SOG98FSA: Flash II (Partially Serrated)
SOG

The Flash II has got to be one of the coolest knives we’ve ever seen. Forget its wicked-quick blade access, that it handles like a race car on rails, or that it locks up like Alcatraz. It just looks and feels extraordinary. The Flash family of knives feature SOG Assisted Technology (S.A.T.), which employs a powerful piston lock that is easily released with a sliding button.

The Flash II (Partially Serrated) comes standard with glass-reinforced Zytel handle and 1/2 serrated blade. All Flash knives come standard with SOG’s patent pending, reversible bayonet mounted clip that ensures the lowest, most discreet carry possible. We also had the foresight to incorporate an additional safety lock that gives added security when the blade is closed.
 
Cryogenic Heat Treatment
SOG's unique cryogenic heat treatment process increases the toughness and wear resistance of our blades. Taking the knife slowly down in temperature to less than -300° and then back to room temperature. This stress relieves the material on an atomic level and increases overall strength as well as edge retention. Knife edges stay sharp longer with significantly less micro-fracturing and edge-chipping. Its this dedication to making your knife SOG sharp that sets us apart from the rest.

SOG Assisted Technology
SOG Assisted Technology works through the balance of opposing high-tension coil springs. As one opens the blade the force to propel the knife open becomes greater than the closing force and the blade will open on its own. The end result propels the blade out once the operator has initiated the one-handed opening action.

S.A.T. works so well that right-handers can use their left hand equally well to open a folding knife (of course this works oppositely for lefties).

We warn you... this blade action is addictive! Play with it once, and you'll be opening it again and again!

Excellent Daily Carrier
I have carried this knife for many years now and I am exceedingly pleased with it's performance. The assisted open feature is very quick and it locks back quite securely. As indicated with an earlier review there is a little side to side play in the blade but it has not been a problem as during "normal" usage with most knives there is little to no force applied perpendicularly to the blade. Conversely I have used the back side of the blade with a magnesium fire starting block with success and even then the small amount of slack in the blade was not off putting (this could easily be considered abuse). I also was at first unimpressed with the "plastic feel" of the handle but rigorous use has proven that it is up to any task and constructed of a material much more durable than the plastic to which I was comparing it. What would probably speak louder than anything else is the fact that I am considering purchasing another one because through the years of use and sharpening the blade is finally wearing down to the thick. I am certain that I have gotten the original $60 worth of use out of my current one.

Nice all-around knife
Used for everyday use. Perfect knife for carrying around in your pocket. It's not too big nor too small. Good for many uses.

Great Knife!
Feels like its not even in my pocket at times, guess that's why I'm on my third one. Open's so smooth, great features. And the TiNi blade coating makes it look so cool. I just hope I don't lose this one also.
