Tactical Tomahawks: Strider Hatchet

Strider knives are know for bulletproof knives that can handle insane abuse.  The Strider Hatchet was built in the same vein as their other tools:  Sturdy and bombproof.  This heavy-duty hatchet is more of a breaching tool than a fighting tomahawk style weapon.

Here are the specs on the Strider Hatchet XL(pictured above)according to the Strider website:
