The muscular stance and bulging form belay a quiet confidence. This little guy has its own point of view and the strength to back it up. With a very innovative textured machined aluminum handle, the Bluto handles well. Its VG-10 blade, Arc-Lock, and hardened scalloped steel liners make a rock solid package. The sweeping blade style is modern and functional and unique to the SOG line. Flex a new look with the Bluto. The Arc-Lock just might be the perfect lock. Why? It is totally ambidextrous and has all of the attributes knife designers relentlessly search for, but rarely find. Strength: The Arc-Lock far surpasses conventional lock strength, tested at over 1000 lbs of force measured at the lock in an independent lab test. Speed: The Arc-Lock provides lightning-quick, one-handed opening and closing capability. Safety: Spring-action securely retains the blade closed. When unlocking, the fingers are safely kept clear. Durability: The Arc-Lock is self-adjusting over time and can be easily cleaned for long term optimal performance.
