I Have not seen these before Wazu.

Where are these made ,and was it expensive if you don't mind me asking.

I really like the looks of it ...a bit lightningesque but that's a good thing and I really like the clippoint blade.The handle material looks great too.

Looks like a great all round otf.
Please let et us all know what its like when you get it and thanks for sharing it.

Hope your well

They list for $297 at BladeHQ and places like that. I got mine on Gunbroker for $255. They're designed by Allen Elishewitz and made in America by Hogue. The blade steel is CPM154. Here's a link to their website. They sell their own line of pistol grips and holsters plus other accessories.

It's like a Lightning OTF on steroids. For a few bucks more you can get them with G10 handles.

FedEx just dropped the knife off. I have to say it's a beauty. It's definitely a quality USA made product. The blade is a hair shaver. If you look close you can see it's sharpened to a mirror finish. I can't say there's no blade play but I can say it's the tightest lock up I've ever seen in a OTF. No side to side movement and just a fractional bit of up and down play. The anodized handle has a real grippy feel besides being well done. The pocket clip is nice and tight. It's not just screwed to the body. They milled a cutout so the clip mount can inset, nice touch.

Thanks for the write up wazu013

It's nice to see the US with some great Otf manufacturers Microtech ,Benchmade,paladin,DW to name a few and now Hogue a new one to me .Creates a competition of excellence and new design.

It looks a really nice sturdy user otf with a cool scale design and nice blade shape .
Add that CPM154 steel and you have a classic in the making .

Congratulations on it nd now I would like one too.

btw love that carry pouch aswell.

Great knife

Ian
