Survival Bros Product Testing The Gerber Prodigy Blade By Breaking a Glass Car Window

Using a “survival”¬†knife¬†to break glass for people¬†locked out of their vehicle, Survival Bros helps by smashing a small car window, so the owner can get his keys and go home. The¬†gentleman’s¬†girlfriend locked the¬†keychain in the car by accident before setting off on a day hike. ¬†At first, their solution was¬†to simply throw a¬†rock at the shiny, new BMW Sedan! ¬†They decided against that method of breaking in. ¬†He didn’t care about money it would cost to repair his ride, because he has auto insurance. ¬†I guess insurance¬†covers women. ¬†The couple would have been stranded on the mountain at night, if they couldn’t get in. ¬†There’s NO cellphone service in The Forest. ¬†Fortunately, she was able to reach her arm in without getting hurt to pull the door handle open from the inside.¬†

Would you¬†call the Gerber Prodigy a true survival knife? ¬†Comment. ¬†It’s smaller, and only has versions featuring irritating serrations. ¬†Most friends I’ve encountered aren’t¬†fond of this blade profile, because it takes away from the cutting surface area. ¬†¬†Total length of 9.75 inches and blade length of 4.75 inches. ¬†

On the plus side, the sheath is quality, making it easy to lash, or attach to your backpack. ¬†MOLLE compatible, with a leg strap to try as a carrying position. ¬†The rubberized grip works well, and fits in hand ergonomically. ¬†It’s a bargain entry level survival or combat knife. ¬†Whatever you want to call it, or use it for, the price is right on Amazon for under $40 with free shipping. ¬†I’m going to beat mine to Hell this summer in the woods, then consider packing the LMF II, or something new. ¬†Have any knife recommendations for Survival Bros? ¬†You can always email me at

Watch Survival Bros breaking car¬†windows¬†with that blade¬†too! ¬†It’s considerably bigger, and better.

Don’t try this! But if you do, wear proper eye and hand protection.¬†

Out of nowhere, my VW Bus is struggling to start. ¬†Everything electrical flickers. ¬†The radio cuts out. ¬†The engine sputters. ¬†Plus, the battery and OXS (oxygen sensor) light came on. ¬†I called Avery’s Air-Cooled in Kelso, WA and they helped me¬†diagnose¬†the problem over the¬†phone. ¬†We figured the issue was a faulty voltage regulator. ¬†Mechanics Jason and Kelly had a $40 Bosch part, and installed the unit for only $29. ¬†But before I got fixed up and back on the road, I was parked on the shoulder of Highway 101, waiting for Classic Towing to get me to another state – Washington. ¬†Thank God for AAA. ¬†I’m on the Premier towing package. ¬†Nothing but the best for my baby. ¬†Funny that I broke down on the way to the repair shop.


Avery’s Air-Cooled always hooks me up, and keeps my bill low. ¬†And if you have a Volkswagen, chances are they will have the part you need in stock. ¬†Call them to order something at¬†(360) 425-1119 ¬†Here’s their website too! ¬† ¬†I will have to shoot some HD video there soon. ¬†They have tow truck loads of vintage bugs, buses, and beyond. ¬†And if you hang out long enough, you’ll get to see a traveling Art Show as the graffiti passes on the nearby train tracks. ¬†


Here’s an HD video production I created filming graffiti on trains in Longview, Washington. ¬†Visit Cam’s other YouTube Channel and SUBSCRIBE!
