Best selling Hunting knife – The Vivo
Although one of Louis Naude’s earliest designs, the Vivo still remains a best selling hunting knife. The ever popular Vivo is still produced because of high demand for this versatile and lightweight hand hugging knife.
The Vivo’s blade and handle is very similar to the blade and handle of the Vivo Integral but without the integral finger guard.
The blade is made from N690 and is considered one of the best martensitic stainless steels manufactured in Austria by Bohler. Bohler N690 is tough and wear resistant. It is highly corrosion resistant and the content of elements in the steel lends itself to a superb final matte finish. The finger grooves on the leadwood handle provides a comfortable grip.
The knife comes in a thick genuine cowhide sheath.
The Vivo – another sought after handmade knife made by Louis Naude.
