I think that is more of a combat design. For hunting in the back country I prefer a small hand ax. The hammer is often as important as the edge.

Agree. I have a cheap camp hatchet I bought at a yard sale for something like $5. Small enough to pack. Heavy enough head to still chop efficiently, nice flat back for hammer chores. Maybe a touch heavy for prolonged hand to hand fighting, but probably work in a pinch if it had to. Not likely to face an armor wearing foe that requires a battle axe to use for human can opening.

I have a nice $14 Coleman camp Hatchet from Walmart. I may buy some "Gobly d gook" Tactical One I can chop a Turkey Neck with......When i'm not Trying to Build back my Knife Collection, or Buy Ammo...

It seems the Boy Scouts were right after all.

Agree, it's too short for back country use - they folks that use these things a lot seem to like 17". This looks like rip off of old Vietnam Tomahawk.
