HENDERSON, NV -(Ammoland.com)- Hogue Knives is pleased to announce the expansion of their automatic knife line to include Out the Front models.
“We’ve created an OTF automatic for people who like to use and abuse their knives,” said Hogue managing partner and master toolmaker Jim Bruhns. “The result is a lightning fast spring action knife that is a reliable work horse each and every time you need it.”
Hogue’s Out the Front automatic knives are designed to combine exceptionally effortless opening action with suburb ergonomics for reliable and repeatable one-handed operation A smooth slide of the trigger fires the blade with impressive force.
The spring assisted deployment holds fast after firing for even the most demanding chores.
Blade profiles for the OTF include Tanto or Clip Point varieties with either a stone wash tumbled or black PVD finish. Made from .125” thick CPM154 steel, the blade offers superior corrosion resistance while providing excellent edge retention.
The blade is cryogenically heat treated to 57-59 RC and hand sharpened and honed. The Type III hard coat anodize 6061-T6 aluminum
frame is sculpted for an ergonomic grasp and comfortable one-handed deployment.
The frame is patterned with a hexagonal tread pattern for additional grip traction. The body includes a thumb recess at the frame opening for better gripability while deployed.
Models are available in matte black, matte grey or desert sand with black hardware. The frame is finished with a deep carry tip down pocket clip.
Every OTF is individually tested and laser etched with a unique serial number before it bears the Hogue name. The MSRP of the tumbled finish OTF models is $349.95 while the PVD coated models are $369.95.
