Hogue Knives Announces Four-Inch Automatics
Henderson, NV – Hogue Knives is pleased to announce the addition of four inch automatic knives to their popular line of American-made folding knives. The new autos are spring-loaded four inch versions of Hogue's popular EX-01 and EX-04 tactical folding knives. "We've worked hard to create an incredibly reliable automatic knife based on our button lock knife platform," said Hogue managing partner Jim Bruhns. "Adding four inch blades to our automatic line will satisfy demand from those wanting the same reliable cutting tool but in a larger variety."

The key to the Hogue auto knife's reliability and performance, explained Bruhns, has been its proprietary music wire spring, developed specifically for Hogue Knives by famed spring maker Wolff Gunsprings. "We're delivering an automatic knife that will last for years," said Bruhns. "It will fire with the same authority on the first or the 10,000th deployment." Fast blade deployment, a rock-solid lockup, precision engineering and extreme reliability under all conditions are hallmarks of the Hogue auto knife.

The Hogue Knives EX-A01 auto knife is available with aluminum scales in matte black at an MSRP of $249.95 - $269.95. G-10 scaled versions come in your choice of G-Mascus® Black or G-Mascus Green for $289.95 MSRP. Blade choices include Tanto or Drop Point with black Cerakote™ or tumbled finishes.

The Hogue EX-A04 sports an ergonomic 3D-contoured aluminum or G-10 handle. Aluminum is available in matte black while G10 arrives in solid black. The blade comes in your choice of a modified Wharncliffe or Upswept-style blade with black Cerakote or tumbled finished options at an MSRP of $249.95 - $289.95.
