Heard good things about this knife, and after looking at it at Wally World...., well, I now have another knife! Guns,bows,knives..., ts an addiction. What impressed me about this knife was the razor sharp edge right out of the box, the neat sheath with pouch for sharpener/fire steel.The blade just "feels" like good steel (does that make any damn sense ? ) What I dont care for is the serrated edge, if not for that it would be perfect in my book. I bought it thinking it would be the perfect knife for a backpack bow elk hunt this coming fall. My question for any that have experience with this knife, does it hold an edge well, and does it sharpen well? Lets hear you're feedback

Ya gotta love the way a Pup feels in your hand. I've had two, and given them both away to guys who didn't exactly have budgets to get a quality knife when they were starting out. They are go to guys, so I felt better with them having the blade.

I'll have another soon. I really do need to stop giving away knives, lolo.

I own three SOG Seal Pup knives (two standard and one Elite version). These knives are excellent survival knives. They are the perfect size for multiple uses (cutting, field dressing game, eating utensil, self-defense, shaving tinder for fires, etc.) and are very high quality knives.

They are a smaller version of the SOG SEAL Team knives, which are outstanding knives, and passed the extensive selection process for the SEAL Teams, hence the name.

The steel is excellent and retains an edge even under very hard use.

You can get a stick sharpener for the serrated portion. I prefer a serrated section on blades - great for slashing rope or lines.

The blades are also powder coated so they withstand weather, salt water corrosion, etc. without rusting or pitting. And they wipe clean quickly when skinning game.

The handles survive the twist-off and drop-test breakage standards, and fit in your hand perfectly, and also fit smaller hands.

I own a lot of knives. But these knives are the ones I have chosen for my BOBs because they are really perfect for survival usage.

SOG Specialty Knives & Tools E37-N SEAL Pup Elite, Straight Edge, Satin - Amazon.com

Is this the one?

I haven't owned one but I like stainless steel blades, they won't hold an edge like carbon steel but they are super easy to touch up. A small Arkansas black would be a good stone for it.
No, its not the elite, just "seal pup" , I like that elite even better though. I guess I can get used to the serrrated blade, but would rather just have smooth. I cant wait to put this knife to work. Got the bear grylls sharpener and a firesteel to go in the pouch, put a paracord lanyard on it, and will probably do some paracord wrap on the sheath. That an small fanny pack with a compass, map,space blanket bivy and some wetfire tinder should be a good survival kit. I'm trying for ultralight, this old man dont climb mountains as good as he used to.
