The SOG Specialty Knives & Tools TW17-CP Twitch I is designed with intricate construction and stands out in its class, while still being a smaller, affordable knife that’s ideal for an everyday carry. Made of AUS-8 steel with an attractive satin finish, the 2-inch straight edge, folding blade has a drop point shape that sharpens easily and makes quick work of any task. This knife features a pass-through lockbar where the "kick" of the blade sticks through. By pressing on the "kick", you initiate the one hand opening of the blade and SOG Assisted Technology takes over using high-tension coil springs to finish opening and securely locking the open blade in place. The ergonomically contoured and well-balanced handle has a graphite finish and is made of anodized aluminum that will fit comfortably in your hand. A fixed pocket clip is located on the back of the handle that can also double as a money clip. This lightweight folding knife is easy to carry with a closed length of 2.75-inches, overall length of 4.75-inches, blade thickness of 0.1-inches and a weight of 2-ounces. The SOG Specialty Knives & Tools TWI7-CP Twitch I Knife with Straight Edge Folding 2-Inch AUS-8 Steel Blade comes with a limited lifetime warranty that protects against defects in manufacturing and materials. Each SOG product is created with the help of company founder and chief engineer, Spencer Frazer. Known for their uncompromising style and performance, these knives and tools showcase innovation, dependability and a unique, futuristic style that has garnered awards and recognition worldwide. SOG products have also won favor among law enforcement, military and industrial customers that rely on their tools to perform flawlessly in the toughest, most adverse conditions.
From the Manufacturer
Looking at the intricate construction of the Twitches reminds us of the workings in a fine chronograph watch; everything right and precisely in its place. These techno wizards feature a pass-through lockbar (patent pending) from which the ¿kick¿ of the blade sticks through. By pressing on the ¿kick¿, one is able to initiate the opening of the blade. S.A.T. (SOG Assisted Technology) then takes over to finish opening and to securely lock the blade open. What makes these space-age little gems even more beautiful is that they are also affordable!
