Schrade Survival Hatchet

Lightweight and measuring in at about a foot in length, the Schrade Survival Hatchet borders on everyday carry material — for woodsmen, anyway. For the rest of us, it’s a solid addition to your camping gear or bug out bag. The axe features a titanium nitride coated stainless steel blade for durability as well as a flat striking textured hammer on the other end. The head is fused to a fibreglass filled handle that’s rubberized on the outside for grip and comfort, and which also stashes an oversized ferrocerium rod in its base that works with the top of the axe’s head — not the blade — to throw serious sparks.
