The Flying Fox is an adventure hatchet that takes a few shifty, conspicuous glances left and right, looks you dead in the eyes and and through a mischievous smirk says "......I dare you."
This is the latest addition to the much improved Council Tool Co. Sport Utility line of axes.
This resilient, aerodynamic, little bruiser is just as comfortable soaring through the air as it is relaxing next to the campfire, reveling in the heat of the wood it just prepared. At just under 1.75 lbs the hatchet not only qualifies as a competitive throwing axe but is also an amazing option for anyone backpacking or canoeing into the wilderness.
Here is a hatchet that your wife, child, or local hippy would not be afraid of picking up and using! No more rainy off days in the woods while the kids complain about being bored. Grab your Flying Fox, find some standing dead wood, and have a camp throwing competition!
The sleek design is an amalgamation of a few mid 20th century hatchets with a few modern touches thrown in. The flying fox also carries a hardened poll, an attribute that is unusual (because the the extra effort the process of dual hardening requires) to find on such an inexpensive hatchet!
This hardened poll allows the user to safely use the Flying Fox to things such as pound tent stakes, smash old toilets, test steel toed boots, and even bounce off the ground safely (for it...you may want to stay on your toes) on the off chance you ever hit a throwing target wrong while using it!
Long story short. This adventure hatchet is an all around bushcraft tool that is a capable, pack-able, and all around incredible piece of gear to take with you into the woods or to throw at a target. The Flying Fox can take anything you throw at it and anything you throw it at!
