The Gerber Prodigy Fixed Blade Knife with Sheath will give you years of use and abuse in the austere environments we're used to working in.
Overall length is 9 3/4 inches with the blade length at 5 3/4 inches.
Made in the USA, Berry Compliant and has a lifetime warranty, the full tang, 420HC blade is coated with a ceramic coating to keep the blade from corroding in salt water environments.
This knife comes with a combination hard plastic and nylon sheath that will fit on your MOLLE or belt. The sheath has a system of straps which allows you to attach another small tool sheath like your cap crimpers. The knife is held in by a G10 plastic flex grip as well as dual straps that buckle around the handle. The nylon part of the sheath can be removed so you can hard-mount it to any other gear that you have.
The handle has a glass break that can also be used as a pain compliance tool or the ability to add a lanyard.
This knife is a solid performer for those needing a fixed blade knife for demo or underwater ops.
Come for the great gear, stay for the customer service! The knife sheath secures well on my plate carrier behind a rifle mag pouch with molle snaps. The knife itself is a full tang and solid for the price. My only gripe is that gerber only offers the tanto blade in od and not on the coyote version.
Eod-gear.com is my new place for bomb gear. I was contacted directly with a shipping question and they went out of their way to make sure I received my order on time!Cliff
