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.
