Ultimate, Compact, Multi-tool, Survival Axe
Where does one even begin with the OGT Survival Axe? This is no mere tool – it's practically a sidekick, ready to step in when the going gets tough, or when you simply need a hand (or blade) in the great outdoors.
For a price of $60, you're getting your hands on a multi-tool powerhouse with 31 distinct features. And let me tell you, it's not a gadget festooned with frivolities – every single component of this axe is purpose-built and designed with functionality in mind.
From the moment you grip the ultra-strong, lightweight glass-filled nylon handle, you'll sense the seriousness of this tool. The all-steel full tang design assures you of its strength and durability, while the resharpenable hatchet blade stands ready for tasks like chopping, clearing debris, or even demolition.
It's not just an axe – that's the beauty of it. The hammer head and claw render tent stake installation and removal a breeze, and I can see how useful it would be when sprucing up your deer stand.
There's a 6-inch bi-metal saw blade tucked neatly within the handle. Pull it out, lock it in place, and you've got yourself a tool that can saw through just about anything the wilderness throws your way. And if you're ever in a tricky situation on the road, the car escape tool, which includes a seat belt cutter and window punch, could quite literally be a lifesaver.
Ever found yourself in need of a gas valve shut-off wrench in the wild? It's an unlikely scenario, but should it ever arise, the OGT Survival Axe has got you covered. There's even a bottle opener integrated into this feature – proof that the designers knew that sometimes, surviving the great outdoors is as much about the little comforts as it is the big challenges.
Weighing just over 1.5 pounds and a compact 11 inches long, it's got the heft you'd expect from a serious tool, yet it's small enough to stash in your glove box or bug out bag. And with its rubberized coated handle, you can rest assured it won't slip out of your grip when you need it most.
I admire the practicality of this tool. It's clear that a lot of thought went into the design, ensuring it would be of real use in genuine outdoor situations. This isn't some over-hyped gizmo to impress your friends with – it's a solid piece of equipment that stands up to the rigors of outdoor life, whether you're camping, hunting, hiking, or caught in an unexpected survival scenario. And that's the kind of gear I can get behind.
