Ultraslim Yet Ultrastrong
Minimalistic, elegant, durable, and practical, the SOG’s Ultra XR sits perfectly in your pocket and has everything you could possibly need from an EDC piece. Compact and lightweight, it is 6.5mm thick and weighs only 34 grams or 1.2 ounces. It features a slimline design and premium light materials, making it excellent for travel.
The blade is crafted from CRYO CTS XHP stainless steel and the handle from carbon fiber: SOG only uses premium material in building their knives and tools. The latter is what helps keep this pocket knife so feathery light and comfortable to carry.
Due to the large amounts of carbon and chromium present, CTS XHP has excellent hardness, edge retention, and one of the best corrosion resistance of any stainless steel. The added Vanadium and Niobium give CTS XHP remarkable wear resistance.
Thanks to the clever XR Lock, the blade can be flicked open with just one hand and it will stay firmly locked open for ambidextrous operation.
There is also a titanium pocket clip that cleverly doubles as a money clip: a perfect detail to make the knife even more practical.
The price tag on this handy little EDC piece is $154.95. While not cheap, they are selling like crazy, so hurry up and make your move.
