Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Have a blessed holiday.
The history of the Vietnam conflict is complicated, and much of what happened during that time is still being debated by both those who lived through it and those of us who live in the war's shadow. But what can't be denied or debated is that in addition to remarkable acts of heroism and valor, the necessity of combat drove the invention of knives and gear so efficient that they're still used in the field today. That legacy is what explains the power and the appeal of SOG knives. Forged in the fires of Vietnam and inspired by those who served and the unique challenges of jungle warfare, every SOG product is a tribute to the members of the special forces who took on the most dangerous missions and never stopped fighting for their country.
Named, in part, after the Military Assistance Command, Vietnam - Studies and Observations Group (MACV-SOG), the original SOG knife was a specialized Bowie carried by members of this elite US special ops team whose very existence remained classified for years after the war. In 1986, as stories of the group began to spread, a knife designer named Spencer Frazer set out to reproduce the SOG Bowie, only a few of which are known to still exist. Frazer's knife, widely considered to be an exact replica of the original, was intended as a tribute to the bravery of the men of SOG, but from that single commemorative blade grew one of the most respected lines of knives, combat and survival gear in the world.
Anyone can build a knife and claim that it's similar to what special forces use, but SOG knives have the rare distinction of being the knife-of-choice of US Navy SEALs. We can stand by the hype of SOG knives because they have been there, in the hands of American warriors, and have been proven in the most extreme conditions imaginable. If you are driven to fulfill the mission, then you can count on SOG knives to do the work and succeed.
SOG knives are more than just Bowie knives and Vietnam-era replicas. They lead the way in innovation and design, with over two dozen lines and hundreds of variations purpose-built for just about any situation. In terms of versatility and function, the SOG multitool puts other multitools to shame with more features and more power than almost anything else out there -- a perfect gift. The bestselling SOG tomahawk is more than an intimidating weapon, it's a multipurpose tool that can overcome countless obstacles in the field with speed and precision. But for those of you looking for the ultimate folding knife, you can't beat the speed and power of the SOG Trident or any selection from the SOG assisted opening series.
