Russ Kommer, designer of the Free Range lineup is a professional hunting guide from North Dakota. This set of knives is designed to tackle hunting chores efficiently with safety in mind. Each is equipped with a rubberized grip for all-weather comfort and the blades are hollow ground with long sweeping cutting edges that makes quick work of game. The Small Folding Blade is a one-hand opener for those jobs that require an easy access folder and the larger Fixed Blade model tackles bigger jobs without a problem.
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. This Free Range Hunter series of hunting knives feature high hollow ground blades in clip and drop point blade styles.

Just got it. The handle is to thin and is not even as long as the handle for the 2041 folder, which I just got also. Sheath seems sufficient and has a liner with a pocket for a stone - but no stone or diamond sharpener, c'mon CRKT! A little disappointed in the handle or would be a 5 star knife.
Its alright. Seems a little cheap, not like most CRKT knives.
Cons:The knife does not seem like it a full tang, but I do not know that for a fact.
Indifference: The shape of the blade is a little bit different, I haven't had to field dress anything yet, seems functional but a different design than I am used to.
Pros: The grip is really nice, fits the hand well. The blade is extremely sharp out of the box. Sheath is also pretty nice, locks the knife in well.
