The members of MACV-SOG had supplied a legendary knife fighter, known as SOG knifes, specially made to support them in clandestine operations within the Vietnamese jungle.
In 1986, the American designer Spencer Frazer, inspired by the name of the military unit, founded the SOG Specialty Knives, Inc. The company created a commemorative copy of the SOG knife, which was a significant success in the world by launching the SOG brand. Today, the company, with headquarters in Lynnwood, Washington USA, offers a vast catalog of knives and multi-purpose blades.
