Gerber Freeman Folder Gut Hook
Building on the style and success of the award winning Freeman Hunter fixed blade, Gerber introduces the Freeman Folder ..a folding knife designed by hunters for hunters. This knife features the same distinctive lacquered pear wood grips, positive grip finger grooves and ambidextrous thumb studs for safe opening by either hand. Open liner lock mechanism allows for easy cleaning. The 3.5 inch drop point blade is made from 440A stainless steel Rockwell hardness of 57known for it's edge retention and when needed, quick sharpening.
In 1939 Joseph Gerber hired a local knife maker to build 25 sets of kitchen cutlery to be given as Christmas gifts. The knives were so popular that Joseph Gerber left his advertising agency to start Gerber Legendary Blades®. The unique style and high quality manufacturing of Gerber cutlery soon developed wide spread acclaim. In fact, Gerber Legendary Blades are the only cutlery on display in New York�?s famous Museum of Modern Art.
From very early on, Gerber collaborated with top knife designers, setting a standard of quality for everyone else to follow. Renowned designers such as Al Mar, Bob Loveless, Paul Poehlmann, "Blackie" Collins, William Harsey Jr. and Ernest Emerson have all designed knives for Gerber. In 2002 this tradition continued as Gerber released the Silver Trident�?, designed by Chief James "Patches" Watson (U.S.N. Ret.) and Bill Harsey Jr.
Today, Gerber continues to design and manufacture unique, high quality outdoor recreation products. In 2003 we are proud to introduce the next generation of multi-tools: the Recoil�? Auto-Plier. By constantly utilizing new technology and innovative design to develop new products, Gerber continues to be an industry leader.
