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.

You gotta see Thompson Falls in Seaside, Oregon.  This waterfall is gorgeous, but also extremely dangerous to get to.  It’s located in the hills North of town.  Please be careful if you do hike out there.  Survival Bros will continue to bring you epic HD videos, but only if you continue to like, comment, and share these blogs.  It’s all for you.  Enjoy!

In this HD video I demonstrate the power of the high-performance Coast HP314 Focusing LED Light.  This monster has three modes: high, stobe, and low.  On high the beam will travel up to 2240 feet!  Plus, the four D batteries (included) boast an impressive run time of 4 hours 15 minutes.  On low, the HP314 works effectively for 192 hours, at 185 meters.  The long range focusing optic worked extremely well.  You can go from broad view flood beam, to X-Range spot beam with a quick adjustment forward or back.  It illuminates all ranges in between, so you have ultimate control of the intense light.

In the box you get a heavy-duty shoulder strap, and thick protective end caps.  However, they have to be removed after each use, because the light wont fit in the carrying case with them attached.  The HP314 has an amazing feel.  With the strap, its weight is evenly balanced.  I had no issues with grip even when Survival Bros tested it in the rain.  My hands were cold, but it’s just the right size width to grasp naturally.  In addition, the diamond shaped knurling pattern on the casing gives it just enough texture, without being overly abrasive.

It’s durable casing is made of lightweight professional grade aluminum.  The light kept shining after a shock test, when I threw it on the ground several times.  I even had it submerged in murky water for minutes while turned on.  This is an epic tool for rescue and law enforcement professionals, or anyone who needs to see at long distances.  The HP314 weathered the Survival Bros stress test.  All Coast products have a lifetime guarantee.  Their quality is unmatched.  Check out the full line of products at http://www.coastportland.com  More product reviews soon.  Thanks for watching, and visiting my emergency preparedness blog.  Please subscribe to this website, and our Youtube channel to receive all of our posts.  Peace.

Survival Bros decided to help a previously abandoned shelter pup out, and take him for a walk around Lake Sacajawea in Longview, Washington today.  Charlie spends way too much time in his concrete kennel, and was aching for attention, and exercise. The shelter is completely full of dogs right now, and would like to get some adopted out immediately.  Stop by or give them a ring if you need a buddy.

 When we got to The Humane Society of Cowlitz County they asked if we would release a wild, rescued duck too.  I’m a University of Oregon Duck, so of course I helped out.  We put the female in a crate, and drove to it’s home on the water.  She followed us for a ways down the path, but eventually settled in, and got regrouped.  All in a good days work.
