Usually, when you think about multi-tools, what comes to mind is something small enough to put in your pocket. A Leatherman, or maybe a Park Tool for your bike. Yet some of the most critically useful ones come in much larger sizes. Just take the Timahawk for example.
Like any great multitool, this axe is built to take on whatever the world throws at it – whether it be clearing brush on a hike, prying open a car door, or helping defend you and your family from an attacker. A full tang axe made from 4130 pre-hardened steel and given custom scales, this 5 pound piece of equipment can serve as an adze hammer, hoe, axe, breaching tool, or pry-bar all depending on how you use it. The wide range of utility on this American made tool makes it a no brainer for including in your bug-out-bag, or at the very least in the back of your truck – and a transport bag included with the axe makes transportation on the trail. Prices start at $240. [Purchase]
