The SOG Visionary I features the same spectacular blade shape as the Spec Elite, with the handle of a Mini X-Ray Vision. The end result...a great blade in a small package!

People with big and small hands will find the Visionary I 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 slightly curved straight edge opens quickly and smoothly via SOG's Arc-Lock. The Arc-Lock offers superior strength, speed, and ambidexterity.

The Arc-Lock sets a new standard in tactical engineering. It has all of the attributes knife designers have relentlessly searched for, but rarely find:

    (1) Strength: The Arc-Lock was independently lab tested at over 1000 lbs. of pressure without lock failure.
    (2) Speed: Spring-action provides fast and smooth one-handed opening.
    (3) Safety: Positive closing feature ensures that the blade securely stays within the handle when closed.
    (4) Ambidexterity: Blade can be comfortably accessed with either hand.
    (5) Durability: Arc-Lock is self-adjusting for long-term, optimal performance.

One of my Two Favorites
James L.
I've been using it for over 5 years. I keep buying more and more, but I haven't found one I like better. My three main requirements are manual opening, 3" blade and Arc Lock (or similar such as Axis lock). My other favorite is the SOG Mini X-Ray Vision.

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.
Great knife
