i don't own a SOG and never have so i have no opinion of them other than they make some nice looking stuff. kershaw is my preferred brand since the quality is excellent, the prices are very good, the knives come literally razor sharp and the customer service is awesome like S&W. i called to ask what size screws they used in one of my knives and the lady said she'd send me out some for free so i don't have to go hunting for them. i received the screws and a massive pile of stickers and catalogs.
i love kershaw.

I can't say anything about SOG, good or bad. But I have many Kershaw knives(all Ken Onion designs) and everyone of them is of excellent quality and performs perfectly in it's intended function.

SOG for me. I currently carry a SOG Blink which has the same assisted opening as the Twitch. It opens smoothly and EXTREMELY fast.

SOG just isn't what they used to be. Kershaw, on the other hand, has maintained a high level of quality for a very, very long time. SOG has apparently cut corners in assembly and fit. I've seen overly loose blades, poorly fit lock bars, and sloppy grind lines from them for the past several years.

SOG has a bit of a rep. because for a few years they were using AUS6 steel and it's a tad soft and prone to rust. Now they are using AUS8 and all of the problems they had are gone. I think they are making great knives and in fact just purchased a Flash II that should be here next Monday to go along with my new Spyderco Delica for a nice little pair of straight blades cause I just don't care for serrated edges...

years ago before he passed away I showed my Grandfather my first self purchased Kershaw Ken Onion. He shook his head and said, "It sure is pretty, but son, you'd break the tip of that off on somebodies ribcage if something were to happen, then what are you gonna use to clean your fingernails?"
Recently purchased a knife for a lady friend and had a chance to look at both the SOG and Kershaw knives they had on display. While the SOG ran a few dollars more, the Kershaw just had a much more smooth feel to it...

Kershaw has my vote. I have 5 different kershaws. they are like everyone above is saying. sharp, smooth good quality, great customer service, and they look awesome. i also like the liner locks on most kershaws.
i have never owned a sog, but my friends have. they seem to be great knives as well. they are a little overpriced for what you get to me.

I own an older SOG, assisted opening, (not sure of model). The pocket clip that is molded into the frame got bent before a camping trip, so I bought a Kershaw (looks similar to the Scallion or the Leek). I have never bothered to see if SOG would fix my knife. I have bought another Kershaw for myself, and two more as Christmas presents. Love them!

My personal preference is Spyderco or Benchmade, but of the two you're choosing between I'd have to say Kershaw. Their Echelon, Skyline, and the Tanto Zing are all favorites of mine.
