Yeah Guardrail, i agree with you!
I agree with Hammer27. I don't care for the direction that SOG's fixed blades are going. They have some really nice looking folders now, but the fixed blades don't do it for me any more. The old SK5 Tigersharks were and still are a dream knife to me. I couldn't afford one when I discovered SOG 10+ years ago, and I can't afford the secondary market price now. I still think SOG's knives may be good quality, but I just don't care for the designs. For example, the Tigershark elite looks like something I would play Rambo with. I am a bit dissapointed that the original Seal Knife 2000 is no longer produced, too. Anyway, I guess if SOG never changes, the company will never progress. We'll see what else the future holds.
Even besides the ridiculous guard and pommel (not to mention the rasps and serrations) all that the Tigershark Elite is is a SEAL Team Elite stretched out. No design progression or ingenuity. Next time I find a SK-5 Tigershark with no serrations...its getting bought.
and really...how can you kill this?
A HANDGUARD???? A SCALLOPED TOPSTRAP???
People are asking that you make a TIGERSHARK OUT OF SK-5 Carbon Steel! The ones you used to make sell within seconds whenever they appear on ebay, and they sell for HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS!!!
Jesus, SOG, do I have to come over there and run your marketing department or something?????? How hard is it to figure out what people want???
Ford is now making a retro Mustang. Dodge brings back the Charger and the Challenger. Colt's best selling guns are their series 70 and WWI/ WWII reissued guns! And you would sell a BOATLOAD of Tigersharks if you would just make a solid, full tang knife out of SK-5 Carbon and forget about having your name carved into a USELESS handguard!!! It's a knife for survival, not a fencing weapon!!
WAKE UP, SOG!!!
One more time: TIGERSHARK, SK-5 CARBON, BIG, RUGGED, DEPENDABLE.
You want to save some money??? Discontinue about half of your line and make what will SELL!!
Here endeth the lesson!!
I sure hope someone at SOG listens to this. I remember drooling over the SOG brochures about 10-15 years ago. Not any more, though.
