SOG Specialty Knives has made their name from the creation of exquisite reproduction military knives. Founders Spenser and Gloria Frazer first began SOG in 1986 with a release of the reproduction SOG knife made for the covert Studies and Observations Group during the Vietnam War. Now as well as military style knives, SOG creates other styles of knives and multi-tools to serve professions like firemen and police forces, that require a quality, dependable blade.

Their new release is the SOG Fielder Folding Knife FF38-CP ($14,50). The handle is black G-10 material with silver bolsters that suits the 3.3″ 7Cr17 stainless steel blade to perfection. With reliable one-handed opening, a belt clip, and a straight, easily maintained edge, this light 4.4 ounce, ergonomically designed 7.8″ long folding knife is also surprisingly affordable. Utility is important in a working tool but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice good looks to get it. The Fielder is ready to serve you for years at less than the price of a good restaurant meal.
