Lynnwood, WA. – SOG® Specialty Knives and Tools, has announced the release of one of the most functional mini folders there is. The newest member of the BladeLight family, the BladeLight Folder Mini, is both a flashlight and a knife; with super bright LEDs on both sides and an easy to open blade. It’s a smart and easy-to-use touch of illumination for in-the-dark activities.
Utilizing powerful and popular CR2032 lithium batteries, the BladeLight Folder Mini sends 45 total lumens from two LEDs on each side of the blade, for shadow-less light. With the blade folded, it can be used as a go-to flashlight for impromptu nighttime excursions.
In addition to freeing a hand (or mouth, for those who often-times carry their light in their teeth) from another light source, this eliminates shadows that would otherwise occur if using a headlamp or flashlight when cutting in low-light situations – making it safer and more efficient for anyone to use.
The BladeLight Mini Folder is rated at IPX-4 for water resistance, suitable for use on a boat or near water. The glass-reinforced nylon and aluminum handle gives it a durable feel while the simple, yet time-tested liner-lock locking mechanism keeps the blade open and enables one-handed closing.
“SOG provides knives, tools and lighting solutions, tailored to our customers’ needs,” said Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Nando Zucchi. “We take pride in delivering top-quality and innovative products while meeting the demands of a variety of individuals. The BladeLight Folder Mini brings our trusted knives and lights into one useful and versatile source.”
The BladeLight Folder Mini’s blade has a clip point shape, and measures 3.0-inches in length. Folded, the knife measures a compact 4.0-inches, bringing the overall length to 7.0-inches.
