Hi everyone,
First off, forgive me if I make any protocol mistakes or other goof-ups: This is my first time here.
Anyway, I have two very rare SOG Fixed blades that I can't seem to find a value for ANYWHERE! ANY HELP would be GREATLY appreciated!!
The knives:
1. An ORIGINAL S1 Bowie (NOT one of the newer cheapies) PROTOTYPE with the 5th SFG insignia on the blade - but TIGER-STRIPED in light blue/gray and black, with Spencer Frazers hand signature etched by him onto the aircraft nut pommel. Leather disc handle. It is VERIFIED BY SOG as being 1 of only 15 EVER made!
2. SOG TigerShark (not the new one with the "knuckleguard"), standard (Kraton? Rubber?) handle - BLADE IS FULLY TIGER-STRIPED, again in light blue/gray and black. Spencers signature etched onto the partially serrated BLADE (marked with "SEKI-JAPAN" on choil). VERIFIED as ONE of ONE - it was made for me personally and the kind folks at SOG informed me that they had NEVER Tiger-Striped or otherwise camouflaged a TigerShark, that this was a FIRST.

I got both of these knives in 2005(?).
Both came with Certificates of Authenticity from the factory signed by Mr. Frazer.

I've been trying to find out what they are worth, esp. to a serious SOG collector, pretty much ever since I got them. I doubt that I will part with the TigerShark since it was essentially a gift, but it would still be nice to have this information! I'm willing to wheel and deal with anyone who is seriously interested in the S1.

Thank you and God bless!

I would be up in Bernard Levines forum asking these question. He is the EggSpurt.

Hey Orko,
I will be happy to hook you up with some pix of the knives... my only issue is that my wife has the digital camera at her office, so I had to use my phone camera to take them - it actually took fairly decent shots. The problem is that I can only really get them to you in a way that you can actually see the detail is via email. Would you mind emailing me at sgtfury04(@)hotmail.com with your email address? As soon as you do, I will send you the pix. sorry for the inconvenience. If you like SOGs, you're really going to love these - I also just noticed that the S1 is also marked "VIETNAM", so it might be even older than I originally thought, I don't know. It makes sense that they would use some real old stuff for prototypes, so maybe I really do have a gold mine here! I hope to hear from ya.

those are some beautiful knives. I did hear of the camo tigershark before, and how rare it was, and now I've seen it. As for value, it is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. If I were you, I wouldn't sell them so I guess they are either worth nothing (since you won't sell) or priceless (since you won't sell). If your looking to sell, price is like the stock market, it goes up and down...
