Review of Hogue Grips X5 Folding Knife

Hogue X5 3.5″ Folder CPM154 Review for 2017


This knife is not a new 2017 edition from the people at Hogue it was around in 2016 but boy is it a beauty.The Hogue Grips X5 Folding knife is a must for 2017 it is beautiful to look at and the feel and grip are even more spectacular when you handle it.

It carries a nice weight so that you know you have a big boy’s knife in your hand when you handle it. The blade is sharp on arrival and thought its too soon to say how long it will hold a sharp edge from my experience that doesn’t seem to be a problem going forward. This awesome folder is completely manual with no springs but with an internal system that allows for fast deployment with a smooth silky action.
