Hogue Knives' EX01 Tactical Folder from their Extreme Series is now available as an automatic opening knife. The action is smooth and lockup tight via the button lock mechanism. There is also a front mounted safety to lock the blade. 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 point style 154-CM tactical black finished blade has a razor sharp plain edge. For easy carry there is a large reversible pocket clip for tip-down or up carry.
Hogue, well known for the gun grips, has ventured into the knife world with the introduction of the Extreme Series, designed by Allen Elishewitz. The knives look good, they are comfortable and the function and action is beyond reproach.

This EX-A01 was my first Houge, but I can assure you, it won't be my last. The build quality is absolutely top-shelf. Super sharp, fires hard and fast, and is mechanically very solid. I wasn't sure about the "G-mascus" handle as I'm a real fan of aluminum builds, but it's light and has a great feel. It's every bit as good as any of my Benchmade, Spyderco or Protech knives. Highly recommended as it's currently my EDC.
This knife has become my favorite. The good looks, feel, lockup, and smooth release are second to none. I have been a Benchmade guy for years, but it looks like Hogue has become my new favorite brand. The quality of the materials and the craftsmanship are as good as any knife I own or have tried. Try one, you won't go back.
