For those looking for high-quality tactical knives, SOG can be one of the brands for you to look at as they manufacture knives that are actually pretty good in terms of overall steel quality, durability, and aesthetic appeal.
Secondly, are SOG knives made in China?
Most fixed blade SOGs are made in Taiwan, while most multi-tools are USA-made. As for most of their folding knives, the better ones are made in the USA and Japan, though cheaper models can come from China and Taiwan. Many of SOG’s less common products are made in China like Tomahawks, throwing knives and battle axes.
Besides, does rubbing knives together sharpen them?
Absolutely not. A honing steel is significantly harder than the blade of a knife and is specially textured for honing. Rubbing two knives together is more likely to dull or knick the blades than anything else. The blade of a knife should never touch anything harder than a wooden cutting board.
How do professionals sharpen knives?
The angles we use are 22-24 degrees.
