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, high-carbon 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. It's also MIRS complaint. 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. It's also MOLLE compatible and comes with a leg strap and two additional attachment straps for added security.

I gave this the 5 star rating based on its performance to price ratio and does it perform! It not only comes with a great sheath that can be adaptively attached to a tac vest or molle bag or belt. Great great blade I say buy two!
