Full information


Just by opening this knife, you’ll know how it got its name. The Quake XL is one of our largest folding knives. With that, it is powered by our SAT 2 (SOG Assisted Technology) that propels the blade open with just a push of a thumb. Instead of a thumb stud, the cross guard folds in when closing the knife and is used as the lever to assist with the opening motion. Combined with a thick dual-tone VG-10 blade, forged aluminum handles, full length stainless steel liners, the Quake XL is one formidable knife that packs a punch.



    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.


    VG-10 Stainless Steel

    VG-10 is well-known high-end Japanese steel and is considered premium. It contains vanadium which is known for its toughness. The steel is specially designed for high-quality blades used in cutlery. VG-10 can be sharpened to a fine edge that is very durable. It can maintain a hardness of Rc 60 without becoming brittle.

    Quake XL is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's big, but not too big! I bought this knife almost a year a go when it first came onto the scene after watching some of the SHOT show coverage of it. While other reviewers have complained about the tension of opening the blade, it does get better the more often you use it and after a month or so it becomes perfect. This has been my EDC since purchase and while it's a big knife it's not too big to carry everyday and is very intimidating should you need it to be. I have since purchased a second as I misplaced mine somewhere yesterday. (That's how much I LOVE this guy, I couldn't stand not having it in my pocket, even for a day.) As for keeping it sharp, the VG10 steel hold an edge surprisingly well and with regular maintenance the Quake XL should last longer than you will. The only negative I had about it was that there was a small amount of play when the blade is locked into place, seemingly more than there should be. I'm not sure if it was just something specific to the one I purchased but I'll find out when my 2nd one arrives this weekend and will try to update this review to reflect those thoughts. That said, it didn't bother me to the point that I didn't feel like carrying this with me everywhere I go. As another reviewer noted, this thing makes the best sound opening, it's really satisfying and although mine is usually relegated to mundane tasks such as opening boxes it's very reassuring that if I ever did need to use the Quake to defend myself it would be deployed quickly and show my attacker I mean business. Pros: Sharp Durable Intimidating ******* Cool! Cons: Blade may be slightly loose when locked UPDATE 22MAY17: (The following Monday) I found my original Quake on Friday when I got home (the girlfriend had seen it under where I usually throw my bag down at the end of the day...) but still kept my order for the new one. It arrived Sunday and seems to not have the sloppiness of the lockup on my older one, so I now have no reservations at all recommending the to anyone!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome big knife!! I have carried this knife for a couple months know and I love it, it's big, it's well balanced so the heft of it still flows smoothly, it has an awesome spring response for the weight and thickness of the blade, the blade Stays sharp....really sharp, and I haven't had any difficulty honing the edge with my lansky sharpening systems. I love the deep set pocket clip, it says I have a knife but nobody expects the size of knife lurking in my pocket. I'm a big guy, a mechanic, an out door but, an edc guy, and this knife exceeds most of my expectations for a knife at this price point, if you have big hands and want something that fits your hands, feels rock solid, has a razor sharp edge, and looks (and sounds) like you mean business this is the knife for you. More about the sound, I keep things in my possession for protection, this knife offers what I call the pump action shotgun effect, the clank of this knife as it slams into the open position is an attention getter, and says I mean business and I am well equipped to handle myself.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Self Defense: This is is the knife you want. I'm in a country that your life is in constant danger. I bought my SOG because it can be easily be removed from my belt in a seconds notice with the blade quickly opened if there ever becomes a need. The blade is thick,strong and sharp.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from how to open one handed hold the knife with fore finger one one side and thumb on the other, at end of cross guard, place 3 remainder fingers near where blade opens. push thumb and fore finger, wham, it opens.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not like it. It's a nice night. It's useless when trying to open it with one hand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality. Rock solid "BIG" knife. I bought this knife a couple of months ago. It is a BIG knife!! I'm a bit disabled and don't have a lot of strength in my hands. Because of the strong assist spring, I had some difficulty opening the blade. With some practice and learning the proper technique I have been able to overcome this problem. The steel is pretty hard which takes a little more time to sharpen the blade. Once the blade is sharpened however it hold an edge well. It is an intimidating knife. When the blade snaps open it delivers the "WOW" response.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, great knive Once I figured out how to open knife I love it. That took a while though. I still cannot open with my thumb. I use ring and middle finger on other side of knife and that works real well. Also, corrugated surface of handle really grabs jeans when in pocket with clip engaged. Great knife overall with obvious quality.
