Description

Features:
  • Black TiNi finished tanto blade made from cryo-treated D2 tool steel.
  • Automatic XR Lock opener.
  • Compact aluminum handle in black that is textured for a good grip.
  • XR Lock with a safety switch.
  • Deep-carry pocket clip for carry on your right or left side.

Description:

The SOG Knives SOG-TAC AU Compact is the smaller, more compact version, as its name implies. It has snappy automatic action with an exciting XR Lock opener. By pulling the lock down in the same way to disengage it, the blade will flip open and lock into place. You can engage the safety by pushing the lock up instead of down, which, instead of adding an annoying extra step to opening the knife, simply makes opening it require more force, reducing your unintentional blade deployment chances to almost zero. For a compact automatic knife that packs a punch, go with the SOG-TAC AU Compact.

Love the action on this little guy...if you see the review on the larger version where it says it is not a one hand opener don't believe the hype. This knife is a peice of cake to open one handed and the spring is strong but not as strong as a protech...but much better than my boker autos. The cryo d2 is easy to sharpen and the aluminum body is strong and lightweight. My first SOG and this one does not disappoint! Worth the price point!
Can this be the next big thing in autos?

The jury is still out on that, but I'll tell you what; the 3 inch Tanto blade is exquisite. The aluminum scales feel light, but sturdy in your hand. The XR lock does it all. It deploys the blade with a satisfying snap. It closes the blade, and acts as a lock. Fidget factor is off the charts, and really a clever design by the folks over at SOG.
I've been waiting a long time for these knives to hit the store shelves, and all I can say is it was defiantly worth the wait!
One little criticism; the packaging sucks! I like to keep my knives in the original packaging, and I literally mangled the box trying to get to my knife.
