SOG Specialty Knives Vulcan Mini Straight Edged Folding Pocket Knife
My new favorite EDC
A great knife must be beautiful to look at, feel great in the hand, have great steel, be easy to open and close with one hand, solid lockup, great handle material, razor sharp out the box, etc. This knife has it all. Also a great bargain for a VG 10 blade with such thickness (sale price was 84.95 then I got another 10% off because it was a "floor model"). Can't find anything about this knife I don't like. Right up there with my other quality knives such as Spyderco and Benchmade.

Great EDC Knife!
This is a very good edc knife. I always carry two pocket knives and this has been one of them ever since I bought it. It is lightning quick to open. I use the button on the back to flip it open and the thumb stud to flip it closed.
The balance of the knife is also great.
The only complaint I have is I cannot find a hex key wrench to fit the pocket clip to reverse it. (I'm left handed). I have tried both standard and metric.
I have no regrets about buying this knife.

The SOG VG-10 blade takes an ultra sharp edge and stays sharp. This is a great "Hard Use" EDC knife. The "Arc Lock" is better than BM's "Axis Lock." It swings on a pivot pin and doesn't stick or twist in the frame like the Axis Lock. It's very smooth opening and closing with good textured handle scales. The weight is 3.4 OZ with a 3" blade. I love this knife. Better than 145CM steel. Thanks, MH

Get nothing but compliments
Use this as my EDC and everyone I show it to is envious. The assisted opening mechanism is smooth as silk and the biggest compliment I get on it. Was great use on my hike through Myakka River State Park for whittling, food prep, cutting cord, and carving. Knife is light, solid grips, and most importantly a crazy-sharp blade out of the box.

This is my EDC(every day carry)knife and all I can say is WOW.Razor sharp right out of the box.The arc-lock is rock solid along with zero to minimal blade play(depending on how you tweak the pivot screw).VG-10 is a great steel and holds an edge very well.Deep bayonet pocket clip which I absolutely love.Zytel handle provides a great grip to prevent slipping.Also,an overall great blade shape to stay solid but sharp.Ergonomics are A+ on the handle. This is by far my favorite knife in my collection!!!!!

What a knife!!!!
I purchased this knife for general everyday use and in the field. The knife is awesome! The weight, balance, and general field is incredible. The best folding knife I have ever owned. The locking system is the strongest I have seen, not to say that the VG-10 steel holds its edge like nothing I have experienced. This knife is my favorite!
