If you’ve been around guns for very long at all, it’s safe to say you’ve likely heard of or handled a Hogue Inc. product.  Long known for their over-molded stocks and handgun grips, they’ve branched out and have begun producing a much wider variety of products.  Among them is the Hogue EX-T01 Tomahawk, an interesting deviation from what we’ve come to expect out of Hogue.  Having been tasked with the enjoyable job of reviewing it, let’s take a look at the spec sheet and then cover my initial impressions.

Hogue EX-T01 Tomahawk | A Chop Off The Old Block



The length of the tomahawk is 14.125″ while the ‘hawk without sheath weighs .95lbs.  With the paddle, that comes up to 1.45lbs.

The Body and Blade:

Crafted from S7 shock-resisting tool steel and cerakoted black, this hand sharpened edge is designed to last.  The tang of the Hogue EX-T01 is dressed up in G10 glass based epoxy resin laminate scales. G10 is not only incredibly durable, but offers excellent grip as well.  Take a look at the photos and you may notice behind the blade are two little holes. They are there to bolt on the optional spike, pry bar or hammer attachments. (Those attachments are sold separately so I’m not able to review them. But it’s certainly a function worth mentioning.)

The aggressive texture on the G10 scales works well

Hogue EX-T01 Sheath:

This is also crafted from G10, with both a nylon waist band paddle and Tek-Lok™ mounting points for alternate attachments. There are two means of retention used here, magnets within the sheath keep the tomahawk close and the rotating section that matches the cutout within the blade’s head keeps everything where it should be until you want it out.
