Product Description

Product Description

The SOG Specialty Knives & Tools VL-12 Vulcan Mini is a folding knife that is formidable with a powerful strength of construction. Made of VG10 steel with an attractive hardcase black TiNi finish, this premium Japanese steel is specially designed for high-quality blades used in cutlery and known for its durability and maintaining a hardness of Rc 60 without becoming brittle. The 3-inch straight edge, folding blade has a clip point shape that allows a quicker and deeper puncture upon insertion, sharpens easily and makes quick work of any task. The blade of this limited knife provides lightning-quick, one-handed opening and closing capability thanks to the special Arc-Lock for ambidexterity. The ergonomically contoured and well-balanced handle has a black finish and is made of a high strength, no-slip, abrasion and impact resistant glass-reinforced nylon to fit comfortably in your hand. A reversible pocket clip extends from the back of the handle, allowing the Vulcan Mini to sit low in your pocket for the most discreet carry possible. This pocket clip can also double as a money clip. The knife has a closed length of 4.35-inches, overall length of 7.35-inches, blade thickness of 0.13-inches and weighs 3.4-ounces. The SOG Specialty Knives & Tools VL-12 Vulcan Mini Knife 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.

The Vulcan Mini truly is heavy armament. Named after the General Electric M61A1 Vulcan Gatling Gun, which is used on tactical fighters including the F-15, the Vulcan is a proven knife, and features VG-10 steel, a glass-reinforced nylon handle and one of the most powerful locking mechanisms in the world, the Arc-Lock.

The SOG Specialty Knives VL-12 Vulcan Mini offers:
  • A straight edge blade with a black TiNi finish
  • Arc-Lock locking mechanism
  • Convenient blade kick opening
  • A contoured, glass-reinforced nylon handle
  • Includes a reversible low-carry pocket clip
Blade Coating for Strength

The VL-12 Vulcan Mini Knife blade is coated in proprietary titanium nitride (TiNi), one of the toughest coatings that can be applied to steel. TiNi boasts extreme hardness, is exceptionally scratch and peel resistant, helps increase steel's longevity and ensures low reflectivity in covert operations.

The Vulcan Mini features a pass-through lock-bar and blade kick, which open the blade with a simple touch along the spine of the knife.

SOG Arc-Lock, one of the most powerful locks in the world

The Arc-Lock uses a pivotal block to lock the blade in place, and offers an ambidextrous, extremely strong, and easy to use knife. Best of all, it is tested to withstand more than 1,000 pounds of pressure on the lock itself. It is considered to be one of the finest locks available.

Low-Carry Pocket Clip

The SOG Vulcan Mini product line includes a reversible, low-carry pocket clip. The clip protrudes from the butt of the knife, providing discreet and accessible carry. Plus, the clip is easily reversible for whichever side is most convenient.

Ergonomic, Lightweight Design Ensures Comfortable Use

Even if your knife is sharp, it's hard to make precise cuts when it doesn't fit comfortably in your hand. This knife's handle is ergonomically contoured with a textured handle to prevent slipping, and it's made with glass-reinforced nylon. At just 3.4 ounces, this folding knife is lightweight and easy to carry, yet sturdy enough in the hand to inspire confidence.

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

It is razor sharp and takes an edge very easy.

While the blade is thick and heavy, the knife is well balanced.

I own a handful of knives and this one is hands down my favorite. Feels perfect in the hand, came wicked sharp and keeps the edge. Only complaint is about SOG and not the knife, they have horrible customer service.

I got it under $95 w/ shp.
I'd got 3.5" blade, but 3.0" fits in my hand fine (I wear MED glove).
So light, it's not even feel it's in my pocket.
Sharp enough to shave hair on my arm.
Solid as it is when open or close.
Easy and quick to open w/o effort.

I have both the 3 and 3.5 inch knives. This one was a birthday present for my oldest friend.

The blade pops right open although the black coated blades need to be used a little to smooth the action. The blades on all mine lock up tight when open, The handle is metal lined and does not flex. The liner is hard to see in the coated models. I was pleased with the sharp blade edge when they arrived. It fits my hand very well.

Nice quality, stays sharp, easy to open, fits nicely in your pocket and still gives you a usable blade size. Only reason it is not a 5 is the blade has an extremely small amount of movement backward when locked. I have heard this about a lot of these knifes.

I have been watching this knife for over 2 years, waiting for enough funds and for the price to drop. The price never really dropped, however, it is definitely worth the cost. The blade is razor sharp and nice looking. While the blade is thick and heavy, the knife is well balanced. The Zytel handle may feel cheap to some, but it has great traction, and is light weight. The pocket clip is a little chincy, but clips nice and deep in the pocket. The knife opens smoothly, with a nice soft click.

This knife is as beautiful and sturdy as the Seal Pup, and as quick and sharp as the Twitch II. It is thick, but light. This is a beautifully crafted knife. While it was worth the wait, I would have loved to have it from first sight. So, don't waste any more time if you are on the fence, you will love this knife.

This is truly a quality knife.

Pros:

Excellent thick vg10 blade
Assist works very well.
Smooth opening and closing.
Handle is light but still great quality.
Jimping on handle and blade is in the right places.
Thumb screws tapered to not cause scraping of fingers.

Cons:

Assist still requires a flick of the wrist
Because the thumb screws are tapered may cause you to slip.

The cons were not really cons for me but I can see them to be an issue for some. Otherwise this is an excellent edc folder.

Buy it you won't be sorry.
