Doing a rescue and need to cut someone free, cut away clothing on an injured person, or free an animal tangled in rope? The new SOG Flash II Search/Rescue is the perfect knife for dealing with these situations. Its extra long blade with rounded tip, makes freeing someone or yourself from a tangled mess safe and lightning-quick. Using S.A.T. to propel the blade open using one hand makes it even more useful. The Flash line of folding knives debuted SOG's patent pending S.A.T. (SOG Assisted Technology). This mechanism helps propel the blade open once the operator has initiated the one-handed opening action. They're fast as lightning, safe, and provide an extremely strong blade lock. This opening action is uniquely different from all others with its fast start and power curve throughout the movement of the blade. When closing the blade into the handle you actually feel as if you are cocking a side arm, as the blade is held securely inside the handle.
