    Just bought a SlimJim XL and the listed weight everywhere is 2.7 oz so I weighed mine up and its 3.2 oz
    I think SOG needs to update their specs, for some people weight is the deciding factor when purchasing a knife.

    Its a really nice looking knife. I have been thinking about one. How do you like it?

    I had mine for a day then sold it. It was hard to deploy but probably had to be broken in. I didnt like the feel of it and the fact you need to lock it on top or else it loosens when you grip it. But it was super sharp and sexy and the clip is awesome. I suggest you try the smaller version.

    Really good information to know. I was also a bit concerned about the comfort of the handle. I think I'll stick with the Flash II for EDC.
