Outdoorsmen and women might want to consider adding the Joseph Bowen Micro Hatchet to their equipment box. This mini axe is designed to be used with only one hand and is sharp enough to cut through bone. Here's hoping it wasn't designed with a scenario from '127 Hours' in mind.
The Joseph Bowen Micro Hatchet takes 60 steps to produce and is designed for portability. Its small size allows it to be worn around the neck on a lanyard (it comes with a sheath). The hatchet's sharpness and light weight make it ideal for those who like to travel light when roughing it. The Joseph Bowen Micro Hatchet is sold by TAD (Triple Aught Design) and retails for $160.
