You probably know Victorinox through its iconic flagship, the Swiss Army Knife. There’s a chance you know it through its affordable yet reliable kitchen knives. And if watches rank in your interests, you might even know Victorinox for its timepieces. But you probably do not know the Swiss company for its hunting knives, and that’s precisely why you should take note of the new limited-edition Hunter Pro Alox Damast that the brand just released.
When you think “hunting knife,” you probably envision a classic, old-timey number with a wooden handle — or maybe one made of bone or antler — and a curvy clip-point blade that tapers to a narrow tip. That’s not the Hunter Pro Alox Damast. The knife that Victorinox refers to as inspiration, the Hunter Pro, does reference classic hunting blades more directly, but this limited edition is something entirely different.
The knife’s Alox handles are corrosion-resistant embossed aluminum, and its 3.75-inch blade is a simple drop point. It’s also made of Damascus steel, which, while providing performance benefits hunters would appreciate, is undoubtedly more for show. Make another note that all these features add up to a final price tag totaling $400, too. So if the Hunter Pro Alox Damast doesn’t look like your idea of a hunting knife, that might be because it makes a strong case as a high-end everyday carry blade. (But that doesn’t mean you can’t bring it into the woods with you.)
