Having a fancy folding knife doesn't mean much if you're fumbling to get it open when it counts. Especially when you're working with your hands in the outdoors, wearing gloves to fight off the cold. This is exactly the type of environment the Victorinox Hunter was designed to thrive in. With a large blade, easy-opening thumb hole, and ergonomic handles, its simple efficiency gets the job done.

Its 4” blade comes in a high carbon stainless steel making it ideal for rough conditions, not to mention being easy to re-sharpen. Thanks to the extra-large thumb opening, one-handed deployment of the blade is easy whether or not you're wearing gloves. It stays in place during use thanks to a lockback sytem built into the Hunter's contoured handles, shaped to help you get a better handle on the larger knife. An included nylon belt pouch even lets you carry the Hunter as part of your EDC or strapped to your outdoor pack.

In the great outdoors, simplicity spells efficiency. Grab the walnut wood version at the Amazon link below, or check it out in black or hi-vis orange with textured polyamide scales.

No thank you. I've field dressed many a deer on cold north eastern mornings and evenings. It's hard enough to get the fat off a fixed blade. A hunting knife should be straight forward, sharp, practical, and tough. Like the men who use it for it's intended purpose aspire to be.
I do not hunt, but it does seem like a fixed blade would be the best option for field dressing game. This is more of a over-capable food prep blade? Very un-victorinox on my book.
I do own this, and I can say it is practical and tough; even capable of splitting small wood in an emergency. The locking mechanism is extremely strong. I do agree that without being able to take it apart, cleaning it is a chore. However, the Buck 110 has this same characteristic and it is perhaps the most famous hunting folder ever made. When hunting from a treestand, wearing a harness and seated where a fixed blade can get in the way, I think this is a pretty solid choice from a good manufacturer.
