The Military Assistance Command, Vietnam-Studies and Observations Group, known to many as MACV-SOG was an elite group of special forces soldiers that operated in secrecy before and during the Vietnam Conflict. This Vietnam bowie knife is modeled after the very knife which was issued to this specialized group of soldiers. This is a historical replica in no way associated with the SOG knives brand.

This knife is better than I expected. I had a knife similar to this when I was about 12. That knife was a cheap piece of junk, so I wasn't expecting much with this one. When this one arrived I was pleasantly surprised at how well built this is. The handle is solid and the blade is firm with no blade play. Excellent knife. I hope this knife comes back for sale so others can purchase and enjoy it.

Nice Blade

This knife has a really nice blade, it came sharp and has a good weight. The only thing that could have better quality is the hilt. But overall for the price, it is definitely worth buying.

Nice Bowie Knife

This knife has a cool looking handle, brass end cap but a good knock off of the S.O.G original. And the sheath needs better work done on it it is NOT battle worthy. But a good display knife.

Vietnam Tactical Bowie

A very good Chinese knockoff of the S.O.G. original and priced to please. I agree with many of the other reviewers that the sheath could use significant improvement, but when you need to pay 15 times as much for the current production name brand, I'm sure most could find a replacement sheath that will suffice (G.I. type Nylon Knife Sheath Item #01 RT40065 for instance?) and never feel taken advantage of. This knife was NOT designed as a survival knife nor a hunting knife, it's sole purpose was combat in the same spirit as the Marine K-Bar or the Fairbairn-Sykes British Commando knife. You shouldn't expect to abuse it for purposes it wasn't designed. All in all still one fine combat tool.

Almost like the old days

Used the original in country long time ago. It was a life saver. This one seems pretty strong. Had to work to get a decent edge though. It rides on my hip when I ride my Harley.I rely one it like I did the old one to be ready when I need it.

Hard to sharpen!!! Ugh !

It looks great but mine cane with a dull blade. I tried to touch it up with a Gerber butcher steel, then ceramic stones, then a Smiths tri stone, then my Lansky diamond hones all to no good result. I can't believe this steel won't take an edge! The steel must have been a bad batch. Also the aluminum guide rails of my Lansky sharpener took some of the black finish off the blade and I only had it on finger tight. I think it's just a painted finish. It shouldn't be that tender.

MACV Knife

I was very impressed with this knife for the price, and it seems like something that will hold up after use. The blade finish appears well done, like the black will not chip off easily, and I love the look of the stacked leather washer handle with the brass guard and pommel accenting the ends. If the sheath is fake leather, they really put a lot of effort in hiding it, with black felt firmly veneered on the inner side of each place it is visible. The sharpening stone pouch is definitely real leather, to make the description of a "leather sheath" kind of the truth in a roundabout way. Anyway, it's a great start to a bug out kit, when you don't want to put your expensive brand name knife in a ruck in the corner that is only set aside for emergencies and forget about it, this is a great budget-minded way to go. I'd suggest to anyone to get the two for a savings, and have a gift or barter item to sweeten up any trade at the next gun and knife show or barter fair/swap meet.

Fair for the price

Mine came sharp. It feels a little loose at times. But it is not an expensive knife. Holds an edge so far.
