Bolo Machete

Hardcased Black      Drop Point/Saw      Saw, Straight


The SOGfari machetes are exciting additions to the SOG family. One should not ponder whether they should have a machete, but should think about which size will work for them. Machetes are one of the more useful edged tools in the world. They have cleared brush, blazed trails, 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.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Bolo Machete is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Machete but I bought the bolo a week or 2 ago I used it for some light brush and it absolutely destroyed anything I threw at it but now the handle has a slight wiggle

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard working Machete I needed a small compact Machete to get to the back of my property. The Bolo style Machete is basically a large knife with excellent blade weight. I thought the Bolo would be too short, but it turned out to be just what I needed in tight areas with large brush to deal with. I was able to cut large limbs with the blade and the saw on the back of the blade. I've put the old WWII Jungle Machete away because it's no match for my new SOG Bolo style Machete.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so great Bought this three months ago and really hadn't had a chance to use it. Took it out to our property to walk the boundry and used it clear the trail after about 100 ft of light cutting noticed the blade was bent. never cut any thing bigger than .75 inches

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great handling!!! This is a fantastic knife for all my heavy yard work. I live in Florida and have coconut palms with sweet coconuts. This bolo makes fast easy work of a hard shelled fruit! Fantastic handling and accuracy. I love it , can't believe I never had one before.
