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 virtually as small, simple and lightweight as the P.E.C.K., but so much more sophisticated and versatile.

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 in a bead-blast finish with a Razor-Sharp edge.

The frame, also bead-blast 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.
