Very nice collection and a few look like ones I may have owned years ago. That should get some attention.

Hello  I am trying to upload more pictures, but the files are too large.  Give me a hint and i'll fill up this thread with SOG knives.  Recons, 5000, black spacer fat guards, white spacer fat guards, all the presentation types, and even the Gilmore presentation knives on John Gibson's military collection site.

DVS, very nice collection of SOG you got there. We share the same passion I see.

I like the 5000series you got there, those are rare. I too got 2 of them left, sold 1 a few years ago. At one time I hade 29 SOGs. Think I got 20 left today.

Looking forward to seeing more of your collection. Absolutely top notch dvs.

Hello Martin and THANKS!!    I  had 45 at my hight point, and began to thin them out based on condition.  I did sell several that I wished I had back....especially one 7 inch recon.  I let it go 3 years ago, and haven't seen one for sale since.

 I think I have 26 left, and just couldn't bear to sell any more.  

Tarbridge wrote that he had 70 at one time...I was hoping he might consider adopting me!!!   I'll post my fat guards today.  

 

thanks again    

 

david

David, those early Fat Guards with black spacers are also quite rare. I only found one in my years of collecting CISO / SOG knives. Sold it e few years ago, and still regret it.
I’m very much enjoying your museum quality collection. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Martin

Owen, sure thing. Will take some time though, I’m currently on a drilling rig on the UK sector. Happy days when your spending Christmas and New Years Offshore, and on top of that you have no return ticket. So could take some time Owen.

dvs, You got some nice low numbers on the PLUM ones.

What numbers do you have on the 5000series? Can only read one of them 5125.

Thanks again bud for sharing. Not much else to do here after your 12-16 hours shift.

Hello Martin    

 

How's the holiday pay on a drilling rig??    The other number is 5393.   I am hot on the trail on a 7 inch recon.  It has been eluding me for several years, I might be catching up to it.

 

I have a handful of presentation knives, should I put some pictures of these up?

 

thanks for looking

 

david
