A word of care when you acquire this style of knife, numerous dealers don't also know the distinctions in the models. I have actually seen both, physical stores and online shops selling the incorrect blade under the incorrect name so BEWARE! It may cost it to pay a little a lot more from a reliable merchant to be sure you're getting precisely just what you desire.
There are 3 types (not 2) of Gerber LMF II knives, the ASEK, the Survival, and the Infantry. Most folks assume there were only 2 kinds launched. Below are the distinctions.
The Gerber LMF II ASEK version comes with the sheath, blade, 2 leg bands, the security blade, and the security blade sheath. The added cutters for the security knife could be discovered in the deal with. The ASEK is SIMPLY readily available in the foliage green colour and it is INFRA-RED resistant.
The Gerber LMF II Survival version comes with the sheath, blade, 2 leg straps, the security knife, and the safety knife sheath. The extra blades for the security blade are be found in the deal with. The SURVIVAL version is JUST available in the camel brownish shade. It is NOT infra-red resistant.
The Gerber LMF II Infantry variation comes with the sheath, and ONE leg strap. The INFANTRY version is offered in plants environment-friendly, camel brown, and my personal fave ... black.
There is one various other thing of significance you ought to know. From January 2008 to April 2008 the steel of these blades was temporarily altered from the Sandvik 12C27 SS to 440A US SS. In May of 2008 manufacturing was returned to with the initial steel. Gerber had to change steel types as a result of an absence of product available. The 440A US SS was the closest suit they might get.
These are wonderful knives and I highly suggest them. They are outstanding for searching, outdoor camping, survival, and they have actually even seen action in foreign lands. If you are looking for a great strong fixed blade knife you cannot fail with among these designs.
