Building upon the traditions of the past, and inspired by the original bowie knife created by Rezin Bowie in 1938, the SOG Aura Fixed Blade represents the future in utility, ergonomics and comfort. A high-impact and tough glass-reinforced polymer handle is over-molded with a pliable material for non-slip comfort. The blade design has been adapted to provide safety without the need for a cross - guard isolating the hand. A carbide sharpener is accessible in the back of the handle to provide field touch-ups for the sharp and durable edge. Available in 10.95-inch, 10-inch or 11.9-inch lengths and with a straight or partially serrated edge.
