I love the knife. Its big, its razor sharp, its very well made, and it looks awesome. I gave it 4 stars because I am very disappointed in the sheath. Not the quality of the leather, but the fitment. It just does not fit very well. I don't know if it was by design or just some mistake in measuring but the rivets are so close at the top of the sheath opening that the blade cuts into the sheath. This causes the knife to stick very hard after the first inch or so. After shoving it in and out about 200 times it slides much easier, but still drags. I would expect that from a cheap $20-$50 knife but this knife deserves better. Another gripe is the attachment rivet that holds the retaining strap. It will rub the finish off your cross guard. I have only had it for half a day and its already showing marks where that rivet rides. I don't expect this knife to stay pristine and scratch free but I also don't believe the sheath should be causing the scratches.
This knife really is a work of art!!! Just Beautifully crafted!!!
The Super SOG Bowie is a very, very solid knife.
Made with AUS 8 steel, it's very resistant to water/rust damage, yet still has a high carbon content.
Plus with the TiNi finish, makes this blade that much more resistant to any and all environmental threats.
The blade itself is a 7-1/2 inch long chunk of steel.
It's slightly over 1/4 inch thick, and that 1/4 inch carries down to within 2-1/4 inches to the tip.
It's also 1-1/2 inches wide, through most of the blade.
Just an excellent blade, with beautiful lines.
This Super SOG Bowie comes sharp as a razor blade, this is my 3rd SOG knife, and I still say that SOG delivers the best factory grind on a blade, that I've ever seen. I own quite a few knifes. A bunch of Ka-Bar knives, 3 Zero Tolerance locking folders, and some Buck knives.
SOG, by far, comes with the cleanest and sharpest grind on there blades.
