Whether you are looking for a hunting knife, tactical knife, an everyday carry knife, or a multi tool, SOG is sure to have something to suit your needs.

SOG Specialty Knives was started by Spencer Frazer in 1986 after he was inspired by a unique combat knife carried by a highly classified U.S. Special Ops unit called MACV-SOG during their time in Vietnam. Frazer’s mission was to reproduce the original SOG bowie knife. This then led to developing a whole line of innovative products.

One of the products new to our SOG selection this year is the SOG Blade Light Folder. This pocket knife has 6 led lights built in to the handle. The lights are on SOG Knifeeither side of the blade and provide a shadowless light while cutting. The lights can still be turned on while the blade is closed, which can come in handy in different situations. This knife is super functional and there isn’t really anything else like it on the market.

Another cool knife from SOG is the SOG Jungle Primitive Fixed Blade Knife. With a blade length of 9.5 inches and a partially serrated edge, this knife is perfect for using outdoors. The Jungle Primitive can be used as a machete, limb saw, and a hammer. It comes with a sheath so you can easily take it on your outdoor adventures.

If you looking for something a little more compact and on the creative side, SOG Snarlcheck out the SOG Snarl. Its like brass knuckles, but with a SOG knife. This knife also comes with a sheath that can be worn on your belt or around your neck to conceal your knife.

SOG has so many amazing products that are innovative and extremely durable. Each product is designed with function in mind. Whether your buying a SOG fixed blade, folder, tomahawk, or even one of their Dark Energy flashlights, you won’t be disappointed!
