The Spec Elite Auto is an automatic knife intended for military and law enforcement. It can be carried conveniently with its reversible low-carry pocket clip.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Spec Elite II Auto is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fastest auto you can get at non-nosebleed rates... The knife is in my right pocket, on safe, removed the clip and have another (Aegis) in the left. You won't be disappointed with the push button on the Elite II, just remember if you're not going to use the safety then keep it clipped to your pocket-lots of people mentioned the concealment factor of the clip so I won't go into that. Best feature for me has to be the size! You can actually get your hand on this thing, it's sturdy, and despite being relatively smooth it won't slip out of your hand. Good jimping, on the top rear of the blade near the grip, with more jimping directly on the grip--ever so slight wiggle when pressing down on the jimping, but it's not got any wiggle when moving side to side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from slick knife , excellent quality Well made, excellent quality & sure to give great service. It fits the name sake of Special Operations Group & wish I had this knife when I was with the 82nd Airborne. Great knife for the money & so sexy too with the handle. Own several SOG products & will be back for more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Won't open unassisted anymore. When I first picked up my Spec Elite ii Auto, I was absolutely in love. Everything about it was amazing. The thin profile literally disappears in my pocket. The power it has when it opens is just pure engineering genius. Now fast forward 2 months. I carry this knife every day, whether on duty at the fire station, or just around town. I have not mistreated this knife in any way shape or form, and it simply won't open all the way anymore. I have to press the release, and then either sling my hand to the side, or manually open the blade, to get it to lock. Very disappointed to say the least. I have owned SOG knives for years, but this was my first SOG auto. I will be making the switch to a Benchmade, or Zero Tolerance in the very near future. I need my knife to open when I need it most. Every time, without fail. SOG falls short on this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent EDC knife... I've had this knife for almost a year now. I carry it everyday. It is a big knife, however the pocket clip allows it to be carried extremely low in the pocket and it is pretty 'thin' bodied so it is very comfortable to carry. The blade is very sharp out of the box and the spring/opening mechanism is very strong and the blade really snaps out with authority. The safety feature is nice to have, however you don't have to use it either. Overall, another great edition to my SOG knives.

    SOG Unconditional Pocket Clip Warranty

    Pocket clips can be broken if they are accidentally caught on foreign objects while wearing. To help prevent such occurrences, SOG recommends that you wear your knife in your front pocket, with the knife inside your pocket. If, for whatever reason, your clip bends or breaks and you would like to receive a replacement, fill out the Clip Request Form, or email/call SOG's warranty department. Damage to a knife handle because a clip has snagged is not considered "normal," and any such damage will be assessed under warranty. Learn more about replacing pocket clips in Knife & Tool Care.
