Ask a layman to explain what a knife is and you’ll get a weird look and vague descriptors like “sharp” or “stabby.” Ask a knife collector and you’ll get a dissertation on every kind of knife ever made, from stone age cave-scrapers to custom carbon-fiber blades. They’ll also tell you that a good knife is all in the details — something that the folks over at SOG are experts in. I mean, what else would you expect from a brand whose name stands for “Studies and Observations Group“? They read that dissertation on knives, absorbed it, and came back with the FLASH AT — a fully ambidextrous, ergonomically designed, rapid-open knife made for everyday users. The premium CRYO D2 steel blade comes with SOG’s patent-pending Assisted Technology XR Lock for a fast one-handed open and solid lock-up, as well as an optional thumb-stud for those who prefer multiple opening styles. In short, this is the knife to get if you don’t know what you’re looking for — and if you do know what you’re looking for, then you don’t need us to tell you that this is still the knife to get.
