Customer Ratings & Reviews

Flashback is rated 4.8636 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 1st SOG After using some very inexpensive knives for EDC, I got hooked on carrying a knife and wanted to see the difference a quality knife would make. I reviewed dozens of knives on videos and blogs, learned about different steel used, and what features were important to me. This knife eventually moved to my top choice. Wow... what a difference right out of the box. Very sharp blade with an excellent grip for hand and thumb placement when using. Opening quickly is an understatement. I was very surprised on how light this 3.5" knife is compared to other knives the same size. One of the important features I want in an EDC knife is a pocket knife concealment. SOG knives seem to excel in this department and this was a big factor for me when comparing knife manufacturers. I look forward to making another purchase down the road and SOG will be my first choice when looking and should by yours as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast little blade! I have been using this knofe for several months now. It is really light, and really fast to deploy. The lock up is solid and the AUS 8 steel was a great choice from SOG. I really love this blade and highly recommend it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent EDC This knife is my EDC. Amazing blade. I haven't had any major issues with it, however the spring in mine has slightly rusted; I've had if for almost 2 years and been on many an adventure with it, all types of weathers and terrains. I'd give it a 10/10, overall. I'd definitely recommend this knife to anyone, especially if you are a fan of a fast tanto.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from didnt get engravement I paid for. I bought this knife and although I was happy with the knife I didnt get the engravement I paid for on my unit. Called Customer Service and never got a return call so Im quite disappointed...and ripped off. Hoping they answer my next call and correct the mistake made.

    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.
