This X1 Microflip model showcases an aquamarine anodized aluminum handle and a stonewashed wharncliffe blade.
The Hogue X1 Microflip combines a comfortable EDC design with a tough, durable build. It offers a high performance flipper for rapid blade deployment with a sturdy plunge lock for easy one-hand operation. A stainless steel pocket clip and stylized backspacer finish off the outstanding design.
Very high quality build EDC, still as sharp as the day I got it. Hogue nailed it on this one!
Updated review: This knife is great in all the ways that I said, however the the jimping on the handle spine was tearing up my pointer finger so bad when I flipped it open (because your finger would naturally come down the back of the handle), I had to return it. I contacted Hogue directly and asked them to please fix this in the future. Also, the anodizing on the handles wasn't properly finished and it kept rubbing off without any usage. It also came with a strange smudge on the back of the handle so I wound up returning it. Original review: Hogue makes some exceptional knives, and this is no exception. Don't believe me? Purchase one and you'll see. This knife is like a Corvette or GT-R in that, it is highly underrated compared to the quarter of a million dollar and million dollar competition. I can't rave enough about this knife. The blade shape, sharpness, lock up, handle color, feel in the palm of your hand, smooth action, and glass breaker are all excellent. The only thing I would improve upon is to make the jimping sharper.
