If you’ve ever been struck with the difficulty of choosing between outdoor-ready cutting tools, then we’ve got some good news for you. The next time you go on a long camping and hiking trip, you don’t have to worry about whether you need to pack a machete for clearing brush, a hatchet for chopping wood, and/or a pickaxe for splitting wood and breaking up the hard ground. Because the Ontario Knife Company has combined all three into one handy tactical blade.

Called the SP-16 SPAX, this tool is a member of the brand’s SPEC PLUS line of tactical offerings for military, sporting, and rescue use. Like the rest of the line, it is built from powder coated 1095 carbon steel (with a 52-54 HRC rating), is affixed with a comfortable Krayton handle that’s easy to grip in all conditions, and features a full tang construction. The 13.1″ SPAX also comes with a leather Cordura sheath, has a piped lanyard hole, and weighs a total of 26 ounces. And, just in case you need to open a fire hydrant or close a gas valve, the blade’s cutout is specially designed just for those tasks. Pick one of these tactical tools today for $65.

Purchase: $65
