Pros: Head Material, Balance, Construction, Weight, Handle Material
Every bit equal to the SOG
I own two of these now - also a SOG - and it seems to me the SOG is only considered the superior of the two because of the label. I've used both heavily (started out with the SOG based on Interwebz knife enthusiast gossip) and they're both great 'hawks, extremely sturdy, and durable. Only this one is 2 1/2 in. longer, has three head bolts instead of two, nice balance, feels good in the hand, holds an edge, and it is *so* much better looking. Oh, and cheaper. Went camping recently and a buddy went on and on about SOG superiority. After comparing the two, he was jealous of mine. Said he felt swindled haha. For the money, it's one of the best 'hawks around, and superior, to me, than the SOG in every area.
