HO34472: Hogue EX04 3.5" Upswept Blade with Red 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.

Cons: Pocket Clip, None
Cool, i guess
It has a very weird double grind, which is hard to see in the photos, i think it is some strange way to save money Sadly it is only a one position clip, which is screwed onto a weird hump in the G-10 which would probably feel weird if i removed it. The clip began to wiggle up and down quite a bit after about a day, it must have oversized screw holes, i tightened it and it seems to hold The handle is a bit too small at the rear, even for my tiny hands, it feels like i could slip off, since the g10 is rather smooth It has one of the very best locking mechanisms there is on the market, very easy to use, perhaps even more so than the axis lock. The lock can be locked in the unfolded locked position with the secondary lock which slides back and forth to lock. Internal reinforcements with steel looks very sturdy Because of the nonsensical extremely abrasive black coating on the blade it is kind of difficult to cut even though i know there is a good edge Not very good thumbstuds, they feel very sharp, though they work fine Surprisingly light handle, i think it would be better to have a backspacer, as it is it is merely screwed together into the other handle, not sure how solid that is, certainly looks nice though
