If you’re packing an outdoor survival bag, start with the CRKT Pack Axe. Designed by Vietnam veteran Elmer Roush through the Forged by War program, this hatchet was built to cut while you’re on the run. It's made from 1060 carbon steel with an ergonomic hickory wood handle and a compact, lightweight frame that’s easy to strap to your backpack and carry through the brush.
Why choose this axe?
Knives and tools with wood handles require more attentive care than other more robust materials, like G10 or mircata. Prolonged exposure to heat or water can cause them to swell or crack, resulting in flawed grip. Always wash wood handles by hand and oil them at least once a year.
