First Look: HK First Response Tool

Hogue is known for making stocks for long guns, revolver and pistol grips and knives, and now has collaborated with Heckler and Koch (HK) to bring the new HK First Response Tool to market.

The Hogue/HK First Response Tool is a multi-purpose, folding pocketknife built around a S45VN steel blade measuring 3.5 inches long with combination serrated and a drop-point profile.

The handle is built from G10, a popular and durable resin material often seen on both knife handles and handgun grips. The HK First Response Tool also has many useful features including a seat belt cutter, carbide glass breaking point and a slot on the spine that can be used to open oxygen tank valves.
