    Well, you have yourself a good throwing "hawk" so that's good in and of itself.

    "I can kill hours many happy hours just throwing the tomahawk at a dead tree"

    I am glad that you said that and being a tree hugger has nothing at all to do with it.

    Many people do not realize that when a live tree sustains damage severe enough to weaken it - that tree becomes wide open to insect and disease infestation which can and often will spread to many neighboring trees of the same specie and it's possible to lose an entire stand of valuable trees just by initially causing damage to one live tree.

    Don't let a fellow tree hugger see you throwing a hawk at a dead tree...you'll have a buncha longhairs chaining themselves to your target singing that awful Kumbaya song...

    I have that model SOG, though, I havent done much of anything with it, yet. I agree with the author when he says "If I had it to do over again, I’d look for a tomahawk with a curved face, a hammer (not a spike) for added utility, ..."

    The flat face on the cutting edge, and perhaps the angle, are goofy. It strikes funny, like nothing I have ever used. Maybe thats why it throws & sticks well, but for tasks that require chopping, it leaves a lot to be desired.

    I am in no way a "tree hugger" and will never be...but dealing with the ash borrer beetles here in SW Ohio and having cut down nearly twenty dead ash trees just this year alone (many more to go) I have found myself being much more observant of the trees around me. If one learns to take even just a few moments every now and again to look up at them, you may find you've been missing out on some of the most beautiful and intricate things in nature.


    Good review Cayman. I have been in the market for a hatchet and have looked at the SOG. Like you, I think I'd rather have one with a wooden handle that could easily be replaced, and a hammer instead of a spike.

    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Thanks! Yeah, I'm an odd duck I guess...a tree-hugger gun-nut. There's got to be more of us. (I actually wrote about being a libertarian environmentalist on the site, but maybe not as coherently as I'd have liked. Might need to revisit that down the road). Your point that harming trees has financial consequences is right on the money too.

    Anyone who hasn't tried throwing the 'hawk, it's a treat.

    Thats kind of like a Battleaxe calling a Tomahawk an Assault Hatchet.

    Have one right behind me as we speak.

    Not really balanced but it can get the job done as far as chopping and other task. I'd rather use my Cold Steel Spetznaz shovel in a survival self defense situation though.

    A friend of ours celebrated a milestone birthday this spring. She's quite the outdoorsy type, drives a Jeep CJ, and she's mostly Cherokee, raised in that tradition on a res. To mark the occasion, I got her an SOG tomahawk to carry in her Jeep... I figured a 21st-century Cherokee needed a 21st-century tool. She loved it!

    Have one also, haven't tried to throw it yet. I was disappointed that the spike wasn't sharpened when I got it. But I plan to remedy that.
