Hoo Knives is kicking off 2023 by revealing the first renders of its next knife model, the V3. Like its two predecessors, the V3 delivers an enthusiast-grade EDC knife that still conforms to strict UK knife laws.
When Hoo Knives opened its doors in 2021, it was with the express purpose of catering to knife enthusiasts in the UK, who have to deal with very strict knife laws. It was also an attempt on the behalf of founder Craig Pearson to channel the history of English knife making, a rich tradition that had dwindled to a shadow of its former self by the start of the 21st century. Pearson’s first design, the V1, started as his ideal UK EDC; the V2 followed later on, offering a second take on the same concept.
Hoo Knives. Or perhaps Who? I haven’t heard of them. They aren’t on the SHOT Show exhibitor list, nor have I ever seen them at Blade. So your guess is as good as mine.
