    A few months ago i picked up a sog flash 2 for about 80 dollars and cant stop raving about it. It has a wicked edge out of the box it shaved hair off my arm no problem with its 3.5 inch aus 8 drop point blade. it also holds an edge very well the only thing with aus 8 is it can be pron to rust but i never had a problem. The handle is made of excuse my spelling "zytel" with a total weight of only 3.1 oz for this tactical blade. Mine is in a plain edge the combo edge has very agresave serrations and tear more than cut. They use there sog assisted technology witch is opposing high tension springs to open the blade. And need i ad that they cryo treat there blades.

    For the money i think that this a 9/10 blade great job S.O.G

    i just think for any knife under 100 dollars it is hard to find value like this in an Americana knife. and if you sell them for cheep i might buy one or 2 more in digital and tiger stripe.

    no you just bought after release so they charge full book ( RRP) which was $109 or similar)

    its the same as car spare parts , new models charge a fortune , a while on and they get cheaper

    bleeding edge is always expencive , you probably had yours way before most folks

    but if you can resist and wait you'll save on most items

    look at those segway things $12,000 when they first came out and now less than $5 K so folks now are paying half what the mythbusters did

    thats life my friend

    ( they do it with guns too , sucks eh cause that where i get stung often ;) )

    I make knives. I design knives. I'm a cutler, and a damned good one.
    I carry a Flash-the older model. I convert them to autos.
