Vulcan

Satin      Clip Point      Straight

VL-01

Built upon the M61 Vulcan’s reputation of speed, power, and versatility, the SOG Vulcan is also formidable with a powerful strength of construction. There is nothing weak about the Vulcan. For instance, our patented Arc-Lock™ can hold over 1000 lbs. of force. The full steel liners encased in glass reinforced nylon (GRN) handles give the knife rigidity and durability.

Description

Since 1959, the M61 Vulcan and its derivatives is a 20mm 6-barrel Gatling-style rotary cannon that has been in service in many United States military aircraft through several wars. It fires standard M50 ammunition at 6,000 rounds per minute and is integral part of the armament of modern fighters such as the F-15, F-18, and F-16.

Built upon the M61 Vulcan’s reputation of speed, power, and versatility, the SOG Vulcan is also formidable with a powerful strength of construction. There is nothing weak about the Vulcan. For instance, our patented Arc-Lock™ can hold over 1000 lbs. of force. The full steel liners encased in glass reinforced nylon (GRN) handles give the knife rigidity and durability. The blade is a full .160" thick with drop point shape and includes a double thumb stud and kick for quick, ambidextrous deployment and use. Combining the usability and construction of the knife with a durable VG-10 stainless steel blade make this folder a great addition to the Vulcan name.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Vulcan is rated 4.7826 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tactical Knife "The Short Lightsaber" I've had this knife for about 4 months now and I can't begin to say enough good things about it. The look, the feel, the weight, the cutting power..., everything about owning this knife has been a fun experience. This is the most beautiful blade I have ever seen on a knife and I personally now keep it razor sharp and as a personal defense backup to my Glock 43. For everyday cutting I use both a Buck 110 for more prying/leverage type cuts and a Spyderco Paramilitary 2 for finer cuts. My Vulcan Tanto however sits in my right pocket no matter where I go sharp and ready for any trouble that crosses my path. No matter how you use this knife you will be impressed, I highly recommend you pick one up for yourself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vulcan - Pon Farr I originally went to the SOG store in Lynnwood looking to purchase a different folder. After speaking with the knowledgeable sales person, I agreed to go with his suggestion and purchased the Vulcan. I have had many different knives as an every day carry and this by far is the best one. My opinion hasn't changed in the last year of having it. Its a great knife!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous and effective I had been carrying a spring assisted knife for a while as my edc. I thought this knife was beautiful (I had a little bit of a crush on it), so I thought I'd give it a try. Best decision ever. This knife is super low profile, making it perfect for EDC. Also, it's ergonomic and comfortable, with a blade factory sharp enough to shave a mountain goat. And compared to my spring assist? The action is so smooth, that with just five minutes of practice I could open this knife one handed faster than my old spring. Expensive? Yes. Worth the money? Every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all purpose knife I've had this knife for over a year. It still surprises me how versatile this blade can be and how sharp it stays through all the abuse it goes through. I highly recommend this knife for anyone looking for a mid price all purpose knife.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Knife - Didn't get engraving as requested I purchased this product for my son to replace his that he lost while in Korea. We both had our last name engraved on our original Vulcan and when I requested it for his replacement, I was charged, but it came without anything on it - very disappointed
