Gerber’s got a reputation for making delicious baby food made of strained squash, beets and leafy green vegetables.
Oh wait, wrong Gerber. This Gerber has been making quality outdoor knives for nearly 70 years. Gerber was originally formed by an advertising executive who had a set of knives hand-crafted for his best clients.
Once he got a look at those knives, he decided he was in the wrong business.
Advertising’s loss is our gain, as Gerber makes gorgeous, functional knives such as this Freeman Folder.
This knife won the 2004 IWA “International Knife Award” so you know it’s going to be good.
It’s a solid knife, weighing in at 8.2 ounces and measuring just over 8 inches when extended.
It features an open spine for easy cleaning, a grooved finger guard for a sturdy grip, and an oversized lanyard slot.
The blade is a high-carbon stainless steel with a drop point that enhances the tip. It includes a nylon sheath.
The handle is stainless steel with lacquered pear inlays.
