The Freesacpe Paring Knife from Gerber features a traditional paring knife blade shape with a modified sheepsfoot point and flat belly that excels at food prep with its full fine edge. Its steel blade and full tang construction make it functional beyond the camp kitchen, while its small size makes it ideal for peeling or mincing. The rubberized Freescape textured handle provides a sure grip in the hand no matter the conditions. Bright green accents along the black rubber surface draw just enough attention to it so it never gets lost. A durable sheath keeps the knife safe and near at hand on a belt loop or in a gear bag. Convenient lanyard hole offers additional insurance for safe transport. Despite the Freescape's rubberized handle and steel blade, the knife can be sterilized at high temperatures in a dishwasher for a deep, family-friendly clean.
