Victorinox Hunter Pro

Image courtesy of  Marc Calabria from Facebook The Victorinox Hunter Pro is a very different style of knife for Victorinox. It is not a traditional Swiss Army Knife, but a large folding knife designed for hunting or other tasks requiring simply a large knife blade.

It is the first Victorinox model to feature a lock-back locking mechanism, and uses a new profile for a heavy gauge blade with a new steel composition.

Since the launch of the first model in 2013 a number of different variations and options have been made available.
See History for details and image right.

History and Variations

The Hunter Pro was shown at trade shows in early 2013, and was first made available for sale in April 2013.
Since first availability the models of the Hunter Pro have evolved as described below.
The original four versions were all one-handed opening, in 2019 two-handed opening models were made available.

The Alox models introduced the spring integrated lanyard loop and an integrated smart pocket clip. They are also supplied with a paracord lanyard in a colour to match the scales.
The lanyard loop is now on all models.
Naming and numbering changed for the later models with an M being added for models with a one-handed blade.

The Damascus Limited Edition for 2020 - was a Hunter Pro with a unique pyramidal patterned Damasteel blade and unusual copper brown Alox scales, embossed with a silver-hued Victorinox logo.

Production was limited to 6,000 pieces and the rear panel is engraved with 2020 xxxx 6000 - Where xxxx is the individual serial number.
