Cryogenic Heat Treatment
SOG's unique cryogenic heat treatment process increases the toughness and wear resistance of our blades. Taking the knife slowly down in temperature to less than -300 degrees 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.
Caring for Your Fixed Blade Knife
Keeping your knife clean, dry, oiled and sharp are the primary defenses against corrosion, wear, and potential injury. Be sure to clean the blade and handle after each use--however, do not soak your knife in water. A mild solution of soap and water should remove any dirt and debris that may have accumulated during use (avoid harsh detergents such as laundry or dish soap, and chlorine products).
After cleaning or after exposure to moisture be sure to completely dry your knife blade and handle, taking special care with any sensitive handle materials. Use a soft cotton cloth or chamois and a small amount of moisture-displacing oil (such as WD-40 or 3-in-1), on the blade only, to prevent water spots and oxidation from forming. Fingerprints and weather are the primary causes of rusting or corrosion on a knife blade. To keep your knife looking its best, SOG recommends that you give your blade a light coat of oil after each cleaning, and prior to long term storage.

Top Customer Reviews
I bought the SOG Seal Pup Elite a few years ago. The SPE is a great knife, but it always felt a tad short for me, and I thought the handle/grip was just a little too thin for my hand. (I added a photo comparison.)
I finally bought the Seal Team (not Elite) knife and I have to say THIS is the knife. It is the perfect length and the handle is a perfect fit for my hand. And I love the perfect thickness of this blade.
The one and only complaint I have is that the kydex sheath is not fully "fastened" at the entry point, so when you go to push/snap the knife into place...it stays, but it is not as secure as it could be if there was one more hole fastening the last inch or more of the sheath. None of what I just wrote probably make sense! But the knife is amazing and I will find a way to fix the sheath to my liking.
I explain all this because the SOG Seal knife is one of the very few I would not hesitate to take with me on a long trip to the middle of nowhere.
There are many reasons to buy a knife, I know, but performance is what I care about. How much muscle does it take to get a fixed-blade to cut, chop, slice and split? The SOG requires less effort to use than most other fixed blades I own, and the ones that can match it are heavier. Among blades of this length, the SOG Seal is the champ. None perform better.
I attribute this largely to its thick-spined hollow-ground cross section. Compared to many knives, the SOG's edge is thinner. If you want a knife to sink into something, thinner goes in easier than thicker. If I had to pry apart masonry and steel doors after an apocalypse, maybe I'd choose something else. In the woods, however, I know it won't fail.
I guess it was sharp enough out of the box, but that's something I never pay attention to because I will sharpen a knife the way I want it to be. With the SOG Seal's blade, it was easy to do.
I chose this over the Elite, btw, because this has no rasp on the back. On my Seal Pup Elite, that rasp is pretty much useless except on green wood. I assume the Seal Team Elite rasp is no different.
Some might say the SOG Seal's handle could be better, the cutting edge could be longer and a fine edge would be better than the serrations. All may be true, but none of those things diminish the exceptional amount of capability this knife offers.
This knife has the 'satin finish' which has the appearance of a gloss but textured baked enamel (it might be something else, like epoxy, but this is how it looks). On mine, the finish is not evenly applied so that you can see definite 'regions' on the blade.
The more expensive version with the 'TiNi' finish looks much nicer. It is an evenly applied flat black finish.
If I had the extra $$$ to spend, I'd pay a little more for the TiNi finish. This is just from a cosmetic perspective.
I don't know which finish is actually more durable, but I'd place an uninformed bet on the TiNi finish being able to take more abuse.
I give it four stars because the TiNi version looks better.
In summary, awesome knife. Made very well to do many things.
Overall I believe the knife is a good value and will serve me well in the field. It is nice to find quality and value in the same package.
