Building upon SOG’s long tradition of honoring Japanese knife makers, the first folding knife designed by Kiku Matsuda, and an official production collaboration between SOG and Kiku Knives. One of the foremost tactical knife designers in Japan, Master Kiku Matsuda and SOG have won awards on collaborations before, and this knife should turn heads, too. The elegant linen micarta handle is rugged and easy to clean, while the AUS-8 stainless steel blade is set up for years of reliable service.
SOG originally stood for Studies and Observation Group, an elite joint services military group designed for covert operations in the Vietnam War. Sanctioned to develop and purchase their own equipment, SOG created a knife for use in one of the harshest environments in the world. It is in the spirit of this elite group that SOG Specialty Knives was founded.
Totally committed to creating the world's finest specialized knives and tools, SOG became the first knife manufacturer to expand its line to include a broad scope of fixed blades, folding knives and multipurpose tools. SOG has also announced the recent acquisition of Tool Logic, a market-leading provider of innovative compact card tools, knives and flashlights.
Each SOG product is created by Founder and Chief Engineer, Spencer Frazer. His patented inventions and unique, futuristic style have earned SOG many awards and Frazer the recognition as an industry innovator and premier designer.
Today, SOG products are distributed around the world and renowned for their uncompromising style and performance.
