This TAC XR has an od green handle and a black blade.
The SOG TAC XR is a manual version of the popular TAC Auto. It's a great choice if you want a strong SOG knife that's legal in more places. The knife is made of cryo-heat treated D2 steel, so it's tough and will hold a great edge. The XR lock is the star of the show, able to take a beating and be used with either hand. The TAC-XR is a perfect tool for the hard user!
This knife is about as good as it gets for smooth operation and ergonomics in the hand. The pivot is so smooth and it takes little effort to open the blade as well as close it with one hand with gravity. It’s a hefty one and it will add a little weight to your pocket but it will serve the purpose every time.
I received this knife by complete surprise this year for Father’s Day… and I couldn’t be happier. And not just because it was a thoughtful gift, but because I honestly love everything about this knife! From the smooth deployment and closing it provides, to the locking mechanism used, to the ‘beyond razor sharp’ blade, it just screams excellence. Grippy G10 that is coarse but not overly so, and a nicely positioned pocket clip that allows it to ride great in your pocket. I can’t believe I looked over this knife before. Beats out knives two and three times its price, and that’s no lie. Give it a try!
