Hogue EX-04 3.5" Wharncliffe Blade, 154CM Black Blade, G-Mascus Black and Gray
The Hogue EX-04 is the next generation in the Extreme Series. These uniquely designed knives are aesthetically appealing and reliably functional.
Designed by Allen Elishewitz with cues from his Jekyll and Hyde custom knives, the EX-04 comes in two different blade styles. This one is the 3.5-inch modified Wharncliffe version. The blade profile is simultaneously angular and curvaceous, giving the user a deep belly for slicing and a hook-like point.
The blade is made from cryogenically treated 154CM steel, which is corrosion-resistant and retains a good edge despite regular use. A fuller-like section in the middle of the blade helps cut down on the weight of the knife and creates a masterful double hollow grind.
Following in the footsteps of the EX-01 and EX-03, the EX-04 features a button plunge lock. The mechanism not only pulls double duty as a ball detent but it also withstands abuse without conceding strength or durability. A manual safety prevents any accidental closures.
Much of the personality of the knife reveals itself in the contoured handle that can be held in a variety of positions. This version features black and gray layered G10 in lava. Referred to as G-Mascus, the handles come in different colors, including red and black, blue and black, and solid black.
A tip-down spoon-styled pocket clip keeps the knife securely in your pocket. Considering this is the kind of knife you'd want to show off to your friends or whip out when you need to do a mundane task, you'll be carrying the EX-04 everywhere.
