Anyone that has any experience in the outdoors knows that they should always carry a quality knife. A good knife, such as the Gerber Prodigy survival knife, has unlimited uses when you are enjoying your favorite outdoor activity. Let us look at the specifications of this knife, and what makes it stand out among other knives in its class.

The first thing is that the Gerber Prodigy survival knife has a full tang blade. This means that the blade runs the entire length of the knife. This increases the strength and durability of the knife. The blade is made from 440 stainless steel which is coated with black oxide. The coating serves two purposes, it stops the blade from reflecting light, and it prohibits corrosion. The blade is 4.80 inches long and the overall length of the knife is 9.80 inches. The blade also has a very useful combination edge. The front part of the blade has a standard edge while the back of the blade is serrated. This makes the knife good for any sawing applications you come across while in the field.

The handle is a soft-grip over-mold with a hard substrate. The soft-grip handle offers the user a secure grip under any conditions. No matter whether the handle is wet, hot, or cold you will always have a firm and reliable grip on the handle. This is especially important while sawing with the serrated part of the blade. For those that carry military style MOLLE backpacks you will find that the sheath is designed to be compatible with the MOLLE style backpack. The sheath is also designed to be stealthy. This means that when you remove the knife from the sheath it will not make any noise that could give away your position. This is particularly handy when hunting game such as deer or turkey. The sheath is designed with a quick release mechanism, this keeps the knife securely in sheath while not in use, and yet allows for quick deployment of the knife when needed.
