Reminiscent of the SOG-TAC auto series, the Zoom has a similar slim anodized aluminum handle with four finger grooves, but the Zoom offers SOG's patented assisted opening technology, which will be welcome in places where carrying automatic knives isn't permitted. The Zoom boasts impressive action that rivals and surpasses the speed of most automatic knives. A convenient safety switch next to the push button blade lock/release ensures you're in control.

This Zoom knife has a drop point blade with a black TiNi finish. The SOG Zoom is available in two sizes with satin or black finished drop point and tanto blade styles.

Hard to Believe its Not an Auto
Dylan D.
This has to be one of the fastest assisted opening knives that I own. The blade came razor sharp and perfectly ground out of the box, and SOGís AUS-8 has held up very well to use. The anodized aluminum handles are sturdy but create a very slick surface for a handle. The four finger grooves help compensate for this lack of traction, but the forward most finger groove can feel a little sharp due to the cutout that enables access to the thumb studs. The aggressive jimping on the thumb ramp also helps the user maintain a grip. My main issue with this knife is the safety switch. There is a considerable amount of play in the switch, and it rattles audibly in my pocket with each step I take. Iím not too concerned about it actuating on its own, but it is loud enough to be annoying. Iíll probably end up taking a hot glue gun to itÖ Overall, a very fast deploying blade with a unique blade shape and a decent design.
