    Bowie 2.0 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharpening to a razors edge Bought this knife due to hardness of the metal advertised and decided to sharpen it to a razor cut edge for largeTuna that I fish for (HRC 57-58) per Bowie on the Rockwell scale was advertised. Thought I could do this with just a fine grinding stone but quickly realized due the hardness of the metal I first had to to go a rough stone, then medium stone then a fine stone to get a razor cut edge. It took me an hour due to get the edge I wanted due to the hardness of the metal with 3 separate stones. Made me feel better for what I paid for it and due to the time it took me to do this.... now feel really comfortable that it will keep its edge for quite some time and now just regular upkeep is now all I really need to do. However, read up on how to hand sharpen a knife with an HRC rating of 57-58 and be prepared to put some time into it. Cheap metal knives you can get a razors edge in minutes but the edge will only last your first Tuna..... catch another and try to do the same.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Real Deal Plus I've had this knife a few says now and couldn't be happier. I've purchased several SOG knives in the past including a Seal Team Elite and the discontinued GOV-TAC. All have been carried while hiking and have proved sturdy and useful. I haven't decided whether to carry the Bowie 2.0 or keep it as a show piece. It's that great looking. I really hate the idea of getting the first scratches and sign of wear. From what I've read and the photos I've seen this knife is very similar to the original MACV-SOG knives from the 1960's and perhaps identical to one or more iterations. I decided to get the 6.4 in. blade since it appears it was the most commonly produced. The fact that these knives were deliberately produced so as not to be identifiable as to origin adds to the character and mystique of the knife. The only differences I can identify about this knife and one of the originals are the steel of the blade and "SOG Bowie 2.0" engraved on the left side of the Ricasso and the origin, "Taiwan", very small on the right side. It's most distinctive characteristics are the sweeping grind that curves from edge of the spine about 1.25" in front of the guard to just above the center of the blade and up to the point, the shape and size of the guard and the oval cross section of the stacked leather handle with the four flat finger grooves on the bottom. Of course the most subtle yet distinctive characteristic of the original knives which is carried out on the Bowie 2.0 is the slight downward angle of the blade from the handle putting the point directly in line with the center line of the handle. A perfect feature for stabbing and deliberately designed into the original. The finish on this knife is perfect. Out of the box it is flawless. All components fit precisely. The black leather sheath is well made and as with the knife it is a faithful reproduction of the sheath which carried these fighting knives into jungles of Viet Nam. I'd like to own one of every knife SOG makes, but if I only could have one, this would likely be it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOG Bowie 2.0 I've had this knife for about three or four years and couldn't be more happy !! My Daughter sent it to me as a gift as she knows that I spend a good deal of time out in the mountains hiking and need something that I can depend on , she did a very good job with this knife !!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The SOG Bowie 2.0 Just like MACVN SOG sharp! For the longest time, I have wanted to own the perfect replica of the Studies and Observations Group Bowie made during the Vietnam War for that famous agency. I was not disappointed. The fit and finish are incredible! The edge is razor sharp and the high-polished blue finish is awesome. This is a top shelf fighting knife and a well-rendered replica of a classic blade.
