SOG12210157: SEAL XR Flipper Knife
SOG
 
With the XR locking mechanism, the SEAL XR brings an aggressive profile and silky smooth opening to this EDC offering. The 3.9" clip point blade deploys quickly and easily on ball bearings, and you have both a thumb hole and flipper tab as opening options. To assist both the opening and the handling of the knife, there are multiple sets of jimping on both the spine of the blade and on the handle. The handles are made from glass reinforced nylon and have a "persuader" tool on the base. The knife comes with a reversible pocket clip and due to the GRN handles is lightweight and easy to carry.

Good can be better
Great smooth opening .big knife . great blade steel.strong lock would buy again for tool purpose or self defense now cons jimping way to hard can all most rip your skin off or would if you say and opened it 50 times so much so flipper kinda useless unless file jimping off off or were glove thumb hole doesn't work at all wrong placement great idea tho they just need to rethink couple things I think it would all work if the close retention wasn't so stiff if you try pull blade out buy itself with no lock bar opening it's hard to that why other ways don't open easy.and also smooth handles because some sort plastic even were you open lock bar.the pocket clip makes 1 inch of knife showing when caring beside all that knife is good and strong work tool .

Got it for Christmas, modifying it alreaddy
I deburred the flipper. That made the knife lock closed, requiring unlocking to open.I made a stand off of Aluminum alloy on my mill. The stand off stops the blade from fully closing, down by the blade tip.

Really want to love this blade....
Want to love this knife. The blade is made in the USA and it is a good one with thick S35VN steel and a terrific clip point design. SOG's take on Benchamde's AXIS lock is also very good. Love the size and weight and general over-all feel - with some caveats. So why only 3-stars? Too expensive in my opinion for an Asian assembled folder. Additionally, the excessive use of gimping that is far too aggressive. Snags in your pants pocket. Can be uncomfortable in the hand, especially during hard and aggressive use. Will tear your jeans to pieces. Works great with gloves, but will tear them up as well. GRN handles at this price point is absurd. SOG came close, but having to take sandpaper to a $180 dollar knife's handles to make it useful is not acceptable. If it came to market at about $130 max, it would be an acceptable deal. At asking price, not worth it. Too bad, because it is certainly a looker and has terrific potential.
