X-Ray Vison

Bead Blasted      Tanto      Partially Serrated

XV71

Two words that best describe the X-Ray Vision series are "tactical" and "practical". This combo-edged folder features the same blade design as the SOG Vision like using high-end VG-10 steel, but retails at half the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The PERFECT every day carry knife! This is the perfect every day carry knife! I have used this knife daily for the past seven yaers. It keeps a great edge, opens and handles easily and the lock is the safest, strongest and easiest to control of any I have ever used. It's a very strong knife, comfortable in the hand and useful as a both a tool and, if necessary, can perform as an intimidating defensive weapon. My go-to knife, the best folding knife I have ever carried.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Arc-lock I use this knife as an every day tool. This knife is wonderful. I farm and own a resturant. I use this knife reguraly every day. So far the only thing I don't like is the belt clip, it is very flimsy. It is not that big of an ordeal to fix, but I have to fix it weekly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One TOUGH knife I bought this knife many years ago at a gun show. Of all my EDC knives, this one finds its way into my pocket more often than any. I'm not sure what the blade steel is (bought it in 2000), but gave it it's very first sharpening last month. This blade takes a BEAUTIFUL edge! For as long as I've had this blade, and all the work I've done with it (EDC tasks mostly), I find no blade play, still locks into place solid, blade travel is silky smooth. My ONLY complaint is with the clip. I've had to bend it back into shape a few times. Other than that... Outstanding Piece!
