The Victorinox Swiss Army Hunter Pro M Alox pocket knife is a solid EDC (Every Day Carry) folding knife and in classic Swiss Army form it doesn’t disappoint. The knife handle is ergonomically contoured for your fingers and really feels great in hand.
Also the exterior handle portions of the Hunter Pro M Alox are textured and made of Alox Aluminum so it’s much more durable than your traditional red plastic handles. “Alox scales go through a process called Eloxal which uses anodic oxidation to create a protective layer”
(Victorinox Swiss Army has provided us with the Hunter Pro M Alox knife so that we can bring you our first-hand views and experience with it to our readers.)
The blade is easy to operate and locks securely in place when open. The thumb-hole opening in the blade allows for one-handed operation. The lock requires conscious pressure to unlock to close the knife but the action is super smooth. The blade measures 3.875″ and open the total length measures 9.125″ so it’s a bit larger than your normal Swiss Army pocket knife.

It’s categorized as a large pocket knife but closed the knife measures 5 inches so it is still easy enough to clip the knife to the inside of your front pants pocket without loss of mobility.
On the rear is the built-in engraving plate for those that want to put their name on everything and the smart clip. The Smart Clip is removable though we weren’t able to remove it. It is curved just right and doesn’t seem to snag on anything. Slipping it over the pocket edge or belt was very smooth and easy but felt secure. In pocket we’re able to be completely comfortable, even forgetting it was there inside the front pocket.
Luck favors the prepared and you never know when you might need a little cordage so the Hunter Pro M Alox comes with a paracord pendant just in case… The eyehole for the paracord is a tiny bit small for normal paracord but thinner types worked well.
That’s a Wrap
The Hunter Pro M Alox comes in a steel frame/aluminum housing and stainless steel alloy blade design for durability. Looks amazing, beautiful pocket knife. Great every day carry folding knife or general purpose camping knife. Great gift for any hands-on type of guy.
