In our opinion, there are two things that give the Topo Meridian its character. One is the unique, curved blade that is great for slicing, and the other is the wavy handle that is branded by carving out the SOG name. This particular SOG M46 has a satin blade. Imagine yourself cutting the shrink wrap off a pallet with this knife. With the curvature of the blade, the point won’t get hung up. All you get is nice smooth cutting action. The knife opens with the SOG Assisted technology so expect a nice pop when opened. A reversible pocket clip is included for easy carrying. Spencer Frazer chief designer “I am very excited about this new approach that we came up with. This skeletal robotic design compiled of anodized aircraft aluminum layers, steel liners and G10 texture is sure to be a trend setter.” Perhaps the wildest design that we have ever seen… and maybe one of the coolest. In fact the design and function of the Topo Meridian is such a trendsetter that the cutlery industry awarded the Topo Meridian the 2005 Blade Magazine American-Made Knife of the Year.
