Blade

The blade is made of AUS-8 stainless steel that’s undergone cryogenic heat treatment for added strength and incorporates titanium nitride coating for corrosion resistance and repel moisture for durability to last for a long time with little maintenance. It comes with high-quality, well-designed 3/16-inch thick, 4.85-inch long drop point tip blade that is razor-sharp right out of the box that makes light work of chipping down 2-inch branches and cutting 4-inch firewood. Blade is designed perfectly to distribute workload along the long, sweeping edge for efficient cutting. It is full tang construction hence very strong to carry out heavy activities such as cutting meat, notch wood and open cans without much problem. It holds its edge even after repeated abuse.

** It comes with a short 4.85-inch blade hence not an ideal knife for batoning 5-inch diameter wood or hacking thick 3-inch diameter branches. A larger blade would be better.

Handle

It comes with a durable, light and solid Zytel (glass reinforced composite thermoplastic) handle that offers excellent grip during use. It also comes with thick and deep finger grooves for excellent balance and control. Includes lanyard hole to tie paracord or ropes to secure it to a backpack or belt.

** The Zytel handle, with its round base or pommel, is not suitable for hammering. As such, cannot be used to break hard objects such as hard nuts or window glass.

Sheath

It comes with a durable, high-quality, lightweight Kydex (does not absorb moisture or water) sheath to lock in knife tightly without rattling after use. It has a small pocket to store a small flashlight, fire steel and multitool. Includes few mounting options to secure it to a backpack or leg. Also comes with removable retainer strap plate and Velcro belt loop.

Final Thoughts

The SOG Seal Pup Elite E37T-K is perhaps one of the best survival/tactical/utility knives ever made. It’s razor-sharp and holds its edge well to cut almost everything with ease.
