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 thesurvivalbros@gmail.com

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.

Today I met up with an old friend interested in trading pocket knifes, for my antique wooden chest. I’ve been packing this cool, big box around for years, but felt like swapping it out for smaller items I can potentially trade or sell later.

I got this ornate chest in Tigard, OR at a St. Vincent De Pauls for $40 or so. I was going to restore it, but liked the rough, vintage look, and couldn’t bring myself to refinish the wood. I never cleaned the tin exterior either. It made a great shoe box for awhile, but I had my eye on a stash of Swiss Army knives my buddy acquired from an estate sale. We are both hustlers, so I felt like meeting to get some deals going.

I picked these 18 multitools out of my friend’s collection. I will end up putting a few in small emergency caches to be buried. Some will be gifts, and others I will use for odd jobs. A couple have lights built in too. It felt good to trade for items that won’t be a burden to move. I’m always traveling, so bulk is bad. I will do more deals with this contact, and the possibilities are endless with online networking. Don’t miss out. Be social.
