Full information


People with big and small hands will find the Visionary II a pleasure to hold and carry. It has a finely textured glass-reinforced nylon (GRN) handle that is both lightweight and ergonomic. Its 3.75-inch blade with slightly curved straight edge opens quickly and smoothly via SOG's Arc-Lock™. The high-quality VG-10 stainless steel blade can be used daily while maintaining durability. Its size and weight make the Visionary II a great tactical performance folder.



    The Arc-LockTM

    With its ambidexterity - and all the other attributes knife enthusiasts so relentlessly seek - the Arc-Lock might just be the perfect lock.

    Tested at over 1000 lbs. of force (measured at the lock), far surpassing conventional lock strength.

    Lightning-quick, one-handed opening and closing capability.

    Spring-action securely retains blade closed, keeping fingers safely clear while unlocking.

    Self-adjusting over time and easily cleaned for long-term optimal performance.



    VG-10 is well-known high-end Japanese steel and is considered premium. It contains vanadium which is known for its toughness. The steel is specially designed for high-quality blades used in cutlery. VG-10 can be sharpened to a fine edge that is very durable. It can maintain a hardness of Rc 60 without becoming brittle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits the hand like a glove Opens easy, does the job and is like an extension of the hand with a blade. I highly recommend it. I have used gor over a year and remains sharp and smooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Visionary II The Visionary II has been my every day carry for many years. It has performed flawlessly since day one. It is a no frills knife and perfect for my use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great knife. I almost didn't buy this because it was kind of expensive but looked good and I heard good things about the knife. This knife is a great size and feels lighter then the weight listed. The lock is excellent, very smooth opening and closing the blade and can be use on handed. The knife came sharp and the deep carry clip is excellent for allowing the knife to be carried discreetly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Visionary II This is a fantastic knife. The action is brilliant and you can close with one hand. The blade is very sharp. I have several kitchen knives made from the same alloy and it makes for a great knife. My only complaint is that that the clip has bent severely after minimal use and I am considering a return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS KNIFE !!! I have carried this knife every day for years and it has stood up well, even though it has not been pampered. I use this knife as a tool regularly. The blade holds an edge well, the handle is the perfect size and thickness and, as others have said, the pocket clip is great. Very smooth blade opening and closing. I strongly recommend this knife, especially if you only own one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Every Day Carry Having owned this knife for a number of years, It is my favorite every day carry. It is a smaller style knife, but big enough for most jobs without being cumbersome. The pocket clip is the best design that SOG has made in my opinion and the arc lock makes it a safe operator. I own man knives that I carry from time to time, however, I always come back to this one. I know I have mentioned size already, but the other thing worthy to note it the thickness: It is a perfect balance between slim and rugged, making it the perfect pocket sized carry knife.
