Freeman Fixed - Drop Point, Fine Edge

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.

Absolutely loved this knife and it was stolen out of the back of my truck a few years ago haven't been able to find another one please bring this knife back.

One of my favorites! Wish you bring back the pear handle scales. Also a leather sheath!

5 Your Title Rion Arnold - JAN 5, 2014

I own the gut hook version of this knife and it is my favorite hunting tool next to my bow. Please bring back the beautiful pear wood handle for this drop point. It is so much nicer than the nylon handle. Some of us appreciate the finer things and a wood handle is important. If you bring it back I will buy two immediately.

Great knife! I was given to me as a gift and I take it on every hunting trip I go on. it would be great if they brought it back.

5 Great Your name - DEC 1, 2013

Best knife I ever had. Wish I hadent lost it.

5 Your Title Taylor S. - AUG 18, 2013

One of the best knives that I have ever owned, hands down. The pear wood handles are beautiful and hold a nice grip while the blade holds an edge very nicely. I have taken this knife just about everywhere, from the mountains and streams down to the city and the ocean, this is an all-around fantastic knife that I have had for years and will most definitely hold onto for years to come! Bring it back so I can buy another one!!!

5 please bring back guy - JUL 31, 2013

i have seen it and wanted it but cant find it anywhere please bring back


Since having two of these and having a tester I am VERY impressed and the strength of the blade. LOVE IT BRING IT BAAAAACCCCKKKKK NOW.

5 GREAT blabla - JUN 19, 2013

Since I was fortunate to get 2 of these as a gift and I used one as a beater to test the metal and how it holds it s edge. Woodling, droppages, throws, everything and it held an edge and finish very well, almost shaving hair still after all of this abuse. I was very impressed with it I wish it come back so I can gift this to people. All in all if you can possibly get one go for it's a wonderful knife in hand, great handle to. Very good for all activities, hunting, fishing, woodling, etc.

I lost mine. This was the best hunting knife for the money bar none. Please bring back this knife

5 Forest Ranger Hurst Gannon - APR 30, 2013

I use this knife at work - every day. I pry open rigor mortised jaws to extract teeth, I use it to perform wildlife necropsies, and I use it for every other task imaginable. I'll be honest; I really don't treat it the way I should treat such a fine knife, I treat it the way a technician treats his most useful tool. This knife has never let me down; it holds a fantastic edge, it's easy to clean, and it's a perfect shape for an all-around hunting knife. I never leave home without it.

For those of you who lament that it's been discontinued, there's hope: The new version has a TacHide handle (not as nice as the pear, but the blade should be just as good!)

5 Your Title Mitch - FEB 12, 2013

I loved this knife, then some punk stole it from my truck. I would like to replace it but can't find them anywhere now. Really wish you'd bring them back.

5 Hobbyist Dar - OCT 20, 2012

I have owned this knife for a number of years and my friends always ask where they can get their hand on one. Bring it back!

5 retired morgan - AUG 29, 2012

I liked this knife so much, I gave to my son.

5 Bring back the classic!! JIMBO - AUG 10, 2012

Some say that the knife doesn't make the man, but that the man makes the knife. In this case it may be the opposite. This knife gives the common man the ability to do uncommon things. My very first deer was field dressed with this knife. So memories have been made. It's sad to see that such a great piece of craftsmenship became discontinued. My dad always said that everything old becomes new again. I hope I live long enough to see that become true when they bring this classic knife back.

4 awesome knife marcus - JUL 31, 2012

very nice knife! super sharp and has a very good feeling in the hand. perfect for fishing. highly recommend it!

5 Great knife CTP - JUL 20, 2012

I've had my wood handle Freeman for 6 years now. Holds a great edge, re-sharpens easily enough. It's been deerhunting in the New England with me every year and shows little or no wear. Strong woods knife but not too big. Great grip when it's wet. I also wish the sheath were leather (as does another poster) but that is my only complaint.

2 mr fergus - FEB 15, 2012

this looks good and i would buy one but it needs to be available in the uk

Truly the best knife, sharpens nicely and have used mine for many years. The only time I dont wear it is in church. The down side is that I got one of the earlier versions and got a decent leather sheath. No positive clasp to keep it in the sheath though. Now I see other versions with balistic nylon with plastic insert. While I love Gerber knives they need to do better with the sheaths. I would like to see a scout carry with room for a fire starting implement.

the best knife ever
