When I am out in the AZ desert looking to survive I always have a good Knife. Gerber LMF II 2 ASEK Coyote Brown Survival Knife & SEAT Belt Cutter -
Price on Amazon with free shipping Gerber 22-01400 LMF II Survival Knife - Coyote Brown
Sold by: Amazon.com LLC
In 89' I paid $125 for the BMF. There were not too many working knives back then that cost more. By comparison $67 is a fantastic deal. Are Gerber's tactical knives the same quality today as they used to be? Some of their pocket models seem very average.
Better then the BMF Amazon just has it cheap with free shipping other sites are around 100 +. and it has the blade sharpener and seatbelt cutter that I will use for rope.
Why would anyone need a knife that big? I've dressed caribou with a 3-inch blade. The only reason one needs a monster knife is to kill someone quietly, but even if you had a monster knife, would you know how to kill someone quietly? Not many do. Don't be stupid and take your knife to a gun fight, either. That could really ruin your day. Sheesh, if it was a cheap Chinese knockoff it would remind my of my POS son-in-law always strutting around like he has delusions of being Jim Bowie.
p. s. I carry a Gerber, too. Multi-pliers. Can't find an identical backup as it has given many years of good service.
It's a utility knife and it has come in quite handy on the trails.
