Hi
Chemical pesticides are often used to control diseases, pests or weeds. Chemical control is based on substances that are toxic (poisonous) to the pests involved. When chemical pesticides are applied to protect plants from pests, diseases or overgrowth by weeds, we speak of plant protection products. It is of course important that the plant that needs protection does not itself suffer from the toxic effects of the protection products.

My review of the SOG Survival Hawk is over.
I really like it. I think its a must have in your BOV,UTV, or even a BOB. I’ve used it for everything its was intended for, and more. Its not a,throwing Hawk, but I practiced with it, and it can work ok. If the blade didn’t stick in the wood the spike/nail puller would. Also the Fero rod didn’t break during any of the impacts. In fact the Ferro Rod is still in good shape even after I’ve made sparks during 3 outings.
The Hawk will chop through green Maple, Pine, Poplar, and Holly trees. That’s all I tested with diameters of 6″ or less. It makes,pretty large chips when chopping.
I mentioned earlier, that this Hawk may replace my fixed blades. I don’t think that way anymore. This Hawk is not a replacement for a good fixed blade. You just need a good fixed blade in the bush. I will definitely keep this Hawk close by. In hand to hand combat it rules over a knife, and pretty much anyone can swing a Hawk, and do damage.

Oh heck yes this rod will break. There’s a you tube video on it.
I’ve used it 3 times without breaking it
The ferro rod is a nice touch/gimmick, but I definitely didn’t buy this Hawk because it had a .25 cent Rambo fire starter in it. :-). I would have preferred some kind of sharpening steel instead. Oh well when I’m in charge at SOG there’s going to be some big changes. :gunshooting:

:offtopic: ssssssssssss…….HA!!! fixed it with a quick internet search. HP support center created a shortcut into itself assigning the letter “s”….That would have been frustrating to no end.

In case anyone runs into that issue go to start window….right click “HP support” (It might be under “all programs” if not right there)….click the “Shortcut” tab…..Delete any shortcut typed there.(Mine said it was “ALT+SHIFT+S” but only “s” was triggering it)…..apply changes and save…..Viola!

Sorry for the tech interrupt on your thread but this might help a random person. :D
let us know if the fire rod breaks…..NBD but curious if it happens on yours too.

Thanks again for the review mountain. :thumbup:

Good review. I’ve looked at these, but since I have a Cold Steel hawk with the hammer poll I’ll probably stick with it. Works well for everything I have used it on so far. But then again a body does need a back up. I’m more of a bushcraft kinda guy as well.

Yeah thanks, and i agree with you. Your Hawk seems to work for you, and that’s great.
I’m not brand loyal, although I do have several folders,and fixed blade SOG’s. Lots of other brands as well. I really wanted to find out for myself if a Survival Tomahawk would be of use to me; 1st for using around my property, secondly to actually see if this type of Hawk would be a good addition to my BOV,BOB, and my SXS. If it turns out that I find its a good tool to have, I may invest in a custom Hawk.
I think I may have a Hawk problem like I do for Knifes. :thumbup:

I”m still evaluating this Hawk. As for chopping small branches out of your way; its better than a large fixed blade, better than a full size Hatchet, but not as good as a Gurka, or a Machete. The reason I say its better than a Hatchet is purely its size and weight.
To split larger wood pieces, I would just drive the Hawks blade deep, and then take a good strong branch and pound on the full tang spine. Since the blade is thin, it just goes right through it . its not easy, but it works.
It does have a hammer face (2), but if your working in close it would no doubt be more difficult than a Hawk with a dedicated hammer end. its also not balanced for this kind of work which makes it uncomfortable to use has a hammer. pounding in some stakes on the ground will work good. So far my fixed blades are lonely, when i go in the Bush.

I’m using the CRKT hawk with the hammer end ( I’m more of a bush craft ) . I don’t know how I made it before my hawk? Oh yah a big (Censored word. I’m a potty mouth) knife. Anyway, way more functional. the hammer end works well for splitting kindling when hit with a dead-blow hammer.

Tested it out some yesterday and today. I tried splitting a half round of Poplar. I managed to do it in about 20 strikes. The blade is thin, the Hawk is lite. It will bury the face of the cutting edge in the wood. Not great for splitting, but the penetration for such a lightweight Hawk is impressive.
Next I tried making some wood spear tips. Since the SOG is lite, and very maneuverable it makes this process real easy. Put your thumb on the backbone of the full tang, and you can get a close grip on the cutting edge and make some very nice. Precision cuts. I really like this. It makes good fire starting chips Quick. Did I mention when carrying with the included sheath is very comfortable. As far as deploying it in a hurry. Forget about it. The sheath is horrible. It does have some eyelets on it to attach to your pack or gear. I’ll no doubt do this, and make a custom sheath for it.
Anyway I’m liking it so far.

I agree with RickDun.

I know in some areas out in the West they have coy competitions.
In the summer, every year, I wake up from a dead sleep to the sound of coy howling in the not so far distance.
Once, while the wife and I were moving the cows, late one afternoon, early evening, heard a pack close by. Like still on our property, quarter mile close. Enough to make your hair stand on end.

I found this story earlier:
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/04/05/cy … s-use.html

The parents of an Idaho boy injured by a government-planted cyanide “bomb” have filed a petition calling on the White House to ban the controversial devices, used for decades by the Agriculture Department to control predators.

Here are the specifics on the device:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M44_%28cyanide_device%29

Doubt these are used in my area, but I was surprised a hazardous chemical agent like cyanide would be deployed for pest management in a projectile form, almost like a landmine. As the top story proves, the public can be exposed. Or someone with ill-intent could get access to these items.

Personally I think chemical projectors should be banned and instead more traditional methods should be used to cull predatory species. But while they remain in use, this could be a hazard to watch out for in a SHTF future, especially if the spider hole crowd or others re-purpose it.
