Today, we’re going to take a look at a profoundly weird knife, which is also quite good, the HEAdesigns Hunter.

Do many people diy customize their knives? And is there a site that they post their projects on?
Like the blade kind of swish like. Hate the handle flare. Just my opinion
Don’t care for this super fragile tip…
I really liked it… until you said G10
Viper Knives’ Voxnaes Belone is $25 less on Blade HQ…M390 blade (slightly longer, at 3.3″), full titanium handles. Haven’t handled either, so I cannot compare action/ergos.
I personally think the Belone is prettier though (especially the blue/silver one)…So, yeah. The price on this isn’t where it should be, IMO.
HEA should make it with steel/G10 handles and a D2 or 14c28n blade, and charge $50-70 for it, Then they might be on to something.
I actually like the design, but…you can get a G10 with M390 WE for under $150. The price point vs materials is a bit out of whack there. Damn shame, or I would’ve bought it, cuz I’m a sucker for clip points.
So, basically what you’re saying is that if the Primordial by Adam Purvis had a front flipper tab, that this knife would be irrelevant.
Yeah when I just bought a boos smoke and hound for 220 and am about to buy a trm neutron at 160-180 this is a pass for the steel/price.
Cool little design,but you’re right for the price point and blade steel. $150 would have been a better price. I’m guessing more sales too.
Why is it so stabby?
I’m with you in the 154cm. It’s a great steel, but over about $150 I feel like I should be getting something higher end, especially if Boos can make his knives in China for $220 and use M390.
And really, for any problems they may have with their OEM, Giant Mouse knives using M390 for around $175 is a shot across the bow to a lot of other manufacturers.
Heck, the DLT exclusive Manix 2 was $130 and had 20CV with US manufacturing.
I have been waiting for a Benchmade fact review but it’s ok if you never review another Benchmade
Is it perhaps a small three-finger folder with an excellent place for your fourth (little) finger? Just a thought. I thinks it’s lovely. (P.S. You mentioned at the end something about Massdrop Spyderco knives? I’ve been waiting ten months for my Supergold Endura!!).
Love mine, and the designer is a really great guy. 154CM is a nice steel for folders.
It’s kinda crazy how quickly we start considering what was once higher end steels with less and less regard.
love the Dodgeball reference.
Haha, I forgot the comb was S35VN! That made my day.
I agree you can find a better knife for the same amount of money
154cm you praised in older reviews for ease of sharpening. Seems like a great choice for a user with a thin tip. $200 is a total miss for this knife. $140, total hit.
Better than spending money on a benchmade
I absolutely love the handle on this, but the blade is just a little weird
Cuttin’ corners with 154CM. Ha! Nice one.
Turning on CCs for this video makes the viewing experience a whole other level of entertaining. Nick I don’t think Google knows what to do with your accent, so they’ve opted for “fuck it, here’s some words”.
It looks a little pointy to me…
About three inches….That’s what she said, amiright fellas.
Cool looking knife , would worry about tip breaking off with rough use , not for me
That’s not good price at all for that steel very unimpressive like the lnofe though
The design of this really grew on me over the course of this video.
Nice Dodgeball reference, apparently noone else caught it haha.
