A folding version of the Pentagon, the Pentagon Elite has all the benefits of its big brother as well as a bead blasted blade that reduces reflection. The stainless steel blade offers the instant choice between a serrated or beveled edge, giving you the best of both worlds for cutting virtually any material. Extremely lightweight, the Pentagon Elite features a glass-reinforced GRN handle with stainless steel liners that provides sensational feel and balance. Tested at over 1000 lbs. of force at the lock, the Arc-Lock is SOG’s strongest lock. It can be carried conveniently with its reversible low-carry pocket clip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Standard One of the finest production folder I have ever used. The Pentagon Elite II has met every challenge I have encountered. I originally purchased it as a backup, but now it is my primary EDC. It offers me a tremendous advantage in the ability to deploy instantly but still retain a covert non aggressive demeanor. I can ensure my safety and my families safety without alerting or frightening others around me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Folder I love the size and durability. I was even left without a kitchen knife on a recent business trip and had to use it to cook with. It sliced up a pork roast and head of cabbage like butter! I like it so much I bought a second one just in case I lose this one and they stop making it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a bad knife, but too expensive I had this knife for a while, but stopped carrying it because the edge retention was rather poor and I kept getting the clip caught on random things around me. I wanted more from this thing for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk I bought one of these shortly after getting out of the Navy and it is the worst knife I've ever used. The edge retention is poor the handle is minimal. Overall I would not recommend this knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NO CONTEST THIS IS YET ANOTHER GREAT ENTRY FROM SOG. i ALSO CARRY THE M37 AND S37. aLL GREAT KNIVES BUT THIS ONE IS ALWAYS ON ME. I USE IT FOR EVERYTHING AND AS WITH ANY SOG i'VE EVER USED, IT NEVER FAILS. eVEN HAD IT ACCIDENTLY FALL FROM ABOUT SIX FEET ONTO A TILE FLOOR EMBEDDING THE TIP IN THE GROUT. TOOK NOTHING MORE THAN A TOUCH UP WITH THE STONE AND TIP LOOKS UNTOUCHED. IT ALSO SPENDS A LOT OF TIME DIVING. FRESH WATER AND SALT. NOT THE MOST RUST RESISTANT STEEL IN SALT WATER BUT NOTHING A LITTLE CLEANING AND OILING HASN'T TAKEN CARE OF. IT'S AT MY SIDE NOW AND I'M PRETTY CERTAIN IT WILL BE AT MY SIDE WHEN I LEAVE THIS WORLD. THANK YOU SOG.

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.
