Compact Hunting Knives Come Up Big in the Outdoors

Share Article

Continuing upon their success in the category, CRKT® and Russ Kommer add to the popular Free Range® series. Elks have never looked better dressed in the field.

Free Range Hunter Compact (model 2044)

Developed by Kommer, a professional hunting guide, the two knives feature double injection molded, all weather grip handles that stand up to snow, mud or whatever Mother Nature throws their way. The clip point style blades come in a 3.100” size for the fixed and 3.350” size for the folder. But even at such a small size, their grooves provide a comfortable thumb rest while skinning even trophy-sized big game.

“I’m not usually one to mess with a good thing,” explains Kommer, “But sometimes you just don’t need a full size hunting knife. When I couldn’t find a smaller one I liked, well, I got to work.”

Many in the outdoors will be glad the North Dakota-based craftsman did just that.

The Free Range® Hunter Fixed Blade – Compact knife manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $44.99.

The Free Range® Hunter Lockback Folder– Compact knife manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $44.99.
