Elite tool for chopping, splitting and hammering A heavy, full-size axe is overkill for most outdoors people, who usually only need a big enough blade to accumulate campfire kindling, trimming small branches, etc. When unfolded, the tool hatchet is a 5-inch-by-2.5-inch head. At first look, you might think it is a small blade, but the hardened, sharp stainless steel blade packs enough power to chop thick wood sticks and split logs due to the wide cheek design. When it's chopping time, the first-of-its-kind collapsible hatchet blade unfolds and locks into place. Then, when the job has been done, it folds to provide safe carrying and room-saving storage, takes less space than a rolled-up newspaper, its lightweight and compact size make it easy to transport and stow. The hammer pad is made of hardened stainless steel and is designed to quickly hammer tent pegs and wooden stakes. The pattern on the hammer allows traction and friction for various fieldwork tasks – like beating tree bark to create strips of fiber as tinder and even smashing rocks when needed. The hollow, glass-reinforced polymer shaft contains a storage capsule for personalized, mission-specific kits. It is made of hard-anodized 7075T6 aluminum and 420J2 stainless steel.
