    Hello, Andy:

    I have a very small amount of experience regarding the actual, original SOG knives. However, I am aware that there are several versions of those knives and sheaths.

    Take a look at this website for more information: http://www.militaryfightingknives.com/collection.html#SOG

    Regards,
    d-1

    If its an original blade used by the MAC/V/SOG, the sheath must must be newer, just looks too good to be that old, even if it were never used. But I may be wrong. Love the blade my Brother!

    I also think it is an original sheath, but the condition is pretty good compared to the knife.

    Sorry for digging out an old post guys and girls. Just wanted to say the the sheath is original, so is the knife. These sheaths is usually found with the 5th Special Forces Mess Association SOG knives. The knives came either with Aluminum fittings (Guard & Pommel) or Iron fittings.

    Best regards
