After speaking with the good folks from SOG Knives they stated that this blade should be shipping and available to consumers in October of this year. The production is going to be fairly limited at first so those who may be interested will not want to sit on the fence very long, if at all. SOG Knives also shares this Press Release statement off of their website as we inch closer day-by-day to them becoming available:
Designed and optimized in consultation with professional users, SEAL XR provides the feel and functionality of a SEAL knife in the form of a large format folder. Built from GRN and S35VN steel, SEAL XR is an extremely durable knife, with high corrosion resistance and edge retention. Featuring SOG’s XR Lock, it’s also fully ambidextrous, smooth, and quick to open. With all this, SEAL XR truly is a folder made for the pros.
The fixed blade Seal knives from SOG are tremendously popular and this new Seal XR folding iteration will undoubtedly be a great seller as well.
