Description

This EX-A05 model is outfitted with a 3.5" spear point blade in a black Cerakote finish. It has a black aluminum handle with black G-Mascus inlays.

The distinctive X-A05 automatic from Hogue offers snappy automatic opening action with the push of a button. Utilizing Hogue's state of the art auto technology, the blade rockets into open position and locks firmly in place. A sliding safety adds an extra level of blade security when in the open position. This Allen Elishewitz design includes an ergonomic pocket clip, that is reversible for left or right-hand carry.

Features
  • Highly responsive firing button offers smooth one-handed opening action.
  • Blade has been hand sharpened and honed for an extremely sharp and durable cutting edge.
  • 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum handle has a hard anodized black finish with a G-Mascus insert for a secure and comfortable grip.

I was skeptical on buying this after hearing mixed reviews on the manual version, the x5 specifically on the handle and ergonomics but for me, it end up feeling perfect. Having med size hands, this knife melts in my hand. For lg-xl hands, i can see people having some trouble getting all their pinky on but for me and smaller hands, i think it is perfect. Another small issue is the button sticks if you press it lightly but not really a big deal for me. Other than that, i absolutely love this knife. Strong action, top quality, usa made and just a beautiful knife overall
Nice, but not worth the price

It's a decent knife but not over $200 nice. I bought this after getting my girlfriend an AO1 which that is an amazing knife. This thing is big but very narrow. Just overall a slightly weird shape and not the most comfortable to hold. It honestly feels very cheap for a USA made knife.
Good edge retention

Good edge retention, This is a large knife feels good in the hands nice snap when it opens very useful for a daily knife have carried it for a month or so and have had no problems.
If you want a dependable Blade you won’t go wrong with this one

I liked the 05 hogue I bought three. I also have a couple Hogue 01s. I really like the Hogue line very good knives. I would like to see different steels, 154 cm is not my most favorite steel. I have the 3.5 and 4 inch hogue 05. I picked up the Sig version but its too pretty to use.It went right into my collection.Hogue makes some great knives!
