Description
 

Not often are we able to bring you what we feel is so new, so functional, and so outside the box that it is a game changer! Enter: BladeLight. It's patent pending technology employs 6 LEDs molded into the GRN handle on either side of the knife blade, providing shadowless light when cutting or flashlight capability (while sheathed or closed). Of course the knives can still be used without turning on the LEDs. Powered by standard alkaline batteries, state of the art push button switches/circuitry and an IPX-7 rating for water resistance to full immersion it's easy to see the BladeLight is no amateur. When night is upon you, no longer will you be juggling a light in one hand and knife in the other. The clip point blade folds into a sleek molded GRN handle with liner lock. Twin AAA batteries provide 34-37 Lumens of bright white light.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

BladeLight Folder is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOG quality with the bonus of strong flashlight I noticed over the years I've kept a 1-aa led light sheathed on my work clothes belt and kept a folder in one front pocket; now I only have to carry one thing that I can trust to do both duties as well as either single one tool (a Jetbeam light and a SOG Flash). Light is single level though (no low power mode or flashing mode) but replacement of 2-aaa cells was made easy and secure (wish there was a rotate to lock off position though).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but expected better This is my 2nd purchase of the SOG BladeLight Folder. It seems to me that the blades purchased last year were much better steel and kept a sharp edge. But alas I was so pleased last year that I ended up making gifts of those original purchases. Now I just purchased two more BladeLight Folders. The one I now carry did not come with the sharpest edge, and I have not been able to keep an edge with careful sharpening. I think it is inferior steel ..... just an average knife with a cool flashlight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic tool as a medic, i am always looking for the best tools to keep with me on the job. as an engineer, i keep an eye out for quality design. this knife is a great addition to my cache of work toys. at 4 oz, it's a little heavy, but the sheath is durable, and the knife actually has a nice heft. the grip is slightly rubberized to make it even more comfortable. the flashlight consists of 6 leds split by the blade when it is locked open. the on/off button is on the rear (doesn't interfere with sheath withdrawal), and requires a firm press to activate (preventing accidental battery drain, but as it only requires 2 aa batteries, that's not too bad of a problem). i think the lanyard hole is ridiculous for a knife of this mass. my wish to sog: please develop a mini version of this knife. one aaa battery, 4 led, correspondingly shorter blade, with the twitch assisted-opening mechanism and the sog clip. this mini bladelight would be perfect for edc! btw-i like the green led knife too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great blade/flashlight combo i love this knife. the blade is utilitarian. it flips out and secures with a nice click. the handle is slightly rubberized, and its size and heft feels secure in your hand. the button for the flashlight requires a firm push, which is good considering the knife comes in a sheath. the six leds are very bright and placed on the handle on either side of the blade edge. this leads to a handy knife/flashlight combo that i have been searching for. my only suggestion is that sog offer a smaller-sized version: one aaa battery/4 led/3-in blade/with the sog clip that i love. --susan the medic

    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.
