X-Ray Vison

Bead Blasted      Tanto      Partially Serrated

XV71

Two words that best describe the X-Ray Vision series are "tactical" and "practical". This combo-edged folder features the same blade design as the SOG Vision like using high-end VG-10 steel, but retails at half the price.

Description

Created for optimal performance and value, the X-Ray Vision series are the newest members of this high-tech family of folding knives. This knife is further enhanced with our revolutionary Arc-Lock™ for fast-access and full "lockup." The X-Ray Vision series keeps a low profile with its bead blasted blade finish and black glass-reinforced nylon (GRN) handle to keep it lightweight and comfortable to hold and carry. A reversible low-carry pocket clip allows both righties and lefties to carry the X-Ray Vision conveniently in pocket, pack, or on vest, belt, or jacket.

    X-Ray Vison is rated 4.375 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all around EDC I like this knife so well that I've bought 3 more to give to my friends and family,

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for self defense 10-Wolf says no good for self defense. Believe me I know. I did fight to the death with a vicious dog pack of Dogo Argentino. Yes, it helped to save my life, but didn't do the job as it should have. Not the shape of blade you want when it comes to hand-to-hand combat. Could have done better with a shank. This knife is only good for stabbing, no good for slashing. Great for a tool, good tough tip and all that, but for self defense, not the style you want. I found out the hard way. I am sorry SOG, but I think I am done with you. There are some really nice products, but none good for self defense. I love the fat cat and tom cat, very good knives and very capable of self defense, but not going to do anyone any good if the sheath falls off your belt in a scuffle. Too bad the fat cat and tom cat are not available with pocket clip.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great everyday carry knife! This is my 2nd.. I lost the first one, and I missed it. Very solid lock-up, great grip, very rugged and holds an edge well. Gona have to keep this one on a short leash!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The PERFECT every day carry knife! This is the perfect every day carry knife! I have used this knife daily for the past seven yaers. It keeps a great edge, opens and handles easily and the lock is the safest, strongest and easiest to control of any I have ever used. It's a very strong knife, comfortable in the hand and useful as a both a tool and, if necessary, can perform as an intimidating defensive weapon. My go-to knife, the best folding knife I have ever carried.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Arc-lock I use this knife as an every day tool. This knife is wonderful. I farm and own a resturant. I use this knife reguraly every day. So far the only thing I don't like is the belt clip, it is very flimsy. It is not that big of an ordeal to fix, but I have to fix it weekly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One TOUGH knife I bought this knife many years ago at a gun show. Of all my EDC knives, this one finds its way into my pocket more often than any. I'm not sure what the blade steel is (bought it in 2000), but gave it it's very first sharpening last month. This blade takes a BEAUTIFUL edge! For as long as I've had this blade, and all the work I've done with it (EDC tasks mostly), I find no blade play, still locks into place solid, blade travel is silky smooth. My ONLY complaint is with the clip. I've had to bend it back into shape a few times. Other than that... Outstanding Piece!
