Knives in this series are super quick to open and a pleasure to hold. The great thing about this model is the handle is actually made form aluminum which makes it lightweight and so easy to handle.
The "Zoom" line is known for it's line of lightweight folding knives that open for action using SOG's patented Assisted Technology. This guy, The Mini, has a blade length of 3.15 inches, and is a snap to open with one hand! The aluminum handle keeps it light and nimble.
What exactly IS this Assisted Technology we keep referring? Basically, this technology works through the balance of opposing high-tension coil springs. As you initiate the opening action, the force then propels your blade open, becoming greater than the force keeping it closed. Basically, it results in a blade that springs open instantly once engaged, seemingly on it's own.
