Named after one of Odin’s two ravens, the BlackFox Hugin by Fox Knives features a recurve drop point blade with compound grinds and a swedge to aid in penetration.
The 4″ 440C blade can be opened via a flipper mechanism or with the large blade cutout using your thumb. The blackened blade is stonewashed, increasing the corrosion resistance of the steel, and a liner lock keeps the blade open and secure.
A robust 420J2B stainless pocket clip matches the blade finish and is set up for right-side tip-up carry and a lanyard hole provides for even more carry options.
Textured black G10 handle scales provide traction, aided by machined grooves and a finger guard formed by the flipper. Two large finger grooves and a finger choil in the blade allow for various handholds.
440C Stainless Steel
While it was still a high-end steel several decades ago, 440 is a very decent middle-grade steel today. Many users still see it as the perfect “magical trifecta” of edge retention, corrosion resistance, and easy sharpening.
