The NW Ranger Cocobolo evokes the images of one of the harshest outdoor wilderness areas in the world. Sportsmen, fishermen, hunters, and outdoor enthusiasts require a knife that can fulfill a variety of tasks, is easy to carry, and can perform in a wide range of environments. The NW Ranger is designed for the outdoor rigors it may encounter. With an elongated clip point blade, flat ground bevels, and the world famous sharpness found on all SOG products, the NW Ranger will not let you down. This is a state of the art knife that utilizes a small serrated section on the blade to increase the cutting power on fibrous material such as animal cartilage, ligament, or nylon rope. Manufactured entirely from 440 stainless steel, the NW Ranger features quality seldom seen even in very expensive knives… soldered cross guard to blade construction. SOG has become known for the comfortable feel, exceptional balance and ergonomically designed handles of its products. The NW Ranger is no exception with using the exotic Cocobolo wood handle and beautiful design. *Rarity Note: The NW Ranger in Cocobolo is exceptionally rare due to being a limited production of 250 knives by Kinryu Knives. Also, it was available for sale in Japan as the last two pictures are from a 1994 Japanese knife catalog.
