    Hi guys. I would like to share some pics of a knife I recently picked up and have some questions about. I know that it was made by Tak Fukuta in Japan and that is a SOG pattern knife. What I would like to know is approximately when was it made and what kind of steel was used? Is it rare? I haven't been able to find much info on it. I paid $315 for it. How did I do? Thanks in advance.

    Also, it is not very sharp but apparently not from use . Is there a reason for this and should I sharpen it? Thanks again.

    FYI, that is not a SOG brand knife but a SOG-style knife made by Tak Fukuta for Jim Parker. There's a lot of information out there about both gentlemen but Tak Fukuta generally made some pretty nice knives.

    As to why it's not sharp, I have no idea. As for it's value I don't know but I wouldn't be allowed to tell you even if I knew. :)
