Automatic knives are certainly part of Hogue's core business. So, the A01 Microswitch is also equipped with a solid, absolutely reliable automatic mechanism with a safety catch that makes this knife a pleasure for everyday tasks. The handle made from very strong aircraft aluminum (6061-T6) has a solid feel despite its compact size. The blade with a stonewash finish consists of powder metallurgical CPM-154. With a reversible clip (tip-up/l-r).
