Hogue EX-04 Extreme Folders

If you’re looking for a blade that you’ll be both proud to show off to your friends and pass down to your children, the Hogue EX-04 series is an excellent choice for your money. They’re Allen Elishewitz designs made to handle the tough tasks and look good doing it. These EX-04 models have a highly ergonomic handle featuring the new blue and red lava G-Mascus G10 scales, which really catch the eye and provide a good, sturdy grip. The 3.5″ or 4″ black finished blades come in either an upswept or wharncliffe style that really excel in cutting with natural curves for maximum effectiveness. The button lock mechanism these knives use is a very high strength design that comes with a manual safety to lock the blade open if necessary. A superior folding EDC option, it’s also available in a tactical black configuration for military operations. Check out these cool new Hogue offerings at www.knifecenter.com.
