Review: SOG Flash I – My Favorite EDC

by jack on May 11, 2011

Knife, wallet, phone.  I always have at least these three things on my person, and more times than not, the knife is a SOG Flash I.  It’s light, it’s durable, and in two years of service …it hasn’t failed me yet.  Needless to say, this review is a positive one.  Check out the video and hot list below for the details.
