Featuring the SOG Assisted Technology (S.A.T), which employs a powerful piston lock that is easily released with a sliding button. We also had the foresight to incorporate an additional safety lock that gives added security when the blade is closed. When the safety shows RED you are ready to go!

I bought this knife after being let down by a few quirks with CRKT and wanting to try out another knife company. I found a cheap used one and made the purchase. I was amazed. The OUTburst opening system works so flawlessly! It always surprises all my friends when they go to open it. The locking device works pretty well too (it's no AUTO-LAWKS, but it will get the job done for sure...). The blade material is AUS-8, meaning it holds its edge QUITE well. Mine came very sharp when I bought it in late 2007 and I have not needed to sharpen it yet. The handle feels good in your hand. At times the clip can feel a tad awkward but it is not too bad. It also comes with a lock to keep it from slipping open when you don't want it too, which I find very nice when there are kids around who should not be touching it. Very satisfied with this knife, recommend to all!

When I first got this in the mail I was initially disappointed by the weight. I used to be a devoted Buck user, and the handle on this SOG felt like a toy in comparison. After much use, I've found I was wrong. Despite being light, it's extremely sturdy, still fast as ever, and holds a pretty good edge. Biggest complaints are relatively minor- I placed the order expecting the blued blade, and got the silver instead, and the clip wiggles a bit. No problem an allen wrench can't solve- I just have yet to find mine.
