For years customers asked SOG Knives to produce a tactical switchblade, or more correctly, an "automatic". To their credit, SOG waited until they got it right, and the end result is the SOG-TAC series.

The SOG-TAC is an tried-and-true design that looks like nothing else. A full-sized knife, yet relatively slim, the SOG-TAC was designed for more than opening the mail. The blade travel is definitely fast, and once open it locks up like a bank vault. The machined 6061-T6 hard-anodized aluminum is inset with grooves, which gives two-fold benefits: it makes the SOG-TAC lighter, and gives you a better, more positive grip. The safety locks the blade in both the open and closed positions. A reversible pocket clip sets the knife deep in your pocket for more "discreet" carry. Another subtle feature is the gorgeous up-swept bowie blade. Not only does the blade look good, but its "full belly" design makes it a true "cutter."

Kudos to SOG Knives, as we think they really got this one right!

    High quality small auto.

    High quality, small auto, nicely put out by SOG. Mine has the plain edge, since it comes sharp enough to do
    any cutting required by a knife this size. I've collected all of the different sized SOG autos, since they're so well priced,especially when purchased from Jeff.
