There has been a lot of buzz over Hogue Inc.’s folding blades, and rightfully so, but the company recently announced a fixed blade that will be joining its knife lineup.
The EX-F02 fixed blade knife features a polymer/OverMolded rubber hybrid handle with a blade fashioned from A2 tool steel.

The hybrid handle’s rubber surface offers unmatched “gripability” while performing strenuous cutting activities. A finger detent and a gentle recess on the tail end result in better leverage in a reverse grip situation.
The EX-F02 is offered in both clip point and tanto style blades manufactured from quality A2 steel that has been heat treated to RC 57-59, cryogenically treated and finally hand sharpened and honed to a keen edge.
With its large stick tang construction, broad top edge and serrated thumb ramp, the EX-F02 will stand up to the most demanding of challenges.
A knife of such dynamic executed design requires a complementing sheath equal to the task. Hogue’s solution was to uniquely design a precisely fitted ambidextrous auto-retention aerospace polymer sheath to constrain this beast of a knife.
With its automatic retention ability to steadfastly lock the knife and its MOLLE compatible mounting capabilities, the sheath is ready when you are.
