SOGSJ52: SJ-52 SlimJim XL - Black
Our technical assisted folding knife line, stands out by virtue of simplicity and minimalism. It doesn’t try to be the biggest or the loudest in the crowd. It is unobtrusive but always there when you need it. Constructed from a single piece of steel, SlimJim is just that, the slimmest assisted knife in the world. Start to open the blade, and let SOG Assisted Technology (S.A.T.) finish the action with a bang, using one of the surest assisted technologies out there. Tactile bumps and cutouts aid in control while all features are purposeful and functional. The patent-pending safety is used to insure the retention of the blade in the handle as well as acts as a double lock in the open position. The stealth carry clip is reversible.

Great Knife
I like everything about the knife from its looks, to its feel, to the way it opens. The slim, machine like design caught my eye. It spoke to me of a no-nonsense, very light knife that opened with a flick of the thumb. I can carry it in my pocket or hook it into my shirt. It took awhile to get the knack of opening it but after a little practice, it opens smoothly. I like the SOG logo machined into the end of the knife as well as the four-lined grip near the top. I would have preferred a serrated blade or at least partially serrated. I paid full price so now with the big discount I see the knife as an excellent buy and probably will buy the model with the smaller 3 inch blade.

Not All That Exciting
I received my SlimJim XL recently and upon initial review, I am not impressed. It appears cheaply constructed and not easy to employ. The blade is sharp but the assisted opening is not very efficient and initially did not work very well at all. Some lubrication helped, but it still is awkward to activate. I would use this knife for some light utility work but would never trust my life to it. This knife is overpriced—if you buy it put it in the toolbox. The Meyerco Dirk Pinkerton assisted folding knife with the Wharncliff blade is a far better functioning knife at less than half the price.
