One of the best tactical automatic knives of the best decade is finally getting a supersized version in the HK Ballista XL.

Hogue teamed up with HK to bring a different iteration of the Hogue Ballista I.

Unlike the Ballista I, the Ballista XL forgoes the button actuator for the ABLE Lock, which stands for Ambidextrous Bar Lock Enhanced. This means this folder is truly ambidextrous when you combine in the reversible tip-up deep carry pocket clip.

The S30V drop point blade stretches 3.5 inches while the overall length is 8.75 inches.

Its red and black handle uses ChromaCut G-10 with peel ply texture.
