I got the Hogue EX01 5 years ago on the secondary market in a used condition. When it came in, I had to bring it back in condition. The edge was dull, the action was terrible, it had bladeplay and it was not centered. A well used knife.
After I cleaned and sharpened it, I tuned the action and centering. Result: a great knife with superb action, very well centered and no bladeplay. This was how I imagined the Hogue EX01 would be.
So 5 years later, I carried and used this knife a lot. What is my experience with this knife? I will tell you all about this in the video below. By the way Hogue celebrates being 10 years in business with the knife division this year!
