30 for 30: SOG honors its history by giving away gifts at ORSM


Lynnwood, WA. – At most anniversary celebrations, those approaching the milestone date are being showered with gifts. SOG Knives & Tools is turning that practice on its head.

 Drop off a card in Booth 120 at ORSM for a chance to win a SOG multi-tool.

During the 2016 Outdoor Retailer Sumer Market trade show being held in Salt Lake City the first week of August, SOG celebrates its 30th anniversary by giving – not receiving – gifts.

For the first three days of ORSM (Aug 3, 4, 5), SOG will give away 15 multi-tools and 15 of its mission-grade backpacks – 30 gifts a day total – as it continues its year-long celebration of its 30th anniversary.

Attendees of ORSM need only to swing by the SOG booth (#120) and drop off a business card each day. A drawing will be held at 5 p.m., sharp. Knives and packs will be mailed to winners after the show.

“It’s pretty simple,” said Chris Cashbaugh, SOG’s Marketing Director. “Swing by booth 120, leave us a business card and hope your name gets pulled at the end of the day. We’ve had great support from the outdoor industry over the past 30 years and this is just one small way we can give back.” 

About SOG: Taking its name from an elite Special Forces military group from the Vietnam era – the Studies and Observation Group – SOG was founded in 1986 by designer and toolmaker Spencer Frazer. SOG has gone on to produce the favorite models of specialty knives and tools used by the military, law enforcement, industrial tradesmen and outdoor enthusiasts worldwide.
