Hogue Knives has partnered together with SIG SAUER® to deliver a full line of quality SIG® branded knives. A highlight knife from the partnership is the K320. It’s designed to pair with the SIG SAUER P320 as a full duty, tactical knife. The P320 stands as a leader in SIG’s premier pistol line, and the K320 duly embodies the same precision manufacturing standards, prevailing as the pistol’s trustworthy companion.

The knife boasts a robust blade of CPM S30V premium steel, chosen for its excellent edge retention and leading corrosion resistant properties. Each blade is finished from the same exact vendor as SIG SAUER firearms in Black or Coyote PVD. The blade provides a high grind profile and keen edge.

A Nylon 12 polymer frame matches the same composition and color concentrations as the P320 pistol. The blade gently falls into the frame with precision clearance and minimal leak points for debris. The K320’s frame isn’t cored out, resulting in increased overall strength as well as a uniform balance between the blade and frame.

This knife is geared towards the tactical user. A triangular window is utilized for low profile deployment allowing the thumb to glide across the blade surface for ease of action, as well as matching the aesthetic of the triangular magazine release on the P320 pistol.
