Features and Benefits:
The XL is classyit moves well, looks right, walks the walk, and talks the talk. It is not just a larger version of a Twitch. It is serious business that can more than get the job done. This is a high-tech statement of sophistication with all the bells and whistles that you expect from the designers at SOG. The fine construction comes together to make the XL one of the most practical and beautiful knives that we have ever handled. Once again, Spencer has taken the classic lockback design and pushed it to the next level. The Twitch XL features a pass-through lock bar from which the kick of the blade sticks through. By pressing on the kick, one is able to initiate the opening of the blade. SOG Assisted Technology (S.A.T.) then takes over to complete the full opening and solid lock-up of the knife. The S.A.T. mechanism only propels the blade open once the operator has initiated the one-handed opening action. This opening action is uniquely different from all others with its fast start and power curve throughout the movement of the blade. Part of the opening design is suck back, that keeps the blade closed until the operator moves the blade approximately 15. This feature along with the integrated blade locking safety, insures that the blade doesnt open until youre ready. The safety can be engaged once the blade is open so that the locking bar cannot be released, in essence creating a double lock.
