In terms of folding knives, it doesn’t get any better than the Quake XL by SOG Knives. This formidable knife is powered by SOG’s SAT 2 (SOG Assisted Technology) that opens the blade with the push of a thumb. Rather than a thumb stud, the cross guard simply folds in when closing the knife and is used as the lever to assist when opening. In addition, this knife boasts a thick dual-tone VG-10 clip point blade with a length of 4.5 inches, forged aluminum handles, and full length stainless steel liners. Suggested retail price is $229.00. See below for a full rundown of features and specs.

The SOG story begins in Vietnam, where members of a highly classified US special ops unit – known as MACV-SOG – carried a unique combat knife into the jungle on covert missions. Years later, in 1986, that knife inspired a young designer, named Spencer Frazer, to found SOG Specialty Knives. His mission: to reproduce the original SOG Bowie knife and pay tribute to the special ops unit that created it. What began as a single commemorative model soon became a full line of innovative tools – field-proven by US Special Forces, even honored as the Navy SEAL knife of choice. Today, SOG knives are carried with confidence into the most demanding situations. Forged out of tradition, hardened in the field, honed for you. So whether you’re protecting others or leading an epic hunting expedition, tackling one of life’s everyday challenges or facing your most extreme conditions yet, lead the way with SOG.
