CS Recon Scout vs. Gerber LMF II

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.

Recon Scout. I have several of many manufacturers' blades, so I have had ample opportunity to test out many. The steel is the first consideration for me in an outdoor {heavy use} environment, SK-5, while needing oil, is much easier to field sharpen SHARP than the steel on the LMF. Also, will hold up better under extreme abuse than the stainless Gerber uses. The LMF's sheath system is nice, but it might have to be modified for silence if that is a concern. All that being said, the LMF would definately not be a waste, just not the pick I would choose.
