SOG Specialty Knives and Tools AO3-P Arcitech Damascus Folding Knife
The limited production SOG Arcitech, which ushered in the company's Platinum line, is a technical masterpiece with flourishes and premium materials that make this knife a must-have for any collector.
The 3.5-inch blade is made of handsome Japanese Damascus, which uses a core of VG-10 and 15 layers of Nickel and stainless steel on either side. After the steel has been forged and folded repeatedly, the blade is acid etched to bring out the pattern that's unique on every knife.
The blade is further accented by an Abalone jeweled thumb stud used to engage the knife.
Named after SOG's tough Arc-Lock mechanism, the knife boasts the most advanced technologies. The Arc-Lock is tested at more than 1,000 lbs of force, keeps the blade securely engaged through rigorous use, and opens and closes easily with one hand.
The titanium bolster that houses the Arc-Lock is complemented by the carbon fiber handles, which provide an understated look and comfortable feel in the hand. As a bonus, the low-carry pocket clip on the knife doubles as a money clip.
