This is our first true hunting knife, built upon centuries of the knife-making art in our part of the world. This strong, straight and very handy knife dates its origin from the ancient times of North-Scandinavian knife-making. Due to this heritage, it lacks a standard finger guard, but the grip safety is enhanced by the ergonomically shaped handle made of Thermorun plastic with a textured pattern. With a handle this shape, you should be an experienced hunter or outdoorsman to ensure you can safely handle such a classic yet advanced design as the H1 Hunting Knife.
The sheath is an injection molded, super strong zytel sheath. The benefit is that the zytel sheath can easily be cleaned.
The blade for the H1 is available in Laminated VG10 or Laminated 3G Steel
The design of the H1 blade is special, so let us comment on its shape. First of all, a hunting knife may look very different and still work very well - in many respects it depends on the person actually holding the knife as to how it will perform. If you don't know how to place the correct incision into game, it doesn't matter what kind of knife you're working with. It will end up in bad cuts, hair on the meat, thru-cut body membranes and blood all over the game and you. However, the combination of a skilled hunter and a well-designed knife is unbeatable! The incisions are well placed, the game is clean with hair only on the outside, no cuts into the meat, etc.
The optimal hunting knife looks like the Model H1! It's rubbish to say that hunting knives should have blades at lengths of 2". We say that the perfect length is around 4-5" - just take a look at the equipment of a professional butcher! Still, the length must be combined with a design which offers both a long, effective skinning edge and - very importantly - a tip which is shaped for penetration performance, because a knife has two functions, the edge and the tip. The tip of this knife is designed for penetrating the hide without cutting into the meat when you start skinning your game.
The Model H1 will surely be your first choice for such use, as everything on this knife is matched for maximum capability in countless situations: the sharp, strong and tough steel, the 0.2" blade thickness, the razor-sharp convex-ground blade, the straight, ergonomic handle in tacky Kraton rubber, and the extremely compact size. Among experienced hunters and true outdoorsmen the H1 Hunting Knife will become the obvious choice; the lack of finger guards is no loss for those who can handle a knife.
