Sometimes all it takes to get the job done is no-frills, utilitarian knife without all the bells and whistles. And when that’s the case, you shouldn’t have to pay more for features you might not need. That’s what SOG’s newest knives aim to do: deliver the essential SOG knife experience at a more accessible price point. The Aegis FLK debuts as a budget friendly, entry-level version of one of SOG’s best tactical knife designs. With its full metal construction, fast deployment and practical blade, it delivers excellent value for new EDCers and veterans alike.

While the Aegis FLK serves as a budget version of one of SOG’s best models, it still packs EDC-friendly features you won’t find even on its premium predecessor. For starters, the Aegis FLK opts for a fully manual deployment as opposed to the original’s assisted open. To give it that smooth, quick deployment, SOG equipped the FLK with a rear flipper tab as well as dual thumb studs. It’s an excellent alternative for EDCers who can’t carry assisted knives but still want fast access to their blade.

Unlike the original Aegis’s piston lock, the FLK secures with a more familiar frame lock built into the knife’s stainless steel handles. The blade itself closely resembles the original, measuring 3.4” long with a plain edge and 8Cr13MoV steel. Its drop point shape, full belly and flat grind make it a practical slicer with plenty of cutting edge to work with. Jimping on the spine and lock bar add grip to an otherwise sleek handle, while the flipper tab also acts as a finger guard to let you really grasp the knife.

The Aegis FLK features a deep, tip-up carry pocket clip to manage the knife’s 5.2 oz weight, as well as a slim profile to easily slip into the pocket. If you’ve been wanting to try a SOG knife on a budget and prefer a sleeker style to their other offerings, the Aegis FLK is definitely worth a look, especially with its low cost of admission.
