Boasting nearly two decades of knife design experience and functioning as a professional hunting and fishing guide since the early 1980s, Russ Kommer definitely knows a thing or two about hard-use cutting tools. And that made him the perfect person for Fox Knives to call upon for a new trio of knives under the Alaskan Hunter name.
With even a cursory glance, you can tell that Kommer took inspiration from tactical karambit knives for these designs, evidenced by their curved ergonomic G10 handles. However, rather than hawkbill blades, these ones feature more-versatile drop point blade shapes — making them excellent for a wider variety of uses, furthered by their BECUT stainless steel construction and durable black Idroglider finish. And while two of them, the FX-620 B and FX-621 B are both fixed blades (and come with leather sheaths), the third (FX-622 B) is a smaller-format folder that’s more easily stashed and concealed. Pricing has yet to be unveiled, but we expect these knives to hit dealers relatively soon.
