Based around superior CPM S35VN steel, SOG’s USA produced knives offer improved toughness, better edge retention, higher resistance to wear and edge chipping while maintaining ease of sharpening. The Strat Ops is a USA-made fully-equipped, heavy-duty folder with an automatic CPM S35VN blade with a black Cerakote coating housed in a linen Micarta handle with stainless steel liners. Despite a 3.5-inch blade, it is relatively lightweight at 3.7 oz and slim. It is quick to open and durable. With the push of a button, the blade opens quickly and locks up with a secure click of the lock. The linen Micarta handle offers superior grip in wet or dry conditions and looks better the more it is used. Combining all these features with a thin profile and a reversible low-carry pocket clip make it a perfect choice for your carry. For questions on legality, consult your local, county, & state laws.
