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.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Flash I is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Pocket Knife I had this knife for many years, I took it everywhere with me. The blade stayed sharp and was very effective and useful. Only now when I had to throw it away in the airport did I stop using it. This is a great buy, worth every dollar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The gift that keeps on giving This knife was a birthday present from my girlfriend, six years later we got married! Other than her this knife has been my constant companion. One handed opening is a joy in the back woods of Minnesota and it takes an edge like few other knives I own, best gift I've ever gotten!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy I bought this unsure of size. Turned out to be PERFECT! I use it for opening general mail. My hands are small and this size is perfect for me, as other knives run way too big for my hands! I have never had to sharpen this since I received her a couple of months ago. Buy this knife, You will be glad you did! Part of my EDC!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from for me this is the perfect knife. This is an absolutely great knife. Perfectly reliable, hard-wearing, beautiful action (a pleasure to use), discreet small size (and for practical purposes this blade is almost always all you need), ideal point, holds an edge and is easy to sharpen. Had mine now for 3 or 4 years and despite heavy usage it was perfect. Only on the site today to look for an identical replacement - for me this is the perfect knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic small knife While shopping for a pocket knife this one just jumped out at me. One-handed opening is smooth as silk, and for its size it feels great in your hand. I don't know much about metallurgy, but the blade is easily sharpened and takes a great edge. ONe of the best features is the reversable clip that allows the knife to sit lower in your pocket yet is easy to pull out. The worst feature is the safety lock that keeps locking the blade closed on its own -- making one-handed operation difficult. I Super Glued the safety lock open and the knife has never opened in my pocket on its own. Thinking about upgrading to the Flash II, otherwise this is a fantastic small knife, and I looked at a lot of 'em.

    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.
