    Just curious as to if a few members have one or have used one very much. It has Vietnam 5th Special Forces group on the right side of the blade and Seki Japan on the other side at the hilt. It seems very well made and it quite thick but tapers nicely and is well balanced.

    That's a great read Ken, and the makers sure made some beautiful blades. I wouldn't mine a recon bowie alsol they look nice but their up there as well. There are awesome blades for sure on that website, and Thanks for the link and info much appreciated.

    I posted this pic of my Seki SOG knives several years ago.

    While the S-1 is not the best kitchen knife, I have used mine a couple of times to slice up steak for fajitas, and to cut some veggies. And it sees occasional outdoor carry and use. I'm not a collector, I'm a knife user, and everything gets used for something occasionally. The S-1 is one of my favorite using knives. There's something about the horrified look on the face of a true collector when they see it in the field...
