Okay, fine. You're looking for a little DRAMA when it comes to personal defense? The SOG Voodoo Tomahawk qualifies. The truth is it may actually be less effective than a long heavy stick, but having this sharp hunk of metal around satisfies a certain kind of macho hunger. We get it. But it's a bit more of a handy item — or even a luxury — than a critical one. We probably wouldn't bring it along in our go-bag, either.
SOG F18-N Voodoo Hawk Tomahawk
WHERE TO BUY
Importance: Handy to luxury...
Bottom line: Self defense item, but perhaps more of a bark than actual bite. Hopefully you'd scare away an attacker, because you don't want to get close enough to have to actually use it.
Recommended for: Home shetter.
If you were trained in this weapon, you would be a bad-ass. But you don't want to get this close to any attacker, if possible.
SOG makes very sturdy and good products. And this is also good if you'd need to break a window or pry something.
