We received this great comment over the weekend and I wanted to share it with everyone.
I currently carry the Penteagon Elite I every night as I am out flying over the Al Anbar Provence and I love it's easy use and reliability. I have used it to cut everything from cargo straps to wires and it is still running strong. I now want to upgrade to a strong fixed blade and a back up boot knife. Instantly I thought of SOG and didn't even check out all of the other brands that are out there.

I emailed him to verify that it was okay to post and here is his first comment and his response is below.
Certainly, it will be a privilege to have my comment about your excellent knives posted on your web page. After only being in country for two months, my Pentagon Elite I is the only "tool" that I purchased before coming over here that is still running strong. I have broken most of the tips off of my Gerber Multi-tool, my Inova flashlight has a crushed bulb, my Blackhawk kneepads and gloves are shredded, my Blackhawk SERPA holster keeps dropping my extra magazines, my Wiley-X ballistic glasses are gouged, my Camelbak leaks (although the MULE backpack is still taking a beating), and all of this just during the
first two months in a seven month deployment! As a tail gunner on the CH-53D, my nightly routine requires me to keep moving and my gear has to keep up, it is nice to know that I at least have a good sharp knife on my side! The only thing that I wish SOG had was a good emergency blade like Benchmade's 7 hook. I do keep one of those easily accessible on my
belt, even though I have not had the need to use it. All in all, I can not wait for my Daggert 1 and Mini Pentagon to arrive in the mail!
Thank you and Semper Fi,
SSgt Andrew Crissman
