Tomahawk!  I was not considering a tomahawk as I went shopping for a light weight hatchet.  After talking to the helpful sales guy at House of Knives in Kelowna and holding the 24 ounce Fusion Tactical Tomahawk by SOG in my hand, I knew it was the perfect backpacking solution.

    Double Thumbs Up! I always wanted to carry a hatchet on my trips but left them at home because they were too heavy. But this tomahawk is so light weight that I won’t be without it now. Of course it comes with a cover that you can attach to your belt etc.
    Whenever I used one of our hatchets on a family camp out I never liked the short handle to do any type of bush work. The 16 inch long handle on the tomahawk made a huge difference. It just falls naturally and is really easy to work with on any bush task.

Fluff the fatwood by scraping the stick with the edge of your striker. If a hunting knife is available, use the BACK of the blade to fluff.

Step 2.

Practice getting a spark to land on the pile of fluffed fatwood by using your ferro rod and the edge of your striker.

Step 3.

Direct the sparks to the top of the pile of fluffed fatwood by using your QUICK-FIRE and the edge of the Striker. (Or use the back of a blade)
