Machete is well-balanced. However, the axe/pick is a bit top-heavy and the handle is a bit small (and I have average sized hands). I beleive I can fix this by wrapping the handle with tennis grip tape.
This is a great line of products! All of the equipment is built sturdy and will stand up to hard use. The entrenching tool folds out and locks nicely, and breaks down very small when you are done with it. For the price, this kit can't be beat. A much better way to get outfitted than to buy each piece individually.
If you need all the items listed, then this kit it is a bargain. Purchased individually they would be a lot more expensive. The quality is good, with typical rugged SOG construction. They will work nicely for my limited needs, but don't confuse them with the super high end SOG products found at specialty knife stores/etc.
The pocket tool is nice piece with a good sharp cutting blade that is near razor sharp. The " tomahawk" head was a little small but has a good working edge. the quality of the shovel could've been better, but should work for most camping needs. For the Cyber Monday 70 dollar price the kit was worth it.
The knives and tools SOG makes are tough and dependable so far. They seem fit to do the jobs I need them for.
I bought 5 sets for emergency gear for the cars of myself and children. Hopefully they'll never be needed, but, if they are, the kits represent an excellent assortment of cutting, hacking and chopping tools. With the added bonus of a multitool, all with canvas carrying cases.
Nice kit has everything you might need for camping. Everything seems to be first quality. I don't think these items are factory rejects and then sold to walmart for a great deal. Everthing comes sheaths so your back pack wont get cut up during your hike. The only issue is the tool logic signal fire pictured is not the one sent. They sent me the Sog Firestarter/sharpener SH03-CP which is junk with a $20 dollar value. If you were purchase all of the pieces separate it would be close to $200.
Multi-tool is very handy. Shovel is on the small side, but will stow in the trunk well. Machette needs to be sharper, but tomahawk is sharp and has good balance for throwing. Overall just what I needed.
I bought this for my fiance for Christmas and he was like a little kid with a new toy. He said the quality was excellent and was way more than he expected.
Our son loved it. Good quality for the price.
SOG is replacing it though.
My girl got this for me for Christmas and I love it. The tomahawk is perfect size and weight and very sharp! The only complaint I have is the grip is very slick (could fly out of your hand) but wraping it in paracord should take care of that. The shovel is very compact (folds up) and seems tough, only complaint is I had to work the locking mechanism for about 10 min. back and forth to get it to work (very tight). I thought it was broke at first. The machete is very sharp and well made, the saw edge on back would be very handy, only draw back very small for machete but will be easy to carry. Multi-tool is well made and consist of a knife, pliers, flat/phillips, can opener and bottle opener. The knife is also very sharp. Have not tried the sharpener/fire starter yet.
We bought this set to place in our bug out kits. We have yet to test them out, but they seem sturdy and well made. Compared to other sites, the price was fantastic!
Great product, and the great quality as stipulated by the manufacturer, definitively superseded all my expectations. The product arrived exactly as described, and the overall purchase was a great deal. I am very happy with this product and definitively recommend the manufacturer and seller.
Loved the Walmart price$$ and how SOG makes quality tools and equipment for everyday uses and emergencies!
Products seem to be of good material.. Haven't field tested yet..
Good price for what you're getting... Recommended!
I ordered this product expecting high quality. From the shipping delay to the actual inspection of the product, I was disappointed. The product was recieved approximately 4 days past the expected date on their response. Just stated "held up in transit".The "screwdriver" in the knife was loose. The strike flint would barely throw a spark. I expected a full tang on the tomahawk. It wasn't. For the not so picky individual, it wouldn't be bad but if you want high quality, I'd be leary of purchasing this product.
I have owned two previous SOG multitools and had no issues. Although they lacked Leatherman or Victorinox quality of design and intuitiveness, they were well made, interesting, and delivered as advertised. However, this multi-tool broke while I was learning the functions out of the box! It wasn't even used in any application! I was unable to release the screwdriver when fully extended. It broke both my thumbnail and the release lever trying to release the screwdriver. The knob is pressed on rivet-style and cannot be repaired. And there is no advantage to the the compound priors, as the metal body of the body is made of foil and began to fold (deform) while simply squeezing it. The shovel is a joke. The washer that maintains angular position of the shovel is of the lowest quality possible and began to fold (deform) under hand pressure on the blade. I used a real folding portable trenching shovel in the military and this is unserviceable as a functional tool. I did not open the other products, having already given up on SOG. Cannot believe they let their name be used on this. Never again! SOG would be well advised to protect their brand. This is pretend stuff better utilized as a prop in a play than real service. Walmart service was commendable throughout the process. Delivered to the store for pick-up ahead of schedule, and returned with equal ease the very next day.
fast and easy ordering and pickup
Notice the first image with the bundle, that's what I (and likely you) will get- it's a fire striker on one side, and a cheapish knife sharpener on the other. No whistle, but worst of all, no removable striker- you have to use something else (like the supplied multi tool) to get your flame. Also, don't base the size off the shovel, if you're expecting the larger military sized one, it's about 2/3 the size of what I was expecting (being a veteran). All that being said though, it's a decent price for the set.
