SOG Specialty Knives – Brief History and Knife Reviews

The story of SOG’s inception began in Vietnam, where members of a highly classified U.S. special ops unit carried a unique combat knife into the jungle on covert missions. This special unit was known as MACV-SOG (Military Assistance Command, Vietnam – Studies and Observations Group) and its existence was once wholeheartedly denied by the US Government.
It wasn’t until long after the end of the war that the SOG story could even be told.

Years later, in 1986, that special knife inspired a young designer named Spencer Frazer to found SOG Specialty Knives. His mission, to reproduce the original SOG Bowie Knife and pay tribute to the special ops unit that created it.

What began as a single commemorative model soon became a full line of innovative tools field-proven by U.S. Special Forces and even honored as the Navy SEAL knife of choice.

Today, SOG knives are carried with confidence into the most demanding situations.
