My affinity for pocket knives is getting a little out of control. When heading out the door in the morning I am more likely to forget my phone or car keys than my knife. Not sure what kind of psychosis I am suffering from but companies like SOG aren't helping.
Over the last couple of weeks, my EDC has been the SlipZilla from SOG. This sturdy folder has been a trusty blade in all kinds of situations. From day-to-day chores like opening packages and clam packs to heavy duty tasks like stripping kindling for a fire, it has performed beyond my expectations.
It isn't the easiest knife to open one-handed, but it is loosening up over time. I was a little weary at first because it's lock-back system doesn't really "lock" the blade open. I have a few scars on my fingers from knives that have closed on me before, but I haven't had a problem with this one yet. I am conscious of the risk at all time though. It sports a reversible clip, so you south-paws can switch it around. The scalloped G-10 handles provide excellent grip and are super durable.
If you are looking for a legit knife and not a letter opener, this is a great option. It may be more knife than you first think you need, but you won't regret it ever. Again SOG proves that you can get a top quality knife for just $50...
