I can't wait to see the mayhem that is sure to follow.

Very interested in your results. I'll stay tuned.
I hadn't considered that. The handles on both, however, are on the light side to do much duty as a baton.

The impression I get is that the grooves are there so you can choke up and do finer work, and I'll be testing that theory first, later this morning....

This is good. I can't wait for the testing to start. I've already got a couple of questions.

The A.T. VTAC looks like it has a stylized diamond plate handle. I'm curious to see the effect this has on grip. Also, the head and handle seem to be at slightly odd angles to one another. The head appears to be tilted down in the pictures. I am wondering if this is truly the case and what benefit it serves.

I've got a couple more questions, but I'll wait till the testing is underway.

Good Luck Gentlemen.

Okay, so the first test, and fail.

I attempted the trusty head shave. Shaving your own head with a hawk is the epitome of manly, and tactical.

Neither hawk did the job. The SOG is slightly sharper.

I thought of angles, this feat is tough enough with a knife, let alone a big, heavy hawk, so I tried my arm. Nothing from the CS, took off some hairs with the SOG.

I know that by nature, these aren't designed for personal grooming. But worth a try.

So, off to the coconuts....

Bad idea....

So I got two coconuts, and some 550 cord, made little coconut hammocks, and hung them.

I tried the spikes first.

Since the coconuts were free swinging (let it go, it's too easy), they would require some technique to damage.

Some things became readily apparent. The SOG spike requires finishing. It damaged the coconut, but did not penetrate.....
