Flash II - Tanto, Satin, Partially Serrated

Satin      Tanto      Partially Serrated


The Flash II Tanto has got to be one of the coolest knives we've ever seen. Forget its wicked-quick blade access, that it handles like a race car on rails, or that it locks up like Alcatraz. It just looks and feels extraordinary. The Flash family of knives feature SOG Assisted Technology (S.A.T.), which employs a powerful piston lock that is easily released with a sliding button.

Full information


The Flash II Tanto has got to be one of the coolest knives we've ever seen. Forget its wicked-quick blade access, that it handles like a race car on rails, or that it locks up like Alcatraz. It just looks and feels extraordinary. The Flash family of knives feature SOG Assisted Technology (S.A.T.), which employs a powerful piston lock that is easily released with a sliding button.

The Flash II Tanto (Partially Serrated) comes standard with glass-reinforced nylon (GRN) handle and partially serrated edge, Satin finished tanto blade. All Flash knives come standard with SOG's patent pending, reversible bayonet mounted clip that ensures the lowest, most discreet carry possible. We also had the foresight to incorporate an additional safety lock that gives added security when the blade is closed.



    SOG Assisted TechnologyTM

    SOG Assisted Technology (S.A.T.) works through the balance of opposing high-tension coil springs. As you initiate the opening action, the force propelling your blade open becomes greater than the force keeping it closed. The result is a blade that springs open instantly once it is engaged, seemingly on its own.

    Flash II - Tanto, Satin, Partially Serrated is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 192.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome knife but it does have some issues... I loved this knife before just recently loosing it. The good... The opening mechanism is a joy to operate. The knife opens quickly with such a satisfying click. I loved opening this knife every time. This knife also just feels good. It's not too thin, not too light or heavy, it's just right. The neutral... The steel used is very hard and I found was a challenge to sharpen. Some may like this others may not. I tend to like a little softer metal that I can resharpen after every couple of uses. The bad... The clip is nice to use but bends easily. SOG sent me a free replacement and the second one wore out after a few months. When it wears out the knife can catch on things and extract itself from your pocket. I just lost my knife this way and I didn't realize it until it was too late. The locking mechanism works great when used but I never got in the habit of using it. One time the knife was partially open in my pocket and I received a very nasty cut from it. Yes it was my fault but be aware that it could happen to you. The serrations seem to take up a pretty large chunk of the blade. Sometimes it was handy but most times i would have preferred a solid blade. Not that big of a deal though. In summary I loved this knife and am mourning the loss of it. I'm about to break down and buy another one because I miss having it in my pocket every day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sog ftw This knife just speaks to me on every level. The action is amazing as well. Definitely prefer the tanto flash. Super sharp. Aus8 seems harder than most, at least it seems that way when sharpening. I started just hitting with a few strokes on my smoothest stone every few days keeps it performing with ease. I edc this knife. Use it on a daily at work with no issues yet. Super light. Best deep carry clip ive used. Tini coating tough as nails the blade still looks pretty darn new. Love how sog uses the piston lock over the steel liner i don't care for liner locks. Also the safety hasnt been an issue for me. I just keep it off and it hasnt been nudged on in my pocket yet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pocket knife. Probably one of the best pocket knives I have ever owned. It got me out of a jam when the toilet paper dispenser broke and I had to pry it open hahaha (true story). But seriously, the action is still as crisp as the day I bought it. It was a good price. Never had to sharpen the blade. Light weight. No blade play. My favorite knife.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gift! I bought this a month or so ago for a friend's re-enlistment. Someone had bought me a SOG once and I love the quality and how it's held up after daily use. I chose this one due to the easy one-hand open feature, plus the serrated edge and the locking mechanism. I also think it's just a very attractive blade. I had it personalized with my buddy's rank, name, and nickname. He absolutely LOVED it; I'm very happy I went with this knife and I'll definitely be ordering more SOG products for memorable gifts again in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this blade! I purchased this blade several years ago and carry it daily. I have yet to experiance any quality issues or failures. I cannot say enough about this knife. The SAT is awesome and allows me to use the blade with one hand. Holds a great edge and feels solid in the hand. If you are looking for a nice piece, then this is it!
