The Extreme Series EX-02 from Hogue Knives is a sturdy Elishewitz design that is comfortable, sturdy and made to last. The blade on the EX-02 is cryogenically treated 154-CM steel that is hand sharpened and honed. The handle is built with a thick liner lock frame and sports a recessed lanyard attachment between the back spacer and skull crusher/glass breaker pommel. The handle also has a manual safety slide to prevent lock failure under extreme conditions. Looks matter, so the EX-02 is dressed up with G-Mascus scales and a stylish tip-up/down carry pocket clip.
There are four factors to consider in your EX-02 knife, they are: blade length (3.75" or 3.375"), blade style (Spear Point or Tanto), opening style (Flipper or Thumb Stud), and G-Mascus color (Black or Green).
This EX-02 has a 3.75" spear point blade with flipper and green G-Mascus G-10 scales.
Warranty: Limited lifetime warranty to the original owner against defects in materials and workmanship.
Action will not flip open without significant wrist flick assistance, blade just sticks and is not smooth and effortless. Flipper tab is harsh and aggressive to activate and hot spots quickly while fidgeting. Handle scales are sharp and hot spots everywhere including the fancy pocket clip. The lanyard divot and bar are impossible to work with. The lock bar has serious lock stick. Hogue's warranty is voided if I take it apart to clean it. The design and the blade steel are about all this has going for it This knife is not worth more than $150.
