When SOG Specialty Knives and Tools first opened for business in 1986, they had only one knife to their name, a commemorative knife that was modeled after the original SOG knife used in Vietnam. Their second knife, the original Tomcat (which the SOG Tomcat 3.0 is an evolution of), was named the Overall Knife of the Year by Blade magazine in 1988. Today, SOG Knives sells dozens of professional-grade knives for a number of pursuits, from tactical operations to wilderness hunting. Their folding knives use powerful locking and spring release mechanisms for vigorous blade release and virtually fail-proof safety. Fixed blade SOG knives are sturdy and made for the toughest jobs. All blades by SOG Specialty Knives are built from some form of stainless steel, whether it's the simple dependability of AUS 8 or the diamond-hard VG-10 steel. And each blade is incredibly thin, sharp, and guaranteed to last a lifetime. SOG Specialty Tools also builds several different multi-tools, the most popular of which is the PowerLock series. SOG multi-tools package screwdrivers, bottle openers, and even a blade sharpener into an easy to open, effective to use package. For reliable knives and tools that won't let you down, no matter what environment you bring them in, choose a product by SOG Specialty Knives & Tools.
