Description
SOGSP23: SOGzilla (Large - Black TiNi)
SOG

In devising this line that includes several sizes and blade shapes we wanted to make the Zilla distinctive. Zilla is fast, you wouldn’t want to try and outrun him! The grip is a dual directional prehistoric armor plate and the big-bodied, black-coated blade features a new opening shape... the likes of which has never been seen before. In hand, the knife points instinctually and feels familiar. Steel liners make a stout construction. Keep your knife caged in your pocket with our patented low carry reversible clip. SOGzilla... It’s a new species. Don’t be caught alone!

SOG zilla review update
I still am not crazy about this knife the blade play was a big hit right out of the box and maybe it tainted my opinion right off the bat. the good, Its a large blade, the notch in it does make it a waveable knife IE pulling it out of your pocket you can snag that gap on your pocket and deploy and open the blade in one motion making it very quick, the gap is kinda small but with a few minutes practice I was able to "Wave open" it 9 out of 10 tries. the blade comes wicked sharp out of the box with a perfect grind and relief edge. The knife carries extremely flat and deep in your pocket thanks to its slim profile and great pocket clip. the handle affords a decent grip but because if it being so slim it is kinda "sharp" when gripped tightly. although since the lock and pivot have so much play this is a large light duty knife only. so you really wont need a vice like grip on the knife. The bad, The blade play and lock movement are bad the blade rattles in the handle very slightly, and opened the tip has around of 1/4" of play side to side and a millimeter or two up and down. so again I would class this as a light duty large folder. Im sure in an emergency it would do more but I doubt it would survive. the liners are around .060 thick but made of some very cheap looking metal. something I would expect from a no name company not from SOG. Overall Im still very disappointed with this knife. I cant reccomend this as anything but A very light use EDC blade. And for that light duty EDC role this knife is far too large for that role If you as me , there are plenty of cheaper lighter smaller knives that will do the job better. If you like big blades but dont really hard use them I guess a 3.75" 4.8 oz knife isnt too bad, this knife will open packages and do all the mundane real light tasks that many use there knife for every day. Other than light edc work I think this knife is useless, and as I said for such a big blade the strength is kinda lacking. maybe get the smaller version.

A dino of a disapointment
I was expecting sooo much more from SOG this knife is cheaply made with cheap parts, the blade wiggles alot like 1/4" at teh tip and thats not cool, i tightend the screws and no better, the gap in the thumbhole is a joke all it dies is weaken the blade pointlessly. the handle is too thin as are the liners. SOG you should do better an inexpensive knife can be a great knife like my kershaw scamp or my CRKT m21 and my m16 or the kershaw clash, Companies that make high dollar knives all make the same mistake they try to make the same profit margins on a knife 1/4 the price so they cut corners and sell stuff not up to par, Now im not saying this is a bad knife its an ok knife but for 30 bucks there are sooooo many BETTER knives even my $20 kershaw scamp and my $15 kershaw Vapors are better blades than this Give the customer a quality product that deserves the SOG name and at a good price,and do this by using the same metals and plastics but just take the hit in your profits CMON

Great knife for the price
Love this knife, pretty thin profile for it's size, and fits easily in the pocket. Sits very low on the clip, which is a bonus. It came very sharp, and has held it's factory edge better than most my knives. Handle has good grip, but seems I little too 'plastic-y'. Overall a great spyderco-style knife without the big price tag.
