HO34479: Hogue EX04 3.5" Upswept 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.

One of the best knives ever
Just a well designed and executed knife. I have a 4" Modified Wharncliffe and also this 3.5" Upswept. Both are excellent knives and blade designs, but the 3.5" seems to be a much better EDC choice. I like both blade designs equally. I am glad that I got the Wharncliffe in 4". If I was pressed to have only one of the EX04 knives, I would pick 3.5", but not sure which blade. The locking mechanism is smooth, solid, with zero blade play. The blade is 154CM, wicked sharp, and at .15" thick, sturdy. The G-Mascus in gray is as comfortable and functional as it is beautiful. The only negative, and it is minor and has been reported before, is that the tip of the "wedding cake" thumb stud is a little sharp. It mirrors the rest of the hardware when viewed straight on, but needs to be redesigned. It is acceptable when you follow the contour in the handle when opening, but if you come at it from any other angle it is sharp. I would highly recommend this knife. Definitely superior to any Benchmade I own.
