At the request of U.S. Special Forces Personnel, Brian Hoffner has added the Special Forces Hand Spear to the line. They wanted D2 Steel for the blade so we made it happen. We are able to get two more hardness points for the Special Forces blade, 58-60 HRC over the 56-58 for the standard Hand Spear. They also wanted the serrations on the blade which we delivered as well. It’s still the great Hand Spear Design that is the perfect everyday carry fixed blade for police, SWAT, military professionals, and citizens alike. So well balanced, it is a strong and powerful full tang knife that is incredibly ergonomic, but beautiful as well. With a handle that matches the Hoffner folder, including the Index Divots, muscle memory is the same. Whether in the sands of Afghanistan on the kit of the American Warrior, or in the wilderness on the belt of the American Hunter, the Hand Spear is American perfection.
Brian Hoffner designed the Best Defensive Knife on the planet! Here’s why:
Revolutionary – The Hand Spear is the perfect Everyday Carry Fixed Blade. it’s great for opening boxes and eating apples, but the handle is ultimately engineered for defense. It has a rear grip hold system, meant to be held at the rear of the grip in both the point down and point forward position. The handle is specifically and ergonomically designed to be held at the butt of the handle. That’s why all that jimping is there, to keep it from sliding in your hand. This feature gives you the entire blade, plus an additional two inches of reach. Get to know your knife through touch. How it feels in your hand tells you how your knife is positioned for use. It also gives you a powerful hold on the knife, without the need for a hilt. See those holes in the handle? Those are Index Divots, a unique Hoffner Invention to keep your grip transitions secure and balanced between point down and point forward. When you hold this knife and when you transition between grips… it’s not going anywhere but where you want it!
Grippy – The G10 that we use for the handles is the grippiest and best material that can be put on a knife handle. It’s textured for grip, as well as strong, hard, stain resistant, rugged, waterproof, lightweight, stable, and beautiful.
D2 Steel – Special Forces Operators asked for D2 and we delivered. It’s hardened to 58-60 HRC, two points higher than the Standard hand Spear. Harder, longer, stronger, which means that it will take an edge and hold an edge, as well as excellent resistance to wear. This is one tough special forces blade folks!
Breeds Confidence – Dedicate just a little time each day to practicing the transition between holds with the index divots, and all you have to do is block or move the blade in your defense until the threat is stopped. It’s so easy, you will be confident that you can defend yourself like a knife black belt.
The Hoffner Hand Spear is a must for the pocket of every American dedicated to self-defense and the protection of family- Brian Hoffner
