Team Leader SOG SPECIALTIES

Description

The Team Leader was produced in 1987 by SOG SPECIALTIES and designed by SOG’s Founder and Chief Designer, Spencer Frazer. When examining this massive folding knife, it’s solid construction and heaviness tell you this was no “cheepie” to manufacture. Its polished nickel bolsters, blued carbon steel blade and sporty Micarta scales are simply big and bold. Therefore, a smile is the usual reaction one gets when holding a Team Leader for the first time, which is typically followed by “Now that’s a knife!” As SOG SPECIALTIES second knife produced, the first being the SOG-1-F Bowie, the Team Leader displayed a beefy construction with thick bolsters and girth that stood out. Unfortunately, this unique knife didn’t sell well, which combined with its expensive production costs, the Team Leader quickly faded away. It did set the bar high for future generations of SOG Specialty Knives and Tools to evolve from by utilizing quality materials, superior engineering, and design functionality. These same qualities still live on today in SOG Specialty Knives and Tools products. Rarity Note: Roughly 350 Team Leaders produced, which make it especially rare today.
