Holy carp, I don't really need one but love my SOG knives, and the reviews make me want one sooooo bad! :D

What could possibly be "tactical" about a tomahawk? Do we have native american SWAT teams roaming the woods?

Haven't you ever seen the Patriot

Actually, you can find quite a few references of units previously or currently deployed that choose to carry a 'hawk. As with any tool, it would be highly mission specific -- but the tomahawk does lend itself to being a nice CQB weapon and light breaching tool... also works great at puncturing tires to disable a vehicle

@jeremytheindian - I carry one when I'm hiking - in case squirrels ambush my nuts. So, I think "Tactical Tomahawk" is a valid descriptor, as I get tactical when defending my nuts...

Great news! It's $33.99!

Gashing your enemies has gotten $3 cheaper!

Is a family guy reference all it takes to get a popular deal these days?...

This tomahawk will break. I know two people beside myself who have bought this tomahawk, their's are broken too. The metal will bend and chip chopping soft sapplings, the handle will break if you chop something too hard. I guarantee it!

Again,

DO NOT BUY THIS!

@devexityspace I take it you have the wooden handled version? This is the revised version.

I can vouch for Cold Steel's "American Tomahawk" offerings, if anyone is looking for a similarly priced tomahawk. They use good steel, and the wooden handles haven't suffered any damage after heavy use. I'm not knocking the SOG, I've never used it even though I have used their knives with good results.

@devexityspace: Is there a legitimate reason you quoted one of the Yahoo reviews or was it just for the lulz?

I have to recommend this axe! I bought it and carried it during a hike on the Appalachian Trail for a week. I know it's a bit heavy for a backpacking axe, but I used it every single day. It was perfect for cutting firewood, I used it to make a bench out of a dead tree, and when I got bored, throwing it was pretty entertaining. I haven't had any problems with durability. I beat it up big time and it's still holding up great. Worth the money if you're an outdoors person!

@bstormla

Copying reviews...

Weird huh?

Writing your own review is not all that time consuming...

@azscott Yup, that's actually the one I was talking about (though apparently I didn't notice I typed 'Yahoo' rather than 'Amazon'). Not sure if devexityspace was trying to be funny or what, but if so I admit the humor escapes me.

Again, this isn't really a SOG tom. This is the "international" line of SOGS - cheap. This was designed after the Vietnam era Tomahawks carried by our troops. We had them because the M-16 was plastic and couldn't fight hand-to-hand with the heavy wooden AK47. The tomahawk was introduced as a hand weapon and it was very successful killing viet cong. This tomahawk is not for camping. Anyway, forget this one and purchase the wooden handle version found at Army Surplus shops everywhere.
