Description
 

The Flash has got to be one of the coolest knives we've ever seen. Forget its wicked-quick blade access, that it handles like a race car on rails, or that it locks up like Alcatraz. It just looks and feels extraordinary. The Flash family of knives feature SOG Assisted Technology (S.A.T.), which employs a powerful piston lock that is easily released with a sliding button.

The Flash I (Straight edge) comes with glass-reinforced nylon (GRN) handle and straight edge, Satin finished blade. All Flash knives come standard with SOG's patent pending, reversible bayonet mounted clip that ensures the lowest, most discreet carry possible. We also had the foresight to incorporate an additional safety lock that gives added security when the blade is closed.

    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.

Flash I is rated 4.6923 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great knife I bought this about a month ago and it has worked well. I like the assisted open feature. Great service and timely shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great EDC Knife I've had one for almost a year now and just love it. Right size, quick, easy opening, smaller platform for more hand space into the pocket with a blade long enough for any job I have for it. I just really like this knife, in fact, so much that I'm buying another one for "just in case" I lose the one I have now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Looked at a lot of knives that would met specific government size regulations; this had the features I was looking for that it's "big brothers" have, but where the larger knives are illegal in government facilites. Excellent choice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great knife! This is the third flash I have purchased. The third because I have lost the other two. I use it everyday and don't want to be without one. I like everything about it from the bayonet clip to the serrated blade. It sets deep in my pocket but is easy to remove. The black plastic body looks cool and is not slippery even when my hands are wet and muddy. The drop point blade with the serrated edge allows me to remove splinters and sharpen my pencil. The side lock is very easy to use to unlock the blade and slide it back into my pocket while the safety lock keeps it from opening in my pocket. For me the size is perfect not too big to be bulky in my pocket but large enough to cut roofing paper and straw waddles. Great knife, I show off the open assist all the time. Only drawback is the bayonet clip is thin on top and cracks and breaks over time. But that's an easy replacement with SOG. I sent it in and SOG replaced it for NO CHARGE! You can't beat that. Great knife!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SOG Flash I have had this knife for 7 years. One of the most dependable, strong, light, and fast tools I use. Worth it's weight in gold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, Compact, Durable! Another great product from SOG - I have seriously abused this little guy and it keeps coming back for more. I purchased this knife as an addition to my trauma pack and for the first couple of weeks it saw no action - but then when I needed it the first time it never sat idle again. the blade has retained its edge well, the locking mechanism is very solid and it opens very easily - this guy fights above its weight class!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent everyday carry... I bought this a few months ago and have carried it everyday since. This is a very light weight knife that is tough as nails. Great knife, would highly recommend.

    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.
