This tool is a piece of junk. When extended into the operating position for use, it feels as if it will come apart and break.
The e-tool would not even rate for using in potting soil so do not even expect to use it in a camping environment.

I used this around my house to trim a lot of nasty brush and branches in areas where I could get to use my power trimmer, and it worked nicely. The trenching tool seems solid; this review is mainly for the machete. SOG stuff is real solid and after seeing some critical reviews I was happy to find it a good deal nicer than your generic machete, IMO. My only complaint is that I wish it were a tad longer. For the money I don't think you'll do better.

Was pleasantly surprised with the machete better than expected, the shovel is decent about what was expected for the price however has some nice options. Over all you can't beat the value for the price, Thanks STP you just keep doin' it...
