Designed by noted tactical knifemaker Allen Elishewitz and made in the U.S.A. of premium materials by Hogue®, the new Star-Light is the toughest lightweight tactical folder on the market today. The unique, over-sized button lock provides amazing security and smooth function under any field condition without sacrificing any speed of opening. Weighing in at four ounces, the Star-Light is a joy to carry in any type of attire or situation.
The Star-Light tactical drop point blade is ground from premium U.S.A. 154-CM stainless steel, cryogenically tempered and noted for its toughness. The edge is honed to a polished, razor-like finish and rides on a hardened, oversize pivot for glassy smooth operation.
A deep pocket carry clip, reversible for tip-up or tip-down carry is standard as well as a recessed lanyard loop. A robust semi-auto safety has also been engineered into the Star-Light and when pushed in the forward position will automatically "double lock" the blade upon opening for extra, added cutting security. This is truly a fail-safe tactical folder.
The exclusive Wilson Combat® Starburst grip pattern locks the Star-Light into your grip and also adds ideal traction to the pocket clip for perfect retention. The perfectly mated handles are machined from Hogue's proprietary G-Mascus® G-10 laminate that is lightweight yet practically indestructible and has a unique Damascus-style pattern running through the material. Ambidextrous thumb studs enable fast, fluid opening with either hand.
A Wilson Combat® grip medallion identifies the knife as a Wilson exclusive that you will be proud to carry along with your custom pistol.
Light, Smooth, Tough are all hallmarks of this outstanding new collaboration.

|Beautiful Knife built for practical use||2/14/2014|
|Today I recieved my new Hogue Starlight tactical knife 3.5. For me, my knives are tools which get a lot of use and need to be dependable. I was immedately impressed with the design, weight, and functionability. I have went through plenty of cheaper knives which always seem worth exactly what I paid for them. Although this was more money than I would like to spend, I was not disappointed. Definately worth the investment.|

|Built Like A Tank||4/4/2012|
|I just took delivery of the Hogue WTK-Starlight. Im a long time collector and user and have many knives but for the kind of knife it is I must say it is the best I have ever seen or owned and I have them all! Its built like a tank but doesnt weigh like a tank. I have the 3 1/2 inch model. I really like the safety slide. Im going to order the 4 inch from you as well. The only reason that Im writing is that people write either for information or to complain. I figured you might appreciate getting a fan letter every once in a while. You make a great knife, period.|
|Star no so Bright||1/4/2012|
|Ok, new toy today. Hogue EX01 done WC style! WC did an outstanding job with the star pattern and imbedded logo on the grip. Sweet looking grip handle. Awesome job. The G-mascus handle is very light weight. No liner inside the knife so weight is reduced. Just makes it blade heavy. The volcano thumb stud is nicely done, but no matter how hard you try to push up with your thumb on the stud, the knife will not deploy fully until you give it a final wrist flick. The take down\release button is new and I like it. The safety is adjacent to the release button and will lock the blade when fully deployed. It is in a much better position than the SOG knives, which is at the palm of the grip. The safety is smooth and easy to switch on and off. Not that I need a safety... Jimping is not aggressive and the spacing is too far apart to hold your thumb in place. The index finger is tightly snug into the recess of the grip. It has that VZ Grip notched thumb look and feel. The WC logo on the pocket clip is classic. You cannot mistake this baby not being a Wilson. No issues with front pocket carry and retrieval of the knife. The blade is very sharp. Do not mistake the blacked blade as being dull. It will slice paper like confetti. Overall, WC did an outstanding job with the grip handle and logo. Worth the extra money to have it done the WC tactical way. If I had to do it over I would of opted for the tanto blade.|
