tini finish was scratched,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: SOG Specialty Knives & Tools SE37-N Seal Team Elite Knife Partially Serrated Fixed Heat Treated 7-Inch AUS-8 Steel Blade and GRN Handle, Black TiNi (Tools & Home Improvement)
I think the knife is great in terms of size, durability, it's pretty much everything as advertised, but the finish on the tini finish has 2 hairline scratches on one side. It doesn't affect it's performance or functionality but it bothers me, I bought it mostly for display and to have a heavy duty combat knife on hand and went with the tini because it's advertised as highly scratch resistant (and it looks mean). I didn't want to send it back/exchange because I didn't want to spend the extra money for shipping and play the waiting game again to receive a new one, and even then you never know if there will be a flaw or what it will be with the next one. This is my 2nd > $100 sog knife, (I also own the vulcan vl-03) for my EDC, the vulcan also came with a scratched/gauged handle across the zytel. Both knifes are great knives, but I don't get why both of em look like they've been used before. When I bought the vulcan, i opted to go WITHOUT the tini finish, but rather with the satin finish, because I hate the way the scratches that came on my sog seal team elite look. If i could exchange it in person and do a thorough inspection, I would... I don't think I'd buy another SOG knife again through the internet. I'll try to upload a user photo of the scratches that came on mine.
