Like its predecessor, the SEAL Team has a partially serrated blade that is powder coated or coated in hardcased black TiNi to increase durability and rust resistance. Its lightweight, glass-reinforced nylon handle features a raised diamond pattern for secure gripping in inclement weather. The SEAL Team series carries on the proud tradition of quality and service renowned in the original SOG SEAL Knife 2000. The SEAL Knife surpassed one of the most extensive testing and evaluation programs ever undertaken by the U.S. Government. For those who want all of the benefits of the original SEAL Knife, but in a updated version, we have created the SEAL Team. This stowable blade is an excellent field companion for outdoor and underwater adventures.
