Yes, we’re already in April, but the sheer amount of new knives this year means we’re still showcasing them on the blog. The good news is that most of these knives are now on the market, so you don’t have to wait.
This week, we’re looking at the array of new products from SOG Specialty Knives.
First up are two new fillet knives: a 6-inch fillet and a 7.5-inch fillet. The steel is 5Cr15MoV. They come with hard-molded nylon sheaths.

The Zoom series is a new family of knives that are designed to be lightweight folders with assisted opening. They have AUS-8 steel and anodized aluminum handles. The regular version has a blade length of 3.6 inches while the Zoom Mini has a blade length of 3.15 inches.
Some of the versions have Tanto points and/or black TiNi coating on the blade. Here’s a look at each iteration.

Another new family is the Toothpick family. As of right now, the two iterations feature either a satin finish or black TiNi finish on the partially serrated blade. The blade length is 3.1 inches and the steel is made from quality San Mai VG-10 steel. It uses a new locking mechanism from SOG.

Next is the SOG Instinct. The most basic version is a compact fixed blade without any handle scales. The overall length is 5.9 inches, and the whole knife has a satin finish. Since it’s meant to offer multiple carry options, there’s a smaller version and two with G10 handles.
