The big draw at SHOT Show each year is, of course, firearms. But this year, I happened across a gem that made me do a double-take. I saw a new tactical knife with sleek, aesthetically pleasing lines that used of one of my favorite steels—CPM S35VN. This knife, the SOG Pillar, was a nice departure from the company’s standard fare with regard to steel composition. It checked all of the right buttons for me. I knew I had to review it for our heads-up match against another blade.
