HK9 is a hunting knife for the advanced, experienced hunter who knows where to place the blade on the prey. It is also a good all-round knife, feels sturdy in the hand, compact in a way, easy to use, and stable. It does not appear so, but when using the knife you have the feel that it is one of the world’s most advanced hunting knives you have in your hand. If not before, it is noticeable when beginning to cut - the laminate powder steel keeps an edge unbelievably well.

We take pride in our manufacture of exclusive knives which not only offer an elegant and beautiful design but are also practical tools. The polished Damascus steel blade with a core of CowryX powder steel is not only attractive, it is also strong and keeps an edge better than any other steel we know of. We hope therefore that this special version will not be left in a glass cabinet but that the knife will be put to use - luxury in practice!

This knife is delivered with a very well made leather sheath which keeps the knife safely without any snappers. The leather is more than 3 mm thick and, by adding a thick liner along the sewing, the sheath keeps its shape with flying colours. Our idea is that the sheath will fit so tight to your belt that you should be able to push/pull the knife from its sheath by using one hand only. You treat the sheath by keeping it clean and dry, regular shoeshine is OK but not grease which makes the leather soft!
Should you prefer a 100 % water-proof concept we advice you to consider to use the F1 zytel sheath which by chance is fitting the HK9 knife perfectly well!

The simplest way to sharpen the knife is with a fine diamond whetstone, and to obtain that final razor sharpness, use a ceramic whetstone, see our DC3 and DC4 combination whetstones.

We offer a two-year warranty covering defects in materials and in manufacture, i.e. faults that occur during manufacture but which are not noticed until the knife is used. We repair or replace the knife. The warranty is void if the knife is used incorrectly – the knife is intended for cutting with and is not for twisting, bending, chopping or hitting. Discolouring caused by blood, salt-water, or other corrosive substances is not covered by the warranty, neither is a broken tip. The warranty does not include the sheath.
