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.

You simply cant do better than this. This is a folding knife that youll want to carry every day.|
|Big knife in a light package||6/23/2014|
|Make no mistake, this is a big blade in a very light package. A big plus is how solid the blade locks into place, with no movement. Where it can be improved, while attractive, the handle could be softer around the edges. Furthermore, more effort could have been put into maximizing the edge on the blade.|
|THIS STAR REALLY SHINES||12/5/2013|
|This Wilson/Hogue alliance EX-01 folding knife is magnificent in every respect. Instead of telling you of its numerous virtues in this forum, Wilson should soon be adding a PDF document on this product page that youll be able to click on and read my lengthy test and evaluation. Once you see how great this knife is, youll want the Tanto-blade version too.|
