SOG Collaborates on Video Game Tomahawk


SOG (www.sogknives.com) has partnered with Electronic Arts, a global leader in digital interactive entertainment, to develop the Voodoo Hawk, a tomahawk weapon designed specifically for the video game Medal of Honor™ Warfighter.
 
     The Voodoo Hawk (http://sogknives.com/store/F18-N.html), a combination of SOG’s Tactical Tomahawk and FastHawk weapons, was designed by SOG, game designers and U.S. Tier 1 Operators, the creators of the Medal of Honor series, to provide game players with an authentic warfare experience.
 
     A limited-edition version of the Voodoo Hawk, which includes custom engraving, SOG patch, and special sheath (http://sogknives.com/store/F18LTD.html), will go on sale this October, in conjunction with the launch of Medal of Honor Warfighter. The Voodoo Hawk is made with a 420 stainless steel head, weighs 24 ounces and has a glass-reinforced nylon handle. Overall length is 12.56” and has a cutting edge of 3.5”.
 
     Proceeds from sales of the Limited Edition Voodoo Hawk will be donated to Project HONOR (http://www.medalofhonor.com/project-honor), an initiative launched by Electronic Arts to benefit the NAVY SEAL Foundation, the Special Operations Warriors Foundation, and other charities.  The Voodoo Hawk and the Limited Edition Voodoo Hawk will retail for $75.00 and $100.00, respectively.  Only 500 Limited Edition Voodoo Hawks will be sold.    
 

    “We were honored to be asked by the Medal of Honor producers to work with them in creating a unique weapon specifically for this game,” says Nando Zucchi, VP of Marketing for SOG.  “The Medal of Honor series dedication to accuracy in portrayal of the equipment and weaponry used in their game is incredible. The producers of the game felt that SOG had to be included in Warfighter in order to meet their standard of authenticity. We are delighted to be a part of this franchise and to work with Electronic Arts to benefit the Project HONOR foundation.”
 
     Medal of Honor WarFighter, which is the latest video game from the Medal of Honor series, was written by U.S. Tier 1 Operators and will be released for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on Oct. 23.  In addition to the Voodoo Hawk, the SOG Ops Black TiNi belt knife and SOG PowerLock EOD Black Oxide Multi-Tool are also featured in the game.
