SOG Knives and Tools has always continued to strive to innovate year after year.  2017 is no different.  Continue to read to see what is new for this year.

SOG Baton Multi-Tools 001-1000

SOG has reimagined the multi-tool with their new Baton series.  The models are named Q1, Q2, Q3 and Q4.  Each in the series is meant to fulfill a different series of tasks, not just add more tools to each.  The smallest, the Q1, is just a bit bigger than a permanent marker.  In the image below, you can see a variety of what each looks like open, but for a full break down, I recommend clicking on the model name below to check them out on the SOG webpage for full details.  Just the opening of these tools are worth checking them out.

SOG Baton Multi-Tools 002-1000

As pictured below, there are two new Kiku Models, the Kiku Assisted and Kiku Fixed.  All of these knives are designed in collaboration with master blade maker, Kiku Matsuda of Japan.  The Kiku Assisted comes with a VG-10 blade in either Black TiNi or Satin Polish and is 3.5″ in length (8.1″ OAL).  The handles are made of linen Micarta and have to be held personally to appreciate the texture of these knives.  The Kiku Assisted MSRP between $174-$187, depending on blade choice.

The Kiku Fixed is available in a 4″ VG-10 Satin Polish Blade and also comes with a linen Micarta handle.  A kydex sheath is also included.  The MSRP for the Kiku Fixed is $254.

The below knife, the “Terminus”, is an all-purpouse slipjoint folding knife that is legal in many places.  The 3″ CTS BD1 steel blade does not lock, though there is positive pressure to ensure the blade does not inadvertently close.  The  Terminus is available in Black Oxide ($80) or Satin Polish ($67).  This knife features G10 handles and a reversible pocket clip.

If you drop the below Ultra C-Ti knife in your pocket, you may forget it is there.  Weighing in at just 1.3oz, the Ultra C-Ti features a VG-10 steel blade and carbon fiber handle with titanium clip, which doubles as a money clip.  It is available only with a bead blasted blade and MSRP’s at $134.

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.

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.”
