Hunter Red


Grown Ups Swiss Army Knife!

During the last years Victorinox transformed many 111mm models from the slide-lock category into the rugged liner-locking category. One of these is the Hunter model and this is also my latest SAK. It is mentioned that Victorinox stopped making the older category all together. If some models should continue I would not be surprised. We will see but from the facts it is obvious that one after another model is transformed.

I really enjoy both categories and it is for sure no negative thing that the rugged models are appearing like pearls on a string. It is a much tougher and stronger design and you get what I call a Grown Ups SAK. The only negative if we could call it negative is the extra weight this construction yield. If used correctly the slide-lock model worked great for Hunters and so forth. Now it is better.

Most of you already know the selection of functions you find on the Hunter model so I will only show a few. Perhaps the function that is the most interesting for people is the combination tool with flat screwdriver, notch and cap opener. The combination tool can also be used as a can opener as well. This combination tool is 2,2mm+

The gutting blade with wavy edge is very sharp and can be used for much more. The combination of the large locking nail-nick blade and the wavy edge curved blade you have a serious combination. The Hunter model got a basic set of functions. This selection of functions stands out to be one of the best.  My latest SAK is a professional tool because it is made with the Services Range construction. Many of you also know that the older design had an evolution for the locking mechanism with the improved design that had a closed spring design for it. Before this again it was open.

It is also important to know that the Services Range is not a completely new category. It is from the early 1990s and several special models must have been made in history.




The combination tool can be used fully or half open..........

Greetings from Hungary! Did you know that the head curve "inspired" the Spyderco Hungarian folder?
Exactly by a Hungarian designer who works for Spyderco (I can't remember his name)
