SOG’s SEAL XR Is A Tactical Folding Knife For Hardcore Professionals

Aug 6, 2019

Category: Gear

Though we’re big proponents of everyday carry knives, we know that daily carry — at least in an urban setting — isn’t the only purpose of a blade that folds. Sometimes, folks need an extremely tough tactical cutting tool that’s also built with a measure of compactness in mind. And that’s exactly the case with SOG’s SEAL XR.

As you might gather from its aggressive, blacked-out appearance, this is not a knife made for the faint-of-heart. Rather, it was made specifically with hard, professional use in mind. As such, this knife has a larger silhouette than traditional EDC knives — measuring up at over 9″ when opened with a blade that’s 3.9″ on its own. And that beefy size is matched by American-made CPM-S35VN blade steel and an ultra-durable GRN handle. And to ensure that it can be opened quickly and stays open in use, it also has a flipper mechanism and a super-sturdy XR locking mechanism. Though not for everyone, if you need an absolute powerhouse of a folding knife, you can get your hands on the SOG SEAL XR for $189.
