I wouldn't mind toting this very nice piece of kit around with me wherever I go (esp. to fend off those deadly deadly elite hobos).
like the full flat grind on this one man! the lmf is a great design,but i feel it fails a lil bit because of the hollow grind and the steel that the factory uses. carbon steel is much easier to field sharpen than stainless in my opinion.
I agree with you completely. Although, my field sharpening skills are lacking and that's putting it nicely. lol. I do like the lmf design though.
i carry a strider folder edc,and it's s30v. but when i am outdoors,it's carbonsteel all day! i have been sharpening my own stuff on whetstones since i was 9 years old when my grandpa taught me,sharpening and honing by hand is good therepy for me
this is really great knife i love it
I thought Gerber LMF II was awesome from the destruction test video, but I like how yours is full tang, even if has no large glass breaker. Gerber had that rubber grip but I saw it gets damaged from use. If I had to choose one or the other I'd probably go with this one, might not be made in an industry but it looks like it will last longer. The Gerber one seems built to be a one time use knife, but sawing through airplane sheet metal was very impressive. Sharpener built into the sheath was a neat idea but everyone seems to hate it for some reason.
Gerber has had some of the greatest designers over the years, it looks like this one is on steroids !
Very nice work man !
Very nice work man !
Well, so long as it isnt made from gerbers patented mistery pig iron, i'd say she's a winner!
Lol, naw she's made out of quality metal. I'm not nearly as tricky as Gerber.
So, tell me of the grind... Scandi, flat, convex, hollow, some random space-grind i've never met before?
Flat grind. I was going to go with a super secret space-grind, but I changed my mind at the last second.
Good plan. Those super secret space grinds are a super secret space pain in the arse in my oppinion. Flat grind suits her well
Can't go wrong with flat grind on a utility based knife, if you need to tune up the edge in a pinch it's much easier ,)
I own and use blades with all sorts of grinds. I make blades with all sorts of grinds. Far as i'm concerned, all this "one is easier than the other" stuff is BS made up by people who want their grind to be used more often
can't wait to hold that puppy!
I can't wait for you to either! I hope that you like them and you should be getting them this week.
Whats amusing is that I was just looking at a Gerber for my little sister for her birthday, this is much nicer than what I was looking at, though larger. I really like it
Very nicely done
