The updated, collector's series Hogue Deka is a stellar everyday-carry knife designed by Allen Elishewitz. The handle is made from handsome carbon fiber that conceals much of the knife's hardware, making for a cleaner aesthetic. Second—and most notably—the blade is made from CPM 20CV steel and is hand sharpened. This steel type has incredible edge retention, toughness, and stain-resistance. The rest of the knife has an excellent handle geometry, an eye-catching design, and Hogue's dependable quality. 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.
