A good small functional axe is always a must-have in any outdoorsman’s backpack. I recently got a chance to review the Off Grid Tools Survival Axe and was not disappointed.

The Off Grid Tools Survival Axe has 31 built-in features for just about any survival condition. It is also a great option to keep in your car for an emergency situation. It is a well-designed axe.

I was able to test this axe, including several of its features. The first thing a noticed was how well it feels in your hands. It has a nice grip and weight. It is easy to carry around.
The blade of this axe is sharp, right out of its sheath. The Off Grid Tools Survival Axe easily chopped the wood I had on hand, so you could build a fire. With any axe, it’s size will limit how long it can take to chop a pile of wood. This axe gave me even and effective strikes.
The 6-inch saw did a decent job sawing through a piece of wood. It did take a bit of effort to get a rhythm going. It is a nice feature to have in an axe. Many times a saw can be helpful when building a structure because it allows for smooth cuts when compared to an axe. The saw blade locked firmly into place during sawing and folded up into the handle nicely after I was done.
Hammer and Claw
The hammer is well sized and shaped. It easily drove in loose nails. It also comes with an effective hammer claw and pry bar. I was really impressed with these features. It truly makes this axe a survival axe.
The protective sheath is made of nylon and covers the axe well. It has a Velcro strap the holds it firmly in place. It also has a convenient loop to attach it to a carabiner or tie down.
The Off Grid Tools Survival Axe is small enough to fit snugly into my backpack. I was easily able to place it in my pack and zip it up. You could also attach it to the outside of your pack to save room.
