SOG Lifetime Warranty
All SOG products including knives, tools, gear, and packs are guaranteed against defects in workmanship and materials for the life of the item. Our products are designed to last when used as intended and properly taken care of. In the rare, unforeseen instance when something goes south, we want to make sure that you are taken care of. Any item that happens to be defective will be repaired or replaced at our discretion. All you need to do is get it back to us and we’ll take care of the rest.
We do have lifetime warranties, but keep in mind that this warranty does not cover an item that is damaged by misuse, abuse, improper maintenance, alterations, accident, or normal wear and tear as determined at our discretion. So don’t go using you knife as a screwdriver, your multi-tool to split rocks, or your pack to contain a wild hyena. In other words, use common sense and don’t do stupid things.
Knives, multi-tools, gear, and other sharp pointy items should be maintained properly with routine cleaning, oiling, and sharpening. Blades are cutting utensils and are not for prying or other applications outside of its intended use. For more information on keeping your knife or tool in tip-top condition check out our Knife & Tool Care page.
Packs should be cleaned routinely to remove dirt and foreign materials and substances that may increase wear on the material. You don’t want your friends or enemies smelling you before they see you.
Take care of your SOG. SOG will take care of you.
SOG knives are designed and made to be used. Any knife being used regularly will need occasional sharpening. Unfortunately, we have not figured out how to make a knife that doesn’t dull. Therefore, SOG offers complimentary sharpening and service on all of our knives and tools. We will even cover the return shipping to get your newly refurbished and sharpened knife back to you.

SOG Unconditional Pocket Clip Warranty
Pocket clips can be broken if they are accidentally caught on foreign objects while wearing. To help prevent such occurrences, SOG recommends that you wear your knife in your front pocket, with the knife inside your pocket. If, for whatever reason, your clip bends or breaks and you would like to receive a replacement, fill out the Clip Request Form, or email/call SOG's warranty department. Damage to a knife handle because a clip has snagged is not considered "normal," and any such damage will be assessed under warranty. Learn more about replacing pocket clips in Knife & Tool Care.
