The SOG Pillar is a solid knife entirely made in the United States. When you look at the design, finish and the use of materials you notice that SOG has really taken the Pillar to the next level. A knife that you can really rely on.
The blade is made from CPM S35VN-steel. A powder metallurgical steel grade that retains its sharpness very well. At the same time the S35VN can handle the more demanding tasks. The blade is enhanced with a stonewashed and satin finish. The 'grind' has a satin finish. Combined with the stonewashed flat parts it looks very luxurious. The handle is made from canvas micarta. One of our favourite handle materials. Micarta offers enough grip also under wet conditions. The fibres in the textile namely swell when wet. At the same time micarta is a very stable material: cold, heat and chemicals hardly influence it.
With a fixed knife like the Pillar, the sheath is at least as important as the knife itself. What good is a knife if you cannot easily take it with you? With the Pillar you don't have to worry about it. It includes a nice kydex sheath. A Tek-Lok-clip was attached to the whole to wear the Pillar in many different ways.
