Say goodbye to the Sig Knifes

Talked to my Sig rep this morning. I was going to order a Sig Pterodactyl. He told me Sig is out of the knife business.

From what I could research I believe Fox Cutlery USA was the manufacturer.

Sounds like Sig is getting out of the private-label knife business then.

Were you able to order the knife directly from Fox Cutlery?

Fox cutlery

No, they don't have the same exact knife as the Sigs. But they are nice and high end. You may have also seen their t-shirts around town - FKU (Fox Knives USA)

I'll be saving my pennies for a spyderco auto now/next.

Benchmade sets the knife standard in my opinion if you want something really nice. From the material used to the mechanical features they are superior. I have a barrage 581 spring assist and it's quality.

Microtech,Spiderco,and Benchmade in my opinion on the Auto's. I own all three and cherish them all. Microtech for precision build, Spyderco for the Blade and alloys used and Benchmade for the variety of styles and keeping prices in a range all can afford.

Too bad - does anyone know if this is really the case? Sometimes there's a production lag if there's a buyout, but the product starts going though the supply line before too long.

I've carried a ton of knives over the years. Bench made, gerber, kershaw, and so on. I've settled down with Zero Tolerance. Best production knife for the money IMO
