Zach Henderson: I've been through 3 in a week p.o.s. The first was bent straight out of the
package on top of that the grind was all fudged up and I thought ok must
have been a Friday job they were just ready to leave work so returned it
the second one had a messed up grind too but I was like well at least it's
not bent the very first piece of wood I hit with it knocked the head loose
I called sog and they said it was abuse that I was not supposed to hit wood
with it even though the package says great for chopping and clearing
vegetation go figure.. Walmart let me exchange it a second time now I have
a new one that I'm scared to even look at wrong for fear it might break .
Do not buy if you expect a good woods tool I don't even know if I trust
this as a weapon . I know I would not bet my life on it and have zero trust
in it but hey it looks good on the wall at least
GuitarGodgt: I dipped the handle of mine in plasti dip. I hated how slick the handle
was. Feels real nice in the hand now.
pilgrimfarmer: We have been using, and abusing, a couple of SOG FastHawks since Christmas.
No issues at all yet, very satisfied. So satisfied I bought a third one as
a backup. Man are those things SHARP!!! from the factory. We have found
them to carry easily, and chop with incredible force. Seems like it makes a
better weapon than a tool though. Over all, I prefer a small 12 inch
machete to a tomahawk for general purpose use, but the FastHawk certainly
has it's place, and is a good investment.
solaceofwinter: not designed for outdoor use? what was it designed for then?
Cr0cket20: Huh, I thought it did pretty well considering its size and weight. Nice.
MrLeonidas0001: Yeah, I use the FastHawk quite a bit, but not like this - so I think you
did quite well!
jjongeneel22: that crap blade will bend from JUST wood in the first hour. Price wize not
a bad buy, but definately not a work horse
mizooch70: I have one too and use it around the house for splitting small logs for the
fireplace. In a couple of weeks about be spending some time in the forest
and running it through the paces. Very cool vid buddy.
MrLeonidas0001: And pretty neat technique! Never seen it before - looks like a lot of work,
but its effective.
IdealHolsters: Have one. Too time consuming for me. Sawvivor and a large camp knife for
splitting has been the best setup. Side note, the SOG Fusion Fasthawk is
very light weight. Nice review :)
S Bre: I thought this was for putting into peoples head. :/
TheWilderness333: Great tool and demo. Wish I still had some snow :)
2shirtsproductionz: whats the first knife on the left in the intro 0:01
Andrew Smithens: Or shins
The Late Boy Scout: I suppose it could if you lash it properly. :)
Sixpack1970: I snagged one of these about 4 months ago for $25 on sake. I broke a light
within the first hour and had to put it away. I think it will serve me well
while backpacking though.
Ed Schembri: Would you say this tomahawk would split larger wood? If not, I wouldnt have
any use for it as my knife (Fallkniven S1) can baton easily through
thickness like that. (if im perceiving the thickness correctly) Nice video
Glock Brothers: Would you Call it a Toma-Hawk, or since it's so little and light a Chicken
Hawk? Nice in-use Review.
The Late Boy Scout: Haven't tried that hatchet. I'll have to get a hold of one and see what I
think. Based on how it looks, though, I think that Fiskars hatchet is
probably better for this kind of work.
The Late Boy Scout: Kershaw G10 Hawk.
EmpathyWorks: 1:25 good grief. I think ill stick with my machete. :P
The Late Boy Scout: Never tried that. I'd be a little wary of having that blade facing up at me.
J DinTN: Not always that useful... but these tomahawks are always just so cool to
hold and use!
ianrsigel: I prefer a heavier hand/wood axe with a thicker-wedge head. What most
people object to is the additional pack weight when humping gear over
extended distance. While that is certainly a concern, the energy expended
carrying a few more ounces is offset by the lesser energy needed to split
or chop wood with with a more effective axe head.
suburban sentinel: Nice demo!
Steeleprophet: It throws nice too!
TooMuchT.V.: I got one for xmas this year. Not a bad little hawk. The grip texture sucks
though, I dipped my handle into rubber, it's great now.
Videonation365: 1:21 --Whatchya doin? "Oh, just beating my wood.".........."It's getting
hard here".."I need a hard surface to drop that big ol log onto" lmao, im
sorry. I haven't been able to be immature for three years.
clangerbasher: There are so many different tomahawks on the market. It is hard to sort
cheap and "value" from "you must be having a laugh". I found out the other
day Mora make a small axe. Eager to try the latter.
MrLeonidas0001: Man I love the FastHawk! Great vid bro!
Patrick Lundström: Was this axe ever really mean't to be used for chopping wood? :)
TheStig000: Man, it looks tough to work on that snow. There's nothing hard to work on!
The Late Boy Scout: Didn't realize that. I'll have to check it out.
The Late Boy Scout: It would be less work on softer wood, or with a heavier axe head. This
tomahawk head is relatively light, and the wood was a type of oak.
tj m: You ever try planting the spike in a log and splitting the wood over the
blade baton stile ?
mikedifeo: Good vid. I bought 2 of them. I have them in my vehicles for emergencies.
They are cheap enough that if I ruin them I can get replacements. I like
the way the handle is becuase it acts as an electrical insulator and that
can be handy in an emergency.
MrEasytarget925: Interesting way to test the fasthawk. Awesome job
MakingTheCut .: Really want to get an axe/chopper for my system. Great video
Ron Jeremy: the fasthawk is made for throwing but still gets the job done.
Tactical: do you prefer this one or the full size? thanks for the vid-Tac
305ssmonte: That is a good method.Very safe.
The Late Boy Scout: Nice. It's a fun little hawk.
Carson Pedroli: Could the Fasthawk go on the side of my Maxpedition Falcon II?
MrRemi528: not designed for outdoors? um it was designed to be a campers tool.
DakotaLD22: Looks like a good digging tool for Burying Logs
matthalo871: I dont think its really meant to do work like an full size axe I think its
more of a door breaching tool or back up if you drop your knife in a fight.
The Late Boy Scout: Pretty much for splitting heads n' stuff. :)
formatC2: SOG FastHawk or Fiskars X7 hatchet? I already have a fiskars and LOVE IT!
would it be worth it to get one of these fancy fasthawk? which one would
