The Safari Mini-Hunter is ergonomic, balanced, and technically superb to use in the field for hunting, or as a camp knife for food preparation.

Here’s an explanation of how the Safari was born, by knife designer Alan Wood:

“The initial concept was to attempt to design a hunter’s knife that produced a tool of minimum dimensions which was still efficient to use. At first, it was for the large proportion of British deerstalkers who hunt the smaller species such as Roe and Muntjac. However, it was also picked up by others such as the Swedish hunter Jeppe Stridh as an ideal cutting tool for his country’s moose hunters, when used in combination with a forest axe. Further research has shown that it is also an adequate and popular compact belt accessory for those on safari, hence the name. Basically, an easily carried tool that can be used to remove the viscera and to perform basic skinning to save a trophy cape when far from the vehicle’s tool kit.”
- Alan Wood
