SOG Flash II Review

SOG Flash II Review

SOG was established by Spencer Frazer and He is a well-known budding knife designer. All of SOG’s knives are designed by him. He designed very unique knives. The SOG Flash II is one of the best examples, A Knife that is very unique. He wanted to pay homage to a knife designed by an expert team at SOG. SOG became the official brand of the knife carried by the military forces and Navy SEALs in the United State.

  • Closed length: 4.5 inches

First Impression:

If we talk about the weight of SOG Flash II, then you will be surprised to know that it is very lightweight. The handle of this Knife is Made from textured GRN (glass-reinforced-nylon) which is a very dimensionally stable plastic.  This knife is cheap and light, but it’s durable and tough.  The shape of the blade is very traditional. The knife has no-frills design with a FFG (full flat grind). Obviously, as one of SOG’s traditional models, Flash II arrives in a couple of blade shapes (tanto, drop point, and Wharncliffe version) and you may also get it with tiger stripes and TiNi (Titanium Nitride) coating.

Carrying and Handling:

The handle of SOG Flash II is textured on both sides. It carries SOG’s unique reversible pocket clip which works very well and allows for deep carry and maximize concealment. If you would like to carry this knife on your tool belt, either drop it into a sheath or clip it inside a pouch.

Blade Style and Opening:

Mostly, this knife was tested on thicker plastic, packaging materials, foam, plastic sheeting, small wires, paper, and cardboard. The blade of SOG Flash II is made from AUS-8 stainless steel. Its length is around 3.5″. The knife may be sharpened easily. The blade is the long straight design which makes the SOG Flash II an easy knife to hone and sharpen.

Lockup and Deployment:

The deployment of Blade is very quick. The knife has an assisted opening. In order to overcome the spring tension, you can gently push on the thumb stud, and the blade out in a “flash.” Assisted openings feature on SOG Flash II is very beneficial for emergency case.  You can find a safety lock on the handle side of this knife.

Ergonomics and Pocket Clip:

Generally, Ergonomics of this knife is very good. In wet condition, we have never experienced any kind of slip when gripping it. The relative hardness and effective shape of the AUS-8 steel blade this blade would work great in combat or tactical applications as well as cutting situations.  The Flash II knife just feels perfect in every situation.


Overall, I am very happy with SOG Flash II. I would like to appreciate its weight. I can carry it anywhere as its weight is very light. You can get the assisted opening feature for both practical and fun. I would like to recommend this Best Pocket Knife to all. I consider that this knife is perfect for an emergency situation.

I really like the dual coils and thumb ramp of it. Both dual choils and thumb ramp help provide control for detail work. The handles side has been provided a diamond texture and assist with overall grip. For regular usage, SOG Flash II is very comfortable. If you would like to get something a little different, practical and, lightweight then I would like to recommend the SOG Flash II.
