Description
SOGTWI8: TWI8 Twitch II
SOG
 
Looking at the intricate construction of the Twitches reminds us of the workings in a fine chronograph watch; everything right and precisely in its place. These techno wizards feature a pass-through lockbar (patent pending) from which the "kick" of the blade sticks through. By pressing on the "kick", one is able to initiate the opening of the blade. S.A.T. SOG Assisted Technology ™ then takes over to finish opening and to securely lock the blade open. What makes these space-age little gems even more beautiful is that they are also affordable!

Pros: Lock Type, None
Cons: Pocket Clip, Blade Material, Handle Feel, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness
Not the best not the worst
This isn't the worst folder that you could get but it needs to be much sharper when you get it and the thumb studs are a little bit stiff.

Okay pocket blade...
The Twitch ll is an okay pocket blade. I use it to open packages and cut things like paper, leather, fabrics, etc. I don't really see anything exceptional about it. My Old Timer that I owned before this was a better knife, in my opinion. I've never been crazy about stainless. The only difference that I can determine between stainless and carbon is that stainless is harder to sharpen and bevel. The pocket clip was very annoying, so I got rid of that right away. There is an unacceptable amount of wobble in the joint, and I can't find an Allen wrench small enough to tighten it. The rubberized handle material (whatever it is) is hard to remove stains from. The mechanism is the really fine feature. I can't figure why it needs flickit knobs when you can pop it open easier from the back. I'm trying to get rid of those, too. All in all, yes it is a nice pocket blade, but not worth the $40 my wife paid (it was a Christmas gift). Comparable blades sell for a much cheaper price at my local Pilot truck stop.
