The Hogue Extreme EX-04 series folder is an Allen Elishewitz design that is reminiscent of his custom Hyde knife. The blade features two hollow ground bevels, which add plenty of visual interest while maintaining utility. The blade comes out with precision and stays securely in place with the plunge-lock and manual safety. The handle is perfectly contoured for the ultimate grip and comes with a tip-down carry pocket clip.

This EX-04 model has a 3.5" Upswept style blade and Black/Gray Lava G-Mascus G10 handle.

Nathan D.
The ergonomics on this knife are very good. Handle fits well in the hand. The clip is very good, shape and function-wise, but keep in mind its right side tip down only. The action is very good for a manual open knife. Very easy to swing open and shut by holding the button lock with your thumb.

My only issue with the knife was the edge. It looked nice and polished, but it just wasn't sharp out of the box. I couldn't even open an envelope. At least 154CM is easy enough to sharpen. After some time on my sharp maker it's much better now.

Overall, I really like the knife, but be ready to touch up the edge when you get it.
