EDC knives are a vital tool in many outdoor activities. In the case of survival knives, size doesn’t necessarily matter, it’s the blade and handle that make the biggest impact for user. However, on the flip side, it depends on what you need the survival knife to do. Many people like a fixed blade, rather than a folding blade, to meet their survival situations.

SOG Fixed Blade Creed

My In Depth Review of the SOG Creed

It might go without saying that a fixed blade knife is good to have around. However, the Creed by SOG is without a doubt, one knife that demands attention and is certain not to go unnoticed whenever one is displayed. The shape of the blade is among the more striking expressions of knife-making that have come from SOG.

This is a very stout knife, constructed with the strength needed for penetrating and cutting, even when used in the most extreme wilds. The Tech Bowie type handle will deliver a very firm and steady grip even in inclement weather, with a combination of a raised surface texture and finger indentations produced to just the right amount of depth along the handle.

Where the SOG Creed Really Shines

This is a great all-purpose knife that is perfect for hunting, fishing, backpacking or self-defense. It truly is an intimidating and impressive looking blade. The blade…
