Opens in a FLASH for utility or protection…with super-fast SOG Assisted Technology
The Flash II Drop Point has got to be one of the coolest knives you've ever seen. Forget its wicked-quick blade access, that it handles like a race car on rails, or that it locks up like Alcatraz. It just looks and feels extraordinary. The Flash family of knives feature SOG Assisted Technology™ (S.A.T.), which employs a powerful piston lock that is easily released with a sliding button. This proven mechanism helps propel the blade open once the operator has initiated the one-handed action. With its fast start and strong power curve throughout the movement of the blade, the S.A.T. opening action is as fast as lightning. And it’s proven safe to carry and use, especially with the extremely powerful piston lock that is easily released with the new Arc-Actuator on the Flash II.

The Flash II Drop Point comes standard with glass-reinforced nylon (GRN) handle and hardcased black TiNi finished tanto blade. The TiNi (short for Titanium Nitride) finish is by far the best coating that can be applied to steel; it is is known to be both extremely scratch and peel resistant. This finish is applied to steel through a unique process of plasma deposition performed in a complete air-sealed vacuum. Glass Reinforced Nylon grip material is lightweight and highly wear resistant. It offers excellent impact, chemical, and heat resistance, makes it ideal prefect for knife handles.
All Flash knives come standard with SOG's patent pending, reversible bayonet mounted clip that ensures the lowest, most discreet carry possible. They also had the foresight to incorporate an additional safety lock that gives added security when the blade is closed. This safety shows red to signal the knife is armed and ready to go…wherever you are.
|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!
||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.
