Hunter

Hunter The Hunter is a 111mm liner-locking Victorinox Swiss Army Knife. This model includes a small curved gutting blade with a serrated edge, as well as the 111mm version of the Combo Tool (openers/screwdriver). Neither of these tools are very common.

It has been available with various different scale options (red/ green/ camouflage) and also a Phillips Screwdriver variation.

The original version of this model was slide-locking. The slide-lock version of this model was quite light-weight, given the tool selection and compared to other 111mm models.

Name disambiguation: There is also a 108mm Hunter/Safari Hunter model.

Scales 

Standard red, also olive drab synthetic scales, with a screen-printed image of a deer on the front handle. It is also available with camouflage coloured scales (2008), without the deer image. Early versions did not have the deer image printed on the scales.

Variations 

  1. The Official RAF Hunter was issued to members of the Royal Air Force. See: SOSAK Article: Victorinox RAF Hunter - June 2008. (Note: Link broken)
  2. The 2008 camouflage model replaced the corkscrew with a Phillips screwdriver, however neither the name or model number was changed!
  3. A D-Day Commemorative special run was made in 2010 featuring army coloured olive drab scales and a special printing on the top scale. The main blade tang stamp is VICTORINOX/SWISS MADE.
  4. A second D-Day Commemorative special run was made (2011?) featuring the same army coloured olive drab scales, and a special printing on the top scale with an illustration of the iconic Willy’s Jeep. Production is reported to be only fifty pieces.

History 

In 2017 Victorinox completely revised their 111mm product line and ceased production of slide-lock models. The Hunter was converted to be liner-locking as part of that change.
