Everything You Need To Know About Blade Shapes Of SOG Folding Knives

There are four main blade shapes in the market: straight, ball-bearing, pocket, and stoneware. Each shape has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it is not a “one-size-fits-all” kind of blade shape.

The difference between straight and concave blades is the angle at which they cut. A concave blade angles toward the tip of the knife instead of being parallel to the rest of the knife.

The difference between ball-bearing and flat blades is how they store energy when landed. A flat blade does not hold enough energy to create a good landing on an object, so it is not recommended for self-defense purposes.

Blade material

There are three main materials used in blade shapes: titanium, carbon, and foam. All three have their own properties and advantages, making it beated which one you should use.

Titanium is a extremely hard metal that does not easily bend. This makes it better for close-quarters combat such as in self-defense situations.

Carbon is a substance that has been converted into a different material which is still metal. This makes it the fastest blade shape available today: the spoon-shape blade. These blades can reach speeds of over one mile per hour!

The fourth shape material is foam. This does not really have any names for, so we will just assume that there are no unfamiliar words or phrases when we talk about it.

The strongest shape available for the SOG DOI-style foldable knife is the delta-shape. These knives have two sides that are parallel to each other, and one offset side that is offset from the other.

These shapes allow the blade to be thicker or thinner, and also changes the angle at which the blade is held. Some manufacturers hold their knives at an acute (pointed) or a obtuse (reversed) angle, making a different shape.

Because of this, some experts suggest one or the other on a knife, depending on what you want your knife to do. An acute shaped knife would be used for cutting things like paper or fabric at an extreme angle, while an inverse-shaped knife would be used for purpose of skinning or even de-limbing wood and such.

Safety lock

When folding and unfolding the knife, you will need to do so safely. When the knife is closed, it is locked in place. If you were to tug on one of the tips, it would pull up and over the other two tips and fold the knife in a new position.

To unlock the blade, you will have to do so gently. You must slightly push on one of the backside tabs to release it. Once released, you must wrap your hand around the blade to prevent further closure. You can then step away or put away if done correctly!

There are three main types of safety locksatreps used for folding knives. These are molecular elevatoring, gravity-based safety locksatreps, and pressure-based safety locksatreps.

Purpose of blade

The purpose of the blade shape is to provide additional cutting power. There are two main reasons for having a different blade shape. The first is to educate about them and let you know what kind of cut you can make!

The second is to give you different ways to pay for your knives. Some companies offer private sale or sale items with their knives, making them more affordable than a standard $40+ knife. By having a different blade shape, you are paying the same price as someone with a standard size knife, but with a smaller blade.

The flat-blade style can be more versatile as it can be used for most things, though it may not be the strongest style. The hollow-blade looks stronger and is better for very hard materials such as bone or ceramic because the tip does not break through.

What type of knife is this?

The term blade shape refers to how finely or thickly the cutting edge is mounted to the knife. There are two main types of blade shape: thin, thin-and-fat, and thick-and-wide. All three have their advantages and disadvantages, so it is important to know which one you want before you buy!

Thin blades are more like a razor’spaper cut-throat type of knife. These are the most popular blade shape as they are less expensive and more widely available. The thinner the blade, the thinner the rangier (more) knife you want.

Thick knives better protect your hands from falls or other dangers. The thicker blade also prevents small sharp edges from being pushed through objects due to weight of the knife.

Easy to hold

One of the most important things about a folding knife is the shape of its blade. You have many choices when it comes to creating a knife, so let’s take a look!

Most people create regular knives with one flat blade length, called the main blade. These can be serrated or tip-pointed, and can be plain or decorated.

Others use a rounded blade, called the back blade. This is the only non-non-plain blade style found in all of SOG’s folding knives. It can be concave or flat, depending on which one you buy.

Cost effective solution

SOG also offers the Folding C-1, a very cost effective alternative to the Foldaway C-2. The Folding C-1 has a longer length of blade that can be folded back into the handle to create an extendable knife.

The Foldaway C-2 has a shorter length of blade that can be folded back into the handle to create an extendable knife. The length of the blade can affect your knife’s efficacy as a cutting tool. While both folding knives have two blades, their shape and thickness makes one difference in cost.

The longest available folding knife by SOG is the Foldaway C-2 at 8 inches long, while the shortest is the 8-inch Foldable S-1 at costco currently has at 7 inches! Both have two blades, make and thin design cuts in comparison.
