Five years after releasing the original, non-locking Terminus, SOG is returning to that model for a refresh and line expansion. The new Terminus SJ and SJ LTE freshen up the slippie design, bringing it in line with the locking models that followed.
The Terminus XR is one of SOG’s most popular recent models – so popular, in fact, that it’s easy to forget the Terminus line actually began in 2017 with the release of the original Terminus, an earlier entry in the now very crowded, certifiably trendy modern slipjoint category. When the XR models followed, they cleaned up the design itself in addition to adding in SOG’s proprietary, ambidextrous XR lock, making the original Terminus feel just a tad outdated.
These two new Terminus SJ models have a look much more in line with their XR predecessors, with cleaner smoother lines all over. The 2.9-inch blade is a middle width drop point which takes to EDC like a duck to water. Not only is the blade non-locking, but it is also two-hand opening only, so no flipper tab here – just the enduring, crescent-shaped nail mark.
I am looking forward to seeing the post-GSM acquisition SOG lineup in person at Blade Show.
