Designed for multi-purpose use, the Spec Arc features a subdued design with a VG-10 blade, Arc-Lock for smooth operation and strong lockup, and GRN handle with stainless steel liners. The 4.0-inch drop point VG-10 blade has a smooth bead blasted finished to reduce reflection. At 4.4 oz, it is lightweight and easy to slip into a pocket. The GRN handle with stainless steel liners provide a solid feel and balance. The Arc-Lock not only provides smooth operation, but is one of the strongest locks available. It can be carried conveniently with its reversible low-carry pocket clip.
With its ambidexterity - and all the other attributes knife enthusiasts so relentlessly seek - the Arc-Lock might just be the perfect lock.
STRENGTH: Tested at over 1000 lbs. of force (measured at the lock), far surpassing conventional lock strength.
SPEED: Lightning-quick, one-handed opening and closing capability.
DURABILITY: Self-adjusting over time and easily cleaned for long-term optimal performance.

That same knife inspired knife maker Spencer Frazerto reproduce the original SOG Bowie knife and pay tribute to the special ops unit that created it.
