Whether you think of it as Halligan’s Ultimate Gadget or High Utility Gear, never turn down a little H.U.G.

Ed’s latest two-piece design Halligan’s Ultimate Gadget (H.U.G.) because it is virtually as small, simple and lightweight as the K.I.S.S., but so much more sophisticated and versatile.
Like the K.I.S.S., the H.U.G. is a Frame Lock folder with a single-sided blade. However, Ed has refined almost every aspect.

The 2.30” blade is now a modified spear point with a single-side grind which seals against the frame. It is more useful for the type of pen knife tasks most users will give the knife.
The frame, also bead-blast high-carbon stainless steel, now uses an ingenious internal Frame Lock. A single Zytel scale makes the handle fit the hand better, and also helps prevent the blade from accidental opening. A finger choil on the bottom of the frame and friction grooves at the thumb area make for a more secure grip, and give more comfort during extended use.

A compact custom stainless steel pocket/money clip makes this a handy and useful personal carry in all situations.
