The original SOG Bowie fixed blade that founded our company was based on a knife used by the Studies and Observations Group of the US Special Forces and other elite soldiers in the Vietnam War. The SOG Bowie 2.0 has combined the traditional SOG Bowie with modern technology and materials. As a top-notch working fixed blade knife, it benefits from hard cased black TiNi coatings and AUS-8 steel. The SOG Bowie 2.0 has become a classic that is unparalleled in quality. The sculpted cross guard, deep hollow grinds and precision detailing, and faceted tip are unmistakable signatures.
