Still think the crooked logo looks ridiculous. If it were not for that I would buy one. Make it smaller and straighten it out.

I kinda like it. I think it makes it look quicker... :whistle:
It wouldn’t stop me from buying one for sure.

I might like a OHT in Alox. Red Alox, brass liners other than the lock- and fix it so it is right for righties.

But this looks like a spyderco product. Not that there is anything wrong with them. If you like that kind of thing.

It looks ok but it’s just a single blade lockback in a budget steel, $100 seems steep. Not a big fan of the saber grind or the bead blast finish on the blade. They should totally make it on Damascus though.  :D

Just keep in mind the price it must have cost Vic to design and produce something like this. ;)
Especially for something that doesn’t seem to be as popular, sales-wise, as a OHT.

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

I find it beautiful in style " alox " I have the Hunter wood pro which is beautiful whose blade is steel stainless 1.4419 hardness Rockwell 56 HRC. We can think that the new will be made in the same steel

Nope. I still recall the initial Syph review of this knife way back when this series was released in plastic.

To me, it resembles the lower end Spyderco Byrd line, only poorly executed.

Can do much better in a pocket clipped lockback in this size range for the cost of one of these. Better steel too.

But, if ya gotta have one in alox..........

It's a nice design, but I feel the steel is a bit too low-end for an $100 knife, especially one of its size.  Eickhorn though, uses 440A on their $150 PRTs. And isn't 440A similar to Vic's steel?

I just got mine today, and I'm pleased though it's bigger than I normally carry for my everyday tasks. I'd never held a regular Pro Hunter, so I didn't know what to expect before ordering. I think if they made a 3/4 sized version it would be perfect for me. Something EDC size would allow me to get rid of a lot of other folders. I'm also dreaming of more colors.

Nice! I'd love to see pics of it if you're able!

I use honing steel on my SAK blades all the time to great effect.  ???

I'm happy for you. ???

At this price point a better steel should be a piece of cake.Many other manufactures are able to offer a premium steel at this price point,so why not Victorinox?

I can order a Buck from their Custom Shop and specify S30V for $96.50.

And SK Blades has had both the 110LT Smokejumper (red scales, clip blade) and Shield (just came out, blue scales, drop point blade) with CPM-154 blades for under $40.

Don't know if I like it or not. Haven't seen it in real life, only on pics.

Vx could make this knife much much cheaper, if.... they would produce it in China or so. BUT they don't, and that's why it is somewhat more expensive as similar knives from other knife companies which out source much.
