Rated 5 out of 5 by from Twitch Xl all day everyday This knife is the perfect everyday carry. It's the perfect everything or anything carry. I have a couple. One I don't leave the house without, the other is in my hiking/ camping bag(gear). This knife is large without being bulky, unnecessary, or problematic. The twitch Xl feels great in my hands, I am 6'5" and have fairly large hands, the twitch Xl is easily operated with one hand or two. The drop point blade is grade for all applications and retains its sharp edge like a dream. The black finish is slick, and no need to worry about damaging it while sharpening because the crew at SOG can sharpen it for you. Lastly, I consider myself lucky to live in the PNW near these guys, their showroom is great and they have fantastic customer service... I even take my buddies there to check it out. It's really nice to get to see their catalog of knives in front of you and be able to get a feel of the blade before purchasing... If you don't have that luxury though, again I have big hands and the twitch Xl feels great, so if you have smaller hands, consider either the twitch, or twitch 2, whichever is smaller . Thank you SOG... <3 Jake b

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never without it! This little knife is a workhorse tool that I use for a hundred tasks. The assisted open/to bolster design is marvelous and makes it an ambidextrous one handed cinch. Holds an edge well. Keep it clean and it will work forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick, clean, and classy I bought one for myself. It's my daily carry and money clip. It opens very easy with a push. Because of the size and easy open I got my Dad one for Fathers Day. My only complaint is the finish peels when you clean it with oils and such. I removed the finish and gave it an oil coat. Now it looks better and better grip too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great EDC that looks as good as it performs I carry this knife with me everywhere I go. It's got a great blade, and the assisted opening is perfect for one-hand operations. It's small enough to go unnoticed even in more "formal" settings but always gets the job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be careful with this one, it's a "gateway" knife.. I've had quite a few good knives since I was a kid. Some bone handled Case pocketknives, some Bucks'. Quite a few Gerber's, but I didn't know knives like these were readily available or how many states had changed the laws on semi-autos, autos and even OTF's! I bought a Twitch II at Lowe's, then I had to have the Rosewood handled one just like it. Now I have to have some autos, and the numbers don't look so big anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Lightweight Folder Love this knife. It holds an edge great and is just the right size to carry even when wearing dress clothes.. It opens like lightning and is about indestructible. If you don't have one, you need one.
