APOC Double Mukk Hatchet
New from APOC Survival Tools is the Double Mukk
- a small go-anywhere hatchet that is a modern reimagining of the small axe in Nessmuk's famed trio of wilderness tools
, with a little Viking DNA thrown in for the grins. This full tang hatchet is only 12" in length but the thick 9260 spring steel head packs a punch for limbing and shelter prep. Perfectly concealable in a bug-out bag or under the seat of your truck with the belt, lashing and MOLLE compatible sheath. The Viking-style bearded head lets you choke up to easily make feather sticks, prep some kindling or whittle notches for traps.
A unique feature of the Double Mukk
is the duo-grind - one head is flat ground for carving and fine work while the other has a heavy convex grind for limbing and splitting. The whole hatchet is milled from a single piece of 9260 spring steel that's tempered to the low 50's HRC. Handle scales are solid milled G10, contoured for comfort with a swell at the end to keep it in your hand.
The Double-Bit Downfall? - How to Drive Stakes
While my camp hatchet gets used plenty for making kindling it's the poll that sees just as much use around our camp-outs driving in stakes that have been left 6" out of the ground by well-meaning Scouts. With a double-bit you can simply use the flat of the blade to do the same task, but how to get the stake started and keep your hand out of the way? We extended the butt of the handle on the Double Mukk enough to serve as a striking surface. A couple of starting taps from the handle and you're good to go. --Blake
