This Nite Tech is the ‘blackened’ version of the Tech II. Like the Midnite Tigershark, it was an exclusively produced by SOG Knives for the ‘Cutlery Shoppe’ knife company. It’s production ran side by side with the satin-finished ‘Tech II’, which is the closest in dimensions (7″) and geometry to the Nite Tech, except that it loses the Tech II’s brass guard. Under the gun-blue coating does not lie a satin-finish, which explains why the Midnite Tigershark does not have a shiny mirror finish like the S1 Bowie. It instead has a blackened finish that has low reflectivity. The blackened Nite Tech is the dark being of the Tech II knife in a way never seen before. Small, dark, sleek and ever so deadly.
