SOG’s Salute…to old-fashioned value. Exciting design and excellent performance can still be affordable.
SOG’s first fusion tactical folder: Salute makes the cut…for genuine value. With a little perseverance, SOG engineers showed they could make a progressive, performance driven, and ultimately very satisfying knife for an affordable price. Take the machined G10 handles in combination with scalloped full-length steel liners for strength, exceptional comfort, a serious grip…and a whole new look. Add a big lockback, smooth-as-silk operation, and a proven Bowie style blade that looks sharp…and really is.
For good measure, SOG included a new invention—their patent-pending movable thumb stud that adjusts to fit your own hands. Of course SOG incorporated their trademark low carry bayonet clip. We think The Salute lives up to its name. It’s worthy of carry on any front in the world... including your own back yard.

is one of the oldest locks in use today. A lever on the back edge of the handle catches in the tang of the blade and locks it. To unlock, one presses on the back of the lever. Ambidextrous and safe to operate, the Lockback can be a great mechanism that locks your blade very securely.
is a very durable reinforced material that is made up of fiberglass soaked in resin, then highly compressed and baked.
