2 years ago I found a great deal on SOGS. They had a limited run of Vulcan Tantos. So I bought 3. 2 Vulcan Mini Tantos for $80 a piece and a Vulcan Tanto for $90. One Mini and the full size are in the safe. I've carried a Mini for nearly 2 years full time. Work, play, anywhere I go I have my Vulcan. I've cut through 2x4s to dig out bullets. Cut wire, plastic, sheetrock, anything you can think of. The Tanto San Mai steel blade is near unbreakable. I've sharpened it once. ONCE. The Vulcans come with twin stainless liners and the Arc-Lok.
The Arc-Lok Is SOG's Ambi lock for thier knives and is good up to 1100 lbs of force. A bonus advantage I've found is that you can open it with a flick of the wrist, but you can also close it with a flick. This takes some practice but becomes near natural after awhile. I can also do this with gloves on. The Vulcan line of knives are some of the top knives you can buy.
