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 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
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.
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
