    SOG Assisted Technology

    SOG Assisted Technology

    SOG Assisted Technology (S.A.T.) works through the balance of opposing high-tension coil springs. As you initiate the opening action, the force propelling your blade open becomes greater than the force keeping it closed. The result is a blade that springs open instantly once it is engaged, seemingly on its own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best EDC for office, outings, and house. I've had my Twitch XL for I think 10 years now and it's my EDC, always with me. I've given it as a gift. The handle being AL, has a few nicks in it from my dropping it, but the blade looks new. It does require a bit more cleaning as the locking mechanism will pick up pocket lint and jam but that takes years of neglect. The locking mechanism isn't quite as strong as the ARC lock but it does the job, and is still pretty easy to release.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My EDC folder hands down I have owned the Twitch XL for half a year now, and have had it in my right pocket almost every single day of this past half year. What drew me to the knife in the first place was its size. A friend of mine had owned a SOG flash which I always admired but felt it would take up to much space in my pocket or at least cause pulling things out of my pocket to become a challenge . But being 6'7" my big hands need a handle that actually fits comfortably in my hand without its finger guard and other features squishing my index and or pinky finger. But being big isnt an issue for the Twitch XL, its thin frame takes up no room in your pocket, espically if you keep it clipped to ur pocket so it stays flats against the inside of the pocket. It's reinforced frame allows it to stay thing and long without losing strength. After 6 months there is still no play in the blade when its deployed and locked, which suprised me with it being an assisted opener. Speaking of which, the spring assist is great on this knife. While it takes a little more pressure than im used to, it still opens easy and deadly fast. And once its locked in, you can count that it will stay that way. To keep accidents from happening due to the blade being released in your pocket, it has a built in safety switch just below the lockback release. simply slide it up or down to lock or unlock. The pant clip can be swiched to the knives other side for either left or right carrying. It also has the clip so the blade tip points down, so you can pull the knife out and let the blade out and not need to readjust the knife in ur hand, making not only every day task easier, but if you need it for self defensem you know you can have it in hand with blade out and locked in the blink of an eye.
