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.

Update: while it took longer, this, like my bugout, had the omega spring break. I mentioned in my review here on the bugout that I found a aftermarket spring that’s claimed to be beefier and it is on order. When it comes in I’ll provide an update. I am disappointed with cross bars from a dependability standpoint, but still think hogues version is better done. Yes, I have the bugout and the deka, and I can say that this is honestly the better knife. I love the gmascus scales, the added grip that Hogue has built in is nice, and not at all overdone. The action on the ABLE lock is suprior, out the box it is already smoother. The blade is super slicey, an amazing edge and CPM-20CV, all made in USA. The only complaint is that they went a little crazy with the bolts and hardware, this thing is overbuilt. lol I love this knife.
