As a longtime Alaskan hunting and fishing guide, custom knife-maker Russ Kommer has pretty much seen it all over the years when it comes to outdoor knives. Outdoorsmen choose their particular knives based on a variety of reasons from function, feel, looks, and overall value considerationswhich is exactly where the Free Range Hunters come in. This series of fixed blades and lockback folding hunting knives feature high hollow ground blades in clip and drop point blade styles.
Handles are comfortably shaped and the optimally sized finger grooves help to provide grip confidence equally well for both large, or small hands. A double injection mold process of both hard and soft polymers creates an ideal all-weather, textured handle surface. All Free Range hunting knives come with their own high strength nylon fabric belt sheaths for convenient, comfortable carry.
If you are the type that enjoys adventuring outdoors, you owe it to yourself to have the right cutting tool to make life outdoors more enjoyable. The Free Range™ Hunter series of hunting knives is destined to be a part of many an outdoor adventure for years to come!
The knife is lighter than the knife I currently own, but works as well, if not better than that knife. Blade is sturdy, holds an edge well. Grip is comfortable in the hand, even when used upside down. My friend that used it felt the gut hook was too narrow, but I didn't notice any difference in performance. Overall an awesome knife

I test this knife thru stuff stuff. The weight of the kommer was awsome, the blade was razor sharp and when I did sharpen it, I used a soft stone it sharpened very nicely. The only real flaw I found was the strap on the sheath, and for me I have big hands and would have liked a slightly larger handle. Over all these are just observations NOT COMPLAINTS.. I hope to test more CRKT products. I am sure I will carry this knife for years to come. Thanks

My first impression on the knife was, "Wow that's a nice knife." It has a sleek design with a rubber inlayed handle to reduce slipping with wet hands. I particularly liked the finger indents. The handle will accommodate small to medium hands well without fatigue. The blade has a skinner sweep and belly for those tough skinning jobs. Unfortunately I was not able to use the gut hook but it seems adequate. Out of the box sharpness wasn't what I expected for a CRKT product, however a little touch-up on the steel and it was good to go. The sheath was just as impressive as the knife. The knife snaps into a plastic insert in the cordura sheath
