Customer Ratings & Reviews

Flashback - Tanto - Black TiNi is rated 4.8214 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Top Quality Another nice knife in the SOG line but this one is too hard to open. The thumb stud is not in the perfect balance spot for the spring assist to be of any help or ? It just isnt easy to open like all the other designs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size knife for every day carry. I have owned this knife for probably close to a year now. I have never carried a knife before and have discovered how convenient it is to carry one. This knife is easy to use and is the perfect size for your pocket..not too small or not too large. I'm a 60 year old woman and I love my SOG!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Knife I bought this knife a while back to replace my last SOG that reached the end of its life. I purchased this knife thanks to a tip from a friend, and let me tell you, it was worth it. This knife is built like a tank, the grip was extremely durable, the ergonomics for me were near perfect and the blade held its edge throughout all the torture I put it through. The only problem I ever had was that the safety switch to allow the knife to open started to stick. This was the only problem I ever had, and was brought on by my own actions. Overall, it was an amazing tool that I carried for about two years and it never let me down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 1st SOG After using some very inexpensive knives for EDC, I got hooked on carrying a knife and wanted to see the difference a quality knife would make. I reviewed dozens of knives on videos and blogs, learned about different steel used, and what features were important to me. This knife eventually moved to my top choice. Wow... what a difference right out of the box. Very sharp blade with an excellent grip for hand and thumb placement when using. Opening quickly is an understatement. I was very surprised on how light this 3.5" knife is compared to other knives the same size. One of the important features I want in an EDC knife is a pocket knife concealment. SOG knives seem to excel in this department and this was a big factor for me when comparing knife manufacturers. I look forward to making another purchase down the road and SOG will be my first choice when looking and should by yours as well.
