SOG is to tactical knives what Armani is to suits — they may not be the absolute best in the world, but everyone looks to them to come out with the next big thing before leaping upon it themselves. The Fatcat has the look of one of those soon-to-be-copied blades.

The Fatcat is similar to the SOG Tomcat expect it’s larger. It’s actually the most massive folder SOG has ever come up with, and they say it’s not really intended for large-run production — which, from what we can tell, is a shame. They make the handle of solid machined titanium, and the blade is dual-tone TiNi coated. The Arc-Lock system holds the 4-1/2″ blade in place. Did we mention the whole knife only weighs 8-1/2 ounces?

It’s a looker and sure to be functional if you can get your hands on one. The limited run means the buy-in is high at $575, and that’s steep even for a SOG — it still looks wicked, though. The Fatcat should be hitting select stores this month.

    I’ve had a few Sog’s, they are great knives. Used to sell them and never had anybody make any negative comments.

    I’ve got their, “Switchplier”, an even better fit for toolmonger, if a little long in the tooth. Along with the pliers, I find myself using the fine and coarse files often, and the 1/4 bit driver is handy.

    The switchplier is a little heavy, wish they’d make a new model in Ti.

    SOG’s good stuff, no doubt. I like my Tomcat, but this one’s out of my price range.
