In the field of daily carry knives, the SOG FLASH 1 is a fast, lightweight, well-built, and securely carried companion. I have many of these knives and have used them extensively for both duty and personal use. As my VIDEO shows, the FLASH 1's size is perfect as is the deep carry clip. Add its good quality AUS8 steel and most importantly it's feathery 1.2 oz weight (not 1.4 oz ike I said in video) and you have the near-perfect daily carry knife. For a knife you'll have on your person at ALL times to open packages, cut food, etc. it's my top recommendation.

I bought both the Flash I and the Flash II. My reason for buying the knives was for a pocket knife to carry around day to day. With this goal in mind i sent back the Flash II.

Size wise the Flash I is ideal. It's big enough to get the job done and with SOG's low profile clip it absolutely disappears in your pocket while remaining very accessible. The Flash II is still a great knife, but along with the added length it has added width as well. Flash II's added girth makes it a little too big for day to day carry.

One last note: I found for a day to day knife the serrated edge versions of these knives is NOT the way to got. For hunting and other more extreme uses these serrations may come in handy but for cutting tape on packages and other such "office related" tasks they tend to get in the way.

I really like this small knife.

But there are a few cons:

The finger side of the grip seems like it is made for a child, my index finger would sit right on top of that little hump. I did not like this at all. In fact, I took some course sandpaper and removed it. Also the latch to disengage the blade lock is a little difficult to operate, I tried lubricating it and working it back and forth and its just not as smooth as it should be.

The Pros:
Discrete, sturdy, opens fast, nice and sharp, the shape allows it to be totally unnoticeable and VERY SECURE in your pocket. You can actually reach into you pocket and hardly notice it's clipped in there. I find most knives get in the way if I am reaching for my keys, or whatever I need.

First, I would like to say that I really tried to like this knife as I have been looking at them for a number of years. However, I tend to be extremely picky when it comes to my blades because I us them pretty often and for hard use tasks. This was going to be my everyday carry, or EDC, knife to have with me at all times. Despite the excellent price, there were certain quality issues that made me decide not to go with this knife after getting it into my hands.

I want to begin with the positives as there are some. When looking for a knife, you need it to be sharp; this is a sharp knife from the factory. It'll shave the hair of your arm with ease and rip through cardboard boxes. The AUS8 stainless still is adequate, but not the best for edge retention or corrosion resistance. Again, it is decent. However, you do not want a $200 EDC knife that you ar going to abuse. The AUS8 is affordable and easy to sharpen, exactly want you want in a blade of this type. Also a plus with this knife is its featherweight feel in the hand. It is a mere 1.2 oz, making you forget you even have it and proving easy to carry. If weight is of a concern to you, this knife may be something to consider. This knife also has a knife clip that is reversable for left and right hand carriers. I am a lefty and many knife makers are oblivious to us southpaws, so its nice to know that SOG is one of those companies helping us out. Since it is a spring assisted opening knife, it deploys extremely quick, nive for when it is needed immediately. Lastly, the knife just looks tactical and cool. The blade shape is really nice looking and effective for cutting tasks and the full-flat ground blade is razor sharp.

Now for my critiques on this blade.

This is a fine little knife and certainly performs it's role well as an EDC blade. I'm not going to complain about the Flash's small size because I knew it was a "little guy" when I bought it. What bothers me is the rattling noise made by the lock mechanism located on the handle close to the blase of the blade. Sorry, but I believe that NOTHING should rattle on a knife, no matter HOW inexpensive. Furthermore, I had to use glue to immobilize the 2nd lock mechanism on the knife which kept engaging on its own. Again, I shouldn't have to make any modifications to a knife to compensate for half-a** quality control on the part of the manufacturer. For the $30 I spent on the Flash 1, I could have bought another Spyderco Persistence, or if I wanted to be more comparabale in terms of blade length, the Spyderco Ambitious. They both have a type of steel very similar to the Flash 1, but are much more sturdy. Granted, it's fun flicking the Flash open, but that gets old after a while. Also, the lanyard hole on the Flash 1 is too small for paracord. I know it's a personal preference, but I should be able to add a lanyard if I want to, given the fact that a hole is provided for that very purpose. Again, this is an area where the $30 Spyderco knives are better hands down. I WILL give credit for the nice, deep-riding clip, but otherwise, the Flash 1 just doesn't compare to the "Tenatious" line of Spyderco knives out there, or the fantastic Kershaw knives in the same price range. The SOG Flash 1 IS lighter and smaller, which is great if that's a factor in your buying decision. I'm afraid I have to mention the handles too.Read more ›
