5Excellent Hunting Knife
By Hook'nBull
The blade on this knife makes it an excellent hunting knife. I own a few other knives (Buck, Case, Victorinox, Wenger and others) but the S30V steel in the Gerber Freeman Stag makes it the best cutting knife in the bunch. Edge retention is outstanding and out of the box the knife was the sharpest I've ever held in my hand. The stag handle adds a touch of classic ruggedness that I've come to appreciate. It also comes with a good quality leather sheath which is something that's not too common with knife purchases anymore.

I had looked in many sporting good stores and they all had the knife listed for around $120.00...some even more. It's worth the $120.00+ which makes it an exceptional value in this listing. I purchased the knife about a month ago when it was being sold directly from Amazon and the shipping was free. I see now that it's listed by Big Edge Sports.

The only second thought was whether I should have purchased the gut-hook model. Personally, I don't like the idea of having to sharpen a gut-hook on any knife but since this knife holds an edge exceptionally well, I think the hook could cut several hides before it would need to be resharpened.

I highly recommend the knife...

5Nice skinning knife at a good price.
By Delta
This knife was not razor sharp out of the box so if you do not sharpen knives it is something to consider. (of-course if you do not sharpen knives I don't know what business you have buying them...All knives need sharpening at some point.)

This blade is a really nice size and weight for the application it is designed for. The steel quality is the best you can get for the price. (pretty much the best unless it is a custom job in the >$100 range; ie: Damascus)

The handle I got was a bit on the rough side and I smoothed it out a bit with a high-grade nail file. The handle is comfortable, fits well in my hand, and rugged looking.

The sheath is a good leather sheath and not too bad looking either. I like the single snap to free the blade. Overall the sheath is very simple, holds the blade still, and does what it is designed for.

I just wanted to reiterate the steel quality is really good! It is rust resistant as any stainless, and tough/edge holding as a high carbon steel. If you have any question of this just look up S30V... good stuff!

3flawed handle design
By Mark Hansen
I purchased this knife back in 2009. I was attracted to it by the materials and the price.
Once I held it in my hand I was disappointed with the design. I find the design of the handle to be uncomfortable to the point of being an irritation.
The steel and handle materials are very good but the design of the handle grip is in my estimation a poor design as far as ergonomics. The end of the handle grip digs into the heel of my hand to the point of hurting my hand. I rarely use this knife because of the design of the grip and the irritation it causes on my hand.
I actually considered changing this knife to remove the metal from the heel of the grip to make it more comfortable to use. I may take it to my grinder one day but I haven't done it yet.
