Hogue EX-01 Button Lock Folding Knife Drop Point 154CM Blade G-Mascus Handle
Hogue, well known for the gun grips, has ventured into the knife world. Hogue Knives first offering, the EX01 Tactical Folding Knife from their Extreme™ Series, is a rock solid entry.
Although the Extreme series features a button lock mechanism, this is a manual knife. The Extreme series is designed by Allen Elishewitz. The knives look good, they are comfortable and the function & action is beyond reproach.
The black G-10 handle features a pattern the creators call "G-mascus" (G-10 & Damascus). The front of the handle has piranha texture for a better grip. The drop point style 154-CM stone-wash finished blade (plain) is razor sharp. The blade comes out with a refined smoothness and locks securley into place via the button lock mechanism. There is also a front mounted safety to lock the blade open even more securely. For easy carry there is also reversible pocket clip.
