SOG's modern battle/throwing axe evokes its origins from medieval times, which some might consider to be the present. Whether used as a target axe, SWAT tool, universal back up, or hung above the fireplace; it is very effective. The pike in the back is up-swept for better target penetration. Size and heft are balanced for optimum swing control. The handle is made from G10 and the entire solid blade is protected with SOG's Hardcased coating.
