Design cues for the new Prodigy were inspired by the award winning LMF II, another knife engineered by Gerber's Jeff Freeman. The Prodigy is much smaller (9.75" overall length), but it certainly packs as much punch as its predecessor.
The full tang, U.S. 420HC Stainless Steel blade is beefy, and coated with black oxide for improved corrosion resistance and reduced visual signature. The ergonomic over molded rubber handles ensures a soft, comfortable, but secure grip in all conditions. Its also MIRS compliant.
Much like the knife, the sheath is designed to live up to the task with a friction release thumb lock for security and a list of non detection features. Noise is dampened thanks to a molded softgrip coating which, like the ballistic nylon material, is MIRS compliant. Its also MOLLE compatible and comes with a leg strap and two additional attachment straps for added security.
Gerber Tactical Series -
In the hands off first responders and military personnel, the proper tool can be the difference between life and death. Gerber's Tactical Series was created with this in mind. Every single tool is built for a specific purpose to make the job of firefighters, soldiers, police officers and EMTS easier and more effective. We make tools that save lives.
Gerber Fixed Blade Knives -
Typically used for hunting or camping, fixed blades do not fold, making them extremely stout and secure. We use both full and partial tangs in our fixed blades, which are made using a high carbon stainless steel. The handles are made from a variety of materials including wood, genuine stag or our patented softgrip technology.
