While you don’t have to spend a fortune on a knife, especially not one that you might drop overboard never to see it again, there’s no denying what a difference they can make. This is very evident with the SOG S95-N Tomcat 3.0. The Tomcat has had a reputation as a solid folding knife ever since SOG released it in 1988 and it won the Overall Knife of the Year award. The Tomcat 3.0 is the third iteration of the knife since then and, while it features a redesign, it still offers the same quality and durability.

The Tomcat 3.0 is a heavy duty knife, that is surprisingly light for its size. This makes it a useful tool to take along on fishing trips where you might also have to do some camping. The handle of the Tomcat 3.0 features a stainless steel construction with textured Kraton, which contributes to its light weight and also makes it easy to hold. It has a 3.75 inch blade with a plain edge that can provide clean cuts. This also means that the knife is quick and easy to sharpen if it ever starts losing its edge. SOG uses VG-10, which is high-end Japanese steel, for the blade to make it even more durable. Finally, to lock the blade into places, the Tomcat 3.0 features an arc lock. This is a premium locking mechanism that is ambidextrous, very strong and considered to be very safe.

With its exceptionally smooth opening action and great ergonomics, the Tomcat 3.0 definitely upholds the legacy of its predecessors. The price is obviously going to deter anyone who isn’t very serious about owning a high quality knife and the sheath could have been a bit bitter, but overall this is a top notch knife to own and use. The craftsmanship is simply excellent and this is a knife that won’t require replacing at the rate often seen with cheaper knives.
