We have taken the large format Twitch XL, famous for its SOG Assisted Technology™, and added our 'practical tactical' tanto blade to create a great combination of beauty and beast. See the Twitch XL for more info.
SOG's unique cryogenic heat treatment process increases the toughness and wear resistance of our blades. Taking the knife slowly down in temperature to less than -300°F and then back to room temperature. This stress relieves the material on an atomic level and increases overall strength as well as edge retention. Knife edges stay sharp longer with significantly less micro-fracturing and edge-chipping. Its this dedication to making your knife SOG sharp that sets us apart from the rest.Look for the new Cryogenic Heat Treated logo on selected SOG Knives that have received this process.
SOG Assisted Technology works through the balance of opposing high-tension coil springs. As one opens the blade the force to propel the knife open becomes greater than the closing force and the blade will open on its own. The end result propels the blade out once the operator has initiated the one-handed opening action.S.A.T. works so well that right-handers can use their left hand equally well to open a folding knife (of course this works oppositely for lefties).We warn you... this blade action is addictive! Play with it once, and you'll be opening it again and again!
