I’ve not personally been a big fan of SOG knives but these past couple years they have stepped it up in a major way.I personally thought they had the most impressive lineup from the most recent ShotShow offerings.I personally liked the look of every knife they shown and they were all in S35VN..I’m really interested in their new Pentagon OTF,it looks like they’ve done a great job cutting the blade play that comes with the majority of OTFs..I currently have 4 OTFs,I started with the ridiculously cheap Lightning OTF because I thought OTFs were gimmicky but the cheap Lightning turned out to be more reliable than expected..then I bought a RavenCrest Tactical OTF for $70 before I knew they were rebranded DH Gate OTFs but it was still a step up from that Lightning OTF and gave me enough confidence in OTFs to fork out $300 for my Microtech Ultratech..then I also bought a Hogue Exploit which I personally like a little more than my Ultratech..with that being said,it’s been a while since I’ve bought an OTF and I’m about ready to get me another one..I will be considering this one and the SOG Pentagon OTF
Reading the OPs post was unbelievable from the get go. Vague refrences to a supposed company which has been part of the industry for a while and making an OTF in China, which in part of whole would technically be illegal her stateside, and big promises with a high price tag in the end that would rival most USA made OTFs. Sorry if my summary is a bit broad but that just sounds like a bunch of misinformed BS of a fantasy. To me any OTF out of China I can't see being priced in the range of a Hogue or Microtech no matter how good it is supposed to be.
