Full information


Take the original SlimJim design and add a tanto blade, and you've got the SlimJim Tanto. Most effective for piercing - or rescue - this handle is formed from a single piece of steel, and it features SOG Assisted Technology (S.A.T.), making opening swift and smooth. One of the surest knives on the market, it exists at the intersection of simplicity and minimalism, without compromising a lick of effectiveness. Really, it's innovation in your hand.



    SOG Assisted TechnologyTM

    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 blade on the market Ive had this for a little over a year and it is the best pocket knife ive ever owned. Its light and not bulky at all so you can have it in everything from 5.11 tdu pants to basketball shorts. The blade stays sharp and can take a lot of abuse. It is quick to deploy and when you slide the lock it feels as sturdy as a fixed blade. I love this knife to death ive used it for everything from skinning squirrels, opening boxes, construction work, to removing splinters and making feather sticks for fire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great knife I have gone through a lot of pocket knifes and this one is the best by far. Dit in pockets well and is almost unnoticed. Keeps a good edge as well. Only thing I don't like is the blade lock. It great to hold blade open but can slide down in the way when folded and you can not open blade. I just pop the safety off . I want to make sure nothing get in my way too open blade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great SOG! Great Warrenty! Originally bought this knife a few months ago and immediately it became my EDC knife. But when the knife malfunctioned and broke, I sent it back to SOG and they replaced it with a brand new one! Really deserves the reputation for the thinnest assisted knife in the world. Definitely one of my favorite knives!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slimjim excellence I've had this knife for about a year I use it constantly.I've never found any situations that my slimjim tanto has not performed beyond expectations wether field dressing deer,turkey or around the farm tasks.The ease to which it opens and the way it holds an edge Through some of the most grueling challenges is quite astounding.Quite frankly I'd say it's my American Express card I won't leave the house without it.
