SOG should be ashamed to put thier name on a low quality product like this.
OGGIEDOG
It's not a "do it all" machete (let me put it this way; I would NOT recommend chopping wood or cutting heavy brush with it).
Cam
Just doing some minor chopping on a dead limb the blade bent, chipped, and then snapped completely in half.

I work in the field surveying and we use the machetes a lot when surveying in the woods. We recently purchased 2 of these machetes along with 2 gerber gators. Less than an hours use later, one of the SOGS had a large chunk taken out while beating through some bushes. About 10 minutes later, the second SOG had the top third of the blade completely shear off and go flying. Luckily no one was around and it didn't hit anyone. DO NOT BUY THIS MACHETE!!!

3 or 4 whacks at 2" saplings and it was bent. 4 more whacks and the tip snapped off at the first saw tooth. Looks pretty but looks can be deceiving. Blade was very whippy more like a saw than a machete.

This machete worked great for 30 minutes clearing light brush and thorns. After that the blade started bending and even split in a couple of places. It's advertised as high carbon steel but high carbon steel usually breaks before it bends. The areas that broke could be bent back and forth several times until they broke apart completely. A knife should be made of a hard material and this item was definitely not as advertised. Also once the blade was warped it didn't fit in the sheat and just shreaded the stiching. Don't understand why something with an 18 inch blade would be made of mild steel. I did purchase 2 other SOG products that were made of the right steel and are still working great. This machete was a piece of crap.

I have purchased items from SOG and found the quality outstanding and had no hesitation to purchase the machette for our camping expeditions. This so called machette broke into three pieces on a small sapling and when I say small it was no bigger than the diameter of my pinkie... I actually used my camping knife (a SOG creed) to cut the sapling down. SOG should be ashamed to put thier name on a low quality product like this. I honestly belive that the Walmart camping machette would be of better quality than this. They should reanme it the MASHOTTY. If someone wants to respond to this and tell me how to post pictures I would like you all to see this in pieces without a scratch, mark, or any blemish on the blade. Like I said I do own other SOG knives and the quality is unparalleled however this new cheap line of products they are putting out is garbage.

I used the machete this weekend to start clearing vines and brush from a hillside. The machete worked very well, slicing through the tangled growth with little effort. As I moved down the hill, I put the machete back in its scabbard. When I later pulled the machete from the scabbard, I had to use my left hand to hold the scabbard down while I pulled the blade out with my right hand. Little did I know that, on only the second time the blade had been put in the scabbard, it had severed all of the stitches holding the scabbard together. When I pulled the blade out, it took part of my left index finger with it. Result - lots of blood, but no permanent damage. It could have been much worse. Be warned.

I was looking at the Gerber machete and read a review that mentions its blade not being full tang. So I looked at the SOG because it was listed as what others looked at when shopping for the Gerber. I did further research and discovered that the SOG was not only full tang, but sticks out past the handle. So I'm not worried about it flying out of the handle.

Very very sharp!I want to note that I sliced the tip of my thumb off the very first time I took it out of the sheath. Keep your fingers away from the sheath opening (the tip has grown back to my amazement). I have chopped small branches in one stroke. Its nice and light.

For the price this machete can't be beat.

Sharp concave ground blade. Reasonable Tang depth into the grippy, medium sized handle. Saw back does a very good job and is quite sharp. Packs well alongside or inside a day pack with a little lashing work. The two holes in the front of the handle would allow you to lash this onto a 2-3 ft stick for better reach and force when needed in the field. Rubberized handle is comfortable and does a good job of staying in your hand with a full swing and reducing impact injury. Only downside I found was the steel insert in the base/bottom of the handle are sharp teeth... maybe good for combatives with zombies, but not for use as a hammer, and might cause yourself scraps and cuts that could become hazardous when in the field, especially in a survival situation. I'd suggest dremmling or filing this down a bit if you will be using this primarily as a camp/survival tool.

The case is a low-medium quality/design solution: foam padded nylon cover, plastic insert for saw top, velcro closure around handle (marginal security), no drainhole, belt loop is soft nylon with a single stitch line on each side (likely to break under heavy field conditions). If you want to "ranger" this out, I'd suggest you restitch or replace the belt loop, drill a few drain holes, sew on a good nylon strap/snap solution for retention, and wrap the whole thing in your favorite color of 550 Cord and/or duct tape and create a few much need lashing points. Since cases are so critical for serious field work, I'd pay just as much for a well designed, milpsec Kydex sheath as I did for the machete (hint, hint SOG!)
