SOGMC02: SOGfari Machete
SOG

Our machetes are exciting additions to the SOG family. Its not should I have a machete but which size will work for me. Machetes are one of the more useful edged tools in the world. They have cleared brush, and blazed trails, have chopped wood, made shelters, harvested crops, prepared meals, hunted and protected. Careful attention has been given to the SOGfari to make sure that the weight was right and the handles were comfortable for extended use. Whip them through the air and hear them sing. We’ve added a real working saw on the back of the blades with teeth that cut deep. Extended out of the back of the handle is a spiked tang for pounding and scraping. There are even holes in the handle to mount lanyards. SOGfari... the go to tool for survival, exploration and adventure!

Went back country in BC and pieces blew off the blade while I was going through 1/4"-3/8" kindling. SUCCCKS. Made to slice grass & flesh only I guess.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Blade Material, Materials, Sheath/Scabbard
Highly disappointed...
I used this to clear some brush on my land. It dented quickly striking small branches, less than an inch in diameter. I mainly used it to chop climbing vines and it even dented on some of those. It was sharp out of the box but didn't even last one brush clearing session.

Brittle Blade not tough at all...Chipped, then Broke in Half!!
Initially felt good about this machete, the handle felt wonderful after years of using an Ontario (old army surplus). However, when finally set to anything better than green weeds or grass, the machete was easily chipped. When using to attempt to chop away at a log for a fire (a task my old machete didn't like too much either, but at least it lasted through the event) the blade broke in the middle, similar to what another reviewer mention their SOG had done to them. After reviewing, turns out that a Chinese steel was used to manufacture these. Too bad, the handle sure did feel nice...
