SOG Stingray 2.0 Gentleman’s Folders
The Stingray was a staple of the SOG lineup for many years. This new model is truly extraordinary. We have it with 2 different handle inlay materials- Carbon Fiber and Mother of Pearl. The Pearl model is numbered. Both models have pearl on the thumbstud. The new Stingray is slimmer and more solid than past models. The blades are VG-10 San Mai steel. These are really and truly gentleman’s folders.
Here is the SOG information:
This is an evolution of the original Stingray, which helped bring in a new age of modern pocketknives and was just retired after more than 15 years of service… The Stingray 2.0 is the next era! It is a stout little rascal that reflects the thick blade stock of the original but enhanced with our unique san mai steel. These beautiful pocket sculptures feature carbon fiber inlays, polished stainless steel handles, patented Arc-Lock™ , and stunning Abalone thumb studs. Despite it’s sleek and smooth exterior, the Stingray is still SOG tough on the inside, guaranteeing you will have the answer to many of life’s situations at your fingertips.

The Arc-Lock just might be the perfect lock. Why? It is totally ambidextrous and has all of the attributes knife designers relentlessly search for, but rarely find.
The Arc-Lock far surpasses conventional lock strength, tested at over 1000 lbs of force measured at the lock in an independent lab test.
The Arc-Lock provides lightning-quick, one-handed opening and closing capability.
Safety: Spring-action securely retains the blade closed. When unlocking, the fingers are safely kept clear.
Durability: The Arc-Lock is self-adjusting over time and can be easily cleaned for long term optimal performance.
