The original purpose behind the Silent Hero knife was to provide a mid-large sized tool to be used by a specialized interdiction unit that was combating rhino poachers in Africa. It is an excellent design and has served many people on multiple continents. Over time, Anton (the designer) realized that he didn’t 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 was perfect for a variety of tasks. By shrinking them down, you end up with a knife that is much more easily carried as an EDC, but still long enough to handle the vast majority of cutting tasks. While the look of this smaller version is basically there same, there are a few differences. The blade is a bit thinner (1/8” instead of 3/16”). The finish is a Sniper Gray Cerakote (instead of Black River Wash). And it comes with a Kydex sheath instead of leather. So, whether you’re looking for a companion blade for your Silent Hero, or just prefer a blade length around 4″ instead of 6″, the Silent Hero 4 will be an excellent addition to your collection
