Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great knife Has the high quality of a SOG product and never had any problems as my every day carry knife for 5 years until now. But with the life time warranty I'm not concerned .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite knife ever! I have owned this knife for four years, used it almost every day during that time. It's still sharp, looks great, very few signs of wear. I did recently have the spring load go out. The nice thing about lifetime warranty is that I was able to mail the knife back to the company, and within a few days, got my same knife back all fixed and working great! Thank you, SOG, for making a great product and standing behind it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marvelous !!! I received my ST-02 in just a few days after ordering. It is more lovely in person than the pictures and videos could express. The design, fit and finish, attention to detail are first rate. The opening rate is fast and lockup solid. I have had this knife for almost 1 year and noticed no loosening of any component of the knife. Be sure to have a firm grip on the scales when opening this knife, as the blade has some weight, multiplied by fast opening equals a good kick. The knife could fly out of your hand if not gripped in a positive manner. All good qualities of a stout folding edged weapon. I appreciate all aspects provided by the safety. The blade is very sharp and has yet to need sharpening. I really like this knife. If you don't like this knife because of the blade type/ handle/ length, etc, keep shopping SOG, because they probably have something in a really good automatic for you.

    SOG Unconditional Pocket Clip Warranty

    Pocket clips can be broken if they are accidentally caught on foreign objects while wearing. To help prevent such occurrences, SOG recommends that you wear your knife in your front pocket, with the knife inside your pocket. If, for whatever reason, your clip bends or breaks and you would like to receive a replacement, fill out the Clip Request Form, or email/call SOG's warranty department. 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.
