Get the Snap! Brian Hoffner Designed this knife as the workhorse everyday carry folder for his renowned defensive knife system. A system so easy to learn, and simple to use confidently to protect self and family. Lightweight and slim, this folder is easy to carry but is explosive defensively with the world’s fastest deployment, the “Snap”.  Hoffner “Index Divots” provide a secure and balanced transition between holds. This knife is a must in the pocket of every American, whether they need to open a box or defend their life!

Brian Hoffner designed the Best Defensive Knife on the planet!  Here’s why:

Revolutionary – It’s a great American pocket knife, perfect 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, when you transition between grips… it’s not going anywhere but where you want it!

Fast as a SNAP- The ambidextrous clip allows you to carry the knife on either side of your body with the point down so that it can be deployed with the “SNAP” opening.  This is a huge advantage because there are no buttons to find and no thumb stud is required.  It’s a gross motor skill and it’s the fastest defensive deployment in the world to the powerful and defensive point-down position.  It cannot be beat!

Versatile – It is a less lethal option with an impact weapon surface as well as a pain compliance tool.  If the situation gets deadly, the blade is only a snap away.

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.

440C Super Steel – We use the first, and still the best, Super Steel.  The high Chromium content is what makes it truly stainless, it won’t rust or pit in your sweaty pocket.  It’s hardened to 56-58 HRC, which means that it will take an edge and hold an edge, as well as excellent resistance to wear. This is one tough blade folks!

Breeds Confidence – Dedicate just a little time each day to practicing the Snap deployment, transitioning 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 Folding Knife is a must for the pocket of every American dedicated to self-defense and the protection of family- Brian Hoffner
