SOG Knives Collectors' Review/Take:
The SOG Desert Dagger (Leather) was a limited and special run from SOG. Produced in limited numbers of 250, it is quite a collectible knife, especially since this is the first "Special Edition" knife that SOG has produced in limited quantities. It retains the original design from the Desert Dagger, except for the brass guard and the handle which users leather washers. It comes with a unique brown leather sheath (another 1st from SOG) and each knife is serialized with a number stamped on the top of the guard (see pictures below). It is a very rare knife to come by since there are only 250 of them.
Last Known MSRP: $129.95 Production dates: 1990's Production numbers: 250 Limited run?: Yes.
Other things of interest: All knives were serialized Rarity index: 9.5/10(10 being the most rare)
Rarity index scale (1 to 10, 10 being the most rare):
1 - Very common; easily available on ebay, google product search and almost every knife selling website. Spammed with at least 10+ listings on ebay.
3 - Has been around for at least 2 years and are selling reasonably well, with retailers favouring other newer models over this knife.
5 - Knives that are on the borderline of being discontinued or have been discontinued for less than 6 months
6 - Products from 6 onwards are either discontinued or limited edition.
7 - Discontinued knives that pop up once every few months on the "For Sale" part of forums or on ebay. Still can be found at a few online shops though.
8 - Knives that need lots of researching to find. Not available anymore in online knife shops and pop up (if you're lucky) >4 months for one at a time.
9 - Knives holding this rarity are the shadowy kind. You can't find any information on them at all (not even from online knife shops that have not taken down that knife's product page). If you see one for sale grab at all cost.
10 - The rarest of all knives. If you hadn't been here you wouldn't even have known that it existed. Should you have one of these you better lock it up in a triple-combination safe and treat it like a family heirloom...
