After making its debut as a brand just earlier this year, Hoo Knives is back and working on a second knife, the V2. The V2 falls into the same knife genre as its predecessor, but with an entirely different look and mechanical characteristics.
Carl Pearson, the man behind Hoo Knives, is a lifelong knife enthusiast from Britain. Thus he created the Hoo Knives V1 as his idea of the perfect UK-friendly EDC knife. The V2 follows in that knife’s footsteps, approaching the same concept from a different angle. Its blade is an 2.9-inch drop point blade, made from S35VN and outfitted with a compound grind. Instead of a flipper, it opens with a thumb stud – albeit one with a bit of a twist. “We have ditched the flipper tab that was on our V1 and for the V2 opted for a removable and adjustable thumb stud, to allow the user to choose their preferred open style and fit,” Pearson explains. “You will be able to flip the V2 open using its thumb stud, the blade will run on ball-bearings with a double detent system to provide smooth action.
If the detent is light enough to flip, i worry about its strength holding it open.View Linked Article
