SOG's Tactical Tomahawk features a 420 stainless steel head with hard case coating to provide durability and utility. The matte black coating prevents shine, and keeps the tool low profile. The head has two holes bored in it that both decrease its weight and allow it to be utilized for prying tasks. Unlike many other 'hawks, this one has a spike opposite of the blade, which can be used as a weapon, a digging pick, a glass breaker and for countless other chores. On each side of the head where ti connects to the handle, a small square space is adorned with checkering. These hammer spots can be used to drive stakes and nails.
