This traditionally-modeled, two-handed camp axe will make your life easier when you’re off the grid. Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical in Chattanooga, Tenn., a specialist in applying modern engineering to centuries old tool and weapon concepts, designed the CRKT Nobo T-Hawk. It is made from a solid chunk of 1055 carbon steel that is hot forged into a rock-solid head and features a hammer finish. With primary and secondary edge bevels that are flat ground, it cuts through timber like a beaver. The thick wooden handle is made in the USA from Tennessee hickory. It's comfortable in hand and sealed with a lacquer coat that adds durability whenever you’re in the backcountry. Whether you’re splitting wood or building a log cabin, you must have the Nobo T-Hawk!
