SOG Tigershark Elite Knives TE02-N feature a distinctive removable handguard that's actually dwarfed by the knife's massive, extra-sharp blade. These SOG knives have an AUS 8 stainless steel blade that's 9" long, almost a quarter of an inch thick, and partially serrated. An extensive rasped back makes these knives great for notching, and they also give you leverage for demanding cutting jobs. SOG Tiger Shark Elite knives have touch point checkering all along their glass reinforced nylon handles which, with their shallow finger grooves, are highly ergonomic. The Tiger Shark Elite comes equipped with a nylon sheath from SOG Specialty Knives and Tools, complete with a small front knife accessory pouch that's great for paracord or a sharpening stone. Both the large steel handguard and the rear defensive point are totally removable for a more streamlined knife. For an imposing, powerful tactical knife that can tackle any demanding task you throw at it, military or otherwise, pick up the SOG Tigershark Elite Tactical Knife.
