    Moving into folding knives, SOG Knives unveiled a Terminus XR and a Terminus XR G10 to chase the everyday carry (EDC) knife market with a modern flair. Both of these Terminus knives have a sleek, urban aesthetic and allow for 3 different opening mechanisms: thumb stud, XR lock or kick feature. You have your choice of a carbon fiber/G10 handle or a strictly G10 handle for dexterity and looks. Across those options you can get Black (carbon fiber/G10), Crimson (G10), or Olive Drab (G10).

    Both the Terminus XR and Terminus XR G10 weigh 3.2 ounces, have a 2.95″ CTS BDZ1 steel blade, and are fully-ambidextrous with a swappable belt clip. The biggest difference between the two similar knives is the price-point you are looking at:

    • SOG Knives & Tools “Terminus XR” – MSRP $77.95
    • SOG Knives & Tools “Terminus XR G10” – MSRP $55.95
