As part of Brownells' new line of emergency gear, one intriguing and quite useful item is the SOG SOGfari 18-inch machete with saw-tooth ridge.

Handy for clearing brush, trimming vegetation or as a melee weapon in the zombie apocalypse, a sturdy blade is always a good thing to have around. With the included nylon sheath, it's perfect to have in the trunk of your car (or behind the back seat of a pickup truck) in case of emergency. A good machete is one of those items that you don't realize how useful they are until you need one.

This is the Cadillac of machetes, though. If your only frame of reference is the flimsy "machetes" that are sold with camping gear for $7.99, you might not realize the true utility of a cutting implement. This version, however, will stand up to yard work, tree pruning or other demanding tasks your landscaping may require. A comfortable rubber grip allows solid purchase, while a sawtooth ridge on the back of the blade allows for trimming of larger branches. Best of all, with an MSRP of $33, you can order several to have in your bug-out bag, car trunk and tool shed.
