This wiki has been edited 9 times since it was first published in February of 2018. Serious sportsmen know that, when it comes to outdoor recreation and survival, it's important to have specialized tools in your arsenal for whatever Mother Nature throws at you. The hunting axe is one such instrument, differing as it does from its more standard counterparts in its versatility, portability, and knife-like sharpness. Our list covers a variety of options, from hatchets to tomahawks. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work.

He’s an avid biker, hiker, climber, skier, and budget backpacker -- basically, anything that allows him a reprieve from his keyboard. His most recent rovings took him to Peru, where he trekked throughout the Cordillera Blanca.
