Jay Boyd says:

adam ant says:

@9:24 u mentioned something about an asig or something like that for military persons only, what knife is that and where can u find it?

Joranba says:

love it the knife for free!!

Sam York says:

The BG ultimate pro is better than this knife as its full tang and comes with a firesteel

C. Westfall says:

dude… your channel rules.

wardog says:

why do you bother with breaking car windows yeah it takes a bit of force but i could do it with just about any knife with o handle whats a least 3 and a half inches

AJ S says:

..or you could get a Ka-Bar Becker BK10 for the same price. Much more reliable of a knife from a very reliable company from an awesome knife designer.

Derek Robbens says:

You seem to share your bed with Gerber and SOG I would challenge any of these against a cold steel bushman

Allen Newberry says:

Good video, but the music is a little loud

Zatoichi One says:

that guy has the ugliest finger nails! WTF!

axell26ful says:

The lmf is also electrical sealed

Patriot One says:

Amazing knife, in bought two for $80 ea off Amazon. One for my truck, one for my camping ruck. Not a full tang so you don’t get electrocuted if you cut a hot wire. No mystery.

mylo fireblade says:

Had mine for a few years now,still one of my favorite knives

dunno yolo says:

Would you recommend the gerber LMF II Over the sog seal team elite se37 k  ?

Dupa Krowa says:

dont really like the very wide blade but a good knife indeed!

TheMrAlexrj says:

What’s the difference to the Gerber with orange details in the hander?

abdullah alkatheeri says:

Hi daved I have Gerber LMF2 but it have a number code 0870514C what it’s that code ……thanks

Emoji Rick says:

TACTICAL KNIFE only someone stupid would try to baton something with it . Please do your research and stop dick riding other peoples comments like dafuq close your pum pum

Ray Hinojosa says:

Can you kill the crappy rock during the review? 

BB King says:

your music is really annoying your video’s would be match better with none

Nigel Naicker says:

Has anyone else had a serrated knife get snagged when trying to cut something? Im thinking about getting the Gerber Strongarm in serrated versions…

Dan Schwemin Jr says:

I really wish Gerber included a diamond or ceramic sharpening stone or rod on the sheath instead of the pull-thru sharpener. Pull-thru sharpeners are just garbage and destroy your knife. =(

DaBomb says:

I went to sport chalet to see this knife and get a feel for it, and the person working there said “Ya, the blade goes all the way from the tip to the but end.” and I was like “Nah, it’s made to protect your hand if your chopping live wires. They are 2 different pieces.” BAM!!! He didn’t talk to me for the rest of the time there. 🙂 Thanks David for the info.

Aey - Anna Pibulsilp says:

Why do you wont low visibility knife in a survival knife… does the shininess attract bears? Sharpener looks nasty carbide type. Think I will stick to my ka bar, a couple of lighters, and my fenix tk75 2600 lumen flashlight with back up nitecore ea4 800 lumen. wet and dry sandpaper for edge touchups.

Alex Quintero says:

i will keep my microtech halo and the sog seal pup original and swiss army key chain

Ken Johnson says:

Good review, bad music.

Brad Griffith says:

Soooo… I was issued one of these in Iraq and the blade broke while batonning a pretty small piece of wood in Afghanistan. Gerber gave me quite a bit of trouble regarding “normal use.” I received my replacement and thought I’d give it another shot. This one broke as well, in the handle this time. I was chopping a small tree for a tarp pole. By looking through the lanyard holes you can see that the tang is very small in comparison to the blade. This knife has major design flaws and I would not recommend ANYONE depending on this knife for disaster or survival knife.
