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
