The SOG Forge evokes a period in Japanese history when honor was the most highly coveted virtue: it was a time when everything was handmade with meticulous care. A good knife or sword was meant to last for life- and as such, The Forge is built using both traditional and modern methods. It projects a sense of elegance and sophistication at the same time. The VG-10 san mai blade is hammer forged creating the distinctive pattern and the handle is precisely fitted using a stepped topo design for exemplary balance and feel. Because no detail is overlooked, the sheath is as good as the knife - crafted in Japan from thick rich leather with a splash design stitched into its face. The SOG Forge is truly a beautiful collector’s item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully Crafted My wife bought me this beautiful work of art for Christmas 2013. Since then I have used this knife to do just about everything a knife is designed to do and it has NEVER let me down. The San Mai VG10 holds a wicked edge, the handle feels right and the sheath is rugged yet beautiful. A must have for your collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Knife!!! I think that you're knives are the best in the business! never been let down! :) my two favorites that I own are the Forge and the Trident 2.0 :) coolest knives ever, boasting excellent quality in the design, durability, sheaths, and the cost is great :) my forge did not come with a lanyard :( and I'm not sure if my trident is supposed to however it did not either which I believe would be a good little extra :) I love the sheaths except I was silly and cut off the strap when taking my knife out :/ but can not complain :) love the knives!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Knife! I used this for the first time in Wisconsin's bowhunting season. I field dressed two whitetails in one day. Very sharp, love the quality. The sheath is pretty good but wish is was made with a heavier, even thicker leather. Because I see myself using this knife a lot and want it to last! LOL! The only complaint I have is I wish the handle was a little big, I have larger hands, and I found field dressing the whitetails, cutting through the rib cage, was a little difficult. Only for finding the right leverage, which I'm sure will get easier with practice. Love everything else about this knife!
