SOG Specialty Knives Twitch I, Black Tie
A "twitch" of your finger or thumb is all that you will need to open this blade.
Once again, Spencer has taken the classic lockback design and pushed it to the next level. The Twitch features a pass-through lock bar from which the "kick" of the blade sticks through. By pressing on the "kick", one is able to initiate the opening of the blade. SOG Assisted Technology (S.A.T.) then takes over to complete the full opening and solid lock-up of the knife. The S.A.T. mechanism only propels the blade open once the operator has initiated the one-handed opening action. This opening action is uniquely different from all others with its fast start and power curve throughout the movement of the blade. We also had the foresight to include a locking safety, insuring the blade doesn't open until you're ready. The safety can be engaged once the blade is open so that the locking bar cannot be released, in essence creating a double lock.
With its hard-anodized machined aluminum handle, stainless steel blade, slim lines and two comfortable sizes, the Twitch is as fast as lightning, safe, and provides an extremely strong blade lock.
