I can tell you from experience that benchmade is superior to SOG knives. They are well constructed, and hold an edge very well. I tried the SOG knives, but found myself sharpening more often then I had with my other brands. On a side note, I am also a fan of the Gerber knives. The best grip I ever had on a knife was on one of my Gerbers, Skinned many animals with it and it hasn't slipped once. Plenty enough "grippy".

To me, Benchmade are undoubtedly the finer knife in everyway. There's no comparison really. Benchmade are pretty straight forward, no bells and whistles, just great knives.

Benchmades are much, much better than SOGs. SOGs are more comparable to the cheaper Kershaws, only a much worse value. I recently purchased a Flash II, and what a terrible value it was. It cost me $67, and used AUS-8 steel and the handle was entirely made out of a cheap, soft plastic. No steel liners, nothing. Wouldn't be that big a deal necessarily if they used a hard, high quality plastic, but the didn't. SOG has better knives than the flash, but they're also considerably more expensive. You can get a Kershaw Leek for under $40, and it's made of aluminum, is a better design and a better steel. SOGs are a rip-off. Benchmades are on a whole other level above either of them, but of course there's also a price premium for that. Pretty sure the only Benchmade that can reallybe had for under $100 is the Griptilian. Griptilians are really nice knives though, so you get what you pay for.
