The New SOG Light Saber? It’s ‘Glinty’

SHOT Show 2012 had more new things than we can ever cover, but this one stood out as awfully handy. And even more Star-Wars-y.

New this year from SOG are two new Blade Lights – offered in folding and fixed versions.

Pictured here is the folding version. It’s one of those oh-duh type devices offering a flashlight that works when the blade is open or closed, thereby letting one hand do the work of two. We can think of lot’s of practical uses:

  • Cleaning your fingernails in the middle of the night – without waking your significant other
  • Opening boxes in the dark
  • Checking to see if that London Broil on the grill is really done without admitting your lack of grill confidence to guests
  • And most importantly, making your fearsome knife blade actually ‘glint’ like they say in classic murder mysteries

The light is about 35 lumens and runs for nearly four and a half hours on AAA batteries.

Usually we might blow this off as a cheap gimmick. But coming from SOG, we’re confident that it’s built for punishment. And impressing your Navy Seal friends.

Got something to say?
