    Gerber Prodigy

    Good or bad? I mean for a $40 knife...
    I've recently decided that I'm Irish. I mean....why else would I love red-headed women and Irish whiskey so much?

    I've always liked the LMF (which is very similar to the prodigy) but never actually owned one - or even handled one. I think the smaller size of the prodigy is probably a little more efficient design for what most of us would be using it for. The 4" blade is plenty long enough to handle just about any job. The overall 9" length is small enough to fit into an ACU cargo pocket if you wanted. The prodigy seems like a very good knife that's reasonably priced. I like it.

    Lately, my favorite knives have been the old, beat-up AK bayonets. They're rugged and cheap so you don't have to worry so much about breaking or losing one. You can buy 4 for the cost of one prodigy.

    I believe that the Prodigy is a full tang, while the LMF isn't.

    Don't have a Prodigy, but I've never had a Gerber product fail on me; and I picked up my first one in over thirty years ago...

    The Prodigy's reviews on Amazon are pretty positive.

    I love the Prodogy. the knife is US made, the sheath is a great sheath but made in China. If you can get past that, the knife is worth every bit of $40. The blade is sharp and thick. the knife is not a large Bowie knife but the right size to use with most tasks. I carry one with me in my bag everyday. Every member of my family has one in their bags. An impressive knife for the money. My only gripe is that I do not like the pointed pommel. I would like that rounded so it is not pokey.
