SOG Seal Pup hacked with paracord cutter, sharpener and steel striker

I bought a SOG Seal Pup with kydex sheath and modified it by cutting out a portion of the sheath so it can be used to cut cord or string without taking it out of the sheath.





Then I added some velcro and a rapalla sharpener (which I cut down to a smaller size) to cover the cut out portion when not cutting cord or rope. The velcro holds a rod of steel striker on the sheath's backside and I put applied some shiny aluminum tape that would be great for signaling. And of course there's 3 metres of paracord that can be used for a lanyard, belt, shelter, etc. Retrofitting (hacking) it was fun, and I'm pleased with the results.

It's a small blade, but I like to travel light. The SOG Seal Pup is comfortable and I feel safe handling it in every task. Finally, the blade lends itself to choking up for finer carving.

I've abused it in the month I've owned it while hacking, batoning, sawing through metal and plastic (the serrations are great), carving the inside of quinzee, and it's performed well.

I would recommend this knife to any outdoor enthusiast. It's light, comfortable, strong and is a safe option for all ages.

SOG Desert Dagger

by Michael Warren
(Phoenix Az. U.S.A.)

Well the good old fashioned Buck knife is not a bad stand by and very inexpensive. However I have an SOG Desert Dagger. It has a decent size 6" blade and a rubber handle.

It is very basic dagger design blade with two kinds of serration. The balance is really nice. Also the handle can be used for a hammer, although it is a little light.

The only drawback is the stainless steel blade. The only reason for that is it is a little tough to get a good blade on. Of course that should be resolved before you " Don't leave home without it". That and they have discontinued it but there are a still a few floating around for sale.

High quality knives

by Griffin

SOG makes high quality, tough knives that can hold an edge very well, and are easy to sharpen. Perfect for chopping or getting firewood.

I accidentally struck a rock as hard as possible while cutting through a bush, my blade was still razor sharp and with no scratches or dings. It has a very sturdy, metal based handle, with finger grooves.

Ka-bar makes an excellent cutting or utility knife, very sharp but dulls faster. Great handle on it as well.

Cold steel's San Mai Trailmaster is the same thing too. Great point and cutting edge on it.

Sog Field Pup

by SGT CARTER
(SEQUIM, WA USA)




Sog Field Pup is one of the best all around survival knives on the market suited for outdoors. It is affordable, compact, user friendly, and tough. The cost of a knife should not be a factor if your life is depending on it, but not having one at all is a travesty.

Compact gives you the advantage of having the knife with you at all times.

The Field Pup is easy on the hand for long usage, small enough for little tasks and big enough for medium tasks.

Tough is relative to ones ideals, but the pup is almost 1/8" thick and holds a good edge.
