New SOG Camp Axe
« on: February 02, 2017, 06:46:50 PM »
I just browsed SOG website, and noticed this new axe:
https://www.sogknives.com/type/2017/camp-axe.html
Unlike a lot of modern axes coming out theese days it actually looks like a sensible tool. Nice round handle, a functional looking axe head with a good hammer. 
The price isnt bad either.

Has anyone seen one in the flesh?

I have seen one in hand, but it looks pretty nice.

I would agree it looks very useful.  However, I just picked up the small hand hatchet with the knive in the handle by gerber for 15. That's pretty hard to beat and it actually takes a pretty good edge.

Still if the price is right this would be pretty tempting.

Contact Grant (DEF) (boss), he shared in another thread that he is a SOG dealer and was prepping an order, may improve the price. 
It does appear to be a hardy tool, just not in the market for another at this time.

I have to say, I hadn't seen it in the catalogue until Gaute pointed it out, and now I figure I need one too.   :ahhh

I'm putting in an order in the next few days, and SOG confirms these are available now if anyone is interested.  :D

I opened mine up today and holy hell this bugger is sharp!

If you get one, be very careful taking it out of the clamp pack as it is liable to bite you, and it with bite HARD.

I haven't done anything with it but so far I really like it.  The nylon handle keeps it light but all the weight is focused on the head so it will likely chop really well.

And there isn't even the slightest hint of rattle, flex or looseness in it at all, which is the most important thing in a striking implement.

So far I really like it, but we'll see how well it holds up to playing this summer!

I actually did cut my self opening it... On the blister pack! Boy, that plastic was sharp. I didnt even notice until I saw all the blood.

I just had a minute to play with it, and I like what I see so far. Its nice and tight, the balance is good and I like the shape of the head.
