TVJ hunter is a knife made to meet the needs of the hunter. With its short narrow blade it’s optimized for gutting and skinning game and the 3mm thick blade ensures that it’s strong enough to withstand even the most demanding tasks that you might need it for. The TVJ Hunter comes with the options of a G10 or wood handle and the sheath is made in leather. Like all the TVJ knives it’s made to be used, and built to last!
Thomas is very inspired by the old scandinavian traditions of knifemaking. It has a scandi grind, and a very “soft” handle that can be used for hours without hotspots. Use a leather strap, leather boot to hone it and keep it sharp, and use a drop of oil on the blade and handle to keep it from drying out/rust. Thomas likes the blackened Hunter alot due to the feel, look, and the fact that the blackened blade requires less maintenance.
