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.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Demo is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my top two knives I have used my Demo 2.0 for over a year in some very trying situations and it has proven itself to be more than a match for all challenges. The leather sheath has held up well also. Would not trade it for anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding edge and balance! This is one of the finest balanced knives I own, and wouldn't trade it for another. It has seen wear and tear in the field and has held its edge, never disappointing. Although the scabbard leaves some room for improvement, the knife itself is fantastic.
