Shed new light on your hunt with the BladeLight, Field & Stream's 2012 Best of the Best award-winning knife. Featuring six LED lights (that's 35 lumens) set into a smaller, easier-to-use handle and a skinning blade engineered with precision and supremely sharp, you can count on shadowless sightlines while slicing and dicing. Two tools in one frees a hand, increasing safety in the field exponentially. It's practical. It's ideal. It's ready when you are. The BladeLight is everything you need in a knife, redefined.
Powered by two AAA batteries, the BladeLight provides 35 lumens of bright white light, helping you to avoid juggling a flashlight in one hand and a knife in the other when darkness descends. The BladeLight also offers an IPX-7 rating for water resistance to full immersion (immersion time 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter). The clip point blade folds into a sleek molded GRN handle with liner lock.
This package also includes two batteries. All SOG products are guaranteed against defects in workmanship and materials for the life of the original purchaser.
Keeping your knife clean, dry, oiled and sharp are the primary defenses against corrosion, wear, and potential injury. Be sure to clean the blade and handle after each use--however, do not soak your knife in water. A mild solution of soap and water should remove any dirt and debris that may have accumulated during use (avoid harsh detergents such as laundry or dish soap, and chlorine products). To remove any debris from inside the handle you can use a toothpick for any visible lint or dirt, or a Q-Tip for smaller amounts of dirt and debris.
After cleaning or after exposure to moisture be sure to completely dry your knife blade and handle, taking special care with any sensitive handle materials. Use a soft cotton cloth or chamois and a small amount of moisture-displacing oil (such as WD-40 or 3-in-1), on the blade only, to prevent water spots and oxidation from forming.
Fingerprints and weather are the primary causes of rusting or corrosion on a knife blade. To keep your knife looking its best, SOG recommends that you give your blade a light coat of oil after each cleaning, and prior to long-term storage. Be sure to also apply a Paraffin-based oil to the pivot point, which will not only keep the action of your blade smooth but will repel dirt and debris which could impede the blade's action.
