I was able to review two products from SOG recently. First up, the Fielder Assisted Knife. This is a very elegant, very classy knife that any guy would appreciate having in his pocket. Even for the men who don't normally carry a pocketknife, the style and appearance of this one make it fit into any wardrobe or style. Just take a look at this sweet, stylish thing!
As you can see, the Fielder Assisted is indeed perfect for any guy, whether his style is jeans and a t-shirt, khakis and a polo, or even a suit and tie (goes great with that Father's Day gift from last year!). After a couple weeks of testing, I can tell you that the locking mechanism is very secure, so there are no worries about it opening in your pocket. I have owned a couple knives that promised a secure lock only to have them pop open in my pocket, which is not fun at all! I love that it has a belt clip as well, for carry either in-pocket or on your waistband. If you're not familiar with knives, you may be wondering what the "assisted" part means. That simply means you can easily flip open the knife with just a small push on the thumb stud, and then the high-tension coil springs inside take over to propel the knife open - safely but quickly. Another aspect of this knife that I appreciate is the size and weight. It's the perfect size for an everyday carry, very lightweight and yet very sturdy-feeling. At less than 4 ounces, you will hardly even know it's in your pocket!
Another great gift for dads that you can pick up from SOG is their Throwing Knives. I received a set that comes with three throwing knives and a sheath that holds all three and attaches to your belt. Throwing knives are one of my favorite sports, and we have a target set up in the backyard for practice. If your dad enjoys playing darts, take it up a level with a set of these throwing knives! The knives are scratch-resistan, perfectly balanced for optimum throwing, and very lightweight. They come with paracord-wrapped handles which you can remove or leave on as preferred. This set is perfect for beginning knife-throwers! Seriously, what dad wouldn't prefer a cool new set of throwing knives over a boring old tie?!
If neither of these options seem to fit your dad's style, be sure to check out SOG's website for a great selection of all things blades and outdoor gear!!
