Parkour with multiple blade-tosses, including one with a laser-equipped SOG tomahawk. Francis Marion would have been so proud.



SOG-Parkour-1Now would this guy have fit in with Rogers Rangers or one of the other Colonial Era scout outfits? We're not sure. But consider rule XIII from Robert Rogers Rules of Order and Discipline.

XIII. In general, when pushed upon by the enemy, reserve your fire till they approach very near, which will put them into the greater surprise and consternation, and give you an opportunity of rushing upon them with your hatchets and cutlasses to the better advantage.

That sounds a little gorier than transitioning from your primary long gun to a sidearm, but it sounds more cathartic too. SOT has a number of tomahawks in their product line: a couple versions of “Fast Hawk”, the “Survival Hawk”, a couple tactical tomahawks and one for throwing, then a couple of what they call Voodoo Hawks. You can find them all online right here.

Here's a little history of SOG in their own words.

Our story begins in Vietnam, where members of a highly classified US special ops unit – known as MACV-SOG – carried a unique combat knife into the jungle on covert missions. Years later, in 1986, that knife inspired a young designer, named Spencer Frazer, to found SOG Specialty Knives. His mission: to reproduce the original SOG Bowie knife and pay tribute to the special ops unit that created it. What began as a single commemorative model soon became a full line of innovative tools – field-proven by US Special Forces, even honored as the Navy SEAL knife of choice. Today, SOG knives are carried with confidence into the most demanding situations. Forged out of tradition, hardened in the field, honed for you.

So whether you're protecting others or leading an epic hunting expedition, tackling one of life's everyday challenges or facing your most extreme conditions yet, lead the way with SOG.
