LTE stands for “Light Edition,” and SOG's Terminus XR LTE is 30% lighter than the original at just 2.2 oz. The weight savings comes from the use of a combination of G10 and carbon fiber in the skeletonized handle and scales, and minimizing everything else save for the XR lock that holds the 2.95" CYRO CPM S35VN clip point blade into place after you kick it open with the flipper tab or thumb studs.

The design of the knife leans towards a sleeker and more slender profile, with the reversible deep carry pocket clip updated to be a bit stronger to ensure the knife stays secure in your pocket even at the lighter weight. But rest assured—the knife is still a serious contender as your next everyday knife. The blade length carries well in most locales, and can slice its way through most tasks thanks to a similar cryogenic heat treatment that gets it to an HRC of 60-62, finished in titanium nitride. And thanks to the new handles, this is one of the lightest and most robust knives you can carry yet.
