SOGTE02: Tigershark Elite
SOG® Knives

In the presence of the revised Tigershark series, one’s pulse quickens. It is instantly recognized for its signature handguard and defensive rear point, which are removable for a more streamlined look. But it is also familiar as the largest member of the SEAL series with precise grind lines, rasped back, touch point checkering, and superior ergonomics. The Tigershark is capable of chopping and slicing with an economy of scale and ferocity not available to smaller knives. Still, it’s impeccable balance and style create fluidity in the hand that is unexpected and thrilling.

NOTE: Handguard and rear point are packaged separately, and are also removeable at any time (pictured).

The Absolute Best Knife For Survival, Combat, More Survival, More...
After being absolutely smitten with my brand new SOG SEAL Teams S37-K (Regulay Powder Coated Blade), I bought my brand new SOG Tigershark Elite knife. I'd been looking for an awesome survival, combat, and all-around knife for some time. I did not want to pay the high dollar amount of at least $650 for First Blood high quality copy knife again (First one had high SK-5 carbon steel, and it broke at the handle), but I had no choice and was about to buy one from Blackstarr Knives (Better choice of steel and handle makings, of course), when someoen told me why not check out the SOG Survival Knife. I searched and searched for that knife but nothbing would ever come up. Then they told me what it was called and I looked it up, and right there, I Found My Long Sought-After high quality knife. With it being the biggest and baddest one of its SEAL Teams SOG family, I knew it was exactly what I had been looking for, and trhen some. With its full tang blade, there's just absolutely No Worry whatsoever of it breaking at the handle. And a bladesmith that I had met and befriended told me that SOG makes the best knives around. He said their steel is tempered just right, and their accessories suck as the Tigershark's handguard is also made with high quality materials. He said that brands like Buck, Cold Steel, Ontario, Case, and others could only Dream of having the quality in their knives that SOG has in theirs. Each type of SOG knife is put through extreme tests according to what they are meant for. All of their SEAL Team knives such as my Tigershark Elite go through extreme tests, including massive survival and combat tests, fire tests, salt water immersion tests, chopping tests, and expecially flesh cutting tests. MY bladesmith friend, who has been making knives and other things like swords and such for over 30 years, has shared with me not even an ounce of his knowledge of knives and steels. Although it is just a Hint of what he has learned and knows, he sure has taught me a lot, especially about what to look for in a high quality knife, and the SOG knives I have bought so far have everyone of these traits that he has told me about, I just absolutely love my new SOG Tigershark Elite knife. I even just went and chopped a small tree in half and chopped it with the slightest of pressure. And it chopped it like no tomorrow!! I thought I would look at my knife after that and see a bend or crack or strress mark in the blade, especially on or around the edge of it, but Nope! Not even the slightest scratch did I see. And then i even came back inside and went to slice another tomato, which I had already done to check out the sharpness (Slicing right through a tomato means a knife is very sharp, but when it squashes the tomato insides out or just mashes it, means the knife is not sharp at all! Well, after the tree chopping test and it passing, I ernt to slice another tomato, and it sliced it like no tomorrow! I went to slice a piece or so of writing paper, and it sliced through that betetr than scissors could have ever done!If you want a little sissy knife, uy a Buck or Schrade or others similar. But if you are a man and demand a Man's knife as well as the high regard and bow-down type respect of a true Man carrying a Man's knife, then the SOG Tigershark, Tigersdhark Elite, and S37-K and K Elite are truly the Man's knives to carry and beat. Tigershark and Tigershark Elite Demands and Commands respect, and when you see a Man carring one, you had damn sure better be prepared to bow down and give him that respect; Kiss his Tigershark Elite knife's blade if you have to; suck it if he points it at your mouth and tells you to; but whatever you choose, you had better choose some way to show him and his Tigershark Elite knife admiration and respect! I might be coming around with my Tigershark Elite, and when or if you see me, you had better bow down in respectable slave-type gesture of me and my awesome knife! Thanks

Cons: Finish
A good combat knife
I am disappointed with sog's finish. My knife came with the part back of the handle, where rear point fits, seem that has been sanded showing the metal without black tini finish.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
SOG Tigershark
This is a really great knife. It comes sharp, has very good balance and heft, the handle is ergonomic and has plenty of length to it, and the finish holds up very well against wear. The only problem with the package is the sheath will not work properly if the d guard is not installed. You can easily remove the knife without undoing the retention strap. Besides the sheath being a complete failure in that respect, the knife itself is a 5/5.
