One of the new S.O.G. knives for 2016 is the Sideswipe. The S.O.G. Sideswipe folding knife comes with a straight razor edge blade, and a standard tension locking bar action. S.O.G. has developed a well-earned reputation for making serious knives for professional uses. The S.O.G. Sideswipe could be a great companion for the patrolman or detective for the professional needs of law enforcement. Additionally, the Sideswipe is sized just right to be an off-duty every-day-carry (EDC) knife as well.
A good pocket knife is one of the essential “extra” duty gear items that a police officer must have. Nearly every day I am confronted with a task requiring the use of a knife. Duty knives must be compact for easy carry, but large enough to tackle tough jobs. These duty knives also need to be made of quality materials to sustain their durability and blade edge.
