Fremont Knives was named after Fremont County, Wyoming, where we live the modern western dream. Out here, our values have not really changed all that much, even though the world has. We moved here 6 years ago and found that a lot of our friends are pretty outdoor oriented and love the rugged country and the self sufficient people that live here. Since my background was working for a large knife company for 14 years, we decided to make a few knives for the folks who are looking for a quality , USA made tool that will last a life time.

We reached out to Mike Draper, who has been a custom knife maker for over 10 years in Riverton Wyoming for the design of our first knives. Mike graciously licensed his design to us and really gets the kind of folks we are trying to reach with these great quality knives. The Draper folder and Draper Fixed Hunter are amazing tools which we have already put to use daily and out in the field, dressing out big game. These designs totally work and are truly something we can be proud of.
We choose to live, work and play in the west, out here "Survival", "Self Reliance", "Honesty" and "Integrity" are not themes of a marketing strategy or the punchline to a trendy "Doomsday Prepper" joke, they are things we do every day, all day. We don't always need a knife, but we typically feel out of place with out one in our pocket. When the need arises for the use of a quality knife, we reach for a "Fremont knife." 
Fremont Knives has created a new brand of knives and tools that reflect our way of life in the west, one of self reliance and outdoor sport whether we are hunting, camping, fishing or whatever. We live pretty close to some pretty wild country and we rely on tools that will do a tough job whenever needed. We will try and make them in the U.S.A. when we can, but we also are mindful of folks like us who make it a priority to live in wild places where there are not a lot of high paying jobs and affordability is pretty important.
