I don't know if anyone else gets US Cavalry, but they carry a knife called the SOG SEAL Master, basically a big SEAL knife 2000. I was wonderingif anyone else has seen these anywhere else, i can't find them anywhere but in US Cav. I even looked on SOG's webpage.

I'm positive its not a Tigershark, or if it is they're misnaming it. Has anyone ordered one of these knives from them?

I don't know the "real deal" on that knife, but I've noticed it since it first appeared in U.S. Calvary. It's either an exclusive made for them or a misnamed Tigershark. I think it's the latter, but I'd like to know the real deal myself.

The Seal Master in U.S. Calvary is different than the Tigershark because Seal Master Has a 8 3/4" blade according to U.S. Calvary and the TigerShark has a 9" blade according to an article I read in this month issuse of Blade "Truck Knives:pointed Pards for the Pickup". But one of the those measurements could be wrong making it the same knife because its only a 1/4 inch in blade lenght difference.

The supposed "seal master" knife also has a partially serrated edge. I am not positive but I dont think the tigershark has a partial serration.

I don't think the Tigershark has serrations either, thats why I was interested in the SEAL Master instead of the Tigershark. I think in the interest of discovery, I'm duty-bound to buy that knife to see if its a previously unknown knife form, or a totally new breed. As much as I hate to buy yet another knife, I think I just have to do it. Yeah right, like I'm ever shy about getting another knife. Ha. Well, thanks for your help guys.

I asked a similar question a while back, it should still be in the "search" files. I'll try and see if I can find it

The new SOG Tigershark's now come with a serrated blade. U.S. Cavalry's web site shows the SEAL Master with a nylon sheath, the Tigershark comes with a leather sheath.

Here is the "SEAL Master Knife"
http://www.uscav.com/Shop/itemdetail.asp?item=18&stk_code=WA18124
which is basically a SEAL 2000 on steroids. The main difference between this one an the Tigershark is that the Tigershark is carbon steel and both SEAL's are made of 440A. The Master Knife has also the softer Kraton handle like the Tigershark. The SEAL 2000 has a very hard and durable Zytel handle.

I'm not quite sure for which application the Master Knife is supposed to be. In my opinion they just want to cash in on the SEAL name. For a dive knife (440A) it's way too big and has that junky Cordura sheath (they should use Kydex), for a general outdoor knife is the Tigershark a much better pick.

Thanks for the info guys. I've been wondering about that since they appeared in the catalog. I'm still looking for someone who actually has one though... If not that, anyone know where to find a good review?
