SOGTD1012: TD1012 Traction Folding Knife, Tanto
The Traction is an all-purpose line of solid lockbacks that are lightweight, durable, and best of all - affordable. The 3.5" tanto blade is made from dependable 5Cr13MoV stainless steel with a brushed satin finish. The sharp, straight edge blade cuts easily and quickly with a slight recurve to the belly. The blade locks open with the proven lockback mechanism to prevent accidental closure while in use. It's all housed in a thick, strong glass-reinforced nylon (GRN) handle that is contoured and textured to enhance grip and comfort. This is the one to get if you are looking for a light, reliable, and affordable knife.

The very best pocket knife, I have, or have EVER had!
This is my every day carry, use for everything, go to pocket knife. I have been carrying pocket knives (several at a time, in case one is lost during the day) for over half a century. All of them quality knives, at premium prices. Worked as a North Sea Saturation in my younger days, and used a knife (rope wrench) daily. Had a half dozen in my tool box (Green River Type), always sharp and inexpensive, so when it inevitably dropped overboard, into the sea, I didn't feel the need to jump in after it. Pocket knives, however, GOOD ONES, don't come cheap. Bought this one on a whim, inexpensive gift for a nephew. Never used a Tanto blade before. Broke it out, checked it out, and bought 3 for myself! (I had to buy even more, because I give them out as gifts). GREAT KNIFE!!! Blade shape is excellent! (Only an idiot would question the Japanese on the subject of proficiency of blade shape!) Lock is positive, and secure. Light weight. Sharp right out of the package, and I have yet, after the most part of a year, to sharpen it. And if it falls into the void, it's so inexpensive, that I haven't the slightest need, or urge to jump in after it!!!I still carry knives costing many times more than this one, strictly as backups, should I lose this one, until I get home and replace it with one out of the drawer.ABSOLUTELY THE VERY BEST POCKET KNIFE I'VE EVER HAD!!!I GUESS NOW, THEY'LL DISCONTINUE IT!!!...that's always the way of things.Get a few, while you still can!You will NOT be sorry!
