Caring for Your Folding Knife
Keeping your knife clean, dry, oiled and sharp are the primary defenses against corrosion, wear, and potential injury. Be sure to clean the blade and handle after each use--however, do not soak your knife in water. A mild solution of soap and water should remove any dirt and debris that may have accumulated during use (avoid harsh detergents such as laundry or dish soap, and chlorine products). To remove any debris from inside the handle you can use a toothpick for any visible lint or dirt, or a Q-Tip for smaller amounts of dirt and debris.
After cleaning or after exposure to moisture be sure to completely dry your knife blade and handle, taking special care with any sensitive handle materials. Use a soft cotton cloth or chamois and a small amount of moisture-displacing oil (such as WD-40 or 3-in-1), on the blade only, to prevent water spots and oxidation from forming.
Fingerprints and weather are the primary causes of rusting or corrosion on a knife blade. To keep your knife looking its best, SOG recommends that you give your blade a light coat of oil after each cleaning, and prior to long term storage. Be sure to also apply a Paraffin-based oil to the pivot point, which will not only keep the action of your blade smooth but will repel dirt and debris which could impede the blade's action.

Top Customer Reviews
I believe SOG absolutely killed it with this specific knife. While not the craziest knife collector by any means, I'm a very mechanically/machine inclined person and can certainely appreciate very smart and efficient manufacturing. My experience goes back to many mainstream knife companies, mostly in the 3"-4" blade, folder, EDC type, $30-50 range. This one by far, for the price is just insane. Every single detail of this knife is honestly suprising. Not because it's overly packed with micro-level touch-ups, but because it's so straightforward/simple in design combined with strength and no non-sense thinking.
Knife is extremely durable, no play, great design features. Blade material is good, length is appropriate, G10 Scaling makes knife very grippy, the large flared finger guard before blade starts is extremely important and well appreciated (seen knives without them cut their wielders fingers in fights as they slip), steel lined core casing provides extremely strong interface w/o any flex, the many small and large grip serrations throughout are very tough and pronounced, no safety issues/complaints at all, lockback is beyond solid and assuring, coating is good, ergonomics are decent. Quality-wise, there is no slop at all which is awesome to see, plus blade sits centered. Blade is hair shaving sharp from the start.
Only thing pointing out (as with many lockback knives) is that it does take some time to break in and get the action to smooth out. To me, I don't mind the weight, especially when the Mfr. puts more effort into other aspects of the knife. I do like the weight and balance.
Overall a perfect knife in my honest opinion, and for the price point, no frills, but that is obvious. One would be extremely hard pressed to find a more competent knife at this level that performs at a high degree. Just simply put, this knife has all the right (straight forward) characteristics. If you want a reasonably priced knife with good amounts of quality, that attenuates grip and solid lockback design, this is it right here.
I broke my last pocket knife (a Gerber that I loved) being stupid and trying to pry something I had no business prying on with a knife. Since it busted my daily blade I went on search of a new one. SOG has a lot of interesting knives, and whittling down which one to buy was a challenge. Over all my decision came down to about the worse possible attribute when shopping for a blade: How it looked.
Looks in a knife are purely personal, and most of the time highly irrelevant. The look of the FF-11 is one of the irrelevant cases. It's handle doesn't look like it provides any extra "live without" features, though there is a rescission between the handle and thumb assist that allows a very comfortable and easy access to flip out your blade.
The FF-11 is COMPLETELY ambidextrous. The clip belt/pocket clip is easy to move from one side of the handle to the other. The thumb assist is located in a narrow open space on the blade, and allows for the assist to be relocated higher or lower on the blade for personal preference. The assist can be reached from ether side of the blade, and the recession mentioned above is also found on each side. The blade is located in a perfectly centered position, reducing and deterioration of the blade or handle from constant rubbing, and when closed the blade does not press into the "back wall" of the handle.
The blade has a beautiful "walk and talk". Meaning it is beautifully easy to open, a small nudge and flick of the wrist brings about a resounding and very final "clack". The noise is reassuring, and for a knife lover like myself beautiful. It opens and closes smoothly, not a hitch to be seen, heard, felt, nothing. It's one solid motion.
When fully extended the blade is a beautiful black, with a shiny, razor sharp edge. Five minuets with this blade and my brother is already nursing a nasty cut. (He was playing with her, missed his nail while presumably attempting to trim it, and it SUNK easily through his skin.) So be warned, if your one of those that "just need a knife" and your use to something from Wal-Mart please treat this with extra caution, other wise you'll end up like him.
The spine of the FF-11 holds the "lock back". The location will not allow (at least to my knowledge, and I HAVE tried) for an accidental closure, but it's action when in use is smooth, and completely fluent.
The Belt/Pocket clip IS VERY STIFF. I know it was said in earlier reviews, I personally fixed this by wrapping a dime in a kitchen plastic wrap (one layer only, enough to keep the dime from roughing up my handle anymore then completely necessarily) and placing it between the clip and handle. It took about two days (leaving it from the time I got home till I left the next morning) to gap enough to easily, yet securely, clip on my pocket.
I ordered this new, and the package it came in was open, busted up, and falling apart. The knife looks perfect. I'm fairly certain the boxing was open due to it being a "show case" item. Even if you kept this blade for just a show case you wouldn't be disappointed. When they come back in stock I'll be ordering (from the same supplier I hope. They were fairly amazing.) at least two more, just to keep around in case I do something stupid with this one.
It cost me almost 50 dollars for the FF-11 I have here. I would GLADLY shell out 110-120 for her. 50 dollars with faster then normal shipping was a steal, I really do think it's been completely under priced.
Side note: You won't find many reviews from me I think I've written three now.) So let that be a statement to just how much I'm in love with this blade.
