The SOG Banner BA1001 is a cool EDC pocket knife, made in the United States. Its sleek lines and Matt-black design make it look really cool. In terms of materials and finish SOG went all out: aluminium scales with a matt-black anodized finish. The blade is made from CPM S35VN and is enhanced with a Matt-black Cerakote coating.
The blade appears with a firm click. With the thumb stud you nudge it a little, the assisted opener will do the rest. As such you can quickly get to work. A solid button lock locks the blade when opened. This is one of the most user-friendly locks on the market today. You press a button and you can close it. Simple! For right-handed users that is: left-handed users might find this knife a little more difficult to use.
The CPM S35VN steel blade retains its sharpness well. This means you don't have to sharpen your knife as often. The Matt-black Cerakote coating protects the blade from rust and prevents reflections. The slight recurve in the edge ensures that the material is pulled towards the edge, making the knife incredibly efficient in use.
