SOG Tigershark S5 with 9" Blade; Seki, Japan
This versatile field knife dominates on land or sea. The larger version of the SEAL Knife, it has a massive 9" bowie-style blade that is powder coated and partially serrated. This striking knife is razor-sharp and strong with our deepest serration yet, so it easily takes on big or small cutting, slicing and chopping chores.
The Tigershark's contoured Kraton handle features aggressively textured scales for a solid and comfortable grip. The SOG Tigershark carries in SOG's jump rated Kydex sheath.
The Tigershark is the big brother of the "Seal 2000", which was tested for use for the US Navy SEALs against a grueling set of requirements.
This is the largest model SOG had created to date. What originally started as the SK-5 steel satin-finished Tigershark slowly transformed into the powder-coated (SK-5 steel) plain-edged Tigershark in 1997, followed by the powder-coated AUS-6 plain-edge Tigershark and finally the addition of serrations to this Tigershark model produced in Seki, Japan in 1999. Later models of the SOG Tigershark were produced in Taiwan.
The SK-5 Tigershark is also the iconic knife used in the new "SOG split bullet logo", using the picture of it cutting the .45 pistol round.
