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. And because no detail is overlooked, the sheath is as good as the knife - crafted in Japan from thick rich leather, with a splash design of silk stitched into it's face. A beautiful collector's item.
