4" drop point, never used in the field, with sheath. Defreest signed his knives "Gordon," his middle name.

Am asking $295 shipped. Will take personal checks, money orders, cash or PayPal.

Very nice.
One of the great all time, all purpose patterns.

Thanks!

Bill was one of the most highly-regarded knifemakers of his era.

Defreest passed away in 2005, and if memory serves I acquired the knife in the late 1990's, as a tip from a hunter I guided. From the Internet research I've done (Defreest pops right up with a little Googling) he apparently used ATS34 steel a LOT.

Someone got a really good deal. Defreest made some very fine knives.
