Description
HO34449: Hogue EX04 4" Wharncliffe Blade with Gray Lava G-Mascus Handles
Hogue Knives
 
Introduced in 2012, the EX-04 is the next step in our Extreme Series. Just like the EX-01 and EX-03, it features our button plunge lock with manual safety and integrated stainless steel bolster plates. In addition to these features the EX-04 is designed with an ergonomic 3 dimensional G-Mascus G10 frame in two new colors. The design of the handle makes it very comfortable in both saber and ice-pick grip.

The blade designs are quite unique with performance in mind. Both the conventional upswept and modified Wharncliffe blades have dual grinds producing a unique keen edge for ease of cutting. Our wharncliffe design has the added feature of a belly which provides a broader range of use.

Fantastic Knife
Just received the EX04 today and would have to say that it is the most beautiful knife I have ever seen. The look of the handle and the ergonomics are fantastic. The blade shape is highly useable and it arrived wicked sharp. I personally think that the 154CM steel is probably one of the best overall steels for a folder. The locking mechanism is silky smooth, and allows you to extend the blade with just a quick wrist flip as quickly as an automatic. Zero blade play. The EX04 with 4 inch blade feels very balanced and light in hand. I purchased this as a tactical/self defense knife. There are YouTube videos that demonstrate how effective the Modified Wharncliffe blade, as designed by AE, is in that role. After seeing how nice this knife is, I plan on buying the other blade shape in 3.5 inches as an EDC, though the Modified Wharncliffe design would work just as well. Seriously, I cannot think of a single negative. If your main goal is collecting, blade, handle, locking mechanism, designer, and price all make this a very good buy.
