About Aero Precision

Aero Precision is known for two things: superior engineering & machining, and the ability to get the customer what they need, when they need it. Their products have been recognized across the country by members of the military and law enforcement communities for one simple fact – they work better. Aero Precision’s roots are deeply tied to aerospace, and the company’s drive for clean, perfect engineering and machining stems from that. When you’re building something that will fly in the air, there is no margin for error. The team at Aero takes that same approach in the firearms industry. Not every manufacturer will have razor thin tolerance levels. Not every manufacturer will personally oversee the development, design and machining of every part that comes off the line. Aero Precision is not every manufacturer.

Manufacturing a great receiver isn’t just about what the end product looks like. It’s about what it feels like, how it works, how it handles and performs. Aero Precision pushes the boundaries of manufacturing and challenge the status quo by constantly looking for new ways to use, develop or evolve existing processes. By personally designing and engineering state of the science tooling in-shop, they are able to leverage the latest machine tool technologies to provide you with components of the highest quality.

SOG Knives announced an early product release for 2017 via email today.  The Ultra C-Ti which features a Carbon Fiber Handle, VG-10 Blade and a Titanium Clip.

ultra-c-ti-1

The Ultra C-Ti weighs in around 1.3oz and doubles as a money clip.  This knife appears to be very minimalist in weight and in thickness.  The Ultra C-Ti appears to MSRP for around $134 and is available at sogknives.com and at BassPro.com

 

Per SOG’s webpage, regarding the Ultra C-Ti; “At just 1.3 oz, the Ultra C-Ti makes a great, lightweight folder that doubles as a money clip. The minimalistic design of the Ultra C-Ti does not take up much space and fits comfortably in the small watch pocket of jeans. The 2.8-inch clip point blade opens and closes with one hand smoothly and locks open with our exclusive Arc-Lock. The high quality VG-10 steel ensures that every cut is as sharp as the first. Utilizing carbon fiber for the handle and titanium for the clip, it is light yet strong and durable. Although every bit of excess weight has been engineered out of the Ultra C-Ti, you will be surprised at the power it conveys.”

ultra-c-ti-4 ultra-c-ti-3 ultra-c-ti-2I am interested to see what other products SOG will have released prior to and at SHOT Show in January.  They have been rather robust in the area of continuing to provide new options every year.  For more information on the Ultra C-Ti, please visit:  http://www.sogknives.com/ultra-c-ti.html
