The Twitch XL is not just a larger version of a Twitch. This is a high tech statement of sophistication with all the bells and whistles that you expect from the designers at SOG, including the SOG Assisted Technology. The fine construction comes together to make the XL one of the most practical and beautiful knives that SOG have ever handled. The blade is made from a Japanese medium carbon, high chromium stainless steel, which offers a good balance of toughness, edge sharpness and corrosion resistance.
SOG Assisted Technology works through the balance of opposing high-tension coil springs. As one opens the blade the force to propel the knife open becomes greater than the closing force and the blade will open on its own. The end result propels the blade out once the operator has initiated the one handed opening action. S.A.T. works so well that right handers can use their left hand equally well to open a folding knife (of course this works oppositely for left handers).
