The following is a press release from Hogue Inc

Only weeks after announcing their line of automatic folding knives, Hogue Incorporated has added five more models to the auto lineup. “We’ve added five tumble finished blades in three different styles, and two new handle designs in aluminum and G10 to our selection of automatic folding knives,” explained Neil Hogue. “We’re driven to offer more options based on customer feedback as we start shipping to our dealer network.”

The five new Hogue auto knife models include tumble finished drop point, modified Wharncliffe and upswept blades deployed in four different frames, including a new aluminum version of the ergonomic EX-A04. Featuring fine-grooved, precisely-machined scales in expertly-applied anodizing, the matte black aluminum EX-A04 is a slimmer version of its G10 counterpart. Choose either modified Wharncliffe or upswept, dual hollow ground blade designs at an MSRP of $229.95.

Hogue’s EX-A01 model, meanwhile, gets a new, distinctive, grid-like “Tread” pattern G10 frame equipped with a drop point blade and is priced at $249.95 MSRP. In addition, the EX-A01 aluminum frame auto knife is now offered with a tumble finished drop point blade for $229.95 MSRP. Finally, Hogue’s popular one-piece, high-density polymer frame EX-A03 now includes an option for a tumble finished drop point blade and is priced at $189.95 MSRP.

All Hogue automatic folding knives feature a robust button lock and a 3.5 inch, 154 CM hardened steel blade. Blade deployment and loading in the auto knife line is courtesy of a custom-made, proprietary music wire spring designed by famed spring maker Wolff Gunsprings. “Fast blade deployment, a rock-solid lockup, precision engineering and extreme reliability under all conditions are hallmarks of the Hogue auto knife,” said Hogue co-owner Jim Bruhns.
