SOG Unveils 3 New G10-Equipped XR Folders For Everyday Carry

Comprised of a fully-ambidextrous set of sliding buttons on either side of the handle linked to a transverse locking bar, SOG’s XR lock was something of a game-changer when it first debuted on the brand’s Terminus XR. And though this insanely-strong patented locking mechanism has since appeared on numerous other folders from the “Studies And Observations Group,” the Northwestern knifemaker has now deployed a trio of new XR-equipped EDC folders with the TAC XR, Vision XR, and Pentagon XR Knives.

The TAC XR is a manually-operated version of SOG’s automatic TAC range, replacing the push-button deployment with the ultra-sturdy XR lock, and pairing the folder’s 3.375” D2 drop point blade with textured G-10 scales. Boasting G-10 handles and a CTS-XHP steel blade, the Vision XR is the newest member of the Vision lineup, with revisions that resulted in a stronger, more ergonomically-friendly EDC blade that’s even easier to deploy. The most high-end model of the three, the Pentagon XR is based on SOG’s existing Pentagon S14 and offers a more compact, folding alternative to the popular tactical fixed-blade dagger. The Pentagon XR also replaces the S14’s double-sided dagger blade with a single-edge 3.5” CTS-XHP steel dagger profile supplemented by a Sharktooth-serration tip that allows for markedly more efficient puncturing prowess. Outfitted with full steel liners, the TAC XR, Vision XR, and Pentagon XR Knives are all available now with pricing set at $80, $150, and $175 respectively.
