Hogue Knives Deka Clip Point Pocket Knife Black G-10 (3.25" Black 20CV)

  • Black drop point blade made from CPM 20CV stainless steel.
  • Double thumb stud opener with a washer pivot.
  • Black G-10 handle scales that are textured for grip.
  • Accessible ABLE-Lock system for safe and easy one-handed operation.
  • Reversible, deep-carry pocket clip set for tip-up carry.


The Hogue Deka is a top-tier EDC knife designed by Allen Elishewitz. It's lightweight, tough, well-made, and easy to use with one hand. It features the ABLE-Lock, which you can access from either side of the knife; couple that with its reversible pocket clip and you're looking at a fully ambidextrous folder. The Deka is a rich pocket knife, like a chocolate cake is rich: there's so much chocolate goodness in so little space—or in this case, cutlery goodness. It has a G-10 handle, minimal steel liners to support the lock, and a CPM 20CV super steel blade. The cherry on top of this proverbial cake is the knife's price point. The Hogue Deka is a knife you can afford to put in your pocket, and one you'll find every occasion to take out and use. It promises to perform well and stand the test of time.

Best in class
Stephen D. on Dec 7, 2020

Lightweight, outstanding materials, quality feeling all at a lower price vs its competitor. What I really enjoy about this knife: the smooth surface texture of the G10 which then bites at specific points feels great. The super thin blade is impressive and a very good slicer. The spring has a very nice tension which feels a little like the smoothness between two magnets repelling each other. Really strange that Benchmade is doing so well when this product is a league higher at a lower price. Hogue Deka is to the Bugout what the Doug Ritter Mini-RSK is to the Mini Griptilian. Keep up the amazing work Hogue!!!

A better bugout
Austin C. on Sep 23, 2020

Man, this knife put my bugout to shame. The bugout is great, but this is levels better. The action on this is just straight up buttery smooth, the ABLE Lock is so smooth and easy to manipulate, where my axis locks have known to get crunchier over time, even with oil. CPM-20CV is the American M390, essentially, and this came razer sharp, with a great coating. The pocket clip isn't deep carry but it's close enough for my liking, you have about a half inch showing, at most. My one gripe is the G10 is a little smooth for my liking but I often carry Spydercos so that's probably an unfair parallel. All in all, I love this knife and it is my new EDC, along with my Benchmade Nakamura.

Are you kidding me?
Renae B. on Jan 13, 2020

The Deka is a knfe you don't need to make excuses for. You don't need to convince yourself cheap plastic feels nice, that lock stick and off centered blade and a stiff action are okay. You don't need to justify buying after market scales that cost %75 of the knives price. This against the bugout? You're joking right? There's no competition, the Deka is better in every way that actually matters, despite excuses on youtube running thick, "it's got a lot of screws..." or "Um just buy both". C'mon now, what nonsense. I own both and this blows it's competitor outta the water, the deka is what the bugout should've been and people spend twice the price trying to make.

Big Stick, Lightweight
Cody B. on Dec 3, 2019

Teddy would love this knife: It speaks softly, as the G-10 handle keeps the weight low. You'll barely know it's in your pocket. But it's definitely a big stick! The blade slices through everything with ease, and came right out of the box ready to go. Feels great in the hand, and I love the new pocket clip design. This knife is destined to become a legend.

4.5 stars

Both here and on the Web, many people are comparing this to the Benchmade Bugout. I usually think that any product needs to stand on it own, but in this case, it's a fair comparison. The Deka has G-10 scales, while the Bugout uses a lighter weight material. Mine is the CF-Elite. The G-10 is stiffer and adds weight. The Bugout definitely feels lighter in the hand, but the scales have some flex. The Deka has a CPM-20CV blade. The Bugout is CPM-S30V, which should be better steel. Both black blades have a nice flat finish. Both seem to be very sharp. I accidentally nicked myself with both knives. Both knives are nearly equivalent in total length, blade length and handle length. The difference in cost was less than $5 (in 2020). The Bugout uses the AXIS lock, while the Deka uses the ABLE-Lock. They are pretty much the same thing. The AXIS locks moves laterally, while the ABLE-Lock moves in a small arc. Both require breaking in, although the Bugout needed significantly more work to allow for smooth opening and closing. I'm beginning to dislike the AXIS lock even if it's called the ABLE-Lock. Blade deployment is much smoother and easier on the Deka. The Deka's greater weight and slightly fatter scales makes it easier to open the knife. Until I broke in the Bugout, closing the knife was accompanied by this ugly gritty "crunch." Not so with the Deka. I think the Deka's pocket clip is far superior to the Bugout's short clip. The Bugout is a good knife but needed a lot of "breaking in" - far too much - to get to that point. The Deka is better out of the box, except for that ABLE-Lock.
