New Knife From SIG Sauer and Hogue

SIGKnife1

Most of you probably own knives along with your guns, and many most likely own quite an assortment of knives, not just one or two. If you don’t, well, maybe it’s past time you did. Either way, this new knife may interest you. It’s being made by Hogue according to SIG Sauer’s requests, and it’s called the SIG Sauer EX-02.

The SIG Sauer EX-02 is a folding knife, but not just any folding knife. It was designed to be specifically paired with SIG Sauer’s 1911 Emperor Scorpion, although of course it will appeal to anyone looking for a well-made knife. It has a spear-point blade that measures 3.75″ long and is made from 154 CM steel. The blade has a flat dark earth-colored coating that helps it resist corrosion and dings and can be opened one-handed thanks to a flipper tab. The handle is all black and features Hogue’s popular piranha-grip scales as well as the SIG logo.

SIG Sauer Executive Director, GMM, Jeff Creamer, had this to say about the new knife: “Hogue’s quality materials and manufacturing, coupled with the innovative, purpose-driven designs of renowned bladesmith Allen Elishewitz, are a natural match for SIG SAUER.”

Well-made knives are always nice to have handy and I admit to owning more than just a few myself. After all, not only do you want to have knives handy at home, in your truck, and in your pack, you also need the right knife in your pocket or boot at all times. Finding the right knife for personal carry can be a bit of a challenge, and I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly game to keep looking for the perfect knife for daily carry.

The new SIG Sauer EX-02 is listed as having an MSRP of $205.00 and can be viewed and ordered online at  http://store.sigsauer.com/catalog/product/view/id/7854/s/sig-sauer-ex02-folding-knife-by-Hogue/.

    I can think of very few reasons why a knife with a 154CM blade should ever cost $200. For that kind of money you could have two Made in the USA Benchmades with 154CM blades. Even my over developed love of Sigs won’t let me spend that much.

    • Sianmink

      For that kind of money you can have 240P, VG10 or S30V, all of which are better than 154CM.

      Though an MSRP of $205 on any knife means a street price around $130.

    • Bal256

      Because sig, that’s why.

  • Will

    Remove the Hogue and Sig Sauer names and Sig logo and the knife would sell for, what, $60.00?
    I’ll keep my Kershaw Brawler thank you very much.

    • Grindstone50k

      This. 154CM is NOT worth $200.

      • DW

        Unless it’s a large fixed blade

        • Grindstone50k

          I can get an Elmax fixed blade for cheaper.

          • DW

            A really large one, then? With overall length >12″

          • Grindstone50k

            You’re talking about a machete. Which spending $200 on is still dumb.

  • Phil Hsueh

    Ok, a knife from two companies not known for making knives at a premium price; what’s not love? So, who’s the actual maker of this knife, I don’t believe that Hogue and Sig did much more than what S&W & others do which is to essentially pick a knife out of a catalog, do a little customization to it and then slap their names on it and call it a day. I could be wrong, the MSRP would suggest a quality knife and not something from some Chinese company’s catalog but as I said earlier, neither Sig nor Hogue are exactly known for making knives, much less good ones.

    • Grindstone50k

      More like they licensed their trademarks to some Chinese knife maker (which explains the steel used) rather than them making it themselves.

      • Phil Hsueh

        Either it’s still overpriced. I could (potentially) justify spending $200+ on a knife if it’s from a reputable knife company and/or from a custom job, but not one from two companies not known for making knives who are probably either essentially picking it out of a catalog or having some equally unknown company make it for them so they can slap their names on it.

  • Edeco

    Yeah, I’m not feeling it. Maybe it’s part of the Legion Lifestyle they’re offering to discerning warriors.

  • john huscio

    Looks better built than the dime store knives HK stamps their name on……

  • That guy

    154CM? Uh no thanks on the cheap carbon steel which rusts faster than practically every other popular blade steel on the planet.

    • DW

      Uhh, re-google 154cm please. It isn’t “Cheap” “Carbon steel”
      It isn’t the best available now but it sure aint 5Cr13mov or 1095
