SOG really made a mark in the knife industry with their SEAL Pup, the knife literally has a cult following. Enter the SOG FX TANTO, I am expecting SOG fanboys and fixed blade fanatics to be drooling at the mouth for this one.
I’m personally a fan of American/Modified Tanto blades, so this one is right up my alley. Made in the USA out of strong CPM-S35VN Stainless Steel, it should be pretty hard to break off the tip with normal hard use. If you are not a fan of Tanto style blade but like the overall design, spend not a minute worrying as it is also available in a drop point.
Complete with a Kydex sheath, I think SOG made a pretty good decision by adding this model to the lineup.
