I saw a sog knife (fixed blade) at Nashe here in Cebu. The price is P2,900, which is within my limit. I'm interested in buying it as my first knife. Can anybody provide me with any information about the quality of SOG knives? I'm not really into knives but i'm willing to try owning one. Thanks in advance!

I sure won't mind having an SOG Seal knife.. SOG knives are being issued to the US Navy Seals and the British SAS as their official knives.

WINNER of one of the most extensive testing and evaluation programs ever undertaken by the US Government for the Navy, the SOG SEAL Knife surpassed all others to receive the highest performance honors and become the chosen blade of the US Navy SEALs.

The US Navy SEALs are one of the most elite specialized military groups in the world. SEALs must undergo a rigorous training program devised to create the consummate warrior. Only a select few endure and are given the right to wear the SEAL Trident.

The knife needed to accompany a Navy SEAL must be just as worthy. The US Government's knife evaluation program included incredible tests that evaluated the following:


tip breaking strength
blade toughness
sharpness and edge retention
handle twist-off limits
two-week salt water immersions
gasoline and acetylene torch resistance
chopping
hammering
prying
penetration performance
cutting ability for six different types of rope and nylon line
low noise and low reflection factors
intense hands-on training in the field
You can be assured that on this extraordinary knife, the SEALs have done their homework, so you don't have to!
