There are many brand of knives in the market, but how much of them are becoming a part of war history? One from the few is the SOG knife. It was designed for, and issued to, covert Studies and Observation Group personnel during the Vietnam War.
SOG Knives for Military Covert-Ops
The Military Assistance Command, Vietnam – Studies and Observations Group (MACV-SOG) was a highly classified United States special operations unit which conducted covert unconventional warfare operations prior to and during the Vietnam War. The SOG Knives are specially made for this group which was unmarked and supposedly untraceable to country of origin or manufacture in order to maintain plausible deniability of covert operators in the event of their death or capture.

The unit main tasks including intelligence gathering, raiding mission, carried out the capture of enemy prisoners, rescued downed pilots, and conducted rescue operations to retrieve prisoners of war throughout Southeast Asia. The SOG unit was formally disbanded on 1 May 1972.
