SOG Creed Knife (

SOG Knives Collectors' Review/Take:
The SOG Creed is a fresh design from SOG. Moving away from the traditional SOG Bowie design, it is geared toward the bush-whacker or jungle guide. With a generous belly, the SOG Creed handles chopping tasks easily and its thick blade and heavy weight makes it an ideal chopper. Not to mention for a knife with such a blade its balance point is at the guard - very nice! Another plus point is that it comes with a leather sheath which is more comfortable and suited for carrying on the belt outdoors. However the "blood groove" on the knife appears to be for aesthetic purposes and serves no real purpose, unless you are doing some stabbing with this chopper. The knife is an attractive design but with its $250 price tag, would any one consider using one of these?

Other things of interest:
Rarity index: 1/10 (10 being the most rare)
Rarity index scale (1 to 10, 10 being the most rare):
1 - Very common; easily available on ebay, google product search and almost every knife selling website. Spammed with at least 10+ listings on ebay.
3 - Has been around for at least 2 years and are selling reasonably well, with retailers favouring other newer models over this knife.
5 - Knives that are on the borderline of being discontinued or have been discontinued for less than 6 months
6 - Products from 6 onwards are either discontinued or limited edition.
7 - Discontinued knives that pop up once every few months on the "For Sale" part of forums or on ebay. Still can be found at a few online shops though.
8 - Knives that need lots of researching to find. Not available anymore in online knife shops and pop up (if you're lucky) >4 months for one at a time.
9 - Knives holding this rarity are the shadowy kind. You can't find any information on them at all (not even from online knife shops that have not taken down that knife's product page). If you see one for sale grab at all cost.
10 - The rarest of all knives. If you hadn't been here you wouldn't even have known that it existed. Should you have one of these you better lock it up in a triple-combination safe and treat it like a family heirloom...

Product Description:
One of the more dramatic blade shapes in the SOG arsenal, the Creed delivers on its promises of high-level performance. The very stout front end weights the knife forward for chopping and piercing. The big belly on the blade maximizes the cutting edge for extreme wilderness and hunting situation. Mated with the Tech Bowie handle to provide a confident grip in inclement weather. This is a great example of a collectable and working knife coming together. For serious SOG Collectors and users. Includes satin finished stainless steel, tactile Kraton rubber handle, and white washers.

Also available with
Black TiNi finish.
