Tim Ferriss Throwing Axe from The Random Show – SOG F01T Tactical Tomahawk
If you’re a fan of The Random Show — the podcast about random topics by Kevin Rose and Tim Ferriss — then you may have seen Episode 21 (at 17:30 in the show) when Tim Ferriss was talking about a throwing axe he had. I thought it looked super cool, but Tim did not say what kind of axe it is. So, I did some visual research and tracked it down. Turns out, Tim was showing off his SOG F01T Tactical Tomahawk.
This thing is cool, and it’s not that expensive — only about $32 on Amazon. Here’s some more information from the manufacturer:
Heavy-Duty Components Meet Military-Grade Needs
The F01T-N’s 420 stainless steel head has a 2.75-inch edge and is coated in a scratch-resistant, black oxide coating for reduced reflectivity. The head is mounted to a polymer handle with heavy duty bolts. The handle has as a steel ferrule to prevent splitting, and side hammer checkering ensures precise placement when pounding.
Ergonomic, Lightweight Design Ensures Comfortable Use
Even if your blade is sharp, it’s hard to make precise cuts if your axe doesn’t fit comfortably in your hand. That’s why this axe features a unique, ergonomic handle. Crafted from tough, ballistic polymer, the textured handle is slip-free, durable, and well-balanced. Also, at just 24 ounces, the F01T-N is lightweight and easy to carry, and it comes with a nylon sheath for added safety.
This axe is backed by a one-year warranty that protects against defects in manufacturing and materials.
