This is a very light knife.
WJ
It has a great assisted opening and bolt-style locking mechanism as well as a lock that prevents the blade from opening.

This is a perfect, small, EDC (every day carry) knife.

In the field of daily carry knives, the SOG FLASH 1 is a fast, lightweight, well-built, and securely carried companion. I have many of these knives and have used them extensively for both duty and personal use. As my VIDEO shows, the FLASH 1's size is perfect as is the deep carry clip. Add its good quality AUS8 steel and most importantly it's feathery 1.2 oz weight (not 1.4 oz ike I said in video) and you have the near-perfect daily carry knife. For a knife you'll have on your person at ALL times to open packages, cut food, etc. it's my top recommendation.

I bought both the Flash I and the Flash II. My reason for buying the knives was for a pocket knife to carry around day to day. With this goal in mind i sent back the Flash II.

Size wise the Flash I is ideal. It's big enough to get the job done and with SOG's low profile clip it absolutely disappears in your pocket while remaining very accessible. The Flash II is still a great knife, but along with the added length it has added width as well. Flash II's added girth makes it a little too big for day to day carry.

One last note: I found for a day to day knife the serrated edge versions of these knives is NOT the way to got. For hunting and other more extreme uses these serrations may come in handy but for cutting tape on packages and other such "office related" tasks they tend to get in the way.

I really like this small knife.

But there are a few cons:

The finger side of the grip seems like it is made for a child, my index finger would sit right on top of that little hump. I did not like this at all. In fact, I took some course sandpaper and removed it. Also the latch to disengage the blade lock is a little difficult to operate, I tried lubricating it and working it back and forth and its just not as smooth as it should be.

The Pros:
Discrete, sturdy, opens fast, nice and sharp, the shape allows it to be totally unnoticeable and VERY SECURE in your pocket. You can actually reach into you pocket and hardly notice it's clipped in there. I find most knives get in the way if I am reaching for my keys, or whatever I need.

First, I would like to say that I really tried to like this knife as I have been looking at them for a number of years. However, I tend to be extremely picky when it comes to my blades because I us them pretty often and for hard use tasks. This was going to be my everyday carry, or EDC, knife to have with me at all times. Despite the excellent price, there were certain quality issues that made me decide not to go with this knife after getting it into my hands.

I want to begin with the positives as there are some. When looking for a knife, you need it to be sharp; this is a sharp knife from the factory. It'll shave the hair of your arm with ease and rip through cardboard boxes. The AUS8 stainless still is adequate, but not the best for edge retention or corrosion resistance. Again, it is decent. However, you do not want a $200 EDC knife that you ar going to abuse. The AUS8 is affordable and easy to sharpen, exactly want you want in a blade of this type. Also a plus with this knife is its featherweight feel in the hand. It is a mere 1.2 oz, making you forget you even have it and proving easy to carry. If weight is of a concern to you, this knife may be something to consider. This knife also has a knife clip that is reversable for left and right hand carriers. I am a lefty and many knife makers are oblivious to us southpaws, so its nice to know that SOG is one of those companies helping us out. Since it is a spring assisted opening knife, it deploys extremely quick, nive for when it is needed immediately. Lastly, the knife just looks tactical and cool. The blade shape is really nice looking and effective for cutting tasks and the full-flat ground blade is razor sharp.

Now for my critiques on this blade.

First off this knife is everything you may have read about it. I don't know much what to add in terms of its positive features. In summary:

* The combination of its light weight yet positive and solid lockup is awesome.
* The plain blade rocks (unless the blade is a foot long and it's dedicated to slicing bread there is almost no reason to buy any knife with serrations).
* The reversible and point-up clip is great.
* The S.A.T. is great fun and wonderfully practical.
* It came real sharp. I usually spend a lot of time with my Spyderco SharpMaker getting blades into serviceable condition but it was not necessary here.
* The locking mechanism works fine (although it won't get much use).
* The FRN texturing is effective for what this knife will be used for.
* The blade shape is ideal for nearly any reasonable task you'd ask a small EDC knife to carry out.

And on the downside:
* The blade came with some annoying play side-to-side (horizontally). This was easy to correct though as you can just tighten up the pivot pin a wee bit.
* There is a little lateral play however that the pivot pin has nothing to do with. It is very minor but is a fault in manufacture.
* The finger swells/grooves suck. If you are over about 12 years old there is nowhere to grip the handle with authority. I fixed this however and took a bastard file and sand paper to the handle and smoothed out the profile to look a little more like the SOG Aegis. Now not only do I get a sure grip on this little knife but the thumb stud is much easier to access for blade deployment.

Even with the things I don't like I still give this handy knife 4 stars. It's functional, handy, sharp, fun, almost invisible in the pocket, and is priced competitively - here on Amazon anyway. It's a great EDC blade and I foresee carrying it on my person (whether in jeans or a suit) for many, many years.
