    I carried the original Gerber BMF in the first gulf war. Best blade I have ever owned. Period.

    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.

    When I hike this is where my knife rides.

    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.

    I carry a Leatherman OHT.
    Have carried a Leatherman product on my belt since I was 15. I'm 52 now.

    If you see a guy who looks just like me, and he isn't carrying a Leatherman... It isn't me.

    I also carry a ridiculously bright LED flashlight right next to the Leatherman.
