SOG SBR 80 Recon Bowie, Seki, Japan - 

The SOG Recon Bowie, in the view of most SOG collectors, is the most interestingly shaped and sexiest knife that SOG ever produced. One cannot escape from the beauty of its gun-blued polished blade coupled with its leather washer handles, gleaming brass guard and butt. It is the most elegant knife of all the Seki Japan SOGs. The "Vietnam-era Recon Knife" shape is an especially attractive and collectible one, and some companies have sold knives based on that design, for example Randall and SOG.

According to old tales, most combat knives had a blade length of around 6 inches. However, fierce close-quarter hand-to-hand combat in Vietnam by the MACVSOG Special Forces soldiers saw them requesting an additional inch of blade for an edge (pun intended) over their enemies. This knife is a must-have in every SOG knife collector's collection. It is one if the SOG knives that feature both the old (square SOG) and new (split-bullet) SOG logos. Owners of this knife cannot stop singing praises about the wicked edge this knife keeps and the great shape it has. Sleek and deadly indeed. This is the reason why it is one of the most sought after SOG knives todays. For those that preferred a high carbon steel the Sk-5 a perfect solution.
