Rated 3 out of 5 by from I LOVE this knife, but... I own several SOG knives and this is the one I carry most. It's fast, it's sharp and feels good in my hand. The reason it's only getting 3 stars is because the spring broke after about a year. I'm not SWAT, I'm not SOF and I'm not an "operator". I'm just a country boy who needs to cut stuff occasionally and like it for PPE. I'm sitting on my couch the other night, I press the button and, *pop*, the knife is now non-functioning. The good news is that I'll send it back to SOG and they'll fix it for me for free. I just wish I didn't have to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyday carry for almost three years! I have carried this knife for almost threes years now and it has more than paid for itself. I am not a delicate take care of my tools type person and this knife has stood the test of time and use. SOG has become my go to brand for my everyday carry as well as a staple in my hunt and camp kits.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from my experience with my sog-tac tanto automatic knife This is a very great knife to own! i'm very happy with it. at the press of a button, the knife opens up very quickly. i trust the knife being in its locked position from ACCIDENTALLY closing. its locks up solid and DOESN'T unlock until the button is pressed. the only issues i have with this knife is the internal spring mechanism broke on me after frequently opening my knife many times. the pocket clip broke also. but after i told the reps at sog, they replied back right away and said they'll replace the spring and pocket for me. so overall this is a very great tactical knife. STURDY and strong. it doesnt feel like a cheap knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic EDC KNIFe Use this on a daily basis and feel naked leaving home without it. Comes in at under four ounces and deploys very quickly especially after light oiling. clip has held up both when attached to uniform and law enforcement belt. although a bit pricey compared to other autos, very happy with this purchase.

    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.
