I bought this while working at a sporting goods store. While there, I started getting into camping. Prior to one such excursion, I purchased one of these tomahawks; much to my satisfied surprise. I didn't realize just how versatile this tool is. Chopping wood, splitting logs for firewood, driving tent spikes, digging a "cat-hole," and numerous other uses. Now, I don't go camping, and if I can help it hiking, without it. And for the "wringers" I've put it through, for it to still be intact, speaks volumes for it durability.
