These knives and tools cannot be sold as new, but are in "new" condition. They may have small scratches or tooling marks, but nothing very noticeable and absolutely nothing that would impede the performance of the product. In some cases, the buyer might not even notice the blemish. In other cases, it may be more noticeable. There will be an assortment of items that did not pass quality control standards as well as items that have been slightly used and refurbished (bringing them to near-new condition).
Quantities are limited so call +1 (888)-764-2378 for information on currently available products.
Please understand that: All items are sold "as is" with the buyer fully knowledgeable that the blemish may be very minimal or more noticeable. There will be no selective handpicking of these knife purchases. Examples of defects are shown below. No returns on these items will be accepted.
Examples of SOG Factory Seconds (magnified)
The seconds stock changes daily. To find out if a specific model is in stock call or email the seconds department at +1 (888)-405-6433 x240 or info [at] sogknives.com.
SOG's warranty is void on any factory second that you purchase. But remember, these knives are structurally perfectly sound. No flaw or blemish will affect the product's performance.
Each second will receive a branding mark (an "SOG with an X inside the O," see images above), designating it as a second.
