Lynnwood, WA. - SOG® Specialty Knives and Tools, is excited to announce a new line of knives completely made in the U.S.A. The initial products to be released in 2017 include a fixed blade, and three folders.
For this product line, SOG brought together a collective of artisans and engineers to achieve increased production, new styles and materials, while offering improved toughness, better edge retention, higher resistance to wear and edge chipping.
This USA Made production series of knives from SOG showcase the superior materials used when creating these premium products – such as CPM S35VN steel and Micarta handles.

For 30 years, SOG has produced some of the most trusted line of knives and tools, used by Special Forces groups all over the world. The new line of USA Made tools falls in conjunction with SOG moving its shipping and fulfillment facility to Kentucky.
“Given our heritage, it is important for us to be producing knives in the USA once again,” stated SOG Director of Marketing, Chris Cashbaugh. “Our new CEO, Joe Mc Swiney, brings with him a proven background of domestic manufacturing, so the expansion of SOG’s manufacturing capabilities comes at a great time for us. Starting with these four knives, we intend to continue our development of USA-made products and increase opportunities to produce knives using domestically sourced materials, like the quality Crucible Steel’s S35VN stainless steel we’re using in this initial effort. “
The USA line of knives will be available to view and test at SOG’s booth (#425) during the 2017 SHOT Show in Las Vegas.
Taking its name from an elite Special Forces military group from the Vietnam era – the Studies and Observation Group – SOG was founded in 1986 by designer and toolmaker Spencer Frazer. SOG has gone on to produce the favorite models of specialty knives and tools used by the military, law enforcement, industrial tradesmen and outdoor enthusiasts worldwide.
