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!

Customer Ratings & Reviews

SOGfari Machete - Tanto 10" is rated 4.4667 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strength in balance The sogfari is so well balanced, It feels like an extension of my arm. We had some serious vines to clear and the blade sliced through with ease and even caught the loose vines with its teeth. Cleared a path in no time. One serious machete.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and well balanced Purchased it to assist in clearing brush at a local fishing hole. The lightness of the blade made me skeptical but the edge and ease in which it cut through thick brush and tree limbs impressed me for the price point. The sheath won't hold up for long so I will be looking for a more durable one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great blade, bad sheath Extremely sharp and very durable. The sheath leaves a lot to be desired however. Overall great tool but had to purchase a different sheath to carry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Knife, Horrible Sheath I just bought this knife a week ago and used it to chopmoff the head of a road kill buck. What a breeze. This thing is incredible and easy to handle, but twice I tried t sheath it and it went thru the top almost going into my leg. It is poorly made and I wil have to use duct tape or something to wrap the holes. Could have been a 5 Star Sorry. JJ-

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice knife. I bought this at Walmart a year ago and use it for branch removal. The sheath is kind of bad when putting in the blade and the saw does not always work the best but is still good enough to get the job done. Very Good and have not shown any wear and tear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool! I bought this about a year ago to clear out brush and briar behind my house. Works great. Very Sharp, Very Durable. I will be buying another SOG Machete in the future. I could use one with a longer blade, but the 10" does what its made to do and I am absolutely thrilled with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great besides the sheath Awesome buy for the money, but the sheath is a let down. Knife itself is sharp and heavy enough to take down trees but light enough to swing for a while
