Hogue Knives Tritium Infused Out the Front Automatics

Henderson, NV – Hogue Knives® is pleased to announce the addition of tritium infused Out the Front Automatic Knives to their full line of precision cutting instruments. Select Hogue Out the Front Knives have been enhanced by incorporating tritium triggers. Tritium in a knife allows the user to immediately locate and orient the knife in low to no-light conditions.

Tritium is made of hydrogen and originates in a gaseous form. The tritium gas is encapsulated into tiny borosilicate glass vials coated with phosphorescent paint. The gas excites the phosphor, creating a “glow” without the need for outside energy. The half-life of tritium is 12.3 years. Hogue has partnered with Night Fision™ , who is licensed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to legally use H3 tritium in approved devices. Tritium is innocuous and completely safe to handle.

Hogue Out the Front Knives sport a 0.125” CPM S30V stainless steel blade that is designed to offer the best combination of toughness, wear and corrosion resistance. The 3.5“ tanto or clip point blades are sealed with a black PVD coating, and are hand sharpened and honed to a keen edge. The blade is controlled by a double action automatic trigger deployment and retraction.

Hogue offers tritium triggers in their popular OTF Exploit and Compound models as well as the Incursion built for HK Knives. These knives are available in solid black with an MSRP of $359.95 – $399.95.

Every Hogue knife is made in the USA and is backed by three generations of manufacturing expertise. Hogue’s automatic knives are only for sale to legally permitted users through authorized dealers. For more information, please call Hogue directly at 1-800-438-4747 or visit
