Manufacturer Description

The SOG Specialty Knives & Tools MXV72-CP X-Ray Vision Mini is a lightweight and ergonomic knife similar to the original SOG X-Ray but almost an inch shorter. Made of VG-10 steel with an attractive bead blasted finish, this premium Japanese steel is specially designed for high-quality blades used in cutlery and known for its durability and maintaining a hardness of Rc 60 without becoming brittle. The 3-inch partially serrated, folding blade has a tanto shape with a very strong tip that's ideal for piercing, sharpens easily and makes quick work of any task. The blade of this limited knife provided lightning-quick, one-handed opening and closing capability thanks to the special Arc-Lock for ambidexterity. The ergonomically contoured and well-balanced handle has a black finish and is made of a high strength, no-slip, abrasion and impact resistant glass-reinforced nylon to fit comfortably in your hand. A reversible pocket clip extends from the back of the handle, allowing the X-Ray Vision to sit low in your pocket for the most discreet carry possible. This pocket clip can also double as a money clip. The MXV72-CP has a closed length of 4-inches, overall length of 7-inches, blade thickness of 0.12-inches and weighs 3-ounces. The SOG Specialty Knives & Tools MXV72-CP X-Ray Vision Mini Knife with Partially Serrated Folding 3-Inch Steel Blade comes with a limited lifetime warranty that protects against defects in manufacturing and materials. Each SOG product is created with the help of company founder and chief engineer, Spencer Frazer. Known for their uncompromising style and performance, these knives and tools showcase innovation, dependability and a unique, futuristic style that has garnered awards and recognition worldwide. SOG products have also won favor among law enforcement, military and industrial customers that rely on their tools to perform flawlessly in the toughest, most adverse conditions.

Featuring the same award-winning ATS-34 steel blade as the original SOG X-Ray Vision, the X-Ray Vision Mini from SOG Specialty Knives and Tools (model MXV72) is almost an inch shorter of its bigger sibling and it weighs just 3 ounces. People with big and small hands will find the Mini X-Ray a pleasure to hold and carry.

At a Glance

The small, swift X-Ray Vision Mini fits perfectly in a pocket or bag when you're on the move. It has a finely textured Glass-reinforced Nylon handle that is both lightweight and ergonomic. And its ideal three-inch blade with partially serrated edge opens quickly and smoothly via SOG's Arc-Lock.

The Arc-Lock is totally ambidextrous and has all of the attributes knife designers relentlessly search for, but rarely find. Surpassing conventional lock strength, it was tested at over 1000 pounds of force measured at the lock in an independent lab test. The spring-action securely retains the blade closed, and fingers are safely kept clear when unlocking. The Arc-Lock is self-adjusting over time and can be easily cleaned for long term optimal performance.

Caring for Your Folding Knife

Keeping your knife clean, dry, oiled and sharp are the primary defenses against corrosion, wear, and potential injury. Be sure to clean the blade and handle after each use--however, do not soak your knife in water. A mild solution of soap and water should remove any dirt and debris that may have accumulated during use (avoid harsh detergents such as laundry or dish soap, and chlorine products). To remove any debris from inside the handle you can use a toothpick for any visible lint or dirt, or a Q-Tip for smaller amounts of dirt and debris.

After cleaning or after exposure to moisture be sure to completely dry your knife blade and handle, taking special care with any sensitive handle materials. Use a soft cotton cloth or chamois and a small amount of moisture-displacing oil (such as WD-40 or 3-in-1), on the blade only, to prevent water spots and oxidation from forming.

Fingerprints and weather are the primary causes of rusting or corrosion on a knife blade. To keep your knife looking its best, SOG recommends that you give your blade a light coat of oil after each cleaning, and prior to long-term storage. Be sure to also apply a Paraffin-based oil to the pivot point, which will not only keep the action of your blade smooth but will repel dirt and debris which could impede the blade's action.
