BLADE LIGHT

I’ve carried SOG knives for years and next to my Benchmade it’s one of my favorites. I’m like most guys, a pocket knife is an essential everyday item, but if you’re in the dark without a flashlight, it won’t do you much good — unless it’s a SOG BladeLight Knife. Thanks to state-of-the-art switches and circuitry, it packs six LEDs into its GRN handle on either side of the blade, providing shadowless light for precise cuts. Oh, and it’s also waterproof, draws its power from AAA batteries, and can serve as a flashlight when the blade’s put away. Arriving in Q3 2012.
