This year has been a quiet and interesting Shot Show 2021. This amid the lockdowns and restrictions due to the pandemic. Shot was cancelled and reorganized into an online only event. During this week very few firearms, gear, or accessories released or announced. We do have SOG announcing their 2021 lineup for knives and multi-tools.

Let’s take a look and see what SOG has set for release in 2021.

Pentagon FX

SOG’s Pentagon FX system of knives is a highly capable and thoroughly modern solutions for users looking for a fixed blade duty knife. Includes our newly developed Universal Mounting System sheath design, that’s configurable to the mission needs of the user.

• Removeable single-fastener G10 handles
• Configurable Universal Mounting System

Terminus XR LTE

30% lighter than a standard Terminus XR, the Light Edition features updated handle and clip design, with carbon fiber liners to reduce weight. Terminus XR LTE features SOG’s super-strong XR Lock technology with and a TiNi coated, CRYO S35VN steel blade.

The LTE series swaps metallic liners for carbon fiber. Just as durable, but far lighter and easier to manipulate and carry. Utilizing high-strength carbon fiber components, LTE knives provide the best of both worlds — the benefit of a full size knife and a lightweight tool you can trust.

When you need to travel light, Terminus LTE lets you carry a mid-sized EDC without any extra weight. Sleek, understated, and built with some of the best materials available, Terminus XR LTE is one of SOG’s top choices for daily carry.

Carbon + Gold or Carbon + Graphite color options.

The Terminus XR LTE will be available this month and will retail at $139.95 MSRP.

Light Edition Kiku XR LTE

Light Edition Kiku XR LTE delivers a muscular, large-format folder in a welterweight upgrade. It minimizes weight — 1.5 oz lighter than the regular Kiku XR — yet maintains a rugged level of performance that outdoor users demand.

Kiku XR LTE delivers a statement of strength and nimbleness. With carbon fiber liners and spacer helping to shave 1.5 ounces off the standard version, this large-format folder is built around SOG’s ultra-strong XR locking mechanism, while the TiNi coated CTS XHP steel blade offers superior corrosion resistance and edge retention.

The Kiku XR LTE will also be available in January and will retail for $224.95 MSRP.
