Info from SOG:
The SEAL Pup Elite is our high performance edition to the SEAL family of products. Sometimes... we just "have to have" more horsepower, the racing suspension, and every available option including sunroof. All kidding aside- the SEAL Pup Elite is serious business and carries on the tradition of supplying the worlds elite military forces.
Also includes Kydex carry sheath.
Over many years of military experience, an active duty Navy SEAL witnessed a recurring theme: open blades are useful and necessary but dangerous to equipment and personnel. His own personal experience with this problem occurred, coupled with countless stories of injuries to people and equipment, led him to invent the patent pending "GROOOOVE!". He spent months drafting and testing prototypes. This new innovation allows rope/line to be cut without unsheathing the knife.
