One of the more dramatic blade shapes in the SOG arsenal, the Creed delivers on its promises of high-level performance. The very stout front end weights the knife forward for chopping and piercing. The big belly on the blade maximizes the cutting edge for extreme wilderness and hunting situations. Mated with the Tech Bowie handle to provide a confident grip in inclement weather, this is a great example of a collectable and working knife coming together. SOG's unique cryogenic heat treatment process increases the toughness and wear resistance of our blades. Cryogenic Heat Treatment takes the knife slowly down to temperature less than -300°F and then back to room temperature. This stress relieves the material on an atomic level and increases overall strength as well as edge retention. Knife edges stay sharp longer with significantly less micro-fracturing and edge-chipping. It's this dedication to making your knife SOG sharp that sets us apart from the rest. Knife includes satin finished stainless steel, tactile Kraton rubber handle, and white washers.
