Description

The SCUBA/DEMO is the rarest of the Special Forces SOG knives in existence. In fact, only one original is known to exist today. Originally, 39 were made and 38 of these were delivered to the Naval Advisory Detachment for missions on the North Vietnamese coastline. They were issued to OPLAN 34 ALPHA in 1964 at which time 36 were lost in operations and two were never seen again. Using current manufacturing techniques, we are now able to create a spectacular reproduction of this ultra rare knife, with a modern twist.

    Cryogenic Heat Treatment

    SOG's unique cryogenic heat treatment process slowly decreases the knife temperature to -300 F, then brings it back up to room temperature again. This process relieves the blade material on an atomic level, resulting in an overall increase in toughness and heightened wear-resistance. Additionally, knife edges stay sharper longer and demonstrate a significant decrease in micro-fracturing and edge-chipping.
