SOG Knives: Forged Out Of Tradition, Hardened In The Field

About SOG Knives

SOG Knives was started by knife designer Spencer Frazer in 1986, when he first saw the Vietnam SOG Bowie, which was carried by members of the US special ops unit - the MACV-SOG. He started SOG Knives with the goal of reproducing the knife and the company expanded into a full line of innovative tools that have been field-proven by US Special Forces. SOG Knives has become synonymous with a high-tech modern image.

The American company has built trust with its customers over the years by delivering the highest possible quality at every level, which in turn, delivers products with good value and great function. The company prides itself in offering real-world confidence in its products through its deliberate, long-term design strategy of making essential tools that people can depend on.

Pillar Fixed Blade

SOG's fixed blade knives are based around CPM S35VN, a superior steel that offers improved toughness, better edge retention and higher resistance to wear while still being easy to sharpen. The Pillar adds a stonewashed finish to the premium steel, giving the full-tang, clip point blade an even greater resistance to showing use wear. The knife's handle is built of canvas Micarta, which gives a secure grip in wet or dry conditions, and it will actually look better the more it's used. The black handle features a glassbreaker pommel so that the fixed blade is ready to take care of business, no matter the mission. So that the knife is easy and efficient to carry, a tough Kydex sheath with an adjustable, low-profile locking mount is included. Bottomline, the Pillar is a big, burly, fixed blade that’s made for big jobs.

Seal FX Partially Serrated Fixed Blade

SOG Knives' line of Seal fixed blade knives is the professional's go-to solution and the Seal FX Partially Serrated Fixed Blade was absolutely built with feedback from the professionals. A Cerakote finish was used on the superior steel's partially serrated, clip point blade, giving it a 58-60 HRC. A glass-reinforced nylon handle provides a no-slip grip with or without gloves so that it's ready to perform anywhere. An easily-mountable Kydex sheath also comes with this knife. This Seal fixed blade is designed to meet the requirements of uniformed professionals around the world with strength and function for any situation.

Pentagon Blackout OTF Automatic

If you require a dependable one-handed, fast opening switchblade knife, the SOG Pentagon Blackout OTF Automatic was designed to meet your exacting demands. One of the features that puts SOG Knives' OTF knives ahead of the rest is their Dynamic Lock-Up System, which redefines open reliability and blade lock-up strength, moving quickly to the open or closed position and staying securely in place. The Pentagon automatic is easy to open with either hand because of its oversized opener button that allows for multiple interface points. The CRYO S35VN spear point blade shoots out of a non-reflective, hard-anodized aluminum handle that was built for years of hard use by law enforcement and military professionals.

Aegis Assisted Technology Tanto Knife

Going to adventurers and explorers for expert advice, SOG Knives designed and crafted the Aegis Assisted Technology Tanto Knife to be the perfect outdoor companion. It features SOG's innovative, ambidextrous Assisted Technology-XR Lock, which delivers fast, one-handed opening and a solid lock-up. It features a built-in, blade locking safety and a spine-mounted safety system. The assisted opening knife has a cryogenically, heat-treated D2 steel tanto blade and an ergonomic, glass-reinforced nylon handle that's grippy, making it especially well-suited for hiking, camping and hunting. Designed to be intuitive and utilize natural hand movements, you don't have to break your grip to operate the Aegis Assisted Technology Tanto Knife.

Blackout Kiku Assisted Opener

The Blackout Kiku Assisted Opener also has SOG Knives' patented XR Lock, which by the way, is able to withstand up to 1,500 pounds of force. The pocket knife blends form and function with its linen Micarta handle and Cerakote-finished, CTS-XHP premium steel blade that's corrosion-resistant and has excellent edge-retention. With a powerful styling that harkens to its Japanese DNA, the muscular SOG Blackout Kiku XR Pocket Knife makes a subtle statement of strength wherever it’s carried.
