First Look: Hogue Extrak

First Look: Hogue Extrak

Hogue’s Newest Fixed Blade Is Visually Spectacular And Ridiculously Light. Part Of The Company’s New Line Of Hunters, The Extrak Does Far More Than Asked Of It.

Every hunter knows that a good knife is worth its weight in gold. Hogue’s newest line of hunting field knives includes the Extrak. This fixed-blade wonder is amazing for what it can do at just 1.9 total ounces. The fixed blade is made from CPM M4 Tool Steel and has a vibrant Hunter Orange Cerakote finish. The clip point has a flat grind on its cutting edge and is hardened to a 62-64 HRC.

To learn more about this new line from Hogue, take a look at the video below.

The G10 handle scales provide excellent grip but are also removable to make the knife even lighter. The included nylon blade guard does its job admirably in keeping the blade secure in transport. 

Overall this knife really is remarkable. The combination of hardness and weight alone makes it excellent for skinning hides and processing kills. It’s so light, so strong, and so versatile that it is absolutely worth the price and would make life easier for hunters of all types and skill levels.

MSRP: $189.95
