SOG SOGFari 10'' Tanto Tip Machete
Quick, Maneuverable, Light
This thing is en-point! SOG has balanced the handle ergonomics, the corner of the tanto cut, and the center of mass of this machete. It's easy to swing, easy to sharpen, and easy to twist out of a deep cut. Outstanding outdoor/survival tool-- I bring it to the woods everytime.
The saw teeth on the back edge are good for marking. And the tang extends about 1cm from the handle, which is useful for pounding stakes and whatnot (maybe also for pounding steaks).
Good luck finding such a machete for the price of this one.

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

I bought it at Dicks Sporting Goods a few months ago and I've decided never to buy another knife brand ever again. Its my favorite overall of my collection. Its not just a cool looking knife it works EXTREMELY well. The full saw is extremely well and the tanto blade makes it a complete package. It's very durable and light weight so you can use it for about anything. For knife/machete fanatics out there this is what you want right here.

Amazing but small
I bought this as a gift for my brother but I end up using it almost every time I go hiking with him. This machete is excellent but it's short blade makes it less practical than larger machetes. However, this product serves its purpose and can easily rip through brush and small branches. It's not only useful but it looks really fine. The black coating on the tanto blade makes it look menacing so its looks alone are amazing!
