The original purpose of the Silent Hero knife was to provide a medium-sized tool for use by an interdiction unit specializing in fighting rhino poachers in Africa. It is an excellent design that has served many people on different continents. Over time, Anton (the designer) realized that he did not always need such a large knife strapped to his hip.
This is where the Silent Hero 4 was born. The handle and blade shape of the full-sized knife were perfect for a variety of tasks. By reducing them, you get a knife that is much easier to carry as an EDC, but still long enough to handle most cutting tasks. The appearance of this smaller version is basically the same, but there are some differences. The blade is a bit thinner, the finish is Sniper Gray Cerakote (instead of Black River Wash) and it comes with a Kydex sheath instead of leather. So if you are looking for a blade to match your Silent Hero or simply prefer a blade length of about 4" instead of 6", the new Silent Hero 4 will be an excellent addition to your collection!
