    Awesome. Oh, and I know of no state that bans carry of a hatchet much less a folding hatchet. :p

    I like it. It looks like a great addition to the console of my CJ7.

    If you need an axe every day, this probably isn't the one, but it'd be great for a camping trip. It's along the same lines as those folding shovels. I don't need to drive around with a full sized shovel and axe in my vehicle.. but a couple of folding pieces for occasional use? Sure!

    Texas where you can shoot anyone at pretty much anytime for any darn reason as long as you were resolutely pissed off about the person(s) prior to dispatching them.
    But you can't carry on your person a work tool.

    The shooting part in Tx is fine ,but they don't want us taking their scalps for trophys so no tomahawks

    I second this little guy!

    My little brother bought me one last year. pretty handy to have in the backpack or the truck.

    I'd be willing to bet that it won't do any better than a Kershaw OutCast 9.5 inch blade of 3/16 inch thick D2 steel. With a new edge is wickedly sharp hacks through brush like a razor, chops and splits wood and holds its razor edge. Is a bit cumbersome at the dinner table. but still an excellent camp / survival knife D2 is some tough stuff. The OutCast would be lighter and easier to pack too

    Correction I just read the specs on bothThe OutCast weights 22oz the Kick Axe weights 18oz but is rated for light duty to cut 2.5 inch limbs. The OutCast wails through 4 inch and 6 inch limbs and splits logs

    Maybe I can write up a test report and sell it to a magazine.
    According to the Gerber website they will be available July 1, 2009.

    I don't know about the folding axe but I have been eyeing a tomahawk for a while now and plan on getting one just because. I understand that the military still has an issue version. What an awesome weapon!

    Interesting. If the price came down I might be willing to try it for hiking/camping.

    You may want to check with your local DA s office first to see if carrying a hatchet, tomahawk or small axe would violate any state or local laws.
