Description
SOG7FSA: FSA-7 Flash I
SOG
 
The Flash has got to be one of the coolest knives we've ever seen. Forget its wicked-quick blade access, that it handles like a race car on rails, or that it locks up like Alcatraz. It just looks and feels extraordinary. The Flash family of knives feature SOG Assisted Technology™ (S.A.T.), which employs a powerful piston lock that is easily released with a sliding button.

The Flash I (Straight edge) comes with glass-reinforced nylon (GRN) handle and straight edge, Satin finished blade. All Flash knives come standard with SOG's patent pending, reversible bayonet mounted clip that ensures the lowest, most discreet carry possible. We also had the foresight to incorporate an additional safety lock that gives added security when the blade is closed.

Love This Knife!
I wanted a Benchmade Mod. 470-1. A similar knife in size and weight. The BM 470 was roughly three times the cost of the SOG FSA-7.Experience indicated need to question the quality of the BM; but I ordered the SOG just in case it was acceptable. I read the reviews and thought that the negative reviews and negative comments I read did not coincide with my past experience with SOG products. I mean the axial and lateral looseness of the blade described simply seemed out of place with this manufacturer. I carry this knife every day. I removed the pocket clip and due to this knife's light weight, slim lines and comfortable design I find it to be a nice riding piece of hardware. I know not the qualifications of the FSA-7's detractors, but I have an extensive background as an aerospace quality assurance inspector and machine parts inspector and find no evidence of looseness or aberrant assembly anywhere on my specimen. This blade is quite thin and holds an edge well, opens quickly and smoothly, the handle is positive in the grasp, and this knife performs almost perfectly as an EDC utilitarian tool. If I manage to master the blade lock mechanisms I will declare this knife as perfect for my use.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality, Lock Type
Could improve build quality
I use this as a standard EDC. Good: AUS8 takes decent edge, resists rust well. Assist opener works well. Handle has nice traction. Bad: As with other SOGs I've had, up/down blade play has developed and is significant. In addition, I can push with moderate force on the spine and the blade closes. If you can tolerate the play in the blade, its a decent EDC, but there are better options for less money.
