First Look: Hogue Trauma Folding Knife

posted on March 17, 2020
Hogue Knives has added the Trauma to its line of precision-cutting instruments. Sporting a .125-inch thick, 3.4-inch long Bohler N680 steel blade, which comes in either a sheepsfoot or opposing-bevel design, the Trauma is available both partially serrated and not, with a stone-washed or black Cerakote finish. To securely retain the blade when carried, the Trauma boasts an ABLE locking mechanism, with a tough lock bar and Wolff wireform springs. The knife's lightweight exterior is manufactured from medium-textured peel-ply G10, in either solid black or safety orange, intended to provide a balance between aggressive grip and in-hand comfort. The frame, meanwhile, houses a deployable strap cutter, an oxygen-valve wrench and a carbide glass-breaker. For maximum portability, this knife is finished with a low-profile, tip-up ambidextrous pocket clip, and a MOLLE-compatible knife pouch is included.
