    Got new SOG Slimjim XL today.

    I saw one in a store in Durango last week, did't like the $90 price, so ordered one on Ebay for $60 including shipping. Handle is a one-piece folded steel, only 1/4 thick at the rivets ,3/8 at the clip and blade toggle. Nice knife, assisted opening, ambidextrous (clip can be reversed) 4 inch blade, so thin and light it feels like its not in my pocket. I do have an issue with the blade lock's sliding safety lock, it seems to engage by itself when drawn from the pocket, preventing quick opening. I may pry that off later but will smooth down the teeth for now and see ow that works. Not my pictures,




    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    I like that. Does it seem flimsy under use?

    It seems tight, and the handle feels good because it's not small . I can wiggle the blade about 1/2 at the tip, same as my Bucks and Spyderco. The blade is just over 1/16 inch thick, so i wouldn't pry with it like my other tools. What I like most about it is the light weight and thin body does not add much to the load of junk I normally have in my pockets.
