Flick the “kick” on the back of the Twitch II and the knife’s 2.65” AUS-8 stainless steel blade jumps from the rosewood handle in the blink of an eye. That’s thanks to SOG Assisted Technology (S.A.T.), a system of opposing high-tension coils that propels the blade open instantly once you give it a flick
Looking at the intricate construction of the Twitches reminds us of the workings in a fine chronograph watch; everything right and precisely in its place. These techno wizards feature a pass-through lockbar (patent pending) from which the 'kick' of the blade sticks through. By pressing on the 'kick', one is able to initiate the opening of the blade. S.A.T. (SOG Assisted Technology) then takes over to finish opening and to securely lock the blade open. What makes these space-age little gems even more beautiful is that they are also affordable, and it's now available with a rosewood handle for that classic outdoorsman look.
Start to open the blade, and let SOG Assisted Technology (S.A.T.) finish the action with a bang, using one of the surest assisted technologies out there. Tactile bumps and cutouts aid in control while all features are purposeful and functional. The patent-pending safety is used to insure the retention of the blade in the handle as well as acts as a double lock in the open position.
Thumb grooves on the stainless steel handle provide a comfortable and controlled grip. It also includes a reversible bayonet pocket clip for a close carry and quick access. All SOG products are guaranteed against defects in workmanship and materials for the life of the original purchaser.
Caring for Your Folding Knife
Keeping your knife clean, dry, oiled and sharp are the primary defenses against corrosion, wear, and potential injury. Be sure to clean the blade and handle after each use--however, do not soak your knife in water. A mild solution of soap and water should remove any dirt and debris that may have accumulated during use (avoid harsh detergents such as laundry or dish soap, and chlorine products). To remove any debris from inside the handle you can use a toothpick for any visible lint or dirt, or a Q-Tip for smaller amounts of dirt and debris.
After cleaning or after exposure to moisture be sure to completely dry your knife blade and handle, taking special care with any sensitive handle materials. Use a soft cotton cloth or chamois and a small amount of moisture-displacing oil (such as WD-40 or 3-in-1), on the blade only, to prevent water spots and oxidation from forming.
Fingerprints and weather are the primary causes of rusting or corrosion on a knife blade. To keep your knife looking its best, SOG recommends that you give your blade a light coat of oil after each cleaning, and prior to long-term storage. Be sure to also apply a Paraffin-based oil to the pivot point, which will not only keep the action of your blade smooth but will repel dirt and debris which could impede the blade's action.
