Last year, SOG introduced its Flashback to rave reviews. The larger Flashback captured various awards and the Mini could, too, for packing so much in such a small package. Yes, the Mini is a smaller choice, but, like its bigger and older brother, it still utilizes SOG's most advanced version of patented Assisted Technology. The 3-inch blade is made of durable AUS-8 stainless steel while its low profile, light weight, stylish look and a reversible pocket clip make it a perfect choice for everyday carry.

    SOG Assisted Technology

    SOG Assisted Technology

    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.


Customer Ratings & Reviews

FlashBack Mini is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid EDC I have had this knife for a little over 6 mos. Mine was very sharp out of the box. I can manipulate and open this blade one handed, but it does take some effort. I wish the thumb knob that you use to open the blade was a good bit more towards the center of the blade than it is. Maybe it's just my big hands. Still a part of my EDC and always good quality with SOG.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excelent Knife....after some adjustments I've had this knife for a little over a year now. When I first got it I was a bit concerned because the action was very stiff, pushing on the thumb studs was actually painful after a few openings. The lock was also fairly stiff once the knife was open making it difficult if not a bit dangerous to close. After lubricating all of the joints and simply opening and closing the knife for about a month the action was much smoother and the lock loosened up enough that I could easily disengage it with one hand. The knife wasn't razor sharp out of the box but it wasn't difficult to sharpen and holds an edge very well as one would expect with a SOG. I saw some complaints about the pocket clip that I couldn't help but laugh at, it is very simple to adjust the tension by simply bending the clip slightly, just don't over do it. If the action had been a bit smoother out of the box this would have been 5 stars for me but if after taking some time to work the knife it's now part of my EDC.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the quality I expect from SOG. I really didn't want to give this knife a 2 star review but, I had to. It did not come sharp out of the box, one star lost, I had to touch up the blade. The blade lockup is quite loose, second star lost, I did tighten the pivot screw as much as I could and it did help but, still not solid. The blade is so hard to open and close that I had to work it out to loosen it up. This knife was meant for my wife to keep in her car, it was so stiff that she was not able to operate it without significant effort and a sore thumb, third star lost. I also have to add that the pocket clip was so stiff that it is really difficult to remove from the pocket. In my opinion, an assisted opening should be fast. the Flashback Mini takes so much effort to pull from pocket and struggle to flip open that it slows the process down so much that it has made a home in the drawer with the rest of the disappointments.

    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.
