1. Knives, Swords & Axes
    Guys and gals, someone recommend a new knife for my collection. I am thinking of something around the size of the Gerber Strongarm (I already have one), or around the size of an SOG Sealpup. I do not have an SOG Sealpup, so I am leaning towards one. MOLLE adaptable is a requirement. Please...

    Found this on Foxnews Tech Toys: The Hottest Gadgets of the Week. $350 Crazy!!! What do you think?

    Well I was at the outdoor store the other day, and saw this; I have liked the design since I first saw it, and the other day I bought it! Have not overly used it, so as far as long term I cant speak to how it will hold up. The things I do like about it are that it is an excellent chopper...

    What is a good cheap knife to leave at a bailout location? There is not much of anything there now. I would like a really good knife, but one not so expensive that I wouldnt cry about if it got stolen. Thanks

    Got a gerber Prodigy and so far it looks/ feels great. Smaller for the wife. May get another for a back up for me.

    So I took the plunge and ordered up a camel brown LMF II ASEK from Rocky National. Ive been debating with myself and my wallet for about 3 months now and I finally snapped! Im thinking the knife will be great for a Bug out knife and a great defence knife too. Now all I have to do is wait for...

    The Gerber Prodigy is kind of like a smaller version of the LMF II being 3/4" shorter in overall length. Other differences are the Prodigy is a full tang knife and the sheath does not include an integrated sharpener.

    Today I bought a 20 dollar assisted opening Gerber knife with a pocket clip thing to keep on my person for protection and cutting stuff and doing things that require a knife. It's pretty sharp but I'm not sure what kind of metal it's made from or if it holds an edge well. What kind of metal...

    Gerbers new LHR has an incredible design IMO. Why did they choose 420 as the blade steel ? This boggles my mind as 420 is known to hold the worst edge of any knife steel. These are web sites out there claiming it is 440A and even S30V !!! I contacted Gerber and they verified that it was...

    I didn't see this posted anywhere but spend $50 on a Gerber knife and get a bonus pocket folder for free.

    It has come to my attention that a lot of people like to spend some considerable amount of money on knives. Well, I have fallen into this fad on more than one occasion - this fad being broken for me when I managed to break the tip off a rather nice but expensive Kershaw a little while ago. To...

    As some of you know I recently broke my Gerber LMF II while batoning through some oak in the backcountry. I broke the plastic wrap that sits between the steel and the GFN handle at the hilt of the knife. You owners of it can look there and see the plastic piece I am referring to. In a number of...

    Anyone have any experience of/own this tool? I'm looking for something a little different, wondered if this would fit the bill so if anyones got one I would like to ask a couple of questions of you please.

    I have a knife for sale at this time. It is a Gerber MARK ll. It is similar to a M-3 military trench knife. The overall blade length is 6 7/8 inches long, the toatal handle length is 5 inches with a lanyard hole in the end cap of the handle. I believe it has a micarta handle, but not sure, the...

    Hey all, I'm currently debating between these two knives, and would value the scrutiny of my fellow board members. Would like to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly of each. I'd be using it as an outdoors camping/hiking/wilderness knife. The recon scout would be the SK-5 one. TIA
  18. Knives, Swords & Axes Now this clears up a lot of questions for me. Now I have to ask suppliers about the production date as well!

    Im looking at getting this knife but I read on a website they are changing the sheath. 1 version GERBER LMF II ASEK 22-1400 1 New version GERBER LMF II ASEK 22-01627 does anybody know what has changed with the new sheath?

    Got this last weekend when Sports Authority had all Gerber stock 25% off, so it was $82 bucks which is better than I've found elsewhere locally. Probably get it cheaper than that all day long online, but I was buying fishing gear already so I grabbed it. I have a 4-inch folder (Buck...
