SOG Knives Introducing Made In USA Line

SOG® Specialty Knives and Tools, is announcing a new line of knives completely made in the U.S.A.; with the initial products to be released in 2017, including a fixed blade, and three folders. This USA Made production series of knives from SOG showcase the superior materials used when creating these premium products – such as CPM S35VN steel and Micarta handles.

Banner, a fully equipped, heavy-duty folder with a SAT® assisted-opening CPM S35VN blade in a black Cerakote® coating housed in an anodized aluminum handle with steel liners. For a 3.5-inch blade, it weighs in at a relatively light 4.5 oz.

Strat Ops, is a heavy-duty folder with an automatic CPM S35VN blade, with a black Cerakote® coating, housed in a linen Micarta handle with stainless steel liners. Measuring 8.0 total inches, with a 3.5-inch blade, the slim Strat-Ops weighs 3.7 oz.

Tac Ops, a durable and sturdy folder with an automatic CPM S35VN blade, with a black Cerakote® coating housed in a linen Micarta handle with stainless steel liners.  With an overall length of 8.2 inches, with a 3.5-inch blade, the Tac-Ops is relatively lightweight at 4.6 oz.

Pillar, a fully equipped, full tang CPM S35VN steel fixed blade, with a stone wash and machine ground finish. This workhorse is built to handle any task. The canvas Micarta handle offers superior grip in wet or dry conditions and looks better the more it is used. Added with the Kydex sheath and adjustable low profile locking mount, this makes for a perfect choice for carry.

SOG will also be releasing a new line of multitools, folders, fixed and more during the show.

    Liking the Strat Ops..quite familiar to the Gerber covert folder I just picked up… except the pocket clip on this one looks more well placed..

    SOG has fallen very low since they lost what they were originally popular for like high quality bowies. They devolved down to gimmicky crap from Aisia over the last decade or more. Maybe this is what they need to get back in the game. I swore off SOG long ago, but that “Banner” looks pretty decent.

  3. ALAN says:

    What keeps me away from SOG is their steadfast insistence on branding every part of a knife, it is on the blade,the handle and the pocket clip. I am sure if they could find a way to put “SOG” on the screws, they would do it.

    They are the “Blackhawk” of the knife world.

    I wish they would keep their flagship piece in production, the SOG bowie, the original one of blued steel made of decent steel. Nothing fancy but it was nice. I haven’t seen one for years.

    Buck still has the 110 with some production improvements since its introduction in 1963. They still sell those, so much, that the 110 is synonymous with “Buck knife”.

    The original SOG bowie would be the same kind of thing.
    Heck- if they aren’t going to make it, maybe Buck could out of 420HC!
