There are some guys on this planet who live and breathe knives like few others. And it just so happens that one of those talented guys, Jeff Freeman, has been earning a Gerber paycheck for nearly a decade. But when he came up with the concept for this acclaimed fixed blade hunter (along with Brad Parrish), well, Jeff got a nice little bonus: We named it after him.
There's no tougher hunting knife in the forest or the field. Its a solid full tang slice of stainless steel, encased by solid pear wood, and sculpted to be as dramatic as it is functional.
Field & Stream magazine named the Freeman Hunter a "Best of the Best" honoree in 2003, recognizing its place among the finest hunting knives ever engineered. But the real honor goes to Jeff, whose richest reward is knowing that hunters everywhere swear by the knife he created.
I really love the freeman knives and would love them even more if you brought the wood handled ones back. I really like Gerber and only buy Gerber's but I really want these and can't find any ANYWHERE so please Gerber BRING IT BACK!!
An excellent gut hook. A must have tool for quick and easy field dressing when deer hunting. I have had mine for years and it continues to be as excellent knife today as it was when I first got it 10 years ago. Note: I found the best thing to sharpen the inside of the hook with is a fine tooth chainsaw file.
