Despite the original Twitch II’s popularity as an EDC knife over the years—with its compact design and convenient assisted opening—it wasn’t suited for more formal occasions. SOG, known for their tactical gear, gave the Twitch II a makeover that’s more in line with a gent’s aesthetic on the Rosewood model.
A simple change of the handle from aluminum to rosewood takes the knife from tactical to dressy, resulting in an EDC that’s less likely to draw unwanted attention when you pull it out. And while the new handle looks good, it isn’t just for aesthetics. The woodgrain texture provides a better grip than the smooth aluminum handles on the original.
The Twitch II Rosewood keeps the same one-handed, assisted flipper operation and satin-finished, AUS 8 drop-point blade that earned the Twitch II a spot in many EDCs. The sub-3” blade length makes it not only less threatening , but also an ideal size for your daily tasks. If a classy gent’s carry is more your style, the rosewood refresh of this popular knife is worth a second look—grab it at the link below.
