Smaller, lighter, but every inch a FLASH…with super-fast SOG Assisted Technology.
The Flash I (Straight edge) comes with glass-reinforced nylon (GRN) handle and straight edge, Satin finished blade. All Flash knives come standard with SOG's patent pending, reversible bayonet mounted clip that ensures the lowest, most discreet carry possible. SOG also had the foresight to incorporate an additional safety lock that gives added security when the blade is closed. The reversible low-profile clip can be used in either left or right side pockets for discreet, low carry. There’s even a built in safety shows that shows red to signal the knife is armed and ready to go…whenever you are.

Flash I came first, of course. The Flash I offers practically all the performance of the larger, Flash II, in a more compact size for everyday carry…with a tactical flair. 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. This proven mechanism helps propel the blade open once the operator has initiated the one-handed action. With its fast start and strong power curve throughout the movement of the blade, the S.A.T. opening action is as fast as lightning.
||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!
||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°F 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.
