SOG Knife Page

Here is another example of a knife made for collectors that is very difficult to find and very expensive when you do find one. The perfect circumstances for a reproduction knife. Marketed as a repro and marked as such these knives will end up on a table at a show with the markings removed and asking for big bucks. Below are some detailed photos of the prototype knife, be warned. These are pretty large files so click on the thumbnails and wait a bit.

If you see a SOG knife with an indentation in the ricasso walk away quickly, that is a sure sign the markings were removed. Look for signs of tampering with the pommel also, it is lightly stamped India back there. The stone pocket has the typical Indian starburst peening around the male snap. All are dead giveaways to this repro.
