SOGfari Sawback Tanto Machete

The New for 2013 SOGFari 10" Tanto Machete is a lightweight "Zombie Apocalypse" survival and exploration knife that's ready for your next adventure.  It's perfectly balanced in size and weight, for use in a variety of scenarios using the tanto blade or saw back.
 Machetes are the "Do it All" of outdoor knives and certainly one of the most useful edged tools on the planet. For brush clearing, trail blazing, shelter building, crop harvesting, meal prep, hunting and last ditch self-defense they're hard to beat. 

When we handled the SOGfari Tanto Machete we noted it was lightweight and the balance was spot on.  The kraton handle provided a great grip and was comfortable during extended use. When you whip it through the air it really sings.  
The sawback cuts deep and is a nice addition to the machete's usefulness.  There is also a spiked tang for pounding and scraping on the butt end.  To make a survival spear simply can mount the tanto machete to a stick using the lanyard holes on the handle.
