    Thumbs up

    Nice pics, thanks. How many inches would these blades be? I'm starting to think of blades in inches instead of metric already, because it's more usual with American knives.

    The Gerber LMF II is 5inches in blade length and 11 inches overall
    The Glock Field knife is about 6 and 7/8ths of inch in the blade and 12inches overall.

    Default Gerber LMF II

    The Gerber is very well done and made in Portland, Oregon, USA. The handle is very secure and comfortable in everything I've done with it.

Some have stated that its "butt heavy" but I never got that impression and I personally like the buttcap the way it is. It chopped reasonably well for a 5inch blade and made fuzz sticks pretty well. The sheath is ingenious with its draw through sharpener, it comes with two adjustable straps for calf or or dropdown carry, MOLLE webbing, and it also has a rescue hook with its own MOLLE sheath. Unfortunately the sheath wears on the finish of the handle at the guard and it takes a little more effort to pull it out of the sheath than other knives. It is an excellent knife on the whole.
    Any questions just ask
    Nice knives Hammer. I like the Gerber LMF. Could you tell me the blade thick. Is 6 mm?
    Could you take a picture of the sheath's back?
    Is an expensive knife?
    Thank you for your time,
    Percor

    It's less than 6mm, its 3/16ths of an inch so I think that converts to about 5mm or so. It costs about $100 USD but you can usually find it for a bit less. I'll get picks of the back up ASAP.

    Where are the typical double-edged blades??
    I was wondering that myself. Times must have changed, I guess its an old fart thing.

    Here's my all time favorite.....

    Gerber MKII



    While I am an old Bruce Lee fan, my influences leaned more towards Mike Echanis. I've owned three or four MKII's over my lifetime, and still have two. I've never been a fan of the serrated versions though.

    Another old favorite....

    ^^nice FS, didnt know they still trusted you gents in the UK with sharp pointy things these days. j/k

    Nice Gerber there AK, i feel stupid for getting rid of mine. Use to have this attitude with knives, if it aint being used, then its no use having it. Stupidity of youth. Gerber just re-released the MK2, going to have to pass on that, iirc its made in Taiwan, baka!

    Still kept my MK1 though.


    An me spydies.

    Very nice collection of lock knifes, I like the look of that dagger (if that’s what you call it) =)
