Gear Review: SOG Fasthawk Axe VS SOG Tomahawk Axe

Blade Length: 2 inches  Weight: 19 oz.  Overall Length:12.5 inches

Blade Length: 2.75 inches  Weight: 24 oz.  Overall Length:15.75 inches

Performed a quick field test on some oak firewood in the backyard.  Smaller oak limbs(4-6 inches in diameter) were cut in half easily with both SOG axes.  The largest piece(10-12 inches in diameter) the SOG Tomahawk was definitely easier, but the SOG Fasthawk did the job as well.  In addition, I pruned some small limbs(4-6 inches in diameter) off trees.  Again, I could not find a significant difference in performance between them.

I found the compact size of the SOG Fasthawk to be worth the slight sacrifice in performance over the SOG Tomahawk.  The Fasthawk will be allocated to my EDC(Every Day Carry) and the Tomahawk will find a home in my BOB(Bug Out Bag.)

Staying above the water line!

This past Christmas, our Wally World had a SOG Tomahawk (I don't recall which model) and and companion knife for $20 or $25 dollars. I didn't buy it, but wonder if I made a mistake on passing on the deal.

Oh well, Christmas is just around the corner, lol.

Thanks for the review.

Henry is right. The smaller one is much easier to carry around and can be great for hunting if used properly. Great and well written review mate.

Recently found the Estwing Blackhawk tomahawk on closeout from McCoy's Lumber. Originally $40, now down to $21. I think it is worth it. Like all Estwing tools, single piece steel tool. See link for description.
