The Gerber 22-01629 LMF II Black Infantry Knife was designed for survival during even the worst conditions. This 10-inch survival knife was engineered by former military man Jeff Freeman and was field-tested with troops, ensuring that it can stand up to rugged, rigorous use and offer high performance under a variety of emergency conditions.
The Gerber 22-01629 LMF II Black Infantry Knife includes:
- 10-inch serrated knife
- Pointed stainless steel buttcap
- Overmolded handle
- Lashing holes
- Sheath with built-in carbide sharpener
Strong, Serrated Blade Can Be Used in All Situations
The stainless steel blade and buttcap deliver precision strength.View Larger.
The sheath features a carbide sharpener and a belt attachment.
Whether you need to cut firewood, build a shelter, or slice through a seat belt, the LMF II survival knife has you covered. It was designed to adapt to a wide variety of situations, so you'll never have to worry whether you have the right knife.
Unique Buttcap Can Pierce Glass
In addition to the blade end of the knife, Gerber also gave the LMF II a unique, pointed buttcap that is made of stainless steel. This heavy end can be used to pierce glass in the event you need to egress from a helicopter or other vehicle. The buttcap features a smart design that is physically separated from the tang in order to offer shock absorption when it's used as a hammer and also to prevent electrical shock.
Smart, Versatile, Comfortable Design
The LMF II features an overmolded handle, which helps prevent hand blisters and provides a secure grip. It is also designed with lashing holes, allowing it to be converted into a spear and extending its usability. The black color keeps you inconspicuous while you are out on night-time missions.
Sheath Included with Built-In Sharpener
A low-profile sheath is included and it features a built-in carbide sharpener. The stainless steel blade can withstand a ton of abuse, but if it ever gets damaged or needs sharpening, you won't be stuck out in the open with a dull knife. The sheath facilitates movement and attaches to a belt or MOLLE vest.
Gerber's History of Ingenuity
Savvy. Moxie. Craftsmanship. Attention to detail. These are just a few of the company traits that contributed to Gerber's emergence as a world leader in outdoor gear. Joseph Gerber started Portland, Oregon's Gerber Advertising back in 1910, and one Christmas, he hired a local knife-maker to craft 25 sets of kitchen cutlery as client gifts. The knives were so popular, Mr. Gerber ultimately left his agency to launch Gerber Legendary Blades in 1939.
For more than half a century, Gerber Legendary Blades has been helping people fend for themselves. Gerber designs popular, dependable tools and knives along with other outdoor gear that helps users accomplish whatever tasks they may be faced with, promoting the lost art of self-reliance.

- One of gerbers best
This is one of Gerber's best knives.Buy one now because Gerber has a history of dis-continuing some of their best knives.
This knife is a great value considering that it is as good a knife as the Trident series which cost much more.The only shortcoming of this knife is the sheath,It's for a molle' vest and does not carry well for most.Some may see this as a plus, the constuction and material is first rate. The knife fits well in your hand,has a stout well shaped blade.The chisel point on the end of the handle is functional, but I wouldn't count on the hammer funtion,the flat is just too small....more info
- Great knife at a good price
very sharp and sturdy. Not sure I'll ever need to punch through my canopy but still a great knife. ...more info
- Great Experience
Excellent Item at a great price. The knife is razor sharp, be careful. The Product is pretty much as described, it looks very rugged and I'm sure will last a long time....more info
- Very good stuff
Very sturdy and well balanced, it fits perfectly in my hand. I'd still prefer a fine edge vs serrated but that only a small con. I've only used it for light duty stuff but so far the blade has been pretty good. I like the integrated sharpener, easy to use. The sheath is also very well made and has many attachment options.
Overall very good knife....more info
- Outstanding tactical knife
This is the best knife I've ever had, period. I enjoy hiking for days in a row and having a good knife is probably the most important thing to have on your side (along with a good friend and map, of course).
1. Sturdy and well built with a great thick blade (you can use it as a hatchet if you hammer it with a stone)
2. Crafted *IN THE USA, YES SIR*: this is no cheap Chinese knock-off (sorry guys, you can't be great at everything)
3. Isolated butt-cap, which means that, if by an extremely unfortunate accident of life, you happen to dig into a electrical main, you won't die. (Apparently, this would be useful if you're into urban combat: that's what they say in the manual)
4. Comfortable grip material: it feels like your hand binds well to the knife.
5. Ships with a good sheath, very technical and complete with a neat sharpener: definitely a plus.
1. Weight (3/4 lbs) and size mean this is no man-purse knife. If the TSA folks catch you with that I guess you better have no plans for the following 3 days.
2. You need to sharpen it before using it.
3. My girlfriend freaks out when she sees the knife.
Overall, a great knife for a wide range of use. Have fun!...more info
- A great knife for the price!
This is one sturdy knife. I was able to split wood with ease and still hold a good edge. IT has a good weight and comes with a great sheath, with its own blade sharpener.
The hammer edge also comes in real handy. Have not tried tying the knife to a stick but its a great option in a survival situation. Paired with a fire steel fire starter, makes the pair a great survival kit....more info
- Solid Knife, great price
I bought this knife because I have never owned a fixed blade knife. I usually end up buying the $5-$10 folding knives which work great for little things around the house. When I go hiking or camping, I am afraid to use the knives to their potential because I am afraid of it closing on my hand. THUS, I bought this Gerber LMFII as my go anywhere do anything knife. I use it like an axe/hammer/knife/machete/pry bar and never worry about its strength. High quality knife, great feel....more info
- One heck of a knife!
First off, the size of this knife is bigger than I expected. This isn't going to slip into a pocket or be inconspicuous in any way. The sheath is rather large and has many diferent ways to attach to your person. The blade is thick and could only be described as heavy duty although it is not overly long. The handle provides a very secure grip. If you you were to go on a hike in a remote area, this would be one must have item along with food, water and signaling devices. The sheath has a nifty honing slot in it. I rate the quality as first rate....more info
- Knife great - replace sheath
This is a great knife. It is just the right length, the blade is sharp, the serration useful, and the thickness of the blade makes it sturdy enough for a wide variety of tasks. The grip also feels very good, the knife sitting solidly in your hand, and allowing for pressure to be applied to in a variety of directions (cutting downward, upward, or sideways).
My only complaint is about the sheath. Maybe you need all the various attachment options if you're a Navy SEAL, but as an ordinary user, you might as well throw away most of the tangle of Velcro straps that greets you when you open the box. Most annoying however, is the knife retention mechanism. It is an overkill version of the Glock knife design, fundamentally a very good idea. But as other people have noted in their reviews, it is very tight. It requires some effort to extract the knife with one hand even under normal conditions; if you have to pull out the knife with wet, cold, numb hands (not an unlikely scenario in the kind of environment where you're going to use such a knife most), you may be in trouble. I'm planning to have a custom leather sheath made for it; the knife is well worth the extra money for that....more info
- Exactly what I wanted
I did a lot of research before ordering and couldn't be happier now that I have it in-hand. The description doesn't do the quality of this knife justice. The grip is unlike any other and feels like it is super glued to your hand. As others have mentioned, the length of the straight part of the blade is pretty good for most tasks and the weight should help accomplish most anything in the wild. I can't wait to field test it soon. Anyone giving less than 3 stars on this knife probably has no business owning one in the first place....more info
- Good but not for everyone
This is a great knife. Sharp, Sturdy, and Useful. However it is heavy and bulky, not to mention hard to remove from the sheath....more info
