SOG Knives Spec-Elite knife series is based on the famous Pentagon Elite platform. This knife uses the Arc-Lock, which has been tested at over 1000 lbs. of pressure without failure. The Arc-Lock is fast and easy to use, whether you are left or right-handed. The durable Arc-Lock self-adjusts over the long-term for optimal performance.
This Spec Elite I knife has a bead blast finished VG-10 steel blade and tough lightweight Zytel scales.
Fits in the pocket great. Great feel in the hand and nothing compares to the action and use ability of this knife. I first purchased this knife when it came out and spent much more but still use it everyday and the blade and steel are awesome. Holds an edge for a very long time, but I do recommend taking it to a professional knife sharpener to have a new edge placed on it. All my knives are sharpened by one guy and I put a 22 degree angle on all my knives and that is what I prefer and it works well for me. In my opinion everyone should own this knife especially at the price blade HQ is offering it.
I have always been impressed with SOG knives. I have owned them for quite a few years and I decided to add another one to my collection. This knife fits in the hand very nicely and fits in the pocket well, even though it is a 4" blade. I love VG-10 steel. I think it is a good choice for knives.
