The SOG Fasthawk is faster, lighter, more agile, and easier to carry than its sibling, the tactical tomahawk. This is not to say it is not still powerful. It is a toll that will be used for much more than you might anticipate. Chopping, breaking, cutting, hammer, piercing, digging, prying, pounding, shaving, notching, opening, and throwing are all capabilities well within the Fasthawk's reach. The 420 stainless steel head with a hardcased black coating is mounted to the ballistic polymer handle with heavy-duty bolts and a steel ferrule to insure the strongest integrity.
