This model of the SOG Vulcan has a satin finished tanto blade and a black GRN handle.

The SOG Vulcan folding knife takes its name from the General Electric M61A1 Vulcan, which is a 6-barrel gatling gun that is commonly attached to a variety of different military fighter jets. Like the gatling gun, this knife is powerful and reliable in any situation. It features SOG's patented Arc-Lock mechanism, grippy GRN handle scales, and a reversible deep carry pocket clip. The integrated flipper tab and thumb studs, paired with the reversible pocket clip, enable the knife to be completely ambidextrous.

Great slicer, strong tip, grippy scales, sold construction, smooth deployment.

Not a big fan of the low detent, “spring assisted” flipper that still requires a wrist flick.

No longer my edc but it’s aggressive aesthetic and solid construction makes it feel like a great tactical option.
A little rough around the edges

Got this knife today and first impression was that it was a little smaller than I expected. I love the blade shape and you can clearly see the dividing boundary of the San Mai edge which comes sharp & smooth. The action & lockup are tight from the factory but should loosen up. The fit is good but after handling the current ZT's, Kizers and the Kershaws in this price range, the overall finish is a little rough. Sharp unbroken machined edges and stamped internals instead of the water jet and EDM methods of the Trendy competition. It will definitely handle any task but is not going to win any beauty contest.
