The SOG Mini X-Ray® features the same award-winning, VG-10 steel blade as the original SOG X-Ray Vision, but is almost an inch shorter. The end result... a great blade in a small package!

People with big and small hands will find the Mini X-Ray a pleasure to hold and carry. It has a finely textured Zytel™ handle that is both lightweight and ergonomic. Its ideal three-inch blade with partially serrated edge opens quickly and smoothly via SOG's Arc-Lock™. The Arc-Lock offers superior strength, speed, and ambidexterity. A reversible clip allows both righties and lefties to carry the X-Ray Vision conveniently in pocket and pack or on vest, belt or jacket.

First loved it not so much anymore
Anthony M.
Out of the box I loved it the arc lock was addicting to open and close tanto was very good at cutting into things but it started getting rust spots after a few months I never store it wet I always wipe away my hand oils from all my knives at the end of the day but still is rusting, but other than that I still recommend it
One of my Two Favorites

I've been using it for over 5 years. I keep buying more and more, but I haven't found one I like better. I just wish I could get it in a satin finish too. My three main requirements are manual opening, 3" blade and Arc Lock (or similar such as Axis lock). My other favorite is the SOG Visionary I.

Additional feature that sets it apart is the deep carry clip and I like that the handle isn't so rough so it doesn't chew up my pocket edges.
Excellent knife for EDC
David A.
I've used my SOG Mini-XRay Vision for over 5 years. The knife is very robust and holds an edge well. The handle is comfortable in the hand and the clip allows the knife to be carried securely in the pocket. The arc-lock is my favorite feature. It provides a positive lock that is very easy to manipulate using one hand. If I had to choose a fault, the bevel on the top of the blade makes it difficult to clamp the blade in my Gatco sharpener to sharpen the tip.
better knives out there for the price

I wanted to like this, but the lock allows a lot of up and down movement. Keep on looking, very disappointed. None of my spyderco, benchmade or cold steel knives have such poor lock-up and many of them were less expensive.
