Knife. Here are my thoughts on the sword:
What I like about the blade:
1. Crafted from VG-10 San Mai steel, the Arcitech gives you an excellent compromise between border retention and flexibility. This feature also helps protect against rust.
2. SOG’s rugged arc-lock is known for its strength and durability. You won’t need to be concerned about lock failure as the arc-lock is made to last a lifetime.
3. At 3.5 inches long, the clip line style blade is both practical and legal. You shouldn’t enter any trouble from law authorities when carrying the Arcitech on your pocket.
4. My knife came hair shaving sharp out of the box and does not have any difficulty keeping its advantage. The jimping or thumb grooves on the back of the blade enables you to make precise cuts or tear during something when you are in a hurry.
5. You have the choice of either jigged bone or carbon fibre grips. They both feel fantastic in your hand and should endure the same amount of time. The carbon fibre version is black while the jigged bone handle has traces of red.
What I didn’t like:
I wish the pocket clip were ambidextrous to permit for left-handed transport.
With a suggested retail value of $425, the SOG Arcitech is not your average knife. Everything that goes to its high quality and dependable. I believe that the Architect is ideal for an everyday work partner or to become the second member of the best boning knife collection.
