Description

William Gordon Defreest made some of the cleanest and most beautiful Hunters and Skinners that I have ever come across.  If you are not familiar with his work you owe it to yourself to seek out a couple of his knives for your collection.

A Barber by trade in the 1970’s Bill had a desire to make a knife of his own so he sought out the closest person that he could find that could teach him, a man who at that time had already begun making a name for himself in the small community of Knife Makers – George Herron.  

Bill studied with George and by all accounts was a quick student.  Most of Bill’s knives will exhibit the Herron influences – clean design, a fine Mirror Polish, Tapered Tang, superb ergonomics and this knife has all those features and more. 

Flawless Pre-CITES Elephant Ivory scales with Black Liners, Nickel Silver Bolsters and a gentle swell to the Butt make this knife a joy to behold.
