Freeman Folder - Gut Hook, Fine Edge
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.

Why would they discontinue this i was going to buy another because i lost my other one camping
It was a gift from my girlfriend and its a pretty serious bit of kit. Feels really solid in my hand. The gut hook is a bit of a pain to sharpen but its possible worth the 60$
It is simply the best knife I have ever owned! The only disadvantage that i can find is the blade dulls after one feild dressing. Other than that i highly recomend it.
