    The product

     

    When Hogue entered the market, they were very dominating. And they made the best gun grips that were worth their money. They partnered with acclaim knife designer, Allen elishewitz to get started on the right foot. Manual, automatic, OTF, BOOT knife and more. All such knives offer a blade for any type of a taste. Unique details come in an affordable and functional package.

     

    The CA legal A01 microswitch is one of the best automatic knives in the market as of now. A perfect locking mechanism is found on most of their model to add a layer of utility. 154CM blade steel has got a very nice edge even under abuse. It is however easy to maintain with the sharpening of our choice. Our personal favorite knife is the EX-A01 with the milled aluminum handle scales and it even has the button lock mechanism.

     

    Process

     

    In case you are very much familiar with Hogue knives. It may be hard to believe but every element of this manufacturing process lives in the US. There may be many resources like a contract, export work to many different countries. Hogue is totally committed to investing in the USA. There are a lot of resources but as we know success rarely comes from taking the path which is easy so it is nice for us that they worked on a different path.

     

    Even the brand had it executed all well. They have totally transformed something from a raw stock to a nicely finished product. They maintain a very tight tolerance on every step. Function is born from experience. When you take such knives out in the field, you feel you have some experience in hand.
