One of SOG's Best
I added this model to my tactical folder collection, and it rotates in and out of my EDC. It is extremely light weight so I will pick this knife over a heavier/larger one depending on what I'm wearing. Very high quality materials, design and function. I have large hands and the ergonomics are great, too. The blade deployment is almost immediate, and it's shape and sharpness are also virtues of this model. At first, I was put off by the price, but after having it in my hand and using/carrying it, I find it to be well worth it's purchase price. One of my other EDC's is one of SOG's Flash II's with the black blade and handle. I don't know what "plastic" they use at SOG, but my Flash II is about 8 years old and it still looks brand new! Also, SOG has by far the best pocket clip - works perfectly and sits the knife handle out of sight, in your pocket. Buck uses a similar clip in some of their knives and it works just as well. I have over 400 folders in my collection, and the only clips I leave on my knives are my SOG and Buck models. A great knife, overall!
