LMF II Infantry - Coyote Brown
Down behind enemy lines? Left to fend for yourself? These are the scenarios that inspired the LMF II. Former military man, Jeff Freeman led the charge to engineer this fearless new 10" survival knife. And we field-tested with the troops. This knife is as adaptable as the personnel who carry it. Use it to cut through the skin of a fuselage. Or sever a seat belt. Or egress through the Plexiglas of a chopper. Plus, the LMF II does a slick job cutting firewood and building shelter. The over-molded handle successfully limits blistering. There is complete separation between the tang and butt cap, so the knife absorbs the shocks from hammering and prevents the shocks of electricity. Smartly situated grooves and lashing holes let the LMF II convert to a spear. The low-profile sheath facilitates movement, limits noise, works for parachuting, and attaches to a belt or MOLLE vest. The patented, integrated sharpener means edge retention in the field.

I think you made a very functional knife and in in particular a great sheath. I life the different colour variants as well. I used your knife(green colour) today to shop some wooden branches and discovered the front part of the handle was damaged in the process. What was very disappointing was that the knife blade become slightly loose as a result of this slight damage. As a result of this experience I would like to make the following suggestions:
1. You hardened the back end to break perspex why not harden the front section of the handle as well. This will protect the front end from damage and maintain a great handle as well.
2. The studs fasteners tend to rust as a result of rain, etc. Replace these with brass one's will solve this problem. If you make these changes I will be the first person who would like one!
I now have to fix your knife after a short time in the bosh! Not good at all especially if the main purpose of this knife is as a survival tool.
