SOG SEAL Team Elite Knife Review



The SOG Seal Team Elite Survival Knife is one of the best in the SOG Seal line of knives. This survival knife came out on top in the US Government’s knife evaluation program. Testing evaluated tip breaking strength, blade sharpness and edge retention, as well as blade toughness. This knife takes the SOG Seal series to another level.

The blade is matte black with a TiNi coating and has a new blade shape with a longer cutting edge. This blade is pretty long at 7 inches, so you won’t need to worry if it will complete those big jobs or not. The blade is made of AUS8 Steel and is partially serrated to make those cutting jobs easier. The serrations on this knife are sharp so cutting is a breeze. The overall length of the SOG Seal Team Elite is 12.3 inches, not something you will likely carry when grocery shopping, but could possibly be a lifesaver in a survival situation. How do you get better than a full tang? With an extended tang. The blade has a spine rasp for notching and an extended tang for hammering and glass breaking.


The handle is the famous SOG Zytel handle which is both durable and strong. I love the diamond design grip. It makes this knife easy to handle even in wet conditions. I think this is one of the best survival knife handles out there, but that is my personal preference. The finger-grooves on this handle make it feel natural to hold even during hard use. This knife weighs in at 10.3 ounces and is well-balanced. So although this knife is on the large side, it is very easy to handle and is balanced to feel natural.

The sheath is their popular Kydex sheath. The sheath holds this knife pretty well but I have heard complaints about how tight the fit is when the top strap is not secured, even though I haven’t experienced any problems. This sheath gives you a lot of options for securing. The sheath comes with a pouch to store a multi-tool or fire-steel. Overall this is absolutely one of the best Survival Knives out there.
