I hope you give my knives a try. I engineered my knives based on my twenty year defensive knife training program. The knife is the system and the system is the knife. It uses a rear grip hold that, will not allow the knife to slip in the hand, even, when wet. The hold also extends the blade forward which literally makes the blade longer. The index divots in the handles aren't just smart place to put our really cool and growing collection of handle art, but the thumb and forefinger index points to assure a secure, balanced, and effective, transition between point forward and point down holds. Whether you carry a Hoffner Folder, or one of my fixed blades, your grip, hold, and transition indexes, and muscle memory, are always the same. I designed the best defensive knives in the world and I want them to be yours, PREVAIL!- Brian Hoffner

Don Saathoff, Marine, Cop, Firearms Instructor, ALS Fighter, and Hoffner Knife Builder, built and signed knives to raise money to combat ALS. He asked me to design an engraved version to continue raising money and fighting ALS in his name. Don died Dec 21, 2017. Here is his knife. It is a stunning and beautiful tribute to his life.
