I have a SOG Twitch II and I get a lot of side-to-side blade play in the knife and have decided that I don't like it because of that. How are the Aegis and Mini Aegis by comparison?
In my experience with sog knives (which is quite a bit) all of them have some side to side and usually just a little up and down. the zytel handles wear over time and the blade loosens up, my brother in laws flash 2 tanto is around 10 years old and has 1/8 inch play in every direction, but the lock holds and he still carries it. my uncles my, friends, and father in laws full size trident all are over 5 years old and are half beat to hell, but all these guys work hard, engineers, electricians and craftsmen. they care about getting a good knife for cheap that they can abuse and buy a new one when the old one wears out. they are working class knives. i had this exact knife around 2 years ago and it didnt have any blade play. i gave it to my brother when i bought my manix. it is ok to have a little movement in a blade, not like my brother in laws, but a little is ok. i used to shun sog knives because of the blade play, zytel and aus8 steel, but after seeing what my family and friends have put them through, id carry a sog no problem any day of the week, i personally just dont love assisted opening.
TLDR, the lockup on my mini aegis was great!
Thanks, after your info and reading in bladeforum, I think I am going to steer clear of SOG's folding knives. The twitch very much disappointed me, but I have a few of their fixed blades that I really like.
Nah. IMO isf you want cheap soft metals get the Chinese knives. Sanrenmu 7010 is amazing for 10 dollars
I have the original Seal Pup as well as many other SOG knives before they sold out and started selling their products in fuking Walmart. =( Boooooo!
Yeah, I have an old seal pup. I won't buy their stuff now.
