Schrade SCAXE2 Extreme Survival Hatchet With Fire Starter


Few days ago we talked about Leatherman’s Signal Multi-Tool that was made especially for the wilderness. That gadget is awesome, of course, but what happens when you’re in the woods and you need something bigger, with more power, to cut something down?  Schrade SCAXE2 Extreme Survival Hatchet will provide you with everything you need to survive outside in the wilderness.

This amazing outdoor tool is 11.8 inches (30.0cm) long and it weights 2lbs, that means that it will be very easy to control and that is very important if you find yourself in a survival situation. The handle itself is 5.2″ (13.2cm) long and it’ll fit perfectly in your hand. The blade is made of 3Cr13 stainless steel and its length is 3.8″ (9.6cm), so this hatchet can cut through some thick trees and other objects out there in the wild.

The head is designed in a way to prevent the axe from jamming when cutting through the wood, so you’ll never again have to struggle to get it out, you can just quickly strike again. The stainless steel will prevent this hatchet from corroding, so you can use it in any weather condition and even under water.

That powerful black head of the axe is attached to the solid, glass-fiber-filled handle that is also painted in black. This dark paint gives this hatchet a very intimidating and mighty look. The lower part of the handle is ergonomically shaped and made of rubber, so this axe will never slip from your hand. Also regarding the handle, on the upper end, behind the blade, you’ll find a pommel that can be used for striking down nails, breaking rocks or any kind of hammering you can think of.

Schrade SCAXE2 Extreme Survival Hatchet comes with a very durable case that will allow you to wear it on your belt and easily access it with the use of one hand. Like all this is not enough, this stunning black hatchet hides one more awesome secret. Inside the handle, you’ll find a 3″ long ferrocerium rod. This will allow you to easily start a fire after you use this amazing axe to build yourself a shelter.
