The General Electric M61A1 Vulcan is a 6-barrel 20mm cannon of the gatling-type. It fires standard M50 ammunition at 6,000 rounds per minute and is integral part of the armament of modern fighters such as the F-15, F-18 and of course the F-16.
Built upon the M61 Vulcan’s reputation of speed, power, and versatility, the SOG Vulcan is also formidable with a powerful strength of construction. There is nothing weak about the Vulcan. For instance, our patented Arc-Lock™ can hold over 1000 lbs. of force. The full steel liners encased in glass reinforced nylon (GRN) handles give the knife rigidity and durability. The blade is a full .160" thick with drop point shape and includes a double thumb stud and kick for quick, ambidextrous deployment and use. Combining the usability and construction of the knife with a durable VG-10 stainless steel blade make this folder a great addition to the Vulcan name.
With its ambidexterity - and all the other attributes knife enthusiasts so relentlessly seek - the Arc-Lock might just be the perfect lock.
Tested at over 1000 lbs. of force (measured at the lock), far surpassing conventional lock strength.
Lightning-quick, one-handed opening and closing capability.
Spring-action securely retains blade closed, keeping fingers safely clear while unlocking.
Self-adjusting over time and easily cleaned for long-term optimal performance.
