Knife/Gun company collaborations are all the rage, and Hogue and Sig Sauer have joined the party with the new EX-02 Emperor Scorpion Folder. It features a 3.75″ 154CM blade, flip tab, liner lock, the G10 scales are checkered in a similar pattern to the Sig Sauer Emperor Scorpion pistol grips and the overall design compliments its namesake well.

From The Outdoor Wire:
Henderson, NV – Sig Sauer and Hogue Incorporated are proud to announce the release of the SIG SAUER EX-02 Folding Knife by Hogue. Made in the USA as a perfect accompaniment to SIG SAUER’s 1911 Emperor Scorpion firearm, the SIG EX-02 has been expertly manufactured to precise standards by Hogue, Inc. “Hogue’s quality materials and manufacturing, coupled with the innovative, purpose-driven designs of renowned bladesmith Allen Elishewitz, are a natural match for SIG SAUER,” says SIG SAUER Executive Director, GMM, Jeff Creamer.
The SIG SAUER EX-02 folding knife features a 3.75″ spear point blade born from 154 CM steel and treated with a corrosion and abrasion-resistant flat dark earth coating. It contains a flipper tab for one-hand deployment that also serves as a front guard when the knife is handled open. The knife’s stainless steel liner-lock is textured for easier one-hand operation. Encasing the blade are custom designed solid black G10 handle scales, cut with Hogue’s piranha grip scaling and boldly sporting the famous Sig brand.
“Hogue Inc is very proud of this knife,” remarked Hogue Tool and Machine president, Jim Bruhns. The quality of each and every Hogue knife is immediately apparent once in your hand, and the SIG EX-F02 is no exception.”
The Sig Sauer EX-F02 folding knife by Hogue is priced at $205.00 and can viewed or purchased on the SIG Store website at http://store.sigsauer.com/catalog/product/view/id/7854/s/sig-sauer-ex02-folding-knife-by-hogue/

At $205 for a 154CM knife, you are definitely paying for the names involved. However, it looks to be a well built and aesthetically pleasing knife. I especially like the choil/guard/flipper combination.
