SOG-TAC AU Compact 2.94-Inch Tanto Straight Edge Cryo D2 Blade Folding Knife with AU-XR Lock

With a textured aluminum handle and Cryo D2 blade, the SOG-TAC AU Compact is a fast-opening folding knife that springs to action with either hand and stays open with exceptional lock-up strength thanks to SOG’s advanced AU-XR Lock. An American-made switchblade, it's a muscular go-to and backup tool for the military, first responders, and defensive carry users who will appreciate the reliable double-action safety.

From Safe to Go In One Pull

Innovative blade lock-out that allows you to go from safe to blade open in one pull, with SOG’s double-action safety.

Compact Design

Made for those who require lower visibility or just need a more compact tool, the smaller size, and lighter weight allow for a more discreet carry. The SOG-TAC AU is a wholly modern solution to a hard-use, automatic-duty knife. It features SOG’s strong AU-XR locking mechanism, Cryo D2 steel, and rapid opening.

Cryo D2 Steel

A versatile high-carbon tool steel cryogenically heat-treated to SOG’s unique performance specifications. D2 provides the ideal combination of edge retention and durability for long-term use with ease of maintenance.

Micro-Textured Handles

The SOG-TAC AU’s aluminum handle has a machined micro-textured surface that provides the right level of grip in all the right places without wearing out your hand or your pocket.

Double-Action Safety

Integrated into a single interface, the double-action safety prevents accidental blade deployment while still delivering a sure, consistent on-demand opening.

Ambidextrous Design

It has a swappable belt clip, and the AU-XR lock accommodates left- and right-handed users.
