Napier Apex Hunt­ing Knives Models 46 and 46D

Air Gunner - - In The News -

Napier of Lon­don has just launched two new hunters’ knives un­der the ‘Apex’ ban­ner, which has be­come the brand as­so­ci­ated with some truly re­mark­able stalk­ers’ kit. In line with the de­vel­op­ment of these prod­ucts a great deal of time and test­ing has been spent in the de­sign for pur­pose and re­li­a­bil­ity which has re­sulted in two beau­ti­ful vari­ants, the Model 46, Stain­less AISI 440c Blade and the 46D of­fered in Da­m­as­cus steel.

The orig­i­nal re­quire­ment was to de­sign a hunter’s knife that could cope with all UK species. Each drop- blade shaped knife is er­gonom­i­cally de­signed with a palm swell Mi­carta han­dle, at­tached to a full tang, best qual­ity blade, along with stain­less bol­sters.

Over the past two years sev­eral pro­to­types were ex­ten­sively tested and pre­sented to in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als for com­ment. The ad­di­tion of some fea­tures such as the top blade rib and brasslined lan­yard eye were fi­nalised through re­search and feed­back as re­cently as IWA 2018. This re­sulted in two su­perb hand­made blades, heavy enough to do the job but well bal­anced and prac­ti­cal in the field.

Each one is pre­sented with a pre­mium qual­ity, tan leather sheath. Slim and well- po­si­tioned for a belt, it fea­tures a strong Napier brass logo, press stud fas­tener, and the dou­ble- stitched, brass­riv­eted, cowhide leather is lined with a lam­i­nate- proofed goat skin, that ren­ders it as prac­ti­cal as a plas­tic- lined ar­ti­cle, but much more ro­bust.

Napier of­fers a 3- year lim­ited war­ranty and each in­di­vid­u­ally num­bered knife is supplied with full in­struc­tions. A bot­tle of APEX edge hon­ing and knife care oil is in­cluded with ev­ery knife to keep it in pris­tine con­di­tion.

The first pro­duc­tion run is lim­ited to just 150 units of each model world­wide, and are avail­able from Napier stock­ists In the UK.
