A LITTLE CLARITY IS NEEDEDApr 28, 2009
I purchased this hawk last year and I am very happy with it. I too looked at the mixed reviews and then did my homework. It needs pointing out that SOG have made two versions of this hawk. The first was with a hardwood handle. I believe the bad reviews are probably from people who bought these. I imagine that is why SOG came out with another version which featured a plastic handle. This is the type I purchased. The design is the same as the earlier model, but the new handle makes all the difference. I have abused mine by cutting tree limbs and throwing, and apart from a few scuffs and dirt, the head still sits snug like when it first arrived. Granted you could purchase a super tomahawk that would cost a huge amount, but for the price this hawk suits me fine. Apart from function it is also a nice looking tool/weapon which is suitable for both CQB or light breach work. As another reviewer stated, the sheath is good as it is one of the faster to draw from sheaths I have seen, and allows it to drop straight in to your hand. If money is no object then go for the super deluxe models being sold, but if that's not the case you won't be dissapointed with this product. Just make sure you purchase the newer style plastic handle.

sog fusion tomahawkJan 29, 2010
By JEFF MURRAY
Amazon will not let me put the video in, so go to youtube type in Sog Fusion under handbook live. The video says it all.
It obviously would not take the abuse that my K5 tactical spike does, but I see no breakage with this product. . It will go through cinder blocks, bricks, I slammed it through a truck hood. A 63 ford truck hood to be exact. It will knock out glass and clear the sill. It will chop 2x4's in half. It would be a very useful entry tool, (simply drive the spike next to the door latch and kick). It will puncture tires so a suspect could not get away in a car. It will split smaller pieces of green wood. The hawk face is quite sharp and maintains a good edge even when chopping edgewise into heavy gauge sheet metal. The face is not down swept as a fighting hawk would be. But it would still hold it's own. With proper technique applied you could chop into the spine the throat and still hook and disarm an opponent. The spike is not sharpened all of the way around. It has more of a chisel edge that is great for chopping holes in cinder blocks to have firing holes to engage enemy targets. I have had no problem with using this product as it was intended. Remember this is a breacher/ extraction tool. You wouldn't use a screw driver as a hammer would you? Don't answer that. It held up very well to my abuse. To me this is a self defense weapon and tactical breeching tool. The lightness of the handle and it being head heavy gives it a balance and allows you to get a decent swing from the hawk. This is definitely not a slashing type of hawk. To be a good slasher the hawk face needs to have a belly or down sweep. In the future from Sog I would like to see a better head design. Get rid of the holes, give us the full weight and a better head attachment. But let's be honest. If you want an axe by an axe. If you want a thrower by a one piece Gil Hibben. This stands up well to the everyday challenges presented to it. If your handle broke? Send it back and get another one. The Chinese QC is iffy at best. Americans should know that by now. Send it back and get another one or order the American tomahak CQC $295.00 or in my oppinion the best tomahawk on the market today is the K5 tactical Spike $199.00. In my opinion ( former Marine) 14 years. I have used tomahawks throughout my life. In service and out. This is a very decent hawk for the price. I would recommend this as a entry level hawk to anyone interested in owning one but does not have 200 or 300 dollars to spend. You get the same features in the hawk that the higher priced ones have.

Perfect For BackpackingMay 15, 2010
I used to carry a machete for clearing trails and cutting firewood along with a folding shovel. Now I just carry this tomahawk. I discovered this tool when a friend of mine bought one first. I've used my a fair amount; he's used his extensively. I use it to cut firewood, dig holes, driving tent stakes, pulling tent stakes (see the holes in the blade? perfect!), and for entertainment. When all your chores are done, it's fun to throw this well balanced axe. After many poor throws, this tomahawk has show it's durability. I've also used the axe to pry wood apart and am surprised the handle holds up as well as it has. For the price, the quality of the tool is simply amazing. It's also extremely light. I highly recommend.

Great product!Jun 28, 2008
By Big Fred
Anyone looking for a well made and well designed hand axe for up close and personal nastiness, look no further. This is it! SOG knows what they are doing. The design is all business. The axe blade comes shaving sharp so take this as a warning. They have even ground the upper and lower blade points to a needle sharpness. The oppossing pick end is ground from six angles making it very functional. The pick is flared at the end so that it will create a larger wound channel and remove easily. The axe head is securely attached to the metal handle shaft with 4 star screws and there is a metal reinforcing ring around the area where the metal shaft is joined to the nylon handle. The weight and balance (towards the axe head) are perfect. They get kudos for the scabbard design. It is intended for a fignting axe. It drops the axe into your hand from the bottom opening scabbard with one handed ease. Looks, feels, and functions as a weapon should. I should have known as I own other SOG knives and they are all quality products. Even though this is one of their import products you can see it is still SOG all the way. Exactly what I was looking for!

Decent "Hawk" for the money.May 30, 2010
In Vietnam, American Special Forces soldiers soon learned a lesson their ancestors knew very well--a tomahawk is better than a knife for close combat. In spite of its popularity, my own opinion of the Vietnam tomahawk has always been that it's a wimpy little ax, with a head that's too small for real work and a handle that will snap like a twig. It's a crude blunt instrument that looks like an ax. The SOG Fusion Tactical Tomahawk takes the concept behind the Vietnam Special Forces ax and gets rid of the many problems.
Weight is a major concern whether you are a hunter or a soldier, and you need a lot of positives to carry a 24 oz axe as a regular part of your kit. The SOG Fusion justifies every ounce. The steel ax head, with the traditional military spike for balance, has a 2 3/4" straight edge that's properly ground so you can efficiently chop wood or heavy bone. Hunters of big game often find a small ax to be more efficient at butchering tasks than a heavy knife, something nearly everyone knew in the frontier days.
The weakest point of the old Vietnam axe was the wooden handle, too thin at the juncture with the axe head to be reliable. The Fusion has a much less destructible fiberglass handle with rubberized grip. Once marketed as "unbreakable," fiberglass proved to be much less than perfect as a tool handle. The tang and rivet attachment of head to handle that you see in the Fusion is an excellent solution to the old issue of head separation, a puzzle that smiths have battled for centuries. Used with some skill, this combination really should last forever. In camp you'll find it's endlessly practical.
