This is a new model with solid carbon fiber handles. Handles have traction grooves and a Freeman Eagle logo milled into one side. This makes for the lightest 451 folder to date. New finish on the S45VN blade also. Fantastic knife!
The Freeman 451 folders are one of the slickest and quickest flippers on the market. The blade is running on bearing washers and is super slick opening and closing. The button plunger lock provides effortless one hand opening and closing and the lockup is tight and precise. The Freeman’s are made on a CNC and are the upmost in precision and quality. Jeff puts a lot of effort in the smallest details on this knife and it shows in the fit finish and quality of the knife. You will not be disappointed in this knife.
