With a tough 2 3/4-inch 3CR13 stainless steel blade, the Voodoo Hawk Mini tomahawk ($58) can deftly handle whatever you throw at it—or for that matter, throw it at. It's the latest from SOG Knives, an operation with three decades of tactical tool-making experience inspired by actual Vietnam War combat survival gear.
In addition to its extended cutting edge, this handy little hatchet sports a serious spike for piercing. As with other multi-tools, its head can also pound and pry nails, and tackle a wide assortment of tasks in the field. When not in use, its ballistic nylon sheath houses it on your belt loop.
Just over a foot long, this hard-ass 'hawk weighs in at a pound and a half. Beyond the Satin finish shown above, it's also available in all Black. You know, if you're looking for a hiking, hunting and camping tool that's a little less flashy, but still highly capable.
