The SOG Tactical Tomahawk, is a great tool to have. Not only is it an amazing chopping tool for wood or rope, it is probably the most frightening tool of the trade. The Tomahawk has become one of my favorite tools ever since I watched The Last of the Mohicans as a kid but even more so when I saw an image from Afghanistan showing a Navy SEAL wielding a Tomahawk in combat. It is pretty awesome. It does however play an important role in the survivors hands. It is a powerful tool that I highly recommend, unfortunately SOG tools come at a price but they are worth the price. Especially since it is Gunny Approved, from Gunnery Sergeant R.Lee Ermy.
