This could be one of the coolest manual folders on the market. I have always preferred Spyderco if I am looking for a manual knife. They have a reputation that is well deserved. SOG takes a big step in the right direction with their Vision knife. The SOG00068 knife has a VG-10 combo blade that comes out of a titanium handle. Looks good, moves good, and cuts good. This is a great knife. Or you can reduce your cost level by getting the SOG00071 that has Zytel handles. I prefer the 68 but the 71 is right up there. Check out the SOG manual folders and be pleasantly suprised at their quality.
