Hogue Exploit OTF AUTO Knife 3.5" S30V Stonewashed Clip Point Blade, Gray Aluminum Handles Read more.
The Hogue Exploit Out the Front, or OTF, automatic is designed for repeatable one-handed operation in close-quarter situations. It's the same basic design as the original Hogue OTF but with a slightly redesigned handle and more compact thumb slide. This trigger fires the blade with impressive force and retracts is just as fast. The anodized 6061-T6 aluminum frame is sculpted for an ergonomic grasp and comfortable deployment with a honeycomb pattern for additional grip.
Deployment is based around a strong, custom-designed, oversized coil spring that has been extensively tested and integrated to provide force along the pivot's entire range of motion. The double-action deployment Out the Front models utilize extension springs to produce an impressive, repeatable deployment and a PVD coating for enhanced wear protection. The result is an automatic that kicks open with authority every time you call on it. Each knife is individually tested and laser-etched with a unique serial number before it bears the Hogue name.
