View Full Version : Sog
what do you guys think of the SOG knives. have been becoming a knife junkie lately and got a good deal on a SOG twitch xl. wondered if i bought a decent knife or not.
I cant say yea or neh on the twitch XL since I have not had one yet. I had a twitch II and like it alot but it did not fit my hand very well. I have a Spec elite1,seal pup and Aegis now and all are good quality blades. I have had a Flash II also which I also recommend. SOG makes good knives. They have took alot of heat lately since alot of their knives are made in Taiwan now but I have Japan,Taiwan and USA made SOGs and I cant really tell a quality difference. They are diversifing their lineup a bit which is good and their marketing is improving. I just found out the other day that the LOWES down the street from my house is a SOG dealer.
I only like the nion-imported models
Twitch II and Flash II here. Like 'em both.
I like SOG knives in general. My only issue is what they did to the Desert dagger (discontinued and replaced with Daggert).
They changed the steel and the handle material, threw the balance of the blade off and with a dagger balance and pointablility is everything (IMO at least)
My rant aside:
I have 4 (or more) SOG blades, love every one of 'em and would not consider selling even one of them.
I quite like them and have bought a few in the last couple of years;
Seal Team Elite
3 versions of the Trident
Spec Elite II
Pentagon Elite II
One of the Bowies and another folder I can't think of.
Two of my favourite knives in the collection are SOG's Desert Dagger and Night Vision.
thanks for the replies! i am liking this folder really well so far.
I have owned a few straight blade SOG's, all from Japan, and I really like them alot. A buddy of mine picked up one of the Tawain ones, and comparing them side to side I prefer the Japanese over the Tawain.
SOG also makes pretty much the best multi-tool I have ever used. Heavy as hell but all SS and compound leverage make it very hard to beat. Leatherman's have a better can opener though...sigh. I do alot of hiking and camping, so I beat the crap outta my gear, SOG is always a good choice in my book. Enjoy. :)
I've got a Topo Meridian I'm very happy with. Friend has a Twitch XL, he loves it.
Bought my wife a Blink-she carries it all the time.
For the price-point, SOG is hard to beat.
I have a trident tanto that I really like a lot.
I have a simple SOG Gentleman, that I like very much.
I have a trident combo edge with the tiger striping that I bough used off of here. Great knife! I love it and carry it daily. I am a piss poor knife sharpener, but am able to keep an edge on this one.
Now I want to duracoat my Glock 30 to match the tiger striping on my my SOG....
BTW, I do not know where it was made as all I have is the knife itself and it does not indicate.
This might help...

I have a TiNi handled little Flash I I carry when I'm "dressed up" (tie). My black plastic handled/black bladed Flash II is clipped in my support side uniform pants pocket (my "kind sir, please pardon me as I encourage you to reconsider trying to relieve me of my duty firearm" knife) and my Pentagon Elite II is my EDC knife (for well over a year).
For a large knife, it really carries easily.
I ordered a SOG Field PUP for my Chirstmas present. Fine little fixed blade knive, holster that came with it kind of sucks.
Got mine from Rocky National for $40 shipped.
I have had a seal team elite and a couple seal pup which were awesome fixed blades. I have had a few Flash IIs a twitch 2 and a spec elite 1, the twitch was the only one I did not like much maybe due to its size but still a quality piece for its purpose.
