I try not to get taken in by gizmos and gadgets but, that does look cool.

It would have a sheath, obviously...maybe two sheaths, one for each end... and I think it could tweaked a bit to make it a bit more useful...

IMHO it looks rather taticool, but to each their own

Vec put some thought into it and for what it is, it's pretty nifty. It works as a minimalist type kit that serves as a "odd" sharp edge-knife, but can also be used as an axe/hawk or digging tool after improvising a handle. I'll admit, it's not for everyone, but it's fun to play with. I need to get some Kydex pants for it as I don't care to have it flopping in a pouch.

That's where Vector started...making CS Trailhawks with synthetic handles that are bomb-proof. CS may have some controversial marketing, but they've done some things quite well and their hawks are actually very effective for the price!

It does look very tacti-cool. Well thought up. I'll stick with the knife and axe combo that I have now... but I'd love to see this eco hawk in use.

It looks like it'd be a better weapon than a viable woodcutting tool.
Not that hawks are the best option for woodcutting:rolleyes::D

Not hating on hawks...I'm a hawk lover meself. Just pointing out that as a hawk...that's a fail!

I would have to drill out a quater inch hole in a shaft that has been hafted, then another quarter inch hole thru the center of the hawk to make it meet my standards, dont get me wrong its a cool concept! but i would be better served with a slip head hawk any day of the week for strength and durabilty!

Scores decently high on the cool factor. However, I think I'd rather just carry a regular ax or hawk head. Given that you can cut with either, and you still have to find a handle for either, it would be nicer to have a head that is more secure.
