HO35338: EX-F03 Clip Point Karambit

Hogue Knives

Hogue’s first foray into fixed blades was with some pretty big choppers. They have jumped to the other end of the size range to create a couple karambits. Here at KnifeCenter, we have seen hundreds of karambits over the years and these reasonably priced Elishewitz designs are among the most comfortable to actually use!

The third release in the Hogue Elishewitz Fixed Blade Series, the EX-F03 Karambit is built as strong and sturdy as its predecessors. This extreme knife is designed to be worn around the neck or on your belt using the supplied sheaths, making it easily accessible during your on-the-go activities. It is perfect for hunting, fishing, hiking, or as a utility knife while working at home.

The EX-F03 is available in both a hawkbill and clip point variation depending on your personal preference. The clip point model is great for the hunting, skinning, and whittling tasks while the hawkbill makes quick work ripping through utility chores. Both models come complete with an exceptionally light sheath constructed from kydex and form-fitted to the contours of the knife blade.

Hogue comes through
PROS- 154CM steel- Belt clip works flawlessly in grabbing and releasing the knife- G-mascus scales feel high quality- Hogue doesn't disappoint- KnifeCenter shipped very quicklyCONS- Might be too small for some hands- Karambit style isn't for everyoneREVIEWThis is my first karambit but not my first Hogue. If you buy a Hogue, you expect a certain level of quality, and Hogue doesn't disappoint with this little fixed-blade offering.The EX-F03 is a small knife, which not everyone likes. I don't like things around my neck, so I probably won't use the neck sheath. I like the belt sheath, although if you wear it on your side, you have to figure out a rotation angle that works for you.If you work in an office, you might want to rotate it downward so that the handle goes into your pocket o make it less obvious that you have a knife on your belt.Workmanship on this knife is very high. The scales have excellent texture, and the knife itself is nicely finished. The blade is made of premium 154CM steel and arrived with a very sharp edge.I found that with my little finger through the hoop, it felt best if I pushed the knife deep into my hand.so that the front edge of the handle is pressed against where my fingers extend from my hand. Otherwise, the hoop felt uncomfortable.The deep jimping, which has been polished, is correctly placed. Your thumb falls naturally onto it.No buyer's remorse from me.The weight is about right.
