5.0″ Model 451-5.0 full-tang fixed blade field knife, designed and made by Freeman Outdoor Gear LLC.
The full 3/16″ thick tool steel full tang blade features a main flat grind with a thick secondary swedge for maximum tip toughness and piercing ability. The fuller on both sides of the blade panel reduces weight and adds a purchase point for multiple grips and usage scenarios. Edges around the handle are chamfered for comfort with a hard edge spine and pommel useful for bushcraft and survival tasks.
The exposed pommel with jimping also acts as a flat hammering surface and includes a firestriker notch and a lanyard attachment hole sized for the included 550 cord lanyard.
The blade is heat treated and double tempered to a hardness of 58-60 Rc and the cutting edge is ground razor sharp at a 34 degree included angle (17 degrees per side).
The handle scales are 3D CNC machined and contoured from tough G-10 or Canvas Micarta with palm swell and machined texturing for a secure and comfortable grip. The handle shape provides an ergonomic and balanced grip for use in multiple positions. Enhanced parrot’s beak pommel and lower front guard aid in blade retention during chopping. Both the guard and pommel feature machined slots for additional user-added lanyard cord attachment points. Stainless steel and black oxide coated hardware locks all the components into place.
Included is a handmade leather Ramos Mountaineer sheath with a fire starter rod. This sheath is extremely nice, can be carried vertical or pathfinder style. The sheath was custom handmade to fit the Freeman 5″ field knife specifically. The sheath alone is a $110 value.
This is a premium 100% US-made field knife designed to excel in multiple cutting chores under the most demanding conditions.
