Freeman Outdoor Gear

Whether you realize it or not, you already know at least a little something about Freeman Outdoor Gear (FOG) and their knife making pedigree. Jeff Freeman, the owner, is the designer of some of the most recognizable designs to come out of a certain “Legendary” knife manufacturer based in Oregon. He has now started his own brand and, judging by the initial offerings, that is good news for all of us.

The first design from FOG, the 451, is a looker. It seems to successfully straddle the lines between the outdoors/hunting knife genre and the tactical/survival genre. It is available in 2 sizes – the regular 451 with a 4″ blade and a compact version with 3.25″ blade. FOG grinds both knives from CPMS35VN which is an impressive steel that I find to be somewhat like a tougher, easier to sharpen version of S30V. The knives feature machined G-10 handle slabs and come with functional kydex sheaths.

You can create your own sharp looking color combination when you order a 451. The G-10 slabs are available in a number of colors and the blade is Cerakoted in your choice of colors.

These knives are not inexpensive but they do seem to offer a great value. I am not aware of any other fixed blade knives made from S35VN with a similar feature set in this price range.

Check out Freeman Outdoor Gear and see the knives at BladeHQ.
