1.0 Rating Blade broke on 1st use - 8/9/2010
Reviewer: Hammer
I was impressed when I opened the box. It's a good looking Machete. With the name SOG, I expected the thing to be very durable like all other SOG items I have owned. I noticed the blade was thinner than I expected. Even my el cheapo machete has a blade almost twice as thick as the SOG. The SOG blade flexed quite a bit when I first used it cutting underbrush on a deer food plot area this past Saturday. Matter of fact it flexed so much , it had a tendency to kick out of the woody undergrowth upon impact. That could cause personal injury if one is not wary of the flexing. My old heavier bladed machete being stiffer does not act that way. On the first morning of use, the blade broke clean in two. Not due to bending of the blade nor trying to free it from being stuck in wood. Nothing like that. When it broke I was cutting a 2 inch dia. softwood sapling, the first 45 degree cut on the vertical sapling, the blade broke from the saw tooth back to the sharpened edge, clean as a whistle, through and through. The break is approx. 3 inches from the handle. It gave way at the very first saw tooth, probably a weak spot from the overly agressive/ deep sawtooth design. I will be sending it back.
