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 Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
