If there’s one category a company new to the hunting industry might want to avoid, it would probably be knives.

Many brands are formidable competitors, and hunters are sometimes so devoted to a particular brand that they’ll try no other. Could a newcomer choose a tougher category to compete in? Yet that’s the category Havalon has built its brand in, and it has expanded a small niche in the hunting knife field to a category it virtually owns—the replaceable blade hunting knife.
