There was a huge pile of junk wood in the backyard that I have been putting off burning and I finally got around to taking care of it on Saturday with winter coming on on a drizzly morning - the wood soaking wet. I found some dry board for kindling and thought well why not try out that little SOG hatchet, sending it back is almost more trouble than it is worth at this point anyway. Hmm, it made short work of the dry board and I already had a pile of kindling started, so why not try it out with some dry log? I found a round section of dry log and just started whacking around the edges on it and I had a big pile of kindling within minutes, whittling the round to about half it's size, but no way the SOG chops through it; I have the "Silky" for that. The fire lit instantly with a butane lighter, and I was burning wood the rest of the day and finally got that chore done.
On Saturday I also used the "Silky" from a recent purchase for a little pruning around the yard and it cut through a 6" round green tree limb in a couple of minutes that saved me from a chain saw purchase for such a little job, and from all the noise. No doubt it cuts through 6" dry rounds even quicker.
This hatchet is compact and hefty and just the right size for the trail - any bigger or heavier and you won't want to take it with you. It is the perfect size for chopping kindling wood to start a fire and in my opinion that is it's main purpose, and that is enough for me to make this purchase useful, and I am happy that I bought it now. I also have a "Silky" that I bring along on the trail for cutting wood, but it doesn't chop kindling. I also use both of these items at home. And the quality of the SOG F09N-CP is such that it will last a lifetime.
Pros: small and RELATIVELY light. It fight great on the side of my pack. It came sharpened, didn't require any work. Cut green branches like mozzarella cheese. Sturdy one piece construction. Great for the trail!
The head makes this more of a special use tool for either precision cutting, or jobs on the smaller side. In fact, it is somewhere between a survival knife and a traditional hatchet.
The handle is fine, but rather specific in how to hold it comfortably as the defined finger grooves are not very forgiving.
The sheath leaves much to be desired. It does not close tightly over the blade and on more than a few occasions, I've found my fingers or palm on the corner of the blade even with the sheath snapped on.
The blade is sharp, but as mentioned, quite thin. A result of the thin and small head size is a low mass when chopping. Again, this is more of a surgery tool than a chop-your-way-out-of-a-jungle tool.
If you need a smallish, lightish, tiny-bladed hatched, this fits the bill. It works fine for light duty chores. But if you need a real man's hand axe, there are much better (and more expensive options).
Me? This axe rides in the side pocket of the front passenger side of my truck. I have a timberline on the driver's side Timberline Knives 6013 Russ Kommer Bush Pilot Survival Hatchet and an Estwing E45A Campers Axe Metal Handle Estwing in the back.
If this is what you need, then get it. If you want a traditional axe or hatchet, then keep looking.
