Classic “MACV-SOG” type
11” Jungle Combat Survival
Bowie Knife and Sheath
Heavy Duty Black Vinyl Sheath
with Sharpening Stone!
An Historically Accurate Replica Fighting Knife!
In this auction we are offering this modern reproduction of the famous Jungle Combat Fighting Knife. Crawling through the swampy jungles of Vietnam, the MACV-SOG Special Forces, LRRP and Green Beret warriors needed a knife they could count on. This Elite Forces Fighter is a high quality reproduction of the knife that they carried. Its 6 1/4" anodized all-black blade features a clip point tip and a razor-sharp edge. The stacked-leather disc handle grips well and will last over time. It includes a heavy duty vinyl sheath with authentic black leather look and a sharpening stone in the sheath's pocket.
This is a high quality, historically accurate, replica features the characteristic blade shape, genuine leather disc grip that are reminiscent of the original that was designed by the 1960's Deputy Chief of the U.S. Counterinsurgency Support Office (CISO). The blade pattern features the classic clip point of a Bowie knife. The original blades were typically either parkerized or blackened to reduce glare.
This design was first issued to the covert “Military Assistance Command, Vietnam - Studies & Observation Group” (MACV-SOG) Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force Special Forces personnel during the Vietnam War. The originals were unmarked, and supposedly untraceable, as to the country of origin or the manufacturer, in order to maintain plausible deniability of covert operators in the event of their death or capture.
