G-10 Frame 3.5" Tanto Blade Tumble Finish - G-Mascus Black, Made in the USA
Hogue, well known for the gun grips, has ventured into the knife world. Their 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 tanto 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.
