It's not hard to imagine that winning awards for their work on the Freeman Folder would make our knife designers feel pretty good. And they do, because they won the 2004 IWA International Knife Award. But ask them about what's truly satisfying about their creations the drop point or the gut hook and the answer has more to do with offering regular guys a hunting knife that'll just flat-out get the job done. Our designers really thought this one through. With features like an open spine that permits easy clean-ups, a true finger guard, grip-enhancing grooves that double as indexing indicators, a wide lanyard opening, and our ever-popular lacquered pear handle grips. And then there's the fact that the Freeman Folder looks mighty good, whether it's in the field or on the mantle.
I have one of the Cabelas' special edition models - cocobolo handles, BC coated blade, leather sheath.
It's phenomenal, was an EDC for many years.
I bought one of these in 2005 lost it in
July 2012 it was my daily carry knife. I do industrial construction held up great!!! want another one
I've had this knife for several years now and besides the odd sharpening job that you need to do once in a while, this knife has proven itself to be extremely durable.
Quality is also phenomenal, with virtually no blade play over the last few years!
Feels nice and heavy - just like a real knife should (non of those cheap plastic knifes!).
I would recommend Gerber products to anyone!
I love this Knife! I work at a Music Camp during the summer and one of my jobs is running and maintaining the out door Shell/stage. This knife does everything from rigging to re-doing light wiring. Now if I can only stop loosing them. Ive lost two!! :-(
