Hi all, I've been meaning to do this little review for a while. Full disclosure, I haven't used this knife much. Just normal stuff around the house like food prep, lots of cardboard, opening packages, and cutting various plastics. Now that the weather seems to have turned, it will get yard work and camp task duties. Also, let's get the cost out of the way. This knife is a bit on the expensive side from most retails. I will say that I found it more than $40 less after looking around a bit. Not a supporting dealer so I won't mention them, and they kind of suck any way. That said, the much lower price actually makes this knife quite a value considering what you get. You can look up the specs but the highlights for me are USA made, s35vn, kydex, and Micarta. It also just looks damn good. Some knives I have in similar sizes: So as you can see this is more of a tacticool, utility, field knife. It's not huge. About the same size as the Seal Pup. Cutting edge is almost exactly that of the CPK Field Knife. The handles are comfortable with one major exception. In the forward finger groove there is one extremely pointy spot and a bit of a sharp spot. I removed these and now the handle is very comfortable. Another issue I have is the huge pummel. It is just too damn big and sticks out way too much. I wish they would have brought it in a bunch. SOG's version of the Tek-Lok is a vast improvement in my book. Still not my cup of tea. I replaced it with a G-clip and carry it inverted CM style after tightened up the kydex a bit. I think those are the last of my gripes. I wanted to change the handle scales to a different color so I removed them and gave them a Rit-Dye bath. You can see the tang is full with no skeletonization. The fasteners are hex key. So now that I got the color I want, the handle shape comfortable, the sheath tightened, and the carry system I like, this thing is ready to go. Feels great in hand, carries wonderfully, and is actually a bargain from SOG (shockingly) considering what you get. Hope you enjoyed!
