SOG Flashback Assist Knife

SOG Knives has been producing ultra thin assist and automatic knives for several years.  Their SOG-TAC and SPEC-Elite lines of automatic knives have been consistently delighting everyday and tactical users around the world.  When you order one of the ultra thin knives from SOG you get a high quality knife built from top quality materials.

The Flashback Assist knives are no exception to the standard that has been set by previous knives from SOG Knives.  In fact, the Flashback series builds on an already strong platform of quality and excellence.  The Flashback knife has an AUS 8 stainless steel blade with either a satin finish or the TiNi black finish.  You can pick it up with a tanto or drop point blade.  The mini Flashback is also available.

The handle on the Flashback is stainless steel wrapped around a glass reinforced nylon frame.  This gives you all the strength of stainless steel and the weight reduction of GRN.  The ultra thin handle is less than 1/2″ thick–which is absolutely incredible.  This, combined with the reversible deep carry pocket clip make this one of the most unobtrusive knives you can possibly carry on a daily basis.  You almost won’t even know you have it in your pocket.  Throw in the fact that it only weighs 3.7 ounces and you have a powerful tool that isn’t going to weigh you down.   And yet, because it has such top quality construction, you have a knife that is going to handle whatever you throw at it.  Use it hard and it will continue to perform.

Here are five things that make this knife great.  First, it is amazingly thin and light which means it isn’t going to gobble up pocket real estate and it isn’t going to weigh you down.  Second, the knife has an AUS 8 blade which will give you all the cutting power you need on a daily basis.  Third, the knife feels good in your hand.  It is built for maximum gripability and control.  It has jimping and curves in all the right places.  Fourth, the price is right–at this price you can pick up one for you and one for your friend.  Fifth, the deep carry pocket clip means that you can carry this one without blaring that fact to the world.  And the bonus reason is that SOG Knives are built tough and they back it up with a limited lifetime warranty.

SOG Knives just keeps producing top quality, every day carry, tactical knives for prices that almost command you to purchase them.  Get over to our website and pick up your new SOG Flashback assist knife right here.  And rest easy knowing that your new knife will continue to perform to the quality standards that SOG Knives is so well known for.
