SOG was born in the year 1986 as a result of the inspiration got by Mr. Spencer Frazer from MACV-SOG, the members of a highly classified US special ops unit who carried inimitable combat knives into jungle on covert assignments. SOG was founded with a simple mission to reproduce the original SOG Bowie knife and honor the makers of the knife. The name SOG itself was kept as an honor to the MACV-SOG. The acronym SOG stood for Studies and Observations Group. The company claims that their knife blades are of superior sharpness, styling, feel and balance. Forces like US Navy SEALs choose to carry SOG knives with them.
