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!
They could make it spring-assisted... oh my god, now I really want...All it needs is a holster to wear over ones shoulder and faster than you can say 'Autobots TRANSFORM!'...boom this thing unfolds for fun & games.
That thing is awesome. Must resist. Must show restraint.

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

I thoroughly disapprove of duels.
If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand
and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.
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
Mine is not a pretty picked up some file marks being re-profiled and put to work

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.
God bless our troops!
