SOG Vulcan Mini Folding Knife Review

SOG Vulcan Mini w/ Arc Lock Dual Thumb Studs 3" VG10 Blade

If you own a set of high-end Japanese kitchen knives and have ever wondered to yourself "hey these work pretty well, a lot better than my pocketknife, so what gives..." you'll be pleased to hear that the folks at SOG Knives had the same thought running through their minds.

That's one of the reasons behind the making of the Vulcan blade. While its VG-10 steel got its start in Japanese kitchens, it has now made its way into high-end tactical knives, pocket knives and hunting knives.


The blade on the SOG VL-02 came razor sharp out of the box. The blade on the Mini Vulcan is a thing of beauty. A plain edge VG-10 blade, impressive thickness, and a nice recurve, has a very attractive satin finish on the high quality blade. VG-10 is often called "super steel" because it's so ridiculously hard and holds a sharp edge for a long, long time. The layers of steel provide greater resistance to corrosion than other varieties of steel on the market.

The plain edge blade measures 3 inches in length and folds into a durably hard black Zytel handle. This handle is equipped with lots of convenient features including thumb rests, finger grooves, traction grip, serrated cutters, and eyelets.



I love the
SOG Mini Vulcan and am sure you will too. The locking mechanism is very solid, their arc lock system is no doubt a quality build. Opens very fast with a kick on the back, and also has thumb nubs on both sides. The clip is a little tacky, maybe a little big, but it also lets the knife ride low. It is a pretty solid clip nonetheless, and can be switched to either side. This knife is very easy on the eyes, for me it is almost the perfect design, it is very nice to hold. True piece of art. I have experienced no blade play. Has grown to become one of my favorite edc (every day carry) knives.

And that's why the Mini Vulcan Knife is not your ordinary pocketknife. Great job SOG!
