Red Hunter Pro
« on: December 11, 2018, 08:16:34 AM »
So, there's a new Hunter Pro coming in January 2019. Red alox scales and a non one-handed blade.

Any thoughts?
Has anyone seen it in the flesh?

Could be.
But I'm guessing: real.

Was new to me, but after a quick search there are plenty of information about a one handed alox hunter in silver, so the red one is no fake I guess.
Price for the silver one 99 Euro: http://www.schweizer-messer-store.de/Victorinox-Hunter-Pro-Alox

I would prefer it in a one-hand blade. The red is a nice color for sure.  :like:

It’s supposed to be available in the US by the  end of the month... and maybe even the rest of the world... Seen some posts of the actual knife... Owner bought it from the flagship store in Zurich...

No thumbhole and nail nick... but plenty of real estate to pinch hold the blade open...

I find deciding is the easy part, the hard part is getting it in the house past "she who should be obeyed"

I saw one at a knife dealer last weekend. It looked sweet. 100 bucks on the price tag. I can see this in my future in 2019.  :drool:

It seems comparable to the cold steel code 4, but a lesser steel.

I’ll be tempted if it goes on sale.

Don’t think I’m going to use the pocket clip as it’s a bit hefty and not legal edc for me. However it could see some use at work and will got into my jacket pocket.
    Usual amazing Vic quality and zero blade play. I’ll get some side by side pics up with other popular folders shortly.
