Last week we got the first batch of SEAL Team Elite knives shipped out. We realize that this has been over shadowed by the iPhone launch and that is why it did not get all the media coverage we had expected.
If you have been waiting patiently for this knife it should begin arriving in stores very soon. Also, the SEAL Team Elite has received our new Croygenic Heat Treat process. See below for more infromation.
Cryogenic Heat Treatment
SOG's unique cryogenic heat treatment process increases the toughness and wear resistance of our blades. Taking the knife slowly down in temperature to less than -300°F and then back to room temperature. This stress relieves the material on an atomic level and increases overall strength as well as edge retention. Knife edges stay sharp longer with significantly less micro-fracturing and edge-chipping. Its this dedication to making your knife SOG sharp that sets us apart from the rest.
Look for the new Cryogenic Heat Treated logo on selected SOG Knives that have received this process.
