SOG Fusion Salute Combat Folders
SOG has made combat knives since their beginning and they are good at it. They have gotten on board with getting quality production done in China under their Fusion name. These tactical folders called “Salutes” are really a great accomplishment. They are full featured lockbacks – and the lockback system is super strong – with deep pocket clips, solid, G10 handles with steel liners and a unique adjustable thumb stud. We like these folders. You get all this for less than $30 for the silver blade model!!! Add a black coating to the blade and you’re still under $34. We’re impressed!
Here is SOG’s information:
For our first Fusion tactical folder we wanted something that was progressive and performance driven. The Salute is an acknowledgment that great design can still be affordable with a little perseverance. Take the machined G10 handles in combination with scalloped full-length steel liners for a whole new look. Add a big lockback, smooth as silk operation, and a proven Bowie style blade. For good measure, throw in our new invention- a movable thumb stud so you can tailor the position to your own hands. We didn’t forget to incorporate our trademark low carry bayonet clip either. The Salute lives up to its name and is worthy of carry on any front in the world… including your back yard.
