While you could technically use any-sized axe for self defense applications, the new SOG Camp Axe — as its name suggests — was designed for hammering and chopping wood at the campsite and around your home, as well as as hammering tent stakes, starting fires, etc via the stainless steel blade.
As compact as it is versatile, the SOG Camp Axe measures in at only 11.5 inches which makes packing it for a camping trip a cinch, while a glass-reinforced nylon handle keeps the axe’s weight down to a bit over 16 ounces — a weight that won’t tire you out during extended use. – Buy It
