Our humble beginnings:
The ‘SOG Knives Collectors’ site was started by a group of SOG collectors and fans from Bladeforums.com who were very into the high quality ‘Seki Japan’ SOG Knives. It was started due to the fact that there was no available book of reference for SOG Collectors/hunters and users, very unlike other knife companies like Case, Randall and Spyderco. People who collected rare SOG production models or users who wanted to sell their old SOG knives had no where to turn to when they wanted to find out the value of their knives or more information on them. It was evident that as time passed, users’ posts on knife forums went into the archives, pictures showing SOG knives on forums gradually disappeared to a disappointing red “X” as users either deleted the pictures or shifted them, breaking the links. People who wanted to find out more about their SOG knives had to embark on a tedious task of searching endlessly through archives and broken links.
Some forum members began asking the SOG representative (who was serving as the moderator of the SOG forum) in 2001 if there was going to be a compilation in a hard copy book form or online site of SOG knives, past and present. No plans were made and no book nor site has materialized after all these years… till our SOG Collectors site was set up. Various SOG collectors, after representative contacting SOG Specialty Knives, decided to build up this website from scratch to serve as a reference for SOG knives and designs, creating the SOG Knives Collectors website. It will serve as the Official SOG Collectors Club for fans of SOG who appreciate and own the discontinued SOGs.
