SOG Sogfari Machete Review

My son bought this SOG Sogfari 10″ Tanto Machete a while back so I decided to do a quick review and see what you think. It is pretty sharp right out of the box, it chops very well and looks pretty cool too. And it’s right around $25 on Amazon.

Looks alot like the gerber gator. The problem with the saw back, is that when you boton with it, it chews the crap out of your baton, tho the saw worked ok. Good review bro

I got the Gerber Gator Machete Jr at wally world for 17 and change. A word of caution on yours. Mine came with a lanyard that is specifically made to loop over the front of the handle and prevents your hand from moving forward if you lose your grip. If that one came with one I’d suggest putting it back on for this reason. There is a video of the Gerber compared to another and a military issue machete and it performed well. I got it specifically to saw off pine branches and stumps for lighter wood. I live in NC and there are lots of pines around. I wlll be using the Nano wood stove so this tool will come in handy for those purposes.

I enjoy your channel and subscribed as soon as I saw some of your vids. I use your amazon link too but not sure how it works. If I click on it and save stuff to cart and leave will you still get credit when I log back in later then purchase?

Thanks Bryan!

Arkansas Bushcraft says:

looks ok

Review Canada says:

I almost bought it today, the saw looked really dull though like youd have to sharpen it. Like it comes dull on the saw end but the blade end comes sharp. I just like it cause its all black and is slightly unique . I might pick it up . In canada its 35 bucks

charles merritt says:

I use these every now and then to cut like fishing pole reeds. But for chopping I use a hatchet, thanks for the video.

I have the 15″ Walmart exclusive and recommend it for the price.

Living Survival says:

Nice review, actually seems like a decent product from SOG. Bryan please wear some gloves and steady that log you chop on before you go to the ER missing a finger!!! Scare me every time I watch!

slycop says:

I got one and I love it.picked mine up for $19.99

MrLeonidas0001 says:

Andy Tran has some good survival tips 🙂 Great video – I have not been a fan of the SOG machetes so far, but I really like their tomahawks. This looks pretty good though! You can really tell this machete excels at cutting the green wood. Thanks for sharing!

I own a SogFari 13” machete. The 3Cr13 steel is quite shity chinese steel. Many people complained their Sogfaries broke, chiped. Bought it several years ago. But now I wouldn’t buy it again. 

kory bleu says:

Great review. 

SyderSide HD says:

very good video

Jason Van Halen says:

I have this. Looks and feels like the flimsy piece of junk that it is. However…. It really works well. Amazingly well. Buy ’em cheap for hacking at stuff around the yard, and it’ll really surprise you.

Jay Gotti says:

I just bought and tried it out and I think its pretty good. Not idea for chopping bush tho.. But great tool
