Victorinox has introduced some new models. The company, known for its ubiquitous Swiss Army Knives, now is offering a line of single-blade locking folders known as the Evoke Collection. In addition this year’s limited edition knife is a wooden-handled Companion model.
The 2023 Evoke Collection features what amounts to updated versions of the Victorinox Hunter Pro folders. But that simply means they’ve made a good thing even better. These are available with either Alox or wood handles. Each has a sturdy back lock to secure the four-inch blade open and a lanyard hole. Unlike the Hunter Pro models, the Evoke knives feature thumb studs for easy one-handed opening. Those thumb studs are removable. Each new Evoke also sports a pocket clip.
The Evoke Alox features a satin-finished drop-point blade. It’s available in red, sliver, and red/blue combination, and also features a paracord fob or pendant attached to the lanyard hole.
The Evoke BS Evoke features a drop-point blade with black finish. It’s available with either a black or beige handle. The Evoke BSH Evoke features a clip-point blade with black finish. It’s available with either olive green or navy camouflage handle. Neither the BS Evoke nor the BSH Evoke includes the paracord pendant.
The Wood Evoke features a walnut handle and a satin-finished drop-point blade. The Alox models have an MSRP of $120, while the wood version has a suggested price of $140.
