SOG Knives Double Headed Axe w/Nylon Sheath - 2010 BCS
Developed by Thag the Conquerer in 406 B.C., the SOG Double Headed Axe is one of the oldest items that has been in continuous production. (Yes, beer is older.) But, according to Thag, the Double Headed Axe would never even have been invented if it weren't for beer. Thag also maintains, 'UNGH,' and 'AWGH,' and a few other guttural sounds that we didn't know how to spell. What he's trying to say is that the Double Headed Axe is based on the construction and durability of the Tomahawk. It can shape and split wood if you're out camping or sculpting those ridiculous bear-shaped front-door decoration things. It can also be used during military operations for breaching or extraction. The stainless steel head is mounted to a ballistic polymer handle with heavy-duty bolts and a steel ferrule to stand up to any punishment that you can dish out, whether you're chopping wood or lopping off zombie heads.

First, it is way smaller than I thought. Pretty much a double edged tomahawk rather than a full sized axe but still quite heavy. That said, its fun as hell. Tough as nails, throws very well (easy sticks with double edges) and takes a lot of abuse. One weird thing is that the head has a tendancy to "ring" like samurai swords in cheezy action movies. Sheath is high quality made, safe, and resonably comfortable to carry on a belt or bag but getting the axe in/out can be awkward because it takes 4 snaps to secure and they are on the bottom.
I got this on SAC and have really enjoyed it.
