SOG Knives Collectors' Review/Take: The SOG Government, ancestor of the Government Agent and the Gov-Tac, is said to be the 13th knife that SOG produced. A nice camping knife to have, the SOG Government incorporates a stainless steel pommel designed to be used as a field hammer - very handy feature indeed for hammering in those tent stakes or nails. It is was also rolled out during the same period in a tactical version, the Recon Government, which features a gun-blued darkened blade instead of the satin finish that the Government has.
SOG came out with confusing names for the consumers - Government, Government Agent and the Gov-Tac... Only the true collectors with the right knowledge will be able to discern between the three knives.Specifications: Blade Length: 6.25 in. Overall length: 11.25 in. Blade Steel: 440A Stainless Steel Blade hardness: Rc. 57-58 Blade finish: Satin-finished Weight:8.5 oz.
