This Flash AT-XR has an urban gray handle and a partially serrated dark gray blade.
The SOG Flash is a well known classic, and it just got a major facelift. Now it has the AT-XR lock for easy and reliable one hand opening, and a cryogenically heat treated D2 blade for great edge retention and wear resistance. This lightweight knife has a deep ride pocket clip, so you'll forget it's there. When you need it, however, it's quick to action with the thumb stud and the assisted action.Features:
Overall a good quality knife that I come to expect from SOG. The handle is a bit slick to hold. Sharp blade and smooth quick action when opening. Opens easily when using the right hand. Using the left hand is harder to open the blade at times.
I collect knives; benchmade, microtech, protech, boker, etc. This is a good knife for the price. The reviews said it opened well but mine was VERY hard to open. A lot of force. Even after grabbing the blade and manipulating it a lot to break it in. It has a good weight, not too light or heavy. Even though the scales are plastic they feel good and I like the grip. The The pocket clip is nice too. I took the knife apart and shaved off just a hair from the notch on the blade pivot area that traps the AT-XR lock pin. Now it opens easily and fast. The bade also had a lot of side to side play and needed to be tightened. The back safety internal plate has rough edges and it catches just before it fully engages. It disengages fine. I guess my point is that it badly needed a tune up. Which I did but you may not want, or be able, to do. Now the knife functions pretty well (except the safety) and I do really like it (now). You may get a good one but mine needed some work. I saw a review that said the blade was tight and it opened easily. Mine did not. Again, it's good ...for the money.
