The problem with bringing a nice ax camping is that your friends just don’t appreciate it the way you do. No, you can’t pound in your titanium tent stakes with my beautiful ax, jerk!
The Outland Equipment Multi-Mission Ax aims for a diplomatic answer. The back end of the ax works like a hammer. The end of the handle is a pry bar. It also has built in hex-nut tools, and (becasue why not?) a seatbelt cutter. The full tang ax is made of S7 steel and comes in 15- and 17-inch lengths.
