Hogue Inc. has added a 4-inch blade version to its X5 folding knife line.
Like the 3.5-inch version, the X5 4-inch folder features a wicked spear point blade with Hogue’s Flipper feature for quick deployment.
“Built with Hogue’s new, revolutionary deployment technology, this knife provides class leading smoothness and an exceptionally effortless action,” Hogue officials maintain. “Although completely manual and containing no springs, the innovative internal system allows the blade to open with a motion as instinctive as your own reflexes.”
The X5 line features CMP 154 stainless steel blades, a push-button manual safety and handles made from 6061-T6 anodized aluminum.
The ergonomic handle also has Black G10 inserts for improved grip. There’s also a stainless steel ambidextrous Deep Pocket Carry clip.
The blade is finished with a black Cerakote finish. The entire package weighs in at 5.1 ounces.
The X5 4-inch folder retails for $260, but you can find them on the web about $220.
