Full information

For our first Fusion tactical folder we wanted something that was progressive and performance driven. The Salute is an acknowledgment that great design can still be affordable with a little perseverance. Take the machined G10 handles in combination with scalloped full-length steel liners for a whole new look. Add a big lockback, smooth as silk operation, and a proven Bowie style blade. For good measure, throw in our patent-pending new invention- a movable thumb stud so you can tailor the position to your own hands. We didn't forget to incorporate our trademark low carry bayonet clip either. The Salute lives up to its name and is worthy of carry on any front in the world... including your back yard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Knife This was my first SOG brand knife. I own a good many makes and models of knives. I think I have a broad perspective on quality vs cost. Usually my rule of thumb is if it comes in a blister pack or clam pack its a "no go". I got a gift card to a department store I rarely shop. I figured I would see what knives they offered. They carried SOG and one other brand. So I went with the SOG Salute. I can honestly say that side by side to a much pricier knife I own this knife is well worth what I paid. I have yet to see any reviews mentioning the butt of this knife and possible uses. In my opinion it makes for a great non-lethal option. I retired my EDC for this knife. The clip is tight enough to hold thin trek pants.This knife came razor sharp.I would recommend this knife to anyone. I have attached a side by side comparison of the salute and a $180 knife. Same scales different blade steel. I rarely review anything I buy. But I consider this to be one of few instances were you get more than what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Four years later! I'm so impressed with the Salute, I've owned my salute for just over four years. This knife can take it! I've used it to gut fish, whittle,process firewood,cut rope,zip ties,insulated wire of various types,plastic,cardboard,food,drywall, even sod! Never have I been let down! Lock up is still strong. No blade play. Detent is still strong. Manual deployment is absolutely reliable and still smooth and easy. With minimal maintenance. Cuts and cuts and cuts! This is the knife that sold me on SOG! Then the Seal pup, blew me away! Very capable knives of quality build,and materials. I paid too little, (REALLY!) I feel like these are lifetime knives!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid blade Unexpectedly had to skin a squirrel with this and it worked great. Sharp and holds an edge surprisingly well for the steel. Lockback is sold, you can trust it with your life. Great knife for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this knife I purchased this knife as a replacement to another big name brand that I have carried for years. I am very happy with this replacement. The knife has a good feel to it and is well balanced. When I purchased the knife I found a defect in the locking mechanism and contacted SOG about it. I sent my knife in for repair and they sent me a new knife. Sense then the knife has performed flawlessly. Great product from a great company.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from unhappy with the knife I bought this knife almost 2 years ago and a couple months shy of the year mark I have had to send it back because it no longer locked closed so they sent me a new one now I am a few months shy of the year mark and it is starting to do it again
