The Sogfari 13″ Machete! What a fantastic concept.
PROS: Great idea. Large hacking blade for clearing brush combined with a saw blade on the back. Unlike the former Gerber incarnation of the machete-saw, the handle on this guy is sufficiently guarded to keep your hand from sliding off onto the upward facing blade when using it as a saw. +1 SOG engineers. Also, nice price.
CONS: Though large, our saw teeth came a bit dull out of the package. The blade, at 0.08″, is not thick enough for any real meat and potatoes machete work. That is a fact. Our blade was plenty sharp. It did not bend during testing but there are plenty accounts of this happening with routine use around the internet. (-2). Best go with a thicker piece of steel unless you anticipate light duty clearing only.
Summary: You get what you pay for. Although this machete does not appear to represent typical SOG quality and design to us, it may be useful for casual work.
