Constructed from a single piece of steel, the SlimJim XL technical assisted folding knife in silver (model SJ-51) from SOG Specialty Knives and Tools stands out by virtue of simplicity and minimalism. It doesn't try to be the biggest or the loudest in the crowd. It is unobtrusive but always there when you need it. And it's one of the slimmest technical assisted folding knives on the market (.078-inch blade width) with a 4.18-inch stainless steel blade.
Start to open the blade, and let SOG Assisted Technology (S.A.T.) finish the action with a bang, using one of the surest assisted technologies out there. Tactile bumps and cutouts aid in control while all features are purposeful and functional. The patent-pending safety is used to insure the retention of the blade in the handle as well as acts as a double lock in the open position.
Thumb grooves on the stainless steel handle provide a comfortable and controlled grip. It also includes a reversible bayonet pocket clip for a close carry and quick access. All SOG products are guaranteed against defects in workmanship and materials for the life of the original purchaser.
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.

It has the tightest action on a pocket knife I have ever experienced. VERY hard to deploy blade for the first 50-100 openings. I finally got it broken in a little and noticed a few problems. The blade centering when closed is terrible, the blade is all the way to the right and scrapes every time I close it. The knife itself feels extremely flimsy, I feel that I can easily bend/break the blade off. It looks very cool, feels good in my pocket, but the blade centering and general flimsy feel might earn this knife a return.
It's quite a lot of blade to marvel at. Feels good in hand. Quite a serious and unique knife with an interesting design. And I've got about 40 different folding knives and fixed blades.
The length of this blade is reminiscent of the Spyderco Police model. That's a really great knife too.
Some people had said that the knife opened in their pocket because it was so loose. I did NOT have this problem. In fact, it's so tight that it's going to take several uses before it gets easier to open. Using the thumb nub once is enough to dent your thumb pretty deep.
Some people said that the thumb nub was screwed on and would unscrew. I didn't have this problem.
It's a deep-pocket knife, so it will sit in your pocket with almost nothing but the clip to show.
It DOES have a blade lock, but it locks the blade OPEN, not closed. Not only do you not need it to lock closed- because it stays closed perfectly well on its own- this is actually useful because the lock is on the spine. You have to push the lever on the spine of the knife to close it. So if you're cutting something, you will grip the knife, unlocking the knife. So there's a slider that you can slip under the lever to keep it from unlocking.
It's super thin and discrete.
Sharp out of the box. Cut myself several times just slightly touching the blade.
The knife is very difficult to open- especially using the thumb nubs. I've been opening and closing it a lot and it's still tough to open with one hand. I oiled the joint- and it helped- but it's still very difficult to open. At least it won't pop open in your pocket.
There are ridges on the edge of the handle- not sure what for- but they're pretty jagged, so they can dig into your hand pretty hard.
If you open the knife with your hand along the top of the joint, you can pinch yourself pretty well.
I think every knife should be cleaned and adjusted every so often when you use it things settle loosen and get dusty I do this with every knife I own.
I have had no problems with the safety's and am very glad they are there I like the security of locking it open and locking it closed I will gladly spend another half a second to know it won't open in my pocket or close on my hand. It also seems like should I want to remove it (which I have no desire to) it could be done without any issues.
The knife threw open a bit slower than the tanto and other assisted open knives at first the blade is longer so I felt that was the cause but it opens every time now no problem. ( now it's been a few days and it snaps open quick and clean every time I think the torsion bar just needed to move a bit and had probably been sitting closed for a long time)
The knife is thin and long it's just over two quarters thick (the coin) so it takes a minute to become familiar with it but becomes second nature in a day or two.
I love it and would get it again it is very discrete and only the clip is visible when it's away it's a little long but very nice confident blade.
