The SOG Tomahawk model FO1T-N represents the best value in the tactical tomahawk market. These tools are usually meant for breaching operations, obstacle removal and extraction missions but they also work well on campsites hammering in tent stakes and hacking scrape wood into smaller pieces. Many people also put these into disaster preparedness kits for emergencies.
Its head is made of 420 stainless steel with a 2 and 3/4 inch edge on it and has a black oxide scratch-resistant slightly shiny coating which prevents corrosion. The handle is made of a strong and durable polymer and has a hole in it for an optional lanyard should you desire to attach one. The tomahawk is well balanced and weighs only 24 ounces and is about 15 to 16 inches long for easy handling and deployment. The fusion tactical tomahawk comes with a nylon sheath that simply snaps together to cover the blade and it has a belt loop on it as well for easy carrying and added safety. One side functions as a mini ax while the other side is more like a pickaxe/hammer… The side of the head has a beveled textured checkerboard surface for use as a hammering surface. The handle has a ferrule made of steel which prevents it from being split.
While there are other options on the market this is by far the best value at a retail price of around 60 dollars. These tools are extremely high quality and come sharp straight from the factory which means you do not need to try and sharpen it yourself at least initially. These items can be used for self-defense if need be and also can be thrown much like a throwing knife. These are very much the same concept as seen in the Call of Duty game Black Ops where it is an available throwing weapon as a secondary carry.
The FO1T-N makes for a great gift for a hunter, outdoors-man or camping fanatic. They also just look really really cool if you are a collector or looking for something to surprise a knife and tool enthusiast.
