Linked by the same mythological monster, Hydra Knives and Hydra Design have teamed up to create the HECATE II, the evolution of Hydra Design’s project born in 2015.
Named for the Greek goddess of magic, witchcraft, the night, moon, ghosts and necromancy, this sturdy tactical fixed blade knife is characterized by an aggressive, but at the same time efficient, harpoon style blade.
The full-tang knife is made in Niolox steel and is available both in black and desert tan coating.
Like most of the tactical knives designed by Alessandra De Santis (aka Hydra Design), the HECATE II is distinguished by a guard with two triangular holes which, together with the hole at the end of the handle, refers the three-headed Hydra of her logo.

“If you can recognize a knife only by its silhouette, it means that the designer has done a great job!”
“I have chosen every knife I own, the Hecate chose me...Once I got it in my hands I knew it was mine forever...My Hecate from @hydra_knifedesign is definitely at the top of my list! ”
“The blade is really slicey, but imagine cutting for one hour without feeling any hot spots! The handle is an ergonomic materpiece designed by Alessandra De Santis.”
