Hogue has announced a partnership with Heckler & Koch on a new family of knives dubbed HK Knives. The first three models in this series made their official debut at SHOT Show 2018. Here’s a breakdown on each, via the official press release.

The HK Exemplar is a 3.25” pivot lock folder. Machined black or flat dark earth G10 handles are shaped and textured with a similar pattern to HK’s popular handgun grips for superior grip and grab. Premium grade steel is profiled and ground providing all the edge you need. The Exemplar features tandem dual thumb studs with a Pivot Lock which offer fast, single handed deploy and retract functionality. MSRP ranges from $149.95 for the tumbled option to $169.96 for black finishes.

The HK Hadron houses a 3.375” switch operated blade which instantly deploys and retracts out-the-front for total control. Its compact and versatile design allows easy storage and quick response when needed. Choices include a clip point or tanto blade with serration and heavy-duty machined aluminum handles in black or flat dark earth. The MSRP ranges from $289.95 to $299.95.

The HK Karma sports a 3.75” tanto or spear point blade and utilizes HK textured black or safety orange G10 handles. Designed for response effectiveness, the Karma provides the ability to slice, cut, break, and wrench with increased confidence. The knife is strategically shaped and sized for the gloved or bare hand and carries or packs with ease. The featured strap cutter on the spine rotates open to safely cut through fibrous materials with ease minimizing the chance of injury. At the rear a carbide glass breaker and oxygen wrench make this the right tool for everyone. The MSRP is $189.95.
