Hogue Knives has partnered together with SIG Sauer to deliver a full line of quality SIG Sauer branded knives. These fine tactical and sporting knives represent the ultimate value in tactical folders and fixed blades: the vision of renowned custom knifemaker Allen Elishewitz expressed through Hogue's state-of-the-art manufacturing processes. Made in America by American craftsmen, a Hogue knife at your side is a trusted — and trustworthy — companion, an heirloom quality blade combining the best of old-world craftsmanship and design set in the context of modern-day, real-world applications for a tactical blade.
Hogue Manual folders represent the culmination of their capabilities and experience resulting in a superior balance of fit, finish and function. They have been engineered from the ground up to tackle any cutting tasks you put them to.
All of the materials are sourced in the USA. The 154CM stainless steel blade is cryogenically heat treated to a Rockwell of 57-59 then hand honed to a razor-sharp edge. The handles are offered in a high-quality material that offers exceptional wear resistance and beauty. Each grip is carefully sculpted for outstanding ergonomics, ensuring that your Hogue knife is comfortable and secure in use.
When deployed Hogue folders are held open with a tough, yet smooth operating button lock. Although a capable mechanism on its own, the button lock is backed up with an additional manual safety that locks the knife open for peace of mind during harder use. Beneath the scales, the button lock is mounted into an innovative, recessed stainless steel "bolster plate" to ensure rigidity and long wear. The robust, custom made hardware on all moving parts is oversized and heat treated. Be confident that every aspect of your Hogue folding knife has been refined to offer the best possible longevity and performance.
The EX-01's methodical design pairs an elegant exterior and high-end materials with an overbuilt frame that supports a fierce cutting edge. As Hogue's first folding knife this model has become a guiding principle.
