Find the Difference in the Details
Cryogenic Heat Treatment for Sharp, Dependable Blades
The workhorse of any knife is the cutting surface, and OFSA-6 offers a full, 3.5-inch, half-serrated blade with an elegant satin finish.
SOG’s proprietary Cryogenic Heat Treatment ensures that this blade will stay sharp over the long haul. This intense process takes more than 48 hours and involves slowly bringing the blade’s temperature down to less than 300 degrees Fahrenheit, and then bringing it slowly back to room temperature. The stress created through this process relieves the material on an atomic level and increases overall strength and edge retention.
SOG Assisted Technology for Speed and Safety
Fast, safe and one-handed openings make SOG’s Flash series knives incredibly easy to handle in a wide variety of situations. Once you start opening the knife, SOG’s Patented SOG Assisted Technology, or S.A.T., takes over. Through the balance of opposing high-tension coil springs, the force to propel the knife open becomes greater than the closing force, and the blade will open on its own. This unique feature means that if you are using your dominant hand for another task, you can just as easily open the OFSA-6 with your other hand.
For security and peace of mind, S.A.T. was developed in conjunction with a superior locking system. The unique design of S.A.T. knives allows them to use locking mechanisms that are stronger, more reliable and easier to access ambidextrously than conventional liner locks.
For Flash series knives, this means the blade is held in place with a reliable piston lock that can be released quickly with a sliding button. An additional safety lock offers extra security when the blade is closed. For easy reference, the lock switch shows red when the knife is ready to open.
Low-Carry Pocket Clip
The SOG Flash product line includes a reversible, low-carry bayonet pocket clip. The clip protrudes from the butt of the knife, providing discreet and accessible carry. Plus, the clip is easily reversible for whichever side is most convenient.
Ergonomic Handle Design
The Flash Rescue knife is designed to sit comfortably in either hand, and is well-balanced for a natural feel that inspires confident cuts. SOG’s textured handle provides a sure grip for safe, accurate positioning. Plus, this handle is crafted from tough, glass-reinforced orange nylon, which is a compound that is lightweight, abrasion resistant and impact resistant. Finally, at just 3.1 ounces, this folding knife is lightweight and easy to carry.
Safety Locking Mechanism
Along the handle of the knife you’ll find a safety locking mechanism that holds the blade securely closed when not in use, which ensures your knife is safe and secure in your pocket.
