SOG
 
In 1986, SOG began its journey making the SOG Bowie, a replica of a unique combat knife, and paying tribute to the Special Ops unit in Vietnam that created it. Now, all these years later, SOG is one of the world's leader in specialized fixed blades by offering superior performance, aesthetics, and confidence with every knife.

Based around superior CPM-S35VN steel, SOG's USA produced knives offer improved toughness, better edge retention, higher resistance to wear and edge chipping while maintaining ease of sharpening. The USA-made Pillar is fully-equipped with a full tang CPM-S35VN steel blade with a stonewashed and machine ground finish, canvas Micarta handles, and Kydex sheath with an adjustable low-profile, locking mount. This workhorse fixed blade is built to handle any task. The canvas Micarta handle offers superior grip in wet or dry conditions and looks better the more it is used. Combining all these features with a versatile Kydex sheath make it a perfect choice for your carry.

I remember the SOG of the 1990s
The fact that this SOG blade is made in the USA beckoned me to get it. I'm really glad I did. It is a beautiful knife. It's well designed, crafted, and finished. My only tiny complaint would be that it arrived with a teeny-tiny nick in the belly of the edge. I was able to hone it out though.This knife is basically a variation on the SOG Seal Pup. The blade is basically the same, although the Pillar uses better steel than the AUS-8 in the Seal Pup and this handle is much nicer. I am a big fan of Canvas Micarta handles. I love the way it feels in my hand. Canvas Micarta is especially good when the handle form is well designed like the Pillar. The index finger indentations in the pillar (for a forehand grip) are perfect. Thumb jimping on the spine is perfectly positioned. The pommel of the full tang has a lanyard hole and a kind of jimping that I've used to scrape my ferro rod. It works great. The pommel also lends itself well to painful tactical uses. Balance & weight are perfect too.I own an original SOG Seal 2000 with 440A steel from 1995, made in Seki-City, Japan. I've been disappointed in the Taiwan era of SOG knives. Anyone who owns a Japan-era SOG knows exactly what I mean. This USA-made Pillar reminds me of the good old knives SOG started out making.By the way, the sheath is very good too. I read that it scratched someone's Pillar. I have not had that problem. I would say that sheath was defective. Mine is fine. I love the adjustable DOTS clip of the sheath too. Very handy for multiple carry orientations.

Extremely TOUGH tactical/bush knife
The SOG Pillar comes razor sharp from the box. The steel is extremely durable, not difficult to sharpen, and does not buckle under hard use such as batoning wood. I don’t think it is really designed for that, but it does hold up without chipping, or the edge folding. Tip is also quite strong. The micarta handle isn’t going to corrode or break on you, will provide a sure grip even when wet. The sheath is top notch: it flips open to attach to a belt with ease, then allows you to lock it, so that the release doesn’t accidentally get pressed while hiking, etc. The sheath is made from Kydex, and there are several lanyard holes around the edge of it to allow it to be lashed in a variety of positions. The piece that the belt goes through is removable, and can be repositioned to allow the knife to be carried horizontally/“scout carry”. A previous review stated that the sheath squeezes the knife so firmly that it scratches the blade. The sheath does squeeze the blade firmly. There is zero rattling, and the blade will not fall out of the sheath even while running and holding it upside down. HOWEVER, the blade is about a 60 on the Rockwell scale, and the sheath DOESN'T EVEN COME CLOSE TO THAT. It is IMPOSSIBLE for the sheath to scratch the blade. I have pulled my knife in and out of my sheath dozens of times. NO SCRATCHES! It does make some faint marks on the highly polished part of the blade, but these are not scratches. I suspect the reviewer who made this claim got some kind of foreign material in his sheath (like sand) and this is the culprit. An excellent, durable blade that is made for tough work. I plan on buying a second one. Highly recommend!!

Incredible value, great tool
For a knife using this steel you can't do much better. Fits nicely in the hand, is quite sharp and attention to detail is obvious. My only issue is with the sheath, besides a molded lip to retain the knife, the sheath squeezes the blade firmly enough to scratch it. Brand new, with oil on the blade just a couple of times in and out of the sheath put serious scratches in the blade you can feel are quite deep with your fingernail. I can't imagine how bad it might get when dirt or sand get into the sheath. If this were not for gritty tasks I might consider returning but you really can't touch a blade of this size with this steel for this kind of money...
