Sometimes even the best-made pocket knife just isn't big enough cut it out in the brush. That's where the AU-01 comes in. Thanks to a six-inch straight-edge blade and an overall length of 10.95 inches that lets you maximize leverage while maintaining a comfortable full-hand grip, this fixed-blade knife makes quick work of even the toughest campsite and trailside tasks, and it's so versatile that you may just find yourself reaching for it at home too. Its blade is crafted from 7Cr13 stainless steel for an optimal balance of value, durability, and edge retention.
Portable, Ergonomic Design Ensures Easy, Comfortable Use
In designing the Aura line, SOG studied the original bowie knife created by Rezin Bowie in 1838 and brought the best of that traditional design to this contemporary knife by maximizing utility, ergonomics, and safety. For the type of sure grip that leads to safe, accurate cuts, this Aura knife's handle combines the comfort and the nonslip properties of a rubber overmolding with a tough body crafted from glass-reinforced Zytel - a compound that's lightweight, abrasion resistant, and impact resistant.
The knife is shaped to sit comfortably in either your right or your left hand, and its unique blade shape provides the same safety as other knives while eliminating the need for a clunky, unwieldy crossguard. Thanks to this design and these materials, this versatile fixed-blade knife weighs in at just 8.6 ounces for enhanced portability, and it is well-balanced for further enhanced comfort and control.
Integrated Sharpener Makes an Ideal Travel Partner
A sharp blade is not just a more effective blade, it's also a safer blade. And because even the most durable edges sometimes require a touch up after a tough job is completed, this innovative field knife comes with an integrated sharper, conveniently stored in the back of the knife's handle. Use it whenever and wherever you have the time to sit down and maintain your blade, and ensure that your knife is at its best the next time you reach for it.
This AU-01 Aura Fixed-Blade Camping Knife comes with a durable nylon sheath, and it is backed by a lifetime warranty that protects against defects in manufacturing and materials.
