SOG Assisted Technology for Speed and Safety
Fast, safe, one-handed opening makes SOG Flash Series knives incredibly easy to handle in a wide variety of situations. Once you start opening the knife, SOG's Patented SOG Assisted Technology, or S.A.T., takes over. Through the balance of opposing high-tension coil springs in the knife, the force to propel the knife open becomes greater than the closing force, and the blade will open on its own. This unique feature means that if you are using your dominant hand on another task, you can just as easily open the FSA-8 with your other hand.

For security and peace of mind, S.A.T. was developed in conjunction with a superior locking system. The unique design of S.A.T. knives allows them to use locking mechanisms that are stronger, more reliable, and easier to access ambidextrously than conventional liner locks.

For Flash Series knives, this means the blade is held in place with a reliable piston lock that can be released quickly with a sliding button. An additional safety lock offers extra security when the blade is closed. For easy reference, the lock switch shows red when the knife is ready to open.

Cryogenic Heat Treatment for Sharp, Dependable Blades
Of course the workhorse of any knife is the cutting surface, and the FSA-8 offers a full, 3.5-inch, straight blade with an elegant satin finish.

SOG's proprietary Cryogenic Heat Treatment process ensures that this blade will stay sharp over the long haul. This intensive process takes more than 48 hours and involves slowly bringing the blade's temperature down to less than -300 degrees Fahrenheit, then bringing it slowly back to room temperature. The stress created through this process relieves the material on an atomic level and increases overall strength and edge retention.

Elegant, Ergonomic Design for Ease of Use
Even if your blade is sharp, it's hard to make the cuts you want if a knife doesn't sit comfortably in your hand. That's why the handle on this knife features a unique, ergonomic contour. Crafted from tough, glass-reinforced Zytel, the handle helps ensure that your knife is both durable and well-balanced. And it is lightly textured to prevent slippage.

At just 3.1 ounces, this folding knife is lightweight and easy to carry. A reversible, bayonet-mounted clip extends from the back of the handle, allowing the knife to sit low in your pocket for the most discreet carry possible.

This knife is backed by a lifetime warranty that protects against defects in workmanship and materials.

I own a copy of the Flash II. I would give it five stars as a utility knife, three stars as a defense backup, and five stars for every-day carry. Allow me to share my experience.

The knife has great quality for its Amazon price. This means factory sharp is respectable, edge retention is good, sharpening is easy (for plain edge version), and grip is good. Please do not compare $50 knives against $250 knives.

This is a great folding knife. The safety switch is a plus for me because I have kids. It's good to know that when my kids grabbed my knife (it fell to the floor when I fumbled), they could not open it until I choose to teach them about the safety.

The one-handed opening design called Assisted Opening works well. It really is a pleasure to open and close as advertised. But it's not as slick as my Kershaw Blur. The Flash II is fast, but not lightening fast. The locking mechanism is sturdy. Not as fancy as the Arc-lock on my $100 Benchmade.

The Flash II is a great carry knife. It is light weight (about 3.1 oz for zytel handle version), rides deep in the pocket (thanks to the clip design), and has a safety switch to prevent accidental opening. The plastic (excuse me, Zytel) handle is very light because SOG did not reinforce it with metal insert. So expect more play in the knife even after tightening the main screw - it's just the flex from the handle.

This is not a strong fighting knife. The blade is thicker than, say, a Kershaw Leek or Onion but is not meant for hacking similar to say a cleaver. The blade is short for a fighter at only 3 1/2 inches.

But this can be better than most pocket knives if you ever have to cover your retreat with a backup knife. (if this happens, you are in deep doodoo anyways).

Hey everyone, this is my first post...
I purchased the Sog Flash II as my first knife and I'll write about the quality of the knife and the advertised features.

The Flash came razor sharp out of the box and is still that way. I don't know much about different types of steel, but so far there are no mark or anything on the blade.

Blade play - The knife does have a slight lateral blade play. I have not yet tried to tighten it on my own so I don't know if that would help.

S.A.T. - The assisted technology opens the knife very nicely. In my hand it feels like I push just enough and it will snap open, I don't need to push to hard and a little whimsy push won't do it so it wont' open on it's own. I've never had it open in my pocket yet or any time when I didn't want it to.

Safety lock - Useful, but very small therefore not allowing one to turn the safety off and open the knife all with one hand. However, since it won't open in your pocket anyways, one doesn't really need the safety while they think they'll be using the knife.

Handle - Very comfortable and I haven't slipped at all on it yet.

Lock - So far it is 100% reliable, only thing is it takes slightly too much pressure to close it.

Clip - Good tension. However it's starting to get a lot of lateral play and it's cracking the plastic at the bottom of the knife (due to the play). It hasn't fallen out though cause I imagine it is screwed in.

Size - Very nice size, big enough to do whatever needs to be done yet totally intrusive. When I put it in the corner of the pocket I can't feel it there at all.

Overall - A very good knife, sharp, strong and I'd recommend it. The only reasons for which I gave it 4 stars instead of five is the slight blade play and the play in the clip (since it's cracking the handle). It's certainly worth the money.

Hope that was useful....
Cheers

I researched this knife before buying it. I like the fit and finish of the knife. It seems to be well balanced and fits and feels good in my hands. Its razer sharp right out of the box. This knife opens smooth and swift. The only thing I found that could be improved some is the belt clip, its sturdy and heavy duty but some times it is hard to get off of the belt or even harder if clipped over the edge of your pocket. I am getting use to it and its getting easyer the more I use it. Over all it's a great knife for the money.

I love the action and the fact that it's left or right handed. I like the size of the blade and handle, also the way the blade is ground looks really cool, the spine is thick and tapers down to a very sharp point. The pocket clip reins supreme since it is reversible and allows the knife to sink deep enough into the pocket for that extra bit of security. The knife isn't easy to take apart and resemble so if you get anything in the coil spring you will just have to hose it off and re-oil. The action could be smoother but this is hardly worth complaining about, it may wear in a little over time and become better. I can see how the aluminum handle version of this knife would be better but the plastic handle is good quality and serves it's purpose well. I can't complain about anything really. The lock to lock the blade closed could have been incorporated with the blade fold release but I don't even see why it is necessary to lock the blade closed in the first place, maybe in the event of kids getting hold of it. The slight back and forth play when the blade is open is barley noticeable. No side play in blade since I tightened the pivot screw, although tightening it too much may cause a little more friction on the side of the blade. I would have preferred it if the blade took a little less pressure to open and close.
The reason for not giving it five stars is just because of the few small negatives listed, I think I'm just nitpicking, you may get a better knife but doubtfully at this price. An interesting note is that the blade fold release on the one I got is a round button with a slightly curved groove, I think It's better looking than the one in the picture.
