SOG Seal Team 2000 Seki, Japan Kydex Sheath
The SOG SEAL 2000 is a 7" bladed fixed blade knife with a rubber handle that was designed for the grueling US Navy SEAL knife trials in 1992. The knife was manufactured from 1995 to 2007 for SOG by Kinryu of Seki Japan. Knives such as these and many of the SOG models produced prior to the shift of production from Seki, Japan to Taiwan are the best knives SOG had ever made.
