We have a saying that the best knife is the one that you have with you! Always be prepared with the new Key knife. This is the first lockback of its kind. Open up your awareness. We love the fact that sometimes we wish we had a knife to clean our fingers, cut a rope, open a box, sever a thread. Now we do…. always. Our new key knife just might save the day, unless of course you lock it in the trunk.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what you would expect in a SOG knife I wanted a small key chain sized knife for light duty use at work. I had never heard of SOG before I purchased a cheap knockoff of this knife on amazon. After receiving it, I couldn't believe anyone would consider it a usable knife. So, I looked up the website and found out that SOG is actual quality, and that I had been ripped off by some Chinese seller. I bought the REAL key knife directly from the website and it exceeded my expectations. Snappy fold and unfold, secure blade lock with zero play, straight as an arrow, and sharp as heck. It is well worth the money for a very compact, quality, and usable knife. Perfect!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practicality to the extreme I have had this SOG Key Knife for 10 months now and it has earned a permanent place in my pocket. It's great for everyday home and work use, as I open it up at least a dozen times a day. It's built solidly and feels every bit as high quality as every other SOG product. Do yourself a favor and get one for every key ring you have so that you don't go anywhere without it.
