SOG Has Made A Hatchet That’s Compact, Lightweight, And A Joy To Use For Smaller Tasks In The Backyard Or Out Camping.
The new Camp Axe from SOG is exactly as advertised. No, this axe won’t fell a 40-foot-tall tree, but if you’re looking to cut through some small brush, chop up kindling for the fire, or hammer in some tent posts, the Camp Axe can do it all with ease.
It’s small at just a shade over a pound in weight and a shade under a foot in length. This means it’s great for chopping in close quarters. The stainless blade has a black stonewashed finish and will stay sharp in the elements.
The glass-reinforced handle is strong and can hold its own if you need a makeshift hammer to drive in a spike or a post. The included GRN safe quickly wraps around the blade and stays snugly in place so you won’t have to worry about stepping on a rogue axe late at night.
At an MSRP of $59.95, the Camp Axe feels fairly priced. This axe might not be for Paul Bunyan, but it’ll be perfect for you the next time you want to sleep under the stars.Editor’s Note: This article was written by Mike Ableson.
