VG-10 Upgrade

11.15.2007 / By SOG Marketing / In Knife Info, Folding, SOG News

We have been working on this for a couple months and I am happy to finally announce that almost all of our Arc-Lock knives are now being produced with VG-10 blades. This now includes the X-Ray Vision, Vision, Mini X-Ray Vision, Pentagon Elite I and II, Spec Elite I. Also, this was done with out increasing the cost of these knives. If you have been holding off on buying one of these knives, you no longer have an excuse. We were also able to do this with out raising prices.

The blades are stamped with VG-10 and should be showing up in stores any day now.

    Gah. Now I regret buying my X ray vision just a while ago. Should've waited for the VG 10 ones.

    Yea, me too. I just purchased a Pentagon Elite I a few weeks ago. Great knife...but I would have loved to have the VG-10 blade.

    I am considering the SOG Trident, however, I am wondering if that line will also go VG10 before too long?

  • SOG Administrator - 12 . 17 . 2007

    The SOG Trident is going to stay AUS-8 for the foreseeable future.

    How can i tell if the advertised VG-10 Pentagon Elite I just recently bought is in fact VG-10?
    Mine came in the SOG white box with a Cully company logo #37369 sku# 29857 14151...

    One of the Vulcan series is under my consideration and I am looking for input re. the integrity of the Arc-Lock. Has anyone tested this system to destruction? Also, I am trying to understand the use and need for a tanto grind blade and the advantages of said blade compared to other typical grinds and profiles. I am really tending toward the Vulcan tanto for the sake of the blade steel. What are the advantages of the laminate compared to VG-10...

    Thank you,

    The SOG Pentagon/Spec Elite, Always the Bride's maid, never the Bride.
    When the Pentagon was the only blade style available I said "If only it had a drop point blade I'd get one".
    A drop (or clip point) blade was made available called the Spec Elite. "Well if it was available in something a little better than AUS 8 I'd buy one" I said.
    So some years pass by, I realized how I genuinely use my Zytel, FRN, GRP or what ever the stuff is called. When I have a Gucci blade I tend to baby it but gimmie a zytel handle and I don't care when it bounces and skips across the anti slip coating on the deck of a ship. The stuff is incredible tough so I guess you can say I'm won over.
    The Spec Elite 1 now made available with VG 10 for me is pretty much what I have been looking for in a knife. I have run out of "If only's" And I am happy to say I am now an owner of such a knife.
