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.

In 2023 Victorinox released the Evoke family based on the Hunter Pro frame with Alox scales, adding a one-handed-opening thumb-stud to the blade.

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. Two-handed opening models were released in 2019.

  • April 2013 – Release of the initial Hunter Pro with black handles
  • September 2014 – Hunter Pro with orange handles
  • September 2015 - Hunter Pro Wood with Swiss walnut handles

Note: Release dates for different markets may have been later than initial release dates

The Alox models introduced the spring integrated lanyard loop and an integrated smart pocket clip. They were also supplied with a paracord lanyard in a colour that matches the scales.
The lanyard loop was incorporated into all models - ie also the wooden and plastic handled models.
The non-Alox models are provided with an imitation leather sheath.
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. Note: This model has no lanyard loop or cord, also no pocket clip (as is standard with the regular Alox Hunter Pros).
