Victorinox—the proprietor of the legendary Swiss Army knife and, more recently, these remarkably sharp FieldForce GMT watches—has unveiled a special-edition model that's limited to just 6,000 serialized examples.
Billed as collector-worthy everyday carry equipment that's suited to outdoor and urban environments, the latest Hunter Pro knife features a 5.1-inch blade made using a Damast, a variety of the Damascus technique that originated in Syria.
Premium Indian wootz steel was layered 125 times to create an eye-catching pyramidal pattern. Meanwhile, the handle's fan-favorite Alox scales—first introduced on the Victorinox Pioneer in 1957—were punched from aluminum, embossed, and hardened with an oxide layer to achieve a copper-brown color.
The Hunter Pro is decidedly simpler in design than the mutli-function Swiss Army knives, which vary from eight-tool Pioneer to the 82-piece Swiss Champ XAVT, which is equipped with a fish scaler and a pharmaceutical spatula.
The Hunter Pro Alox Damast Limited Edition 2020 is available to order now on Victorinox's website for $400.
