Gerber has 70+ years of experience designing and engineering their knives and tools for customers who demand the very best. Their products can be seen in the hands of Military and Tradesmen alike as well as Outdoorsmen, Hunters, Professionals, and anyone else who wants a tool that will not quite. Gerber knives and tools are reliable, dependable, and hold up to rough use and abuse.
Design cues for the new Prodigy were inspired by the award-winning LMF II, another knife engineered by Gerber's Jeff Freeman. The Prodigy is much smaller (9.75" overall length), but it certainly packs as much punch as its predecessor. The full tang, U.S. 420HC Stainless Steel blade is beefy, and coated with black oxide for improved corrosion resistance and reduced visual signature. The ergonomic over-molded rubber handles ensures a soft, comfortable, but secure grip in all conditions. Its also MIRS compliant. Much like the knife, the sheath is designed to live up to the task with a friction-release thumb lock for security and a list of non-detection features. Noise is dampened thanks to a molded softgrip coating which, like the ballistic nylon material, is MIRS compliant. It's also MOLLE compatible and comes with a leg strap.
