SOG Introduces Twitch XL Locking Folder Knife

SOG’s new Twitch XL is a locking folder knife made from AUS-8 stainless steel heat treated to a final Rockwell hardness of 57-58, then cryogenically treated for toughness and edge retention.

The Twitch allows for one-hand operation: move the blade open about 10-15 degrees and SOG's Assisted Technologies (S.A.T.) takes over and fully opens the blade.

Its pocket clip is reversible for right- or left-hand carry, and the position of the clip places the knife deeply into the pocket for a reduced public profile.

Tanto with black handle: $100

The Twitch XL has a 4.25-inch-long handle with a tapering profile (top to bottom). Overall open length: 7.5". Blade specifications: 0.125" thick by 3.25" in length (drop tip or tanto blade). Blade material: Cryogenic treated AUS-8 Stainless steel; 57-58 C Rockwell scale. Handle: Black hard-anodized 6061-T6 machined aluminum or optional graphite. Weight: 4.2 oz.

Black handle with drop tip blade: $100

Graphite handle with drop tip: $100

Black handle with black TiNi blade (Titanium Nitride surface finish): $140
