SOG Vulcan Tanto Folders
SOG makes some great folders in Japan. The Vulcan series are solid work knives with great style. They are sturdy, well built and fast opening with the ARC lock which is similar in deployment to the Benchmade Axis Locks. These new models with tanto shaped blades arrived in full size and mini and are a welcome addition for those who need the tactical shape.
Here is SOG”s information:
The General Electric M61A1 Vulcan is a 6-barrel 20mm cannon of the gatling-type. It fires standard M50 ammunition at 6,000 rounds per minute and is integral part of the armament of modern fighters such as the F-15, F-18 and of course the F-16.
The SOG Vulcan is also formidable with a powerful strength of construction. There is nothing weak about the Vulcan. Take for instance the patented Arc-Lock™. Or, the full steel liners encased in glass reinforced Zytel™ handles. The blade is a San Mai steel with a tanto shape and includes our new kick deployment of the blade. Press on the back of the blade and the knife comes out fast. Reversible clip, Arc-Lock, and double thumb studs make for complete ambidextrous use. Limited Production.
