How do you follow one of the most successful designs in modern knife history? Ed Halligan's two-piece P.E.C.K.® (Precision Engineered Compact Knife) money clip knife has been a sensation for nearly a decade. But we call this smaller two-piece design Halligan's Ultimate Gadget (H.U.G. 2) because it is as small, simple and lightweight as the P.E.C.K., but so much more sophisticated and versatile.

For those who want the black tactical look, our H.U.G. 2 in the Dark, is available in non-reflective black titanium nitride blade and frame coating, plus black hardware and a black stainless steel clip.

With a 1.78" blade, this little gem weighs only 1.5 ounces and fits in pocket or purse. It's a handy pen knife, money clip and emergency knife.

Like the P.E.C.K., the H.U.G. 2 is a frame-lock folder with a single-sided blade. However, Ed has refined almost every aspect.

The blade is now a modified spear point with a single-side grind which seals against the frame. It is more useful for the type of pen knife tasks most users will give the knife. Blade material is high-carbon stainless steel with a Razor-Sharp edge.

The frame, also high-carbon stainless steel, now uses an ingenious internal frame lock. A single glass filled nylon scale makes the handle fit the hand better, and also helps prevent the blade from accidental opening. A finger choil on the bottom of the frame and friction grooves at the thumb area make for a more secure grip, and give more comfort during extended use.

A compact custom stainless steel pocket/money clip makes this a handy and useful personal carry in all situations.

Yes, the shape is different from the P.E.C.K. and more refined, but the purpose remains the same—high utility from a minimal design. And like the original K.I.S.S. and P.E.C.K. knife series, all H.U.G. models are excellent values, built to the highest-quality standards.

So whether you think of it as Halligan's Ultimate Gadget or High Utility Gear, never turn down a little H.U.G.
