For the first Fusion tactical folder Sog wanted something that was progressive and performance driven. The Salute is an acknowledgment that great design can still be affordable with a little perseverance. Take the machined G10 handles in combination with scalloped full-length steel liners for a whole new look. Add a big lockback, smooth as silk operation, and a proven Bowie style blade. For good measure, throw in our patent-pending new invention- a movable thumb stud so you can tailor the position to your own hands. Sog did not forget to incorporatether trademark low carry bayonet clip either. The Salute lives up to its name and is worthy of carry on any front in the world... including your back yard.
