Doing some camping, hunting, or fishing at night? Then you know there's nothing more awkward than trying to cut something in the dark with your knife in one hand, while juggling a flashlight in the other. Please resist the urge to hold your giant Maglite between your teeth -- we have a better solution. 

If you're the kind of creep who spend a lot of time in the woods at night, the BladeLight from knife specialists SOG is the answer to your prayers. Besides featuring a top-quality, 5.7-inch stainless steel, clip point blade that'll handle just about anything you can throw at it, it's also got 6 LEDs molded into the glass-reinforced nylon handle, 3 on each side. So you not only get shadowless light when slicing and cutting (like when you need to know where the fish ends and your fingers begin), but the BladeLight can also be used as a flashlight, providing 25 lumens of bright white light—even while it's clipped into its molded protective sheath.


The sheath also comes with a belt clip, slots for securing to your leg or a pack, and there's even a small removable pouch to carry extra batteries. One press of the quick release retention, and the knife slides free, ready for use.


Powered by a single standard alkaline battery (two are included), the push button switch on the bottom of the handle seals with an O-ring, giving the BladeLight an IPX-7 rating for water resistance to full immersion up to one meter. Unfortunately you can't use it as a dive knife (that's a hint SOG), but for fishing in the shallows, and any other outdoor adventures, it'll excel.
