SOG Blink Knives TBBA-99 are so-called "gentleman's knives" that can provide professional cutting power without taking up much pocket real estate. Just under five and a half inches when fully extended, these SOG knives are great for everyday carry, and they look great as well, with a Black TiNi finish and a contoured handle. The 2.25" blade of the Blink is a tenth of an inch thin and incredibly sharp, as you'd expect, forged out of AUS 8 stainless steel and honed to a fine edge. SOG Blink knives have an ergonomic anodized aluminum handle whose smooth lines allow it to slip in your pocket without feeling bulky. Ease of use is a key component for all the knives in SOG Specialty Knives' catalog, the Blink included; to that end, these knives use the SAT (SOG Assisted Technology) blade release system for lightning-quick, spring loaded blade deployment at the touch of a button. Since nobody wants a stainless steel knife springing open in their pocket, the Blink also includes a small safety lock along the back ridge of the handle that's easy to toggle on and off with your thumb, but will never release on accident in your pocket. If you don't want to put this value-priced knife in your pocket, clip it to your belt or bag with the included pocket clip, which can also double as a money clip. For a sharp, easy to use knife at a price that no gentleman could scoff at, purchase the SOG Blink Folding Blade Knife.
