SOGVL04: VL04 Vulcan Mini Tanto
Since 1959, the General Electric M61A1 Vulcan and its derivatives is a 20mm 6-barrel Gatling-style rotary cannon that has been in service in many United States military aircraft through several wars. It fires standard M50 ammunition at 6,000 rounds per minute and is an integral part of the armament of modern fighters such as the F-15, F-18, and F-16.
Built upon the M61 Vulcan’s reputation of speed, power, and versatility, the SOG Vulcan is also formidable with a powerful strength of construction. There is nothing weak about the Mini Vulcan. For instance, SOG's patented Arc-Lock can hold over 1000 lbs. of force making it an ideal hard use lock type, far surpassing conventional lock strength. With its ambidexterity, ability to self-adjusting over time, and ease to clean, the Arc-Lock might just be the perfect lock. The full steel liners encased in glass reinforced nylon (GRN) handles give the knife rigidity and durability during use without adding unnecessary weight. The Vulcan Mini’s blade is a full 0.125" thick and includes a double thumb stud and flipper tab for quick, ambidextrous deployment and use. Press on the back of the blade and the knife flips out fast and smooth. A reversible clip, the Arc-Lock, and double thumb studs/flipper tab opening make for complete ambidextrous use. Combining the usability and construction of the knife with a durable VG10 stainless steel blade make this folder a great addition to the Vulcan name.
