The SOG Specialty Knives & Tools TWI8-CP Twitch II 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 2.65-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 3.55-inches, overall length of 6.20-inches, blade thickness of 0.1-inches and a weight of 2.60-ounces. The SOG Specialty Knives & Tools TWI8-CP Twitch II Knife with Straight Edge Assisted Folding 2.65-Inch AUS-8 Steel Blade comes with a limited lifetime warranty that protects against defects in manufacturing and materials.

When you go to unfold the TWI-8's blade, SOG's patented S.A.T. (SOG Assisted Technology) takes over. High-tension coil springs propel the blade open, so you can easily access the TWI-8's blade with just one hand. Additionally, the unique design of S.A.T. knives offers security and peace of mind by incorporating locking mechanisms that are stronger, more reliable, and easier to access than conventional liner locks.
Cryogenic Heat Treatment for a Sharp, Dependable Blade
The TWI-8 offers a full, 2.68-inch, AUS8 stainless steel blade with an attractive satin finish. Because the workhorse of any knife is its cutting surface, SOG's proprietary Cryogenic Heat Treatment process ensures that its blade will stay sharp over the long haul. This intensive process takes more than 48 hours and requires reducing the blade's temperature to less than -300 degrees Fahrenheit, then slowly heating the blade to room temperature. The stress created by this process strengthens the stainless steel at the atomic level and increases the blade's overall durability and edge retention.
Ergonomic, Lightweight Design Ensures Comfortable Use
Even if your blade is sharp, it's hard to make precise cuts if your knife doesn't fit comfortably in your hand. That's why this knife's handle is ergonomically contoured. Crafted from hard-anodized 6061-T6 aluminum, the textured handle is also slip-free and well-balanced.
And at just 2.6 ounces, this folding knife is lightweight and easy to carry. A reversible clip extends from the back of the handle, allowing the knife to sit low in your pocket for the most discreet carry possible. An added bonus, the pocket clip can double as a money clip.
This knife is backed by a lifetime warranty that protects against defects in manufacturing and materials.
