Iron Mountain Outfitters - S.O.G. Knives

Top-notch quality describes all the brands that Iron Mountain Outfitters carries.  And S.O.G. is no different.  S.O.G. makes the strongest knives on the market!

About S.O.G.:

"Founded in 1986 by Spencer Frazer in his apartment in Santa Monica.
First product - a fixed blade commemorative knife that retailed for $169 based on the original design of a Vietnam military knife.

1988 SOG introduced its first folding knife, the Tomcat, which won Blade Magazine’s Overall Knife of the Year Award. This was the first of the numerous awards SOG received for innovative products and ideas.

1990 SOG introduced the Tool Clip, the company’s first multi tool that led them into new and much broader arenas, including the industrial and retail markets.

In 1995 Mr. Frazer invented Compound Leverage multi-tools, a patented design which gives SOG tools vastly superior pliers clamping strength. Today, the company has over 50 patents for their unique inventions.

In 2000, the company created an entirely new-patented concept (SOG Assisted Technology) that made it easier and faster to open a folding knife ambidextrously.
With the introduction of these products, SOG established itself as the first knife manufacturer to expand its line to include a broad scope of folding knives, multipurpose tools, and a deep assortment of fixed blades.

In 2009, SOG partnered with MCC Capital Partners, a private equity firm specializing in the growth of branded consumer products companies.

SOG is well positioned to efficiently and professionally service its growing list of customers, while preserving the SOG traditions of product quality, innovation, and strength of brand.

Since 1986 SOG has been creating the strongest, most innovative multi-tools and knives on the market.
