The SOG Traction series is one of the best bargains in SOG’s lineup. Their quality folders retail in the $50-$60 dollar range, but the Traction offers great quality at an incredibly low price-point. The SOG Traction is available as a Clip Point or Tanto that are both available for the great price of $17.99.
SOG makes combat ready tools that would be at home in your pocket or an active warzone and the Traction is no exception. The handles are made of glass filled nylon that’s molded with an aggressive textured pattern that provides great grip when cutting. The Traction had a great overall feel that rivals anything in its price range.
The SOG Traction has 5Cr13MoV stainless steel blades. 5Cr13MoV is durable and retains an edge well (companies make machetes out of this stuff). The satin finish blades look great with the jet-black handles. The Traction is available in Clip Point and Tanto patterns.
