SOG's first folding knife, the first generation Tomcat, set the standard for the large format lockback folders and won the award for Overall Knife of the Year in 1988. Today the redesigned Tomcat 3.0 will still win a place in your hand. Like a modern day tank, this heavy duty folder is big time armament but has the finesse to turn on a dime. The Tomcat 3.0 features SOG's Arc-Lock that combines speed and safety in controlling the big 3.75-inch blade. Surprisingly light for its size, the Tomcat 3.0 is also quick and smooth to deploy with either hand using the double thumb studs. The VG10 blade rotates effortlessly to lock up in SOG's Arc-Lock. Tested at over 1,000 lbs. of force at the lock, the Arc-Lock is SOG's strongest lock. The handle is made of stainless steel and textured Kraton which make it lightweight and easy to hold.
With its ambidexterity—and all the other attributes knife enthusiasts so relentlessly seek—the Arc-Lock might just be the perfect lock.
Tested at over 1000 lbs. of force (measured at the lock), far surpassing conventional lock strength.
Lightning-quick, one-handed opening and closing capability.
Spring-action securely retains blade closed, keeping fingers safely clear while unlocking.
Self-adjusting over time and easily cleaned for long-term optimal performance.
