    Re: New UK legal folder from SOG

    Anyone got one yet? I am not much into UK legal knives but this one looks ok'ish?

    Its not a plastic handled knife but a G10, to the gentleman above...

    Anyone know of any other UK legal knives to look at? not interested in anything ''ye oldie/wood'' tactical but with a smaller blade? 2inch?

    If it were a bit cheaper I might have bought one to have a go at restyling but at 50-ish it's a bit expensive to buy to potentially ruin. Maybe I'll see one on sale at some point.

    The sad thing is, if it doesn't sell well then we may never see the mechanism on a nicer knife.

    CRKT/LiongMah's Journeyer is a good value option. Blackwashed 70mm blade with textured FRN scales.

    Wow that's expensive. Tell me again when they go on clearance.

    Re: New UK legal folder from SOG

    I know this is a totally subjective view, but my interest in any knife is initially sparked by one that looks attractive to me. This one doesn't get over that first hurdle and I have yet to see a SOG knife that does. But that's just me.

    Nonetheless, it's always interesting to find out how different things are important to different people.

    Re: New UK legal folder from SOG

    Late to the party here, but sorry guys, I can't understand why anyone would ever consider purchasing this one as an EDC, when there are so many cheaper and better options available. I have been thinking that SOG have lost their way as a knife company for some time, and this one only verifies the fact, I think that they have run out of ideas personally.
    Sharpen it like you love it, use it like you hate it.

    I think that's what everyone is saying. It's a really interesting 'locking' mechanism attached to a really underwhelming knife. And now, it seems, an expensive one, too.

    Re: New UK legal folder from SOG

    I was considering getting one of these knives by SOG as the mechanism caught my interest. After seeing the prices they are being sold at its too much for casual interest in the mechanism.
    Once they are discounted/reduced I will probably get one but at full current prices. Not a chance.

    Totally agree. The only SOG I ever owned was a tiny multitool that had very good shears. Other than a slight and passing attraction to the assisted rescue knife, they do absolutely nothing for me. Mind you, I could tar Kershaw with the same brush.

    Neither brand offers anything in the way of excitement, I've not seen a single model that has tempted me. SOG particularly, are stuck in the 'black, tactical' rut.
